Method 1 I learned from my French-Canadian relatives was to put the beaten eggs in a pan and watch. As soon as the eggs start to set you lift the edges up (with something like the spatula) and tip the pan so the uncooked eggs run underneath and set. But you don't need the fork thingy at all to make this North American version of the omelette.
Method 2 is the French chef method people learned from reading Julia Child. You put the raw eggs in the pan and shake the pan while you stir them with the back of a metal fork. This distribute the heat so you don't have eggs that are like rubber on the bottom and uncooked on top. Well it turns out using the fork thingy from this set works great for that, because unless you're a professional juggler you're going to damage the surface of your non-stick pan. You don't strictly need the spatula thingy if you're making a folded omelette in a non-stick pan, because the omelette should slide out of the pan like it was on ice. The spatula is useful if you want to make a French style rolled omelette, but even then it's not really necessary. With practice you can roll the omelette in the pan with a few flicks of your wrist.
Of the two items I'd say the fork is the most useful. It's great when you need to whisk eggs while they are in the non-stick pan, either for cooking an omelette or making scrambled eggs. I occasionally use the spatula when I'm making crepes, but in truth with a good pan (stainless, iron or non-stick) you don't really need it. You can make do with a regular nylon turner, or for delicate things like crepes a rubber spatula (what we call in our family a "baby cheater").
Still, $14 is probably a good value given the use you'll get out of the whisking fork.
Yes, to both questions. The weird fork DOES do an outstanding job of combining egg yolks and whites for a perfect mixture to scramble or make into an omelette. The spatula does an adequate job--and maybe I'll get more proficient in using it with time--but, right now it seems a bit awkward. (I think it's the bend in the blade.) However, they both go into the dishwasher to come out perfectly clean. This was a "spur-of-the-moment" purchase that turned out to be much better than I was expecting. Thanks Calphalon your design efforts paid off.
I didn't think the spatula would be very useful when I bought this, but I was wrong. The slight curve in the spatula lets me cook omelets in a pan that I could not use before since it's not quite nonstick enough to release the egg without a tool, and no tool I had accommodated the curve of the pan without tearing the omelet..
The curved spatula is fantastic for more than flipping omelettes. It deftly circles the outer edge of a pan and folds food at the edges back into the center.
