This is the pan for those who’ve caught on that neither their world, nor their pancakes, has to be flat. It’s an aebleskiver pan, and it’s a must-have kitchen tool when the craving arises for those little sphere-shaped Danish pancakes. The pans are generally round and often made from heavy cast iron, though other versions are made from lighter metals, such as aluminum, and covered with a nonstick coating. Each pan contains several half-spherical indentations (one for each aebleskiver) for making those perfectly round pancakes.
Aebleskiver pans are generally available at cooking stores as well as online. Prices vary depending on the material, but they typically range from $20 to $40.
