Crepe maker - which is better, electric or pan?

I would like to invest in a good quality crepe pan, but am not sure if an electric model will provide better results than a traditional pan that goes on the stovetop? Any advice would be appreciated.

I didn't know there were electric ones! LOL.  I have a regular crepe pan and they turn out great.

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Adele, I am completely ignorant of crepe pans-- is yours steel?  Did you have to season it?

I think I paid even less that what they have it for now. BUT, I don't make them on any kind of regular basis, so putting out the big bucks for a 'good' pan didn't make sense for me.  (And no, I don't season it- LOL)

...It looks nice.  My husband will be amazed that there is one specialized kitchen gadget that I do not have.

dear heavens. How many crepes (post #70066, reply #6 of 7)

dear heavens. How many crepes can you eat?  I have a Nordic ware not stick one--maybe $15. You dip it in the batter and then put it on the stove to cook. Takes about 3 minutes. Perfect crepes.

I have an electric crepe maker (Multichef brand) bought many years ago.  It was not too expensive but it works great.  Perfectly shaped crepes in minutes.    Josie
