A pan with shallow sloping sides, a flat bottom and a long handle. It's designed for easy movement, turning and removal of an omelet or other egg mixtures. Omelet pans range from 6 to 10 inches in diameter and can be made of aluminum, plain or enameled cast iron or stainless steel. Many of today's omelet pans have nonstick finishes.
