Yes, you can make delicious, lacey, delicate crepes and blintzes at home. This cast aluminum crepe pan makes it very much within the scope of the average home cook. Not only is making them easy, this pan's inverted design makes the process super speedy too. In fact, you need only cook the crepe on one side so there's no tricky flipping involved. You'll soon find crepes to be your answer to any meal, especially one that needs to be on the table fast. Sweet or savory, rolled, folded or stacked, crepes are incredibly versatile.
This upside-down pan cooks crepes and blintzes quicker and easier than a traditional skillet. Its convex cooking surface looks like the pan's bottom, but it's actually the top. Dipping the pan into crepe batter coats it uniformly. Inverting the pan over a gas or electric burner quickly cooks a paper-thin crepe, and the pan's nonstick surface releases the crepe easily. (Recipes and instructions are included.) Made of heavy cast aluminum, the pan heats evenly and holds heat exceptionally well so there's no down time between crepes waiting for the pan to reheat. The pan's handle is made of hardwood to stay cool crepe after crepe. The pan carries a 20-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack
