I Need Some Flipping Help please

peppermint pate | Jul 13, 2006 01:00 PM

I was making a yummy Spanish tortilla the other day when I hit the part of the recipe that I dread. It involves flipping the half-cooked tortilla on to a plate and then sliding the uncooked side back into the pan. I have a Calphalon non-stick pan - maybe it's 8 inches or so - which I find quite heavy to lift with one hand - I can do it but it's hard to balance and flip. So when I'm trying to manoeuver the pan in one hand and the plate in the other, it just all feels a bit awkward. If my husband is home, we do it as a 2-person job. In the absence of a) only making this recipe when someone else is home; and b) lifting weights to pump up my biceps - any suggestions? Thanks.
