What is a crepe pan?
A crepe pan is specially designed for preparing delicious, ultra-thin crepes. It is characterized by its flat shape and low rim, making it easy to flip and serve them. A crepe pan can be used to make pancakes. The non-stick coating ensures that the pancakes don't stick and are cooked evenly. A pancake pan is a real kitchen essential thanks to the following 5 benefits:
Flat, wide surface and low rim: pancake pans have a flat, wide surface that allows the pancake batter to be evenly distributed and spread out finely. The low rim of the pancake pan makes it easy to flip the pancakes with a spatula and serve them without them sticking or tearing.
Non-stick coating: most crepe pans have a non-stick coating that ensures the crepe or pancake batter does not stick to the pan. This not only makes it easier to flip the pancakes, but also to clean the pan after use.
Good heat distribution: a pancake pan is designed to distribute the heat evenly. This means that pancakes can be cooked evenly on all sides, for optimum texture and taste.
A wide range of different properties: At Cookinglife, you'll find pancake pans that are suitable for different heat sources, dishwasher and/or oven safe. If you look at the product description of the pancake pan, you'll see all the specifications and be able to choose a pancake pan to suit your kitchen.
Expert advice: for the best pancakes, make sure your frying pan is properly heated. Even if “the first one is always a dud”, it's not a general rule! You can even prove it. Because of our impatience to eat these delicacies, we often start making the pancakes or crepes when the pan is still too cold and, as a result, the first pancake is a dud.
