The Billig de Krampouz is THE Breton crepe maker par excellence. With pancakes that can reach 48 cm in diameter and a machined cast iron plate, it has all the expertise of a professional device.
Made in France and imagined by the (Breton, obviously) inventor of crepe makers, the Billig is the emblem of Krampouz. Equipped with a machined cast iron plate with integrated resistance, it provides very good cooking performance combining stability and even heating. Cast iron is also one of the strongest materials available and promises almost unrivaled longevity for this device. On the other hand, the plate requires special maintenance. Billig is therefore aimed more at semi-professionals or pancake lovers who will stop at nothing. Yes, if the crepe maker does a lot, a perfect helping hand is essential to make crepes worthy of Breizh.

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
For its Lono crepe maker, WMF has taken care of appearances without neglecting performance. The rise in temperature could certainly have been more uniform, but the heat ends up diffusing into the plate quite quickly and remains there very well. The presence of a rim also prevents you from wasting too much dough on the work surface while you learn how to turn a nice crepe, but we still prefer smooth plates, especially since, at WMF, the edge encroaches a little too much on the cooking surface.
