Why Electric Takoyaki Pans Are So Cool

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 216

If you have electric takoyaki pans, you may have the start of a very interesting party, including the kick off for some very interesting conversations. First, there is the fun of explaining what takoyaki is. (Warning: if you have squeamish friends, be careful how you break the news to them). If you are serving these at a party, have other options on hands for those who don't want to eat octopus or for those who might be allergic to some kinds of foods. Takoyaki are octopus laden balls of a specialized dough often served in the streets of Japan. If you want to make them seem more authentic, serve them in small paper bags or in takeout containers.

Why Electric Pans Are the Easiest to Use

There are two types of takoyaki pans to consider: a stove top model used to cook the takoyaki on the burner and the electric version, which might be more convenient for most people. The stove top pans are considerably more time consuming and may be difficult to use because they must be brought to the right temperature between batches. If the pan is too hot, the takoyaki can burn and fall apart. If the pan is not hot enough, they will not cook correctly and will taste terrible.

The electric pan should feature a timer that will let you know when it has reached the right temperature as well as when the takoyaki are cooked correctly. To make them easy to clean, these pans should have a detachable electric cord. However, most pans are fairly easy to clean by wiping out with a damp cloth. Be careful that you do not scratch their interior surface when removing the takoyaki or when cleaning.

These are more than just a novelty; they allow you to cook other foods as well. If you are a creative cook, you can adapt the takoyaki recipes to include other tidbits inside of them. One person reported making a sweet version with a different type of batter and small chunks of chocolate and nuts. When they were cooked, these non-takoyaki, takoyaki balls were drizzled with melted chocolate or dusted with powdered sugar.

Taking the Takoyaki Outdoors

In addition, you may choose to take the takoyaki pan outside to cook as part of a picnic or other get together. Choose a good location for the pan but do not use an extension cord that may allow an overload or could be tripped over. Convenient and fun to use, electric takoyaki pans can be more than a novelty if you are creative, and they are a great way to have a Japanese snack in your own home if you are not.
