Top 5 Best Crepe Makers – Sweet or savoury, it’s up to you

Your visit to Paris is never complete without a stall served Crêpe or a visit to the Crêperie. But, you don’t have to go that far to enjoy traditionally prepared Crêpe.

Fresh from writing our article on the Best Waffle Makers & Recipes we were inspired yet again to write about yet another type of snack or pancake. This time, instead of Belgium, it hails from France.

Crepe Meister

I remember my time at the Summer Fayre and how excited we were waiting for our giant Crepes served with the sweet of our choice and topped with icing sugar.

My second favourite place to enjoy Crepes is actually at a local departmental store, John Lewis. They serve sweet and savoury crepes at their restaurant and it was here that I had my first taste of the savoury kind with cheese oozing out, chopped vegetable and ham. Heaven!

The Best Crepe Recipes from the Web

Trawling the web, we found the following recipes famous among netizens.


The Crepe Meister

Now you too can have all this right at home with your very own Crepe Maker. Some might argue the need for one since if you have a non-stick frying pan big and flat enough, you can make your own Crepes without spending any more money. And, we do agree, that there is really no need for another appliance.

But, for the real enthusiast looking to make crepes with all the right tools; the iconic ‘T-stick’ for spreading the batter, the ladle that measures just the right portion of batter, the oil brush and wooden spatula to flip the crepes and all the ‘theater’ that goes into producing crepe just the way you like it then there is no proper way than to do it other than with one of these.
