Omelette pan for French omelettes

lk145 | Nov 5, 2011 05:19 PM

I want to get a pan for making French omelettes. Chef Pepin and the other posts on chowhound about this recommend non-stick aluminum for eggs, but French omelettes require high heat and I prefer to use a metal fork to stir the egg. I'm hesitant to buy a non-stick pan that I'll be using at high temperatures while stirring with a metal fork both because of the health concerns and because it's going to get destroyed pretty quickly.

Is there a good alternative? I can't spend $160 bucks on the Pot Shop of Boston omelette pan. I'm willing to put the effort into seasoning a pan, so would something like a de Buyer blue steel fry pan work for eggs?
