We offer both gas operated and electric versions so that you have all of the options you need. Each has its benefits, so it comes down to a matter of personal preference and the needs of your kitchen. Electric crepe makers may be more energy efficient in the long run, plus they can simply be unplugged for portability. Gas units, on the other hand, require a natural gas line or liquid propane source, so they may not be as portable. At the same time, gas equipment tends to heat up faster, which can increase the productivity and profitability of your kitchen.
Depending on the volume of crepes that you plan to produce and how much space you have, it’s important to keep in mind whether a single or dual version will work best for your application. If you plan to produce a high volume of crepes and have enough continuous counter space, a double version may be just what you need. If you are only looking to test out crepes on your menu or serve a limited selection, a single unit will do the job. Plus, a single unit saves counter space in a crowded kitchen.
Though most commercial crepe makers come with cast iron griddle plates, some crepe makers have non-stick griddle plates. These reduce the need for seasoning but still allow you to easily turn and remove crepes. For high-volume commercial applications, however, a cast iron griddle plate will better stand up to abuse and can last much longer, saving you time and expense in the long run.
