Tips for using an omelette pan
It is not that these pans work in a completely different way from the conventional ones, but there are certain tips or tricks that are sure to come in handy if it is the first time you use one of these:
- Before placing the lid and turning the tortilla, pass it over a fire with a little oil, just enough so that it is warm. This will prevent the tortilla from sticking and breaking.
- The main idea of these pans is to make the process of turning the tortilla easier, and one of the things they prevent is losing liquid. Therefore, make sure that it is as closed as possible. Of course, the only one that ensures that not a drop is spilled is the BRA.
- Although this applies to all pans, it is important to remember, pay special attention to the care of the non-stick. Many people think that since it is a pan for tortillas, that it will never stick because they are “designed for it.” But nothing is further from the truth, if you don’t take care of your non-stick it will end up sticking very soon.
