Reheating in Microwave

  • Get a piece of paper towel, wrap your omelet in it, and place it in a microwavable dish. Heat it in your microwave for about one to two minutes.
  • The reheating time depends on whether you stored your omelet in your fridge or freezer. It is best to flip your omelet when you reach half of the set time.
  • Test if the omelet is heated through. If it isn’t, heat it for another 30 seconds. You should know that a short heating time and low heat are the keys to a delicious, reheated omelet.

Reheating in the Oven

  • Preheat your oven to about 350°F. Put your perfect omelet in a baking tray.
  • Cover it with an aluminum foil and bake it until it is warmed through, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  • You can flip your omelet halfway through to heat it evenly.

Reheating in the Stovetop

  • Get your skillet. Put a bit of oil or butter in it. The added fat can add more moisture to your omelet.
  • Warm your omelet in here for about a couple of minutes on each of the two sides.


1.) I highly recommend reheating your omelet in your microwave. It’s quick, easy, simple, and you’re sure to have a great tasting omelet. You won’t need to be concerned about losing all that flavor and texture.
2.) The moment you look at the small points, your cooked omelet will keep and warm up properly. You will be in awe at the results.
