Omelette Pan?

Dan97526 | May 27, 2007 01:53 PM

I've recently started to try to make omelettes using the classic flip-&-fold technique (see Julia or St Jacques). I have only All-Clad stainless, cast iron, and a commercial non-stick pan. Obviously the non-stick was my first choice, but I'm not really a fan of it.

I do have a deBuyer black steel crepe pan that I use just for crepes. However, looking around online recently I found that deBuyer has way more in black steel than just a crepe pan. I love cooking on black steel, and at the price I wouldn't balk at having a pan I use only for omelettes.

Several questions:

Where is a good place to buy deBuyer online? Googling it yields up very few useable hits. And the beBuyer website appears to only be a front splash page.

What size of pan is suitable for 3-egg omelettes? What shape of pan; World Cuisine has what they call their "Lyon-shaped" frypan.

Is the black steel sold by World Cuisine deBuyer or some other manufacturer? I have saw on the board that the WC stuff may be made in China (which I try to avoid), while IIRC deBuyer is made in France.

Thanks, all help is appreciated.
