The best griddle- grooves give texture to Indian crepes(dosas)
on September 26, 2007
I am an avid Indian cooking enthusiast. I make Indian crepes regularly and use this griddle pretty often. Over the past six years I have tried both non-stick(expensive ones such as analon and calphalon) and cast iron griddles to make these crepes, but have found issues with both types of griddles. The non-stick wears out pretty fast(because for Indian crepes and bread,you need to use high heat which wears out the griddle when used regularly) and cast-iron requires too much oil. Additionally I am unhappy with the texture of pancakes(both indian and western) in the non-stick pans.
This Circulon griddle gives me the best of both types of griddles and requires no (or very little) oil and I am able to make paper-thin crepes in them with much ease. This to me is quite amazing;I think the even heating provided by the non-stick smooth base helps prolong the life of this pan(I need to use considerably lesser amount of oil and heat to make these crepes compared to other griddles).
In addition I was initially skeptical of the grooves on the griddle in my opinion the grooves make this non-stick griddle work better than any I have used. I highly recommend this product.
