The short answer is, you definitely can use a normal frying pan and you can probably make decent enough crepes with some practice.
But imagine going to a French creperie and seeing the chef swirling his crepe batter in a small, normal, frying pan. What would you think? Would you feel ripped off?
You might even think “well, I can do that at home just fine. Why are we paying $13 for this?”
Compare that to the feeling you get when you see the chef take his batter spreader on his 16” pan and evenly spin a beautiful, golden crepe before he loads it with Nutella, strawberries, and bananas.
There is a reason why creperies in France use these “CrepePro” styled pans. It’s because they are simply more effective for crepes not to mention easier to use and master!
The CrepePro’s size and batter spreader make it so easy to spread and cook the crepes that even your kids can and WILL WANT to do it! Plus you won’t end up with anymore of those raw, gooey crepes!
The spatula and flat design make flipping your crepes a breeze! This will help you to avoid those awful moments when your hard work is ruined by a crepe that refuses to budge and tears instead.
And above all it is an experience! Cooking on the CrepePro is a lot more fun not just for you but for the whole family! We have to cook anyway so we might as well enjoy it right? You will be less frustrated and have more memorable family moments using the CrepePro!
