About Gotham Steel Over EZ Omelette Pan
Delicious, fluffy omelettes filled with your favorite toppings... yum! If you weren’t hungry already, you’re probably working your way there. But the problem is that they’re difficult to make and can leave you with a burnt, sticky mess.
Gotham Steel Over EZ Omelette Pan is a non-stick slip pan that combines non-stick ceramic with super-strong titanium, claiming to make this process as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Pour eggs in both sides and beat them. Over EZ Pan’s Ti-Cerama coating won’t scratch, even when used with metal utensils, and it’s PTFE/PFOA/PFOS free.
- Add your favorite toppings to one side.
- Flip for the “perfect, light, fluffy” omelette. Everything slides right off, without the need for butter or oil.
The company claims you can even put your Over EZ Omelette Pan in the oven (up to 500°), making it ideal for hash browns, stovetop pizza, french toast with fruit sauce, and more. And when you’re done, Over EZ’s dishwasher safe construction makes for easy cleanup.
Once the egg meets the pan, can you expect Gotham Steel’s Over EZ Omelette Pan to work as advertised? Will you finally be free from all the scratching and scraping? Will you really be able to “make restaurant quality omelettes”?
By the time you finish reading this review, you’ll have answers to all your important questions.
What Is EZ Omelette Pan’s Ti-Cerama Technology?
EX Omelette Pan’s manufacturer doesn’t give us any details about its Ti-Cerama technology, or what makes it any different than other ceramic non-stick cookware.
In general though, ceramic cookware is a relatively recent invention, as kiln-hardened ceramics tend to have poor heat conduction qualities (think of that coffee mug you made in art class during junior high). As such, they traditionally haven’t used in the kitchen.
Instead, PTFE/PFOA/PFOS (all long, complicated names referencing the trademarked chemical Teflon) coatings have typically been used to provide non-stick surfaces. Although Teflon is largely considered a tough material, if exposed to repeated abrasions over the course of months of years, some of it can flake off and make their way into food.
Repeated exposure to these chemicals has been shown to lead to all kinds of nasty health effects in animals, such as increased risk of cancer, decreased immune response in some instances, reduction in birth size, and more.
To get around both of these problems, recent cookware features powdered ceramic and/or titanium, which is hardened to a metal surface that’s conducts heat better than either of these materials (usually aluminum). Again, there’s no way to know if this is exactly what’s in Over EZ, but it’s probably a safe bet.
How Does the Gotham Steel Omelette Stack Up?
Considering the increased safety over traditional non-stick pans, it’s easy to see why ceramic cookware has become so popular over the last few years.
Because of this, typing “ceramic cookware” into your favorite search engine will reveal many different options available in all shapes, sizes, colors, and intended uses. We’ve even reviewed a couple of these, like Red Copper Pan and Slip Stone Pan.
What about omelette pans, specifically? Again, turning to the Internet, try typing “non-stick omelette flip pan” into any search engine. You’ll see that you have dozens of other options (many of which also feature ceramic coatings), although none are designed exactly like Over EZ.
Probably the biggest price between these other options—some of which are priced as high as $150!—and Over EZ Omelette Pan is price, which is what we’ll look at next.
How Much Does Over EZ Omelette Pan Cost?
One Omelette Pan will cost you $19.95, plus free S&H. You can purchase a second at checkout for an additional $6.95 S&H.
Each order will include free poaching and mini slider attachments.
Unlike most other ASOTV products we’ve reviewed, Gotham Steel Over EZ Omelette Pan comes with a 90-day refund policy, although you won’t get your S&H charges back. To request one, call customer service at 800-590-3492.
What’re Customers Saying About the Gotham Steel Product Line?
There weren’t any online customer reviews for the Over EZ Omelette Pan at the time of our research (it was too new of a product), but the good news is that we’ve reviewed a couple other pieces of cookware in the Gotham Steel lineup, including Gotham Steel Pans, Knives, and Double Grill. In fact, we even performed an in-depth video review of Gotham Steel Pans, so be sure to check it out for the full scoop.
Among nearly 70 customer reviews here on HighYa, these products had an average rating of 2 stars, with by far the most common complaint citing that the non-stick surface either didn’t work from the get-go, or only lasted a handful of uses. At best, many customers claim the performance is “average” at best, or the “worst pan I’ve ever used” at worst.
Granted, these complaints are for a completely different product. But considering that Over EZ Pan comes from the same manufacturer and implements the same Ti-Cerama cooking surface, we think it should be at the top of your mind.
Are Over EZ Pan Customers Finding Themselves in a Sticky Situation?
As a consumer advocacy website, the HighYa team firmly believes that customer reviews speak volumes. While we’d certainly never claim that they tell the whole story, if enough customers are consistently saying the same thing, it’s been our experience that there’s usually something to them.
Combined with the fact that there are dozens of other non-stick omelette pans out there, we think Over EZ’s biggest advantage is its price. Will this provide you with a greater value, though? Will it last longer or perform as well as the competition? These remain to be seen.
But if you still feel like rolling the dice on Gotham Steel’s Over EZ Omelette Pan, you can always take comfort in the fact that the company offers a 90-day refund policy. Keep in mind, though, that you’ll immediately lose the $6.95 in S&H if you purchased the BOGO offer, and you’ll also have to pay to ship everything back to the company.
