A crepe maker comes in three variations: a stovetop, gas and electric crepe maker. They have different sizes and made of different materials which determine the outcome of the crepes. Depending on the type, they also make pancakes, tortillas and eggs. A stovetop crepe maker is like a pan, but it explicitly is made for traditional crepe recipes allowing them to gain a favourable brown colour. They can completely be dipped in water, making them easy to clean. Gas crepe makers are strong, safe and reliable and offer precision cooking. Most have a stainless steel casing and have an adjustable thermostat dial. An electric crepe maker is an appliance designed to be on a countertop and precisely made for crepes. Some models are however suitable to prepare other meals like pancakes, blinis and eggs. They do not require a lot of knowledge to operate them, and they allow one to make crepes quickly. It is, therefore, fitting for making crepes for a large number of people promptly. A professional crepe maker has conventional working mechanisms, but it offers higher performance. They are suitable for commercial use as they have larger diameters, and some professional crepe makers have double plates with autonomous controls. Using crepe makers is quite easy. You let it get warm, grease it lightly then gently spread the crepe batter on it. The waiting time is approximately one minute.
