How to Make the Perfect Omelet

OXO Good Grips Flip and Fold Omelet Turner

I have been sent an OXO Good Grips Flip and Fold Omelet Turner to try out.  It has a large flexible silicone head and a thick, soft handle which makes it comfortable to hold and easy to grip.

I tested it out by making cheese and onion omelets for the family.  I really liked the fact that the silicone head conformed to the shape of the frying pan, allowing me to go around and underneath the omelet with ease.  The large size of the head allowed me to fold the omelet over without it breaking.  The design of the Flip and Fold Omelet Turner really does make the process easier.  It felt really nice to use as it glides around the edge of the pan, bending to conform to its shape.  No more fighting with rigid, square ended fish slices!  I love to use silicone products in the kitchen because of their flexibility and the fact that they can withstand heat so well.  this is another great product in the OXO Good Grips range.

The shape and size also makes this an ideal tool to use as a spatula for baking (to scrape cake mix from a large bowl for example).  It's a really nice item and a welcome addition to my kitchen.

Recipe for Cheese and Onion Omelet


2 eggs
ground pepper
splash of milk
a quarter of an onion diced
1 oz grated cheddar
oil to fry


Fry the onion in a little oil until softened.
Beat the egg, milk and ground pepper together.
Pour over cooked onion.
Cook gently until edges firm up,
Grate cheese over the top.
Use the Flip and Fold Omelet turner to release the edges and fold omelet in half.
Cook gently until the egg is set and the cheese is melted.

The thing I love about omelets is that you can use whatever you have in the fridge to make them.  Try frying grated carrot and courgette with the onion, or add chopped Quorn ham or sliced mushrooms with the cheese.  Use different cheeses such as Stilton or Mexicana to add a different flavour.

The OXO Good Grips Flip and Fold Omelet Turner is just £8.
