Yes I am aware I spelled “omelette/omelet” differently in the title of this post. I spent way too long researching the correct way to spell it and in the end gave up. For the record, it’s derived from French so it really should be “omelette” but I’m also doing a review of an “omelet” maker so you’re just gonna have to roll with me on this…
I’ve decided I could never date somebody who cooks. If my significant other ever tried to boss me around in the kitchen then we would have one serious problem on our hands. The kitchen is my happy place, but that doesn’t mean I can’t become a total bossy-pants if someone tries to take over.
On the first night I met C he told me he could cook. I was impressed but also a little worried about how we’d manage having two cooks in the kitchen (yes I was thinking about our future on night #1). This never ended up being a problem because I quickly discovered that C’s “go-to dish”, Brie and Mango Chutney was actually just store-bought chutney on top of a wheel of brie. I can legitimately hear C yelling at his computer claiming he is so much more capable as I type this.
True, my man is much more capable. He is the king of eggs. This I appreciate because like my pancake flipping skills, eggs are not my strong suit. I can just barely scramble eggs let alone make an omelette! Perfect segue into…my new Lékué Omelet Maker! This thing is seriously amazing. I can go from egg carton to table in under 3 minutes. Winning!
Before you go all “microwaves will kill you” on me, I’ll tell you to shut off your computer and throw your cell phone out the window. Glad we got that out of the way. Now I can tell you about my awesome new toy. Basically you throw everything into this 100% platinum silicone mould (BPA free too!), stick it in the microwave and zap, omelette.
Pretty cool right? I don’t need no man to cook my eggs (okay that sounded bad…) with my Lékué Omelet Maker!
