I've tried to cook an egg with some oil underneath on low fire, trying to make an omelette, but the egg still got stuck and when I turned it over a plate it collapsed apart. It was just some egg and hard cheese bits. Anyone know what went wrong?

Maybe it's because the small pot was not nonstick. I thought it would turn out ok anyways.

    If this is your first time making eggs on non-nonstick, then it is expected. I think we even have a question which says "I followed all advice and it still stuck, why" - basically, you need to train doing it right. – rumtscho Sep 12 '19 at 11:54

    I always buy cheap teflon for my egg cooking. A little butter and it works every time. Stainless can be very unforgiving to delicate soft things like eggs. – Wayfaring Stranger Sep 12 '19 at 23:48

I would recommend using a pan for an omelette not a pot, as it makes it easier to get a spatula under the omelette. Also, if you are not using a nonstick surface, use a little more oil (or preferably butter) and get the oil hot in the pan before putting in the eggs (medium high heat).
