In the meantime, you can follow those 6 steps if you want to cook perfect French crepes: Full recipe with the ingredients available here:
STEP 1 : POUR THE FLOUR AND SUGAR IN A MIXING BOWL AND MAKE A WELL IN THE CENTER.
STEP 2 : ADD EGGS, AND STIR GENTLY ONCE, THEN GRADUALLY POUR THE MILK USING A WHISK. THE EGGS WILL GIVE THE MIXTURE MORE BODY AND LESS OF A CARDBOARD FEEL.
STEP 3 : MELT THE BUTTER, THEN ADD IT TO THE MIXTURE. MIX UNTIL THE CREPE BATTER IS SMOOTH AND HOMOGENEOUS.
STEP 4 : LET SI AT ROOM TEMPERATURE FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES. THIS WILL ALLOW THE FLOUR TO ABSORB THE MILK FOR SOFTER CREPES.
STEP 5 : HEAT THE CRISTEL CREPE PAN TO 2/3 OF MAXIMUM POWER OF YOUR SOURCE OF HEAT, THEN POUR A LADLE OF BATTER AND SPREAD IT EVENLY OVER THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF THE PAN.
STEP 6 : COOK THE CREPE FOR ABOUT 1 MINUTE ON EACH SIDE. REPEAT THIS PROCESS WITH THE REMAINING BATTER.
