ideas for a crepe maker? Answered
I've wanted to make a crepe maker for a while but could use some suggestions and advice on materials.
My first thought was "I have a spare cast iron skillet and an alcohol burner, maybe I can flip the skillet over and place it above the alcohol burner and a pan below to catch the drips."
But I'm sure that is riddled with problems...it wouldn't heat evenly and the bottom of a cast iron skillet is pretty bumpy. Even with a lot of butter I think it would still stick. Not to mention the resulting device would be pretty far from elegant.
I thought I'd try to crowd-source this puppy. Any ideas for a funky looking crepe maker? I don't know much about stove coils and I can't say I trust myself fiddling with that much power, so unless somebody knows of a real safe way to handle that I'd prefer a different heating method.
Of course, the cheaper it can be done the better but I'd expect to spend more than the bottom of the line commercial crepe maker (usually run about $50).
