Commercial crepe machines are straight forward and easy to operate. Because the are all relatively similar, one crepe machine is pretty much the same as any other. But you do have the choice of what type of power source to use and other factors like the size of the machine.
As you brush up on crepe machines basics and research your options, keep the following in mind:
1. Find out what power source you have available for a crepe machine.
2. Choose a single- or double-burner commercial crepe machine for small production.
3. Purchase a fully automated commercial crepe maker for high volume crepe production.
Choose gas or electric crepe making machinesGas and electric powered crepe makers are largely the same. Both have the same type of plate and heat adjustments. Many chefs prefer gas crepe makers because their temperature is easily controlled and instantaneous. Gas and electric crepe makers cost about the same, feature for feature.
Decide on a single- or double-burner commercial crepe griddleThe most noticeable difference in most crepe makers is how many burners they have. Single- and double-burner crepe makers offer the chef the ability to use either gas or electric power. Double-burner crepe makers have dual temperature controls, allowing each burner to be set at different temperatures.
Purchase a fully automated industrial crepe machineWhether you serve brunch or delectable desserts, chances are your crepe production is high. Purchasing a fully automated crepe machine will increase production time and save on the cost of paying employees to painstakingly cook crepes on individual burners. The only effort you will put into an automated machine is turning it on and keeping the batter reservoir filled.
- Purchase a double-burner commercial crepe machine when your budget allows. This will save you the expense of purchasing a second machine in the event that you need another crepe maker.
