While a normal frying pan definitely has it's place in every kitchen, we have found that the CrepePro has 4 distinct advantages.
1. Due to the CrepePro's larger size it allows for much larger and therefore more delicious crepes (bigger is better here). There can be a lot guess work when pouring the batter onto a normal frying pan. You never want to pour too little batter (again bigger is better) and with too much batter you the run the risk of having a doughy and uncooked crepe (no thank you!). With the CrepePro and batter spreader you can eliminate this problem all together.
2. Because the CrepePro doesn't have a lip and comes with the ideal sized spatula, it makes it so much easier to flip the crepe to cook both sides. We have found this to be extremely beneficial because often times the crepes cooked on a frying pan tend to tear when being flipped, or even worse, fly out of the pan when we get a little too confident.
3. The batter spreader also helps you to easily distribute the batter across the larger pan. This allows you to evenly cook the crepe as well making it thin enough to be able to fill and fold your crepe without tears or rips. Also, have you ever tried spinning your crepe with the back of a ladle? It's impossible! That's enough of a reason to get the CrepePro!
4. The CrepePro specializes in a lot more than just crepes and can act as a large griddle on the stove or even a pan in the oven.
There is a reason why creperies around the world use a similar design when they make their crepes and it's because it is the most effective and efficient way to make the best-tasting crepes!
