    I never knew there was a French omelette style... I've made mine like this since 8th grade home economics! I do tend to grate in a small amount of nice, dry, mildly salty cheese before the rolling/folding.

    The secret to a French omelette is motion; lots of motion when whisking and lots of motion when the eggs hit the pan.

    that's neither classic french style nor country french style omelette. You are getting rusty or there wasn't much to begin with- your technique sucked for chef level

    I tried making this for the first time: my stove thinks that it's medium low is your medium high, so I was kinda rushed in going through the steps.
    Still turned out pretty well, tomorrow I'll turn down the heat

    I've heard that you should salt eggs when they are cooked but a lot of chefs salt their eggs before what is it about that?

    I thought that french omelette is one made over a steam bath (kind of a part of Benedict sauce but an omelette). Oh nevermind - it's scrambled eggs french way. But it really almost the same thing.

    Is that the di Oro Living silicone spatula? I've been wanting one since I saw it on America's test kitchen, but don't have a good enough reason to buy it.

    Never salt the eggs before cooking. Stopped watching after that. Gordon Ramsay would not approve.

    I like to pile up eggs to have a nice pillow which then I turn on another side just for a moment. In the end, i have super soft aired scrambled egg pillow with a bit of salt and fresh grounded black pepper on top (plus toasts ofc.) :D

    The comments made me think he used a whole stick of butter or something. It's not that much butter people, you will survive if you eat it.

    Shouldn't you not add salt to eggs right away? I've heard that it starts some kind of chemical reaction that breaks down the eggs and gives them a slimy texture.
