You have the perfect recipe, all the finest ingredients, now you need to choose the best crepe pan to cook your delicious breakfast pancakes or crepes.
As pancakes need an even and quite hot temperature to cook properly choose a crepe pan that has excellent heat distribution and retention. Non-stick surfaces help with flipping and turning and ensures a golden pancake.
Choose a crepe pan made from:
Hard Anodised Aluminium – combines the heat distribution qualities of aluminium with the strength of steel thanks to the anodising process. They are also non-stick, scratch resistant and dishwasher safe.
Stainless steel with copper or aluminium base – as stainless steel has poor heat distribution you will need the copper or aluminium base to produce an effective pancake pan
Cast iron or enamelled cast iron – Cast iron has excellent heat distribution and retention and is a very popular material for crepe/pancake pans. Once seasoned they are non-stick and durable.
Flat bottomed with short side walls, and a long handle for easy manoeuvrability cook the best pancakes.
Saute pans are also good for cooking crepes, come in a variety of sizes are usually part of set. A 25cm pan makes 20cm crepes or pancakes.
