Gadget Love: Microwave Omelet Pot

Sure it's super simple, and quick to make an omelet on the stove, but this handy ceramic pot is perfect for the dorm room, or for kids that aren't quite ready for the stove version.  I bought it to use during chemo (when my egg consumption became life sustaining), when I wasn't quite up to using the stove. You can even pre-mix your ingredients right in the pot and stick it in the refrigerator until you're ready to microwave.

I like it because it's ceramic; I just don't think it's a good idea to microwave anything in plastic. Pros of the ceramic is that is dishwasher safe, cons are it gets hot quickly in the microwave, and oven mitts or potholders will be needed to remove it.

To make a quick omelet, rub the inside of the pot with a bit of butter, add chopped veggies, herbs, or other cooked ingredients, add one or two eggs (or whites only), season, whisk with a fork, cover, and microwave 1-2 minutes.  Carefully remove from the oven using potholders or mitts, and either eat it straight from the pot, or pop the omelet out onto a plate.
