How to choose crepe and pancake pans
• Traditionally, pancake pans were made out of cast iron. With a thick bottom that easily retains heat for a long time, these help cook through your crepes or pancakes with ease. Cast iron also becomes increasingly non-stick over time.
• Another option is to look for a stainless steel pan, particularly with an aluminum or copper base. The copper or aluminum element helps retain and distribute heat.
• Finally, you can opt for a hard anodised aluminum pan. This blends the strength and durability of steel with the heat distribution capabilities of aluminum, and these pans are dishwasher safe for an easy clean-up.
• You can use sauté pans for making your pancakes, but specifically designed crepe pans tend to have short walls and a flat bottom for the best results.
