Item details

Vintage waffle pan, Norwegian krumkake waffle iron. Pizzelle press. Crepe cookie maker.
Cast iron Jøtul krumkakejern from Norway. Krumcake pan. Fabulous heart shape floral pattern.

This Norwegian krumcake waffle iron and crepe cookie maker is vintage and second hand, possibly from the 1960's. The pan has a beautiful, heart shaped ornament known as the Østerdal pattern, which is typical in Norwegian krumkake waffle irons. These delicately textured baking plates leave fantastically beautiful pattern to the waffles. Please note that krumkake is a special, thin type of waffle. You can only make thin waffles with this pan.

This pan is made by Jøtul, a well known Norwegian producer of ovens. This waffle maker is solid, sturdy and heavy. The hinge works as it should and the pan is functional. The whole pan is about 40 cm long and weighs 2408 g (2,4 kg). The round baking plates are about 14 cm in diameter. Heating bottom on both sides. The pan can easily be flipped over thanks to a round shape just behind the hinge.
The black handles are most likely bakelite. NB! There is a crack to the both handles, from the inner to the outer side. Please see one of the photos. Despite these cracks, the both handles sit tight and the cracks do not affect the functionality of the pan.

Maintenance: clean with water after use and oil while warm to prevent rust.

Suitable for electric stoves where burners are higher that the top of the stove. Not suitable for gas stoves because fat will flow during waffle making. The handles are slightly bent for easy grip. Please note that there is no base ring to this iron. Base rings are not used in Norway.

Please note the following: I found this pan at a flea market recently. I gently rubbed the pan with steel sponge, heated it lightly and seasoned with sunflower oil to prevent rust while storing. I was unable to remove all the dirt.

There are different meanings on how to clean cast iron pans which have not been properly cared for. I leave it up to the buyer to decide whether more dramatic and thorough cleaning is necessary. Cast iron houseware typically get a certain scent when not used and/or not properly maintained.
