Omelets range from simple to extravagant, depending on the filling, but they don't have to be difficult to prepare. Cooking an omelet in the microwave is a simple and time-saving way to create this popular breakfast dish. A microwave omelet pan makes the process even easier, and saves you the trouble of flipping the omelet. Plus, because a microwave omelet pan is designed to allow for a quick release, cleanup is far simpler than when you cook an omelet on the stove top.
