Crepe maker makes the party

The CucinaPro Nonstick Electric Griddle and Crepe Maker is as good an excuse to throw a party as any.

Savory or sweet, everybody will want to gather around. Cooking.com

Individual tastes are a tricky thing, especially when preparing food for a crowd. When eating out at a restaurant, everybody gets to choose exactly what they are craving, but try to host a dinner party and the fun, communal atmosphere of a shared meal can quickly turn from tasty to nightmarish. Planning around this eventuality is of course an option, but sometimes it's just easier to let people serve themselves.

I haven't been to many crepe parties (OK, none), but it seems like it might be a good idea. People can construct their own and cater to their cravings: whether they be for sweet or savory. It worked for pizza parties. In fact, more choices become available with crepes. Instead of being limited to pepperoni, sausage, or mushroom, additional choices like hazelnut spread, eggs, or chocolate can be considered. In short, anything goes. However, unlike pizza dough, creating the actual crepe always requires starting from scratch.

Equipment such as the CucinaPro Nonstick Electric Griddle and Crepe Maker would come in handy for any such event. Guests could gather round the 12-inch diameter nonstick aluminum griddle plate and use the included batter spreader to cook their own traditional French crepes. With five different temperature settings and easy on/off and ready lights, the countertop appliance is sure to appease everybody's taste buds without any complicated hassles. Best of all, during the morning cleanup you can use the griddle to fry up some bacon, eggs, and pancakes.
