Progressive microwave omelet maker instructions

Updated February 18, 2018

Some people can't make an omelette to save their life. Either the egg is too runny in the middle or it tears when getting folded and looks like a mess. Save your pans and your temper and use the Progressive microwave omelette cooker instead. If you can stir eggs and chop vegetables you can make a tasty omelette right in your microwave. It will keep its perfect omelette shape and cook well done and fluffy every time.

Crack up to four eggs into a bowl and whip them with a fork until they are light yellow and foamy. If you prefer, you can use commercial egg substitutes. Use 1/4 cup of egg substitute for every egg in your omelette.

Dice your omelette fillings into 1/4-inch pieces or smaller. The filling variety is up to you. You can experiment with vegetables, cooked meats and cheeses to find your favourite flavours.

Pour half of the egg into each half of the omelette maker. Place the omelette maker into your microwave oven. Set it in the oven open, so that both sides cook equally. Cook the egg on high for 1 minute 30 seconds.

Pull the omelette maker out of the oven. Sprinkle omelette filling over the egg in each half of the omelette maker. Place an equal amount of filling in each half of the omelette. Place the omelette maker back in the microwave and cook on high for another minute.

Close the lid on the omelette maker until you hear a click. This indicates the lid is closed completely. Your omelette halves are now on top of each other in the omelette maker. Cook the omelette in the closed omelette maker for another 30 seconds. Remove the omelette from the maker and serve.


Chop all ingredients the same size so they cook evenly. Grate your cheese, instead of chopping it, to help it melt better.
