I coulda sworn that when I spent my days for nearly a year making hundreds of crepes a day, with stress placed on consistency and neatness, using no special equipment but the pan and a one-ounce ladle, that that was a commercial setting. But perhaps it's a relative thing, and it may also have to do with the cost to hire "skilled", or at least expensively trained, labor.

But yes, that was just my experience, and I should not have spoken in a manner that sounded empirical.

>> Now that you mention this "where one was instructed to swirl around the batter", I remember that on a recent show Food Truck Challenge or some such, one of the trucks specialized in crepes, and I remember seeing them pour the batter on the griddle and swirl it around with some kind of utensil. Is that a common thing/requirement in making crepes?
