Crepe Makers

Skip to footer

Crepe makers are kitchen appliances designed to make crêpes — a type of skinny pancake. They are designed to distribute heat to prevent burning evenly, and most models have a nonstick surface for easy cleanup. Crepe makers usually have a small reservoir for the batter, a heating element, and a scraper for lifting and turning the crêpes. The batter is poured into the reservoir, and the crepe maker does the rest. Once the batter is cooked, the crepe maker has a lift that allows the removal of the crêpes and make new ones with a new batter. Crepe makers are usually made from stainless steel, aluminum, or cast iron. They come in various shapes and sizes, depending on their intended use. The most popular design is a disc that comes in different sizes and is designed to fit over the top of a standard 10-inch or 12-inch cast iron skillet. Other designs include a long, flat piece that sits across the top of a pan or a disc that fits inside the pan.
