Quick SMD question

I am just getting into SMD work for PCB's & I was curious when I am using the electric skillet method for solder reflow does the PCB have to sit on the skillet itself or can it slowly pass over & the heat that is coming up from the skillet still cause the solder to flow like it would sitting on top.

ideas for a crepe maker?

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 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).

Need Advice on homemade Broiler

I'm making a 24"x24" vacuform machine. I have the base built but racking my brain for a cost effective heating source.  Is it possible to take a replacement broiler element for an electric stove and just solder a split extension cord to each side? Or better yet get an adjustable thermostat cord like one that would come with an electric skillet and use that? Is this a safe way to do this? The unit that would hold this, would be steel and wood to help radiant heat down plus keep anything or anyone getting burned. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

What's your favorite piece of cooking hardware?

Just wondering if anybody out there has one, "couldn't live without" piece of cooking hardware. A favorite gadget or tool that you just couldn't live without. Mine is actually my cast iron skillet I got for my 20th birthday along with a copy of Alton Brown's "I'm Just Here for the Food". I swear I have cooked pretty much every single kind of dish, from breakfast to dessert. I use it at least 5 times a week, and that would probably be a conservative estimate. Anyway, I'd love to hear what kitchen treasures anybody has out there.
