Aebleskiver pan

Where can I buy Aebleskiver pan in Canada, either in Toronto or Calgary. Currently I am in Calgary.

  1. It might be expensive to ship it to Canada, but my aebleskiver pan is a cast iron one from a store in Solvang, CA, and they do sell them online. The address is, and the website also has a great video showing how to make them. Mine is the 'original style' #5 and I have been very happy with it.

    1. Williams Sonoma sells cast aluminum aebelskiver pans, and it looks like there is at least one store in both Calgary and Toronto. We've always had cast iron in my family, but my sister recently received the WS one as a gift and has been pretty happy with it.

      I imagine there are quite a few places that you can buy them online. Lodge makes a cast iron version that is a couple of dollars cheaper than the WS one.

      1. I married into a Danish family so this was a "must have" item for me. I saw them at Williams Sonoma but there was no way I was going to pay $80 for a pan I'll use once or twice a year. Instead, I found a cast iron pan at Camper's Village (in Calgary)... for under $30! Highly recommended.

        I did end up buying the Aebleskiver cookbook from Williams Sonoma though. It was only $20 :)

          How is that pan working for you? Would it work on ceramic top stove? I've been looking for something to make Takoyaki, and this type of pan is very similar! Also, 24 or so dollars is very cheap!

            I had no problems with it. I have coils on my stovetop so I can't say if it would work on a ceramic stove top. Also, I have to watch them carefully because the indent in the middle seems to cook a bit faster than the sides. For a ~$50 savings on the pan (Camper's Village vs. Williams Sonoma price), it was definitely worth it.

              That sounds perfect! Thanks for your help. :) Now I can make delicious Takoyaki! Well... once I get the pan~

                Not that I have any investment in Williams Sonoma :) but their pan is $39.95 in the US, not $80. I don't know what it would cost in Canada but I'm guessing not double.

                There are certainly pans out there for less though!

                1. re: stomachofsteel

                  The pan was at least $70 Canadian because I remember thinking about ridiculous the price was! I'll check it again next time I go to Chinook.

                    1. re: cellophane_star

                      I checked WS yesterday... the pan was $59.99 (Canadian).

            2. This store (in Edmonton) carries them. You can order on line. Cheap too.


              1. Your going to laugh but I saw one in my local Target store by Nordic Ware $22.00 US dollars I believe I read there are Targets in Calgary. Check it out.

                  You mean in the states? We have a target here, but it's a Canadian company, and unrelated to the American one. However, if this is in canada, there is a Canadian target across from my house! :D

                  1. re: KiKiKiKida

                    I looked up and saw Target in Calgary and thought they meant now not 2013 sorry. J

                    There are no Target stores in Calgary (yet). We have Zellers stores (similar but not as good) but they don't carry these pans.

                    1. re: cellophane_star

                      We have Target stores. It's a Canadian company. The American company is setting up stores in 2013.

                      I don't think zellers would have them at all... I've tried walmart also, but no luck. I have to try that camper place soon!
