Update! So I decided to stimulate the economy and buy the $95 crepe pan. I also searched hither and yon for a spreader and a long, thin, flat spatula. After lots of blind alleys I _finally_ found this 15 3/4" spatula:
It was hard to find because it doesn't have "crepe" in the title! But it is listed in the "crepe accessories" section.
I also found this crepe spreader:
Note the picture in that link. I wanted the "-15" part, not the "-24" part. I have one of those other ones with the sharp bottom, and IMHO it's useless, except for scraping the batter off the pan. I wanted to find the round, dowel type, and that's the "-15" part. The price was right, too, at $5/apiece (though they're listing it at a higher price now), so I bought two, in case my kid breaks one.
So, imagine my surprise when my crepe pan shows up, and there's a spreader and a spatula in the box! The spreader is fine, but the spatula is about 8" long, which is silly considering the pan is 12 1/2" in diameter. So I'm glad I bought the longer spatula.
The pan works great! The first crepe stuck a little bit, but once it's broken in the crepes release pretty well. I feel just like a real creperie guy! Well, at least I can fantasize thus!
Heh. Imagine my further surprise when my order of "2" crepe spreaders shows up. The "X5" in the description actually means "package of 5", so the box contained 10 crepe spreaders! So now I have 11. :D
Anyway, if anyone else ends up buying a crepe pan and needs a spreader, you can have one for the price of postage :)
