Compact, attractive, easy to clean - great waffles
We make Belgian waffles every weekend. We want something that can make two waffles at once. We tried another brand but had problems with cleaning and both broke down within a year. On top of that, the temperature was not even and waffles would be under or over cooked.

This little beauty solved almost everything. The cooking plates come out so cleaning is a breeze. Don't know yet about how long it will last. And it makes pretty good waffles. Our first batch was much better than our last waffle maker.
I was worried because it was so much cheaper than our others, but it's working great so far.
Where our last waffle maker had a temperature control whick theoretically should have allowed us to automatically set the crispiness desired, this does not. It has a basic timing mechanism with a light that tells you when the grill is hot enough and it will tell you when the waffle is done, you may have to leave the waffle in longer than the recommended time. I'm using the stove timer. There is also a similar flaw, I think in the hearing elements, where the top element is smaller than the bottom for each of the two sections. While this one is much better than the other brands we tried, there is a slight, and I do mean slight difference in top and bottom. I can't figure out why they wouldn't Mahe these the same.
The removable cooking plates are a joy for cleaning. Since you can't immerse these things, I always felt I didn't get my last two waffle makers clean enough. This one allows you to pop out the plates and clean them properly. It has a removable tray to catch spilled dough or inevitable overflow (at least for me ). The rest can be wiped up with a damp cloth.
Delivery was fast. Got it in a few days. Overall, this is the best we found in all categories - price, quality
I will buy from this site again. I am happy so far with this product.
