Why is my omelette burnt and not fluffy?

Getting an omelette right is something of an art, and it can take quite a few to achieve perfection. There are a few things to bear in mind with omelettes that will eliminate the common issue of an omelette that has burnt, or one that is very flat and hasn't risen. 

1. The most common reason for an omelette that has burnt on the outside is too much milk in the mixture. Try using an extra egg and adding just a dash of milk. The omelette mix should still look quite yellow, even with milk in it.

2. The reason why your omelette has flopped is most likely because you've not beaten the eggs enough. You need to do it like you mean it, until the mixture is uniform and a little frothy. Leaving strands of egg unmixed will result in a flat omelette (don't worry, it'll still taste good). 

3. Finally, it's really important to get the temperature right. If in doubt, get your pan to a medium hot temperature on the medium-sized hob on your cooker. Too cold, and your omelette won't hold together. Too hot, and it'll burn on the outside without cooking on the inside. Remember: an omelette is not a pancake, and needs a bit longer to cook through.
