I recently made crepes with a crepe maker like this one. The first half of the recipe worked perfectly. Then, every time I dipped the base into the batter, when I removed it, the half cooked crepe would slide off into the pan of wet batter. Any suggestions?

    If the first half of the recipe worked fine, it sounds like your crepe maker might be losing heat. Does your model have a ready indicator like the one you linked to? Either way, try giving the crepe maker a minute or two to reheat in the middle of your cooking. – Wolfgang Aug 2 '17 at 19:09
  • Yes! the indicator showed that the machine was hot & ready! Next time, I'll let it warm for a while even after the indicator showing that it's reheating is off. Thanks! – kayk Aug 3 '17 at 14:30

    I've made it into an answer, so if that works the next time you make crepes feel free to choose it. – Wolfgang Aug 3 '17 at 14:52

Don't necessarily trust the ready indicator either. An infrared thermometer would help, but you can also drop a few drops of water on the grill. If the water quickly sizzles and evaporates, it should be ready.
