I've received many requests on how to use the Sunbeam's M'sieur Crepe Electric Crepemaker. Here are the same instructions that my father gave me many years ago. I still follow them today.

  1. Wipe the domed part of the crepe maker with oil. Wipe off any excess.
  2. Set the machine to low.
  3. Place the pan on unit.
  4. Preheat it for 4 minutes. (Dad used a stop watch; he was very precise.)
  5. Dip the inverted pan into the batter about 1/4 inch. (I make my batter in a blender, let it sit for an hour, hand stir slightly, pour it into a 9-inch glass pie plate.)
  1. Hold the pan in the batter for about 3 to 4 seconds.
  2. Bake for 1 to 1/2 minutes.*
  3. Invert crepe onto plate.
  4. Put the pan back on the burner for a couple of seconds (to reheat pan), and then dip back into the batter.
  5. Got holes in your crepe? While crepe is baking, I'm usually standing by with a spoon to quickly put a little batter over the hole. If you're serving your crepes wrapped around something, no one will notice the patches.
