A pan from our early years!

Italian pizzelles are a traditional Italian sugar cookie served flat and plain, dipped in chocolate or sugared or can be rolled into a cone for filling with fruit or ice cream. Three pieces are included in this heirloom set: two-side detailed Krumkake press, cooking base and wooden cone for rolling. Can be used on gas, electric and ceramic stoves. Recipes and wooden rolling cone included.

Use & Care

To prepare iron for use:
Wash iron in warm, soapy water, rinse and dry. Brush inside of plates lightly with butter or vegetable oil. Place assembled iron on stovetop over medium heat about 3-5 minutes. Wipe off excess grease with paper towel; iron is now ready to use. Discard first cookie.

To Clean Iron:
Wash with warm, soapy water. Never use harsh abrasives or steel wool on inside of plates; clean with a stiff vegetable type brush. Should the outside of plates or base become stained from burned on batter or fat after prolonged usage, clean with fine steel wool soap pads or use aluminum metal cleaners, available at hardware or department stores.

To Make:
Spoon 1-2 tsp of batter in center of press surface. Close iron and gently squeeze handles together. Batter flowing out indicates too much batter being used and this surplus should be scraped off immediately before it burns. Bake 5-10 seconds before turning iron over to continue baking. Bake until cookie is light golden brown; open iron to check for doneness. Remove quickly with a spatula and roll immediately on cone (included) to shape. Remove cone and cool seam-side down on wire rack. Roll in sugar or fill with whipped cream if desired. Store in shallow airtight container, stacking carefully 1-2 deep.

Extra Care Notes:

  1. Before initial use and after subsequent uses, hand wash with warm, soapy water.
  2. Brush plates with butter or oil prior to use.
  3. Always use oven mitts when handling a hot krumkake iron, as handles will become extremely hot with use. We recommend wearing oven mitts or latex food handling gloves during rolling process.

Product Reviews

    I have used the product more times at Christmas than any other time , I be live it would be safe to say that it was used at lease for forty years , what I do is use a wooden doll about 1 1/2 to 2 inches an make the cookies that way, grand kids love them that way. and the product has been a great item to use,,,thanks for being there to make the kids happy,,,they are now making them for them/self…great product

    The iron is easy to use and much more efficient than an electrical appliance. Easier to clean, too.

    I love this iron. It has the exact same pattern as my really old one. It also worked exactly the same. It came very fast and I was entirely pleased with my order.

    Soy de Argentina. Aquí nunca vi algo así y me llamó la atención. Me anime … y lo compré. Recien lo probamos en familia. Es FANTÁSTICO. Que ricos son!!. Es una reliquia que espero pase a mis hijos y a mis nietos y así. Gracias

    I didn’t grow up with a krumkake tradition but I moved to an area that celebrates winter holidays profusely with both krumkake and pizzelles. Having a wheat allergy, I felt left out. After a few burnt and underdone monstrosities, I have figured it out how to use it. (If you are also brand new to the pizelle and krumkake making tradition, note that the learning curve is a bit steep. Don’t be afraid of using lots of butter. You can do it!) I am delighted to say I will be able to join the traditional winter indulgences this year!

    I have celiac disease. I inherited my MIL’s krumkake maker when she passed away but I couldn’t use it for fear of gluten contamination. I was so excited to find Nordicware’s krumkake iron. It’s perfect and almost exactly like what my Norwegian MIL had!

    I’ve had this for about a year, but have always been a little intimidated by it, probably because every recipe I’ve read says something very different about cooking times. Today, I was determined to make stroopwafels with it. I used another recipe, but used the NordicWare instructions cooking time…and presto! Lots of perfect (okay, almost perfect; after all, this is the first time I’ve used it), nicely browned, extremely thin cookies. After this, I won’t hesitate. Great product!

    its a long tradition on my mothers side of the family to use this krumkake iron not for krumkake, but for fresh corn tortillas. the design it puts on the tortillas always gets comments from guests.
