Krampouz : the inventor of the crepe maker
The story begins in 1949 in the heart of Brittany. To meet the request of his family, an electrician undertakes to manufacture a gas crepe maker. Until then, the pancakes were made on a cast iron plate placed in the fireplace. The news spread like a trail of flour and requests pouring in from across Brittany. Thus is born the first gas crepe maker and at the same time the Krampouz brand, which means “pancake” in Breton.
If in 1966, the Krampouz crepe makers embark by ship to New York City, it is really in 1980 that starts the international adventure for Krampouz. The crepe makers will then fly to London, Brussels, Athens and never cease to seduce the worldwide users. Whatever its form or the used flour, the crepe is universal. Okonomiyakis in Japan, tortillas in Mexico, chapatis in India or pancakes in Anglo-Saxon countries: each country has its recipe.
Undisputed world reference of the crepe maker, over the years, Krampouz was able to apply its know-how of the precision cooking to new ranges of appliance, and passing from the statut of “heat adjuster”to the one of “manufacturer of high quality equipments ready to connect”. Since 2006, more than 60 references have been created. Griddle plates, grills, waffle makers and warming equipments now take place with the famous gas and electric crepe makers.
