No stick-um pan
A non-stick pan is a must. And theoretically, an omelet pan should only be used for omelets. Otherwise you run into sticking.

The French serve an omelet for lunch or supper. Never for breakfast.
Use 2-3 eggs per omelet inorder to ensure it cooks correctly and retain the tender quality of a french omelet.
Lessons from Julia is a weekly series where I post what I am learning from watching episodes of The French Chef with Julia Child starting at season 1, episode 1.
