Cooking an omelette:

Hi. I'm no cook, but I want to improve my health ( I have type 2 diabetes). And on that score, I think making omelettes might be a healthy thing to do. I don't have a hob of any kind.

Today I was looking at omelette makers. In short, after looking at reviews, I came to the conclusion that I'll be disappointed if I buy one. Because the non-stick surface will quickly wear off, and the omelette will probably be too mushy in the inside. Probably the best way to make an omelette is some old-fashioned way.

Okay, so by way of searching the internet, I have been drawn to consider an electric griddle, with a flat surface of stainless steel.

My question is: Would buying an electric griddle, with a flat surface made of stainless steel, be a good decision in light of my desire to make omelettes? Thanks. Rich

I think you'd be better served with a stand alone induction hob. Then use compatible pans. Omelette technique is pretty much pan oriented.

Ceramic pans seem to be more durable than teflon.

I would suggest a setup similar to this and a pan.

I suggest watching Jacques Pepin make omelets and practice till you get the technique down. It's more about technique, but the right type of pan will yield better more consistent results.

You can make scrambled(ish) eggs in the microwave. I’ve even heard of making scrambled eggs by dropping them in boiling water. But you can’t make an omelette unless you have a burner and a good pan.
