Re:crepe machine is a good kitchen equipment investment?
You make make really nice crepes in crepe pans. At our B&B I made crepes for 10-20 people, nice and easy.
Now we use 15" propane crepe grills for our mobile food cart/tent setup and 13" electric ones for indoor events.
Par of the fun of crepes is people watching - so if you are putting your grille back in the kitchen out of site, I'd probably go for a crepe pan or a countertop electric.
The Tibco grill (110V) on amazon can be found cheaper other places, around $140 USD, we like them but LOVE our gas grills, which cost a lot more.
Enjoy - crepes are a lot of fun and the creative ideas are endless, and you can easily incorporate local, season ingredients.
