Why has my omelet pan stopped working? What do I do?

I've been using the lid part of a Le Creuset marmitout
to cook awesome 2- and 3-egg omelets for years (the inside of the lid is cast iron in the old style, not enamel like the picture). It pretty much worked like a well seasoned nonstick pan.
Then I moved to a house with an electric stove instead of a gas one--haven't used one of those in years. Now scrambled eggs and omelets that used to come out perfect stick on the bottom before the top is done cooking. Moving the eggs quickly to scramble them seems to make it worse. I tried turning down the heat, but it doesn't seem to get hot enough to cook through the volume of egg. It's got to where I'm thinking about cooking my eggs in the wok instead! Has anyone else had a similar problem, and what did you do?
