A crêpe pan is a pan for cooking crêpes. Crêpes are the French version of very thin pancakes, although most cuisines have some version of this food. The pan often has shallow, sloping sides and may be coated with a nonstick finish so that the pancake can be easily flipped and removed from the pan. This skillet is the easiest way to cook crêpes.

An innovative variety of crepe pan has also hit the market: the upside-down crepe pan. This variety looks a lot like a regular skillet, except what some would call the bottom is actually the top. The pan is dipped into a shallow pan and then placed on the stove. It helps make a very thin pancake, which cooks in less than a minute, meaning you can cook more pancakes in a shorter time.

An electric crepe pan also does a good job with this dish. This type of pan has a ready light indicator that lets the cook know when the pan is hot enough and also when the crepe is done. One version looks a lot like an overturned frying pan.

Crêpes are a versatile food that can be used as a sweet or savory dish, depending on the fillings. Some eat them for breakfast, sprinkled with sugar or slathered with jam, while others stuff them with chicken and serve a cream sauce for an elegant main course. Crepe recipes are available online and in most cookbooks.

A standard crepe pan will cost about the same price as any other similarly sized pan. An upside down pan will typically be more expensive, and an electric pan will often be quite expensive, depending on the manufacturer. They are available almost everywhere kitchen items are sold or online.

Crepes are versatile and not difficult to make. Any moderately experienced cook should be able to deal with them successfully.
