View Full Version : Omlettes, Crepes Sticking
02-15-2005, 07:43 PM
Whenever I try to make an omlette, or a crepe, they always seem to stick to the pan. Thus, they fall apart when I try to turn them over, and not only that but they are usualy burned as well.
How should I go about fixing this? It kind of ruins the meal in a way, and a burnt omlette doesnt really taste too well :\ Any ideas?

pam spray? or a non stick skillet?

try using more fat in the skillet u are cooking in...be it butter, olive oil, veggie oil etc....
If you don't want it sticking at all you're going to have to use some sort of fat, but your first priority should be purchasing a non-stick pan.

Well I do have the buttery spray (I cant belive its not butter), o calories, 0 fats.
So I assume that doesnt work then?
Anyway, how much do non-sticking pans generaly go for?

Prolly about 12 bucks up to 20 bucks, non stick pans are kick ass, just dont put it in the dish washer, you just need a try towl to clean it with..

big tex... why can't you put the pan's in the dishwasher? if you have a decent pan, putting it in the dishwasher shouldn't cause any problems. I've had mine for quite awhile and clean it via the dishwasher repeatedly.
who gave you that non-stick pan myth?

Im a chef and I cook on the non stick pans up to 30 times a day, and we have found they last longer if you just wipe them with a dry towl. If they are a good quality pan, and if you dont make a huge mess, there should be no reason to put it in the dish washer
Just my .02

You can also get one of those pump action oil sprayers. That's what I use to coat the pan before cooking.
