    Hi I have used an electric krampouz various times with no problem, in order to operate outside at events I purchased a double gas krampouz maker & have had nothing but problems. I purchased second hand and the crepe maker itself is it perfect condition but the plates were rusted up very badly I got  the rust of and seasoned it and it sticks still, I have since re-seasoned a few times and still they stick. Is it possible for plates to be perished?  Don't want to buy more costing another £200 and find out its me just being useless can anyone help, has anyone used gas crepe maker are they difficult to use?  It is sooo frustrating I am turning work away any help would be so appreiciated.

    Thanks

    One of the knife wizards may know how to hone (prolly not the tech word lol) the plates to remove the scratches caused by the de-rusting (is that even a word?) as that is surely the problem.

    Hey @MillionsKnives  are you out there?

    Too bad you cannot just cover with parchment paper.

    Are there scratches?  I would have removed rust with steel wool or sand paper either way I don't expect deep scratches.  Start with coarse then go to finer grits.

    On their website they say to season 8 times!

    What fat are you seasoning with?  I like lard.
