Would this be the perfect pancake maker pans that were out? 


Fear is just excitement in need of an attitude adjustment!

I forget if I ever described my "Flip Jack" pan that is good for making
omlets as well as pancakes.

It is a small sized, double frying pan.On one side the pans are hinged
together and on the other side there are two handles that run paralelle with
each other. You set the pan on top of your burner, let it heat and add
whatever type of no-stick spray, butter or margarine you like. Then add your
egg and ingredients. Close down the top lid A.K.A. top pan and let the egg
get firm. Once firm, you just hold both handles together and flip both pans
so now the top pan/lid is on the bottom touching the burner and the bottom
pan has become the top pan/lid. When done you'll have a perfectly shaped
round egg or pancake and it will slide easily out onto a plate.

I originally saw these about 4 years ago on a late-night TV (as seen on TV)
add. I had to order it by phone. The phone ordering system made me feel like
I was buying swamp property in Florida, but I eventually got through it and
about 1 month later got the pan.

After enough use, however, the pan became a bit warped and would not stay
steady on the burner. When pouring into the heated pan it could be very
dangerous. I had to get rid of it. It was inexpensive enough and I liked it
enough that my husband went and found another one on Amazon.com

I don't know if they still sell them.

One omlet maker I had a while back was a half-moon-shaped container that had
the closure on the rounded sides and what passed for a hinge on the other
side.  Something like this could be made from ceramics.  The difficult part
would be the hinges though these wouldn't be impossible. 
A way to insure those hinges keep working after the ceramic comes out of the
kiln is to wrap the pin assembly that goes through the rings before the
rings are ever made and secured to the other part of the omlet container.
The paper is left on the pin or pins as the ceramic goes into the kiln then
the kiln burns that paper out of the hinges.  Because the paper was wrapped
around the pin (maybe wrap two or three thicknesses), the rings after they
got dried and fired will remain larger than the pin or pins and that's how
the container can open and close if it were made along this design.  Another
possibility would use more ceramic and no hinges of any kind.  It would have
a single type flat bowl and a container that the bowl slides into sideways,
though that might be a bit messy if turned over during cooking process.  The
outside container would be a flat five sided box with one side open into
which the bowl got placed.  Unfortunately, I haven't got access to a
ceramics studio nor do I own one otherwise I'd make a few of these for
members of this list.

think it was around $7 or so, but I don't remember for sure now. I would
love to find one made out of glass or ceramic instead of plastic. The
concept works really well, but I don't like cooking in plastic because of
health concerns. Meanwhile, I am using the plastic version. I didn't know
Tupper Ware had one too, but do know their version is more expensive than
the one I found.

Well, ... it wasn't.  <g<  But some folks are great at it.

You start with the veggies on the bottom, and you add the cheese after the
omelet is done.  (the heat melts the cheese)  When I get mine, I'll give
directions, but I have a sighted friend that loves hers.
