A Kitchen Necessity: Crepe Maker

crepe maker

What a bargain: a crepe maker for $19.00.

I was in a forced situation of having to go to the shopping centres today, for a work related matter, but allowed myself some time to browse as well. Christmas shopping crowds, summer heat and humidity and lack of parking normally keeps me well away from any shopping other than for groceries at this time of the year.

I have spoken before about our Crepe Maker (Breville) which has become an essential part of our gluten free kitchen.  We use it to make flat breads, wraps, crepes, galettes, pancakes, pikelets, omelette wraps.  The main advantage of this product over a skillet or fry pan on a hotplate is that I can obtain a more consistent control over the cooking heat.  Practically, flipping pancakes is much easier on a flat surface than in a frypan with curved sides.  I am indeed a very practical person.

The $19.00 price tag on this Crepe Maker on the shelves at KMart makes this a perfect stocking filler or gift.
