How to use your microwave omelette cooker

Updated February 21, 2017

Make fast tasty omelettes in your microwave with your microwave omelette cooker. Customise each omelette with toppings diced small to steam quickly as the eggs cook. Serve a quick protein-rich breakfast straight from the microwave that requires very little cleanup.

Clean your microwave omelette cooker completely before the very first and between uses in hot soapy water with a soft sponge. The inside and outside of the omelette maker will require a full scrubbing or trip through a cycle on the top rack of your dishwasher if your model allows.

Crack three large eggs and add two tbsp of milk or water to a bowl. Mix lightly with a fork by breaking the yolk and blending the two ingredients without whipping air into your mix.

Split your egg mixture evenly between the two channels of the microwave omelette pan and snap the lid closed before carefully setting it into the microwave.

Cook your eggs on medium power in the microwave for 2 minutes or until the eggs just begin to congeal. Remove the omelette cooker and stir the eggs with a clean fork pulling the more-cooked outsides into the less-cooked inside.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of diced onion, tomato or green pepper on top of both partially cooked eggs and cover with a total of 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.

Reseal your microwave omelette cooker and return it to the microwave for another one to two minutes of cooking on medium power or until the cheese fully melts.

Use a clean fork to slide the cooked omelette onto a plate, season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste and serve with a sprig of parsley.


Experiment with various ratios and combinations of ingredients by making each channel of your omelette maker different. Search your refrigerator for leftovers to sprinkle in and new cheeses to melt on top. Egg substitutes will work in the recipe as well; just shake the carton and pour it directly into your clean omelette cooker. Skip adding the milk or water and slightly shorten your first half cooking time.


Incorporating air into your eggs by vigorously whipping them before they go into the microwave may cause an explosion and a big mess if your omelette maker comes open.
