Who doesn't love a delicious crepe? They work equally well for breakfast and for dessert and can be beautifully simple with just lemon and sugar, rich and decadent with cream and fruit, or even savoury with cheese-themed fillings. We're taking a look at the best crepe makers out there to help you whip up this versatile treat.
This NutriChef option gives you a 12-inch non-stick aluminium cooking surface for super-smooth crepe making. With 1,200 watts of power it heats up quickly, with an LED indicator letting you know when it's time to start cooking. The temperature is adjustable via a simple rotary dial and this comes complete with two tools — a wooden spatula and batter spreader.
Proctor Silex's crepe maker gives you a generous 13-inch non-stick cooking surface for decent-sized crepes. Usefully, it comes with a batter cup for easy pouring, a spreader for the perfect consistency, and an extra-large spatula for pro-level flipping and folding. There are eight heat levels to choose from, meaning you can get perfect crepes for your preference.
This pan style crepe maker comes with a batter tray with the idea being that you flip and dip the pan in the tray to get a light coating of batter in order to make super-thin crepes. With just an on and off button, making this very simple to use, it has automatic temperature control to prevent burning. It's capable of making 8-inch crepes in very little time, thanks to its 800 watts of power.
We've gone all out with this pick as it's a commercial maker, but a really strong and durable option for families who really like their crepes. With a cast iron cooking surface, it's capable of making super-sized 16-inch crepes. The adjustable thermostat goes up to 570 degrees Fahrenheit, and there are heat-resistant carrying handles to protect your digits.
We've highlighted a variety of models that should meet anyone's crepe-making needs. You need to consider if you'd like a smaller, more compact pan-style maker or one that offers a larger cooking surface. Our overall recommendation is the NutriChef Electric Crepe Maker. It has a quick-cooking 1,200 watts of power and comes in at a price that the average family can afford.
