What is the best crepe maker?
When investing in a commercial crepe maker, it is important to take certain specifications and features into account. Your unit needs to function as a professional and versatile piece of quality cooking equipment. Let’s explore these specifics further now. You must always ensure your commercial crepe maker is equipped with a thick cast-iron plate, as cast-iron translates into the best thermal inertia. The plate needs to be thick enough (Ø400 mm), to accumulate enough heat to provide an even heat distribution across the entire plate for thin products, such as crepes, pancakes, chapatis, etc. In addition, the cast-iron plate needs to be enameled (which is a very specific feature of Roller Grill production). Thanks to this unique enameling feature, the plate is perfectly smooth, thus guaranteeing effective heat transfer from the element to the food item. The appliance also functions as an energy saving device, since cooking takes place at 200-220°C as opposed to 240°C with a normal machine. The spiral Incoloy heating element is integrated into the cast-iron plate, which maintains 2 counter plates. The heating element guarantees a constant and accurate temperature transfer regulated by thermostat, producing continuous and even temperature transfer upon contact. Precise temperature regulation is essential for a homogenous cooking result; this comes from an accurate thermostat which controls thorough cooking even on thin products such as crepes, chapati, durum wheat-flour products, etc.
What is the best electric crepe maker?
The top electric crepe maker must be fitted out with professional spread technology. A spiral heating element is integrated into the cast-iron plate for perfect even cooking without any heat loss, which means the same temperature transfer on the middle and all edges of the plate. The heating source must also provide enough power (3kW at least), for flawless cooking results. Another added bonus is cutting down on lengthy and tedious food seasoning preparation times, due to the mechanism's special enamel coating, so that all that is required is to lightly grease the machine with oil before operation. After preheating, the appliance can then be used from the very first crepe, (unlike traditional cast-iron plates which need to be greased multiple times on a very hot plate, at least an hour before first use). Simply grease the electric crepe machine between each baking for a lightly-golden and well-done crepe, without any glazing or caramelization effect. Cleaning is a breeze due to the mass enamel material which provides efficient rub resistance. Just simply use a spatula or abrasive stone to remove any cooking residues, without risk of damaging the plate. Deglazing can be done on very dirty surfaces. The best electric commercial crepe machine needs to be characterized by its high power and effective temperature rise and control, despite the plate thickness. The appliance must be designed for industrious and intensive use that lasts the whole day long.

What is the best gas crepe maker?
Here are some points to consider when deciding on purchasing a gas crepe machine. It must display optimal spread technology, as this is essential for a uniform cooking result on the crepe plate. There is a star-shaped burner with 8 branches fixed to the plate for a thorough and balanced cooking result, without any heat loss. One experiences no overcooking or burning, since there is no high-discrepancy temperature, as is the case with other round burners or ramps of burners. It is imperative that the gas crepe machine be secured at all times during ignition and cooking. Piezo lighting ensures safe ignition of the device. There is also a safety thermocouple feature in case of gas leakage, overheating or any malfunction.
