Bought this to make egg crepes...It works extremely well.
And don't worry about those first 2 or 3 crepes that just don't turn out. The ones after those will turn out beautifully.
You don't need a crepe spreader with this either. A crepe spatula is nice to have but not neccessary.
Also, fried eggs are a dream in this thing.
Remember to read the packaging instructions on how to season it prior to using. Season it with some potato peelings, then clean with hot water and no soap. The result is one of the best non-sticks ever! If you would like more instructions on the season go to YouTube or deBuyer's website and they have instructions/tutorials there
Talk about value for money-- no wonder French chefs not only designed this pan but use it. Make sure you 'season' the pan with oil per the instructions. It indeed makes fabulous crepes and omelettes (buy Sur la Table's wooden crepe turner, so that you don't tear the edges while turning). It also sautes beautifully just about anything by evenly browning or caramelizing food to perfection. It's my favourite gift for others now
Everyone should own this crepe pan. I am going to buy the largest of the three. So easy to clean and it looks so wonderful hanging from a hook in my kitchen that everyone can see. I love to fry eggs and makes crepes in it. Love, love, love it
This brought back memories of making cr�pes with my mom. The feel of the pan and flipping the cr�pes so easily bc they did not stick to the pan, made a fun day for my daughters and myself. This pan washes easily too. It is a good tool to have in the kitchen
My husband lived in France for a few years and has the best crepe recipe. But to make good crepes, you need a good pan. Can't wait to try this pan out and see how it compares to the one we're replacing it with!
my wife and children love making crepes fro breakfast. They generally use a skillet which works well enough but at about 10 bucks I thought a specialty pan could make those crepe making sessions even more fun
the blue coating was removed when we sauteed potatoes
I received two for Christmas and I love them. When saut�ing potatoes, the coating peeled off. Is this normal? Please advise how to treat the pan.Thanks
A shopper on Dec 29, 2013
Best Answer:This is completely normal. In fact, the seasoning method--listed below--suggests that you boil potato peels in wather prior to your first use.Place potato peelings in the pan with 1 cup of water, and bring to a boil for 15 min. Drain, then rinse the pan. Cover the pan bottom with a coating of frying oil and dry it for a few minutes. Discard oil and wipe the pan with a paper towel
Do the dimensions listed for these pans (8"", 8-1/2"", 9-1/2"") refer to the top of the pan or the bottom? If it's the top measurement (which I suspect) can you provide the bottom dimensions for each

The measurements listed do represent the top diameter of these pans. The bottom diameters are as follows:
For the 8" pan the bottom diameter is 6 1/2" For the 8 3/4" pan the bottom diameter is 7 1/2" For the 9.5" pan the bottom diameter is 8"
For traditional crepes, which size is recommended?
A shopper on May 20, 2015
Best Answer:i think i would use my 8.75 inch...it depends on your burner size and personal preference . i like smaller crepes for most every application. so far i have made "german pancakes"/just crepes dusted with 10x sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice...my kind of breakfast with coffee.
Best Answer:There are several varieties of cookware that require seasoning, cast iron & carbon steel are a couple examples. By seasoning these pans, they become naturally nonstick over time. Without seasoning them, they are more likely to rust.
I have had 2 blue steel De Buyer saute pans for many years. They have been down to bare steel almost from the beginning. I want to buy one for my son but wonder if I didn't care for them correctly..or if they are not safe to use without the original finish?I always oil them after washing. I love them as they are...
A shopper on Oct 27, 2014
Best Answer:It's fine to use, but it'll work better if it's seasoned properly. Keep in mind that it should never be washed with soap of any kind. It should only be cleaned using very hot water & a paper towel & it should be oiled regularly.
