Top Customer Reviews
Additonal comment after first review. I could not return it so I contact the company in Cleveland OH. I told them the story. Surprisingly they said they could send me a new one if I mailed them the receipt and the wire top cut from the crepe. I did it. One week later I got the new crepe maker! Very impressed with the honesty of the business.
1. The Spreader Tool - yes, they use these at all the crepe stands we went to up and down southern France. We use ours. The trick is to let it float, let it twirl in your fingers, with a flexible wrist, as you make the circle to spread the batter. (Sounds like a bigger deal than it is, but it helps.)
2. Heat - Keep it just under the 2 setting, at least at first. So far I keep it at 2.
3. Butter - Use a paper towel to spread a bit of butter before making EACH crepe. It works and tastes much better than the spray, Too much and the crepes will float and not spread well. That's why the paper towel.
4. "Brown Butter" (See recipe book comments below) - Don't bother with it, as putting the butter on the griddle, will give it a bit of browning flavor without the fuss and over-the-top taste.
5. Batter - Many suggest keeping the batter in the fridge overnight before making the crepes. In her cook book, Martha Holmberg explains that this allows the flour to fully hydrate. It's one of those "kitchen science" things, and I agree it makes a difference. I DO use a blender as Holmberg suggests, and this works well, though I believe letting the batter then "rest" in the fridge, is essential.
6. Crepe Book - We bought the Martha Holmberg book called "Crepes - 50 Savory and Sweet Recipes." Important: Read all of Martha's commentary (her commentary is relaxed and useful), including that with the batter section. Don't just dive into the ingredients list. We have made her "Versatile Crepe" and her "Buckwheat Crepe." I add a few tablespoons of sugar to the Versatile crepe, and (very important to me) some vanilla extract, when making this crepe for fruit, preserves, or even eating plain. This is the taste we had at the "sweet" Crepe stands in France.
7. Buckwheat (works well for savory fillings) - As you'll see in Martha's book, buckwheat is not wheat at all, so it does not have a grainy or gritty texture - plus, it is mixed with some regular flower. It was the perfect match for the ham and cheese (we used her optional suggestion of Smoked Gouda) crepes. Don't shy away from the walnuts, capers and "topping." (I know there is a better culinary term, but you get the idea). The capers, walnuts and topping, really "made" the crepes. I substituted sour cream for creme fraiche, and stayed with the Dijon mustard. I also added a bit more sour cream than called for (to taste), so the mustard did not take over. I was happy with this. For the topping, you'll multiply the measures listed, by the number of crepes you are making.
8. Guests and Warming - Because we were making crepes for guests, I made the almost all the crepes in advance. I say almost, because I saved enough to demonstrate one, and let our friends each make one. It was fun. Then I put the filling inside, and warmed the crepes in the oven. I put the "topping" on the table, and let people try to taste - everybody liked it.
Calories - Think about this: Each crepe, which is quite large, uses only 1/3 cup batter, and 50% of that is milk and eggs. (I do use whole milk). Each guest ate two crepes - one sweet and one savory, with filling, and we were stuffed!
Good luck, enjoy!
1. I'd like a little more leeway with the temperature control. At a setting of 1.5 (one and a half) the surface gets more than hot enough to cook a crepe, and quickly at that. It has a range of up to 5 but I fear anything over a 3 would give Mrs. O'Leary's cow a run for her money.
2. The crepe tool the sent along with the unit is far too big for a 12 inch surface. Not a terribly big deal, I'm just going to saw about 3/4 of an inch off each side, as it's made of wood. This would be a problem however, for someone living in a condo in downtown Chicago, who didn't have a hand saw. Well, maybe not in Chicago because you could just hold it out a window and wait for the ends to be shot off, but you get the drift. The tool is usable, just too big which makes it awkward to manipulate properly.
I do like the fact that the surface heats evenly and it's level. The slightest bit of "unlevelness" (new word) would cause my very thin crepe batter to go charging off to the low side. Tip: If your countertop is not perfectly level you may have to put a little something under the unit to level it off, particularly if you use a thin batter.
Overall, I'm satisfied and give you the thumbs up to make your purchase with confidence. Go on now, don't be shy, click that add to cart button. You'll thank me.
UPDATE: This morning, I sawed off about one half inch on both sides of the crepe tool and that did the trick. It's the perfect size for this unit now. I had a blast making crepes. Family had a blast eating them. My recipe calls for half a cup of brandy in the batter. Shhh, nobody knows. It's no wonder everyone is so happy after breakfast!
Other points to note:
1. The only way to clean it is to use a cloth and wipe the surface clean.
2. The included spreader is very good. Maybe a bit too big for it, but it works great.
3. You don't need to buy a wooden spatula or anything like that. A regular plastic spatula works great. The crepes don't stick to the surface even without spray or butter.
4. The edge of the surface is elevated. This is not like traditional, larger crepe makers which are totally flat allowing for the crepe to be handled by a straight spatula. This isn't a downside though because it can keep the batter from dripping down the side.
Overall this is an amazing crepe maker for the money. You won't be disappointed.
