We love waffles and used a Black and Decker "American" waffle maker (smaller pockets than a Belgian waffle-maker) for years, but the plates got too hard to clean and the waffles started to stick. We decided to switch to a Belgian waffle maker and this is the model we decided on.

First the good. This waffle maker holds a lot of batter - nearly two cups. In one batch, I can make a pretty filling waffle for each member of my family. No more arguing over who gets the first batch. It is also very well built and has a great non-stick coating on the irons. I also like the audible alert telling you when it's done and the fact that the cord wraps around the base and the unit can be stored vertically.

Now for the bad. I have yet to get this to make evenly cooked waffles. It always produces a waffle with a dark over-cooked circle on the bottom with the corners and entire top side completely under-cooked. I resorted to cooking it half way, opening it, flipping the half cooked waffle over and closing the lid again. This helped, but resulted in a few burned fingertips. I would be very hesitant to recommend this model.

Finally, a tip: If you've never tried a true Belgian waffle made with yeast, do yourself a favor, search for a yeast-based waffle recipe and make some. They're not much harder to make and you'll never go back to baking powder ones again!

I was skeptical about purchasing this waffle maker from other reviews online but I am glad I did. This is the best waffle maker!! I used a box of Krusteaz waffle mix and followed the directions on the box, set the waffle maker on 3, sprayed some PAM on the waffle maker, pour 1/2 cup of waffle batter in each slot and when it beeped I opened to find a big Belgian waffle slices cooked to perfection! There was no issue with spill overs, the color was a nice golden brown and it was fluffy, had a nice crisp but still soft, topped with fresh strawberries, syrup and whipped cream and we've got the best Belgian waffles right at home! It came right off the machine with no sticking or mess and the clean up was nothing as I only had to wipe it down with a paper towel after it cooled down. I absolutely love this waffle maker and would recommend to anyone. The unit did not get too hot to handle and the handle stayed nice and cool. It was so fun cooking up the waffles that before I knew it I went through a whole box! The great thing is you can make these ahead, freeze them and when you want a waffle just heat up in a toaster. No more frozen Eggo Waffles for me as I now have fresh homemade waffles right at my fingers anytime I feel like it. And the money I am saving because Eggo Waffles can get pretty expensive!

I love this waffle iron! I have had no problems with run-overs when following the recipe. I do spray it with Pam the first waffle each time I use it. It is nice that it has the beeper to let you know when they are done. I found it accurate -- we use it on 3 and it works great. Although it will store on end, it is much too tall for my cupboard. It locks closed for cooking and storage and opens easily. It takes too long to cook up a batch to feed my crew to use daily but we really broke it in over the holidays and had no problems or complaints. The recipes that come with it are great but are not "light & fluffy" recipes. I used it for my regular Belgian waffle recipe that comes out "light & fluffy" and it worked great with none of the usual spill overs. I highly recommend it!

I don't know how many of the negative reviewers have made waffles prior to a timer, but as my grandparents always told me, watch for the steam to stop and thy are cooked. It is as simple as that, ignore the beeper, watch the steam and voila, they are done. If you like them dark brown, put it on darker and watch for the steam to go bye bye, if you like them light brown put it on lighter and watch for the steam to go away... So all in all WATCH THE STEAM and you'll be "golden".

On another note, the waffles are awesome! They are huge, taking a half cup of batter per waffle which is double a regular waffle. I eat two and I am done. Great for a family! Also I have tried one recipe out of the included booklet, banana waffles (live in Hawaii and banana is a daily food...), and they were the best waffles ever!

I bought this waffle maker to replace a Toastmaster "Belgian" Waffle MakerToastmaster TMWB4BELW 4-Section Belgian Waffle Maker with Cool-Touch Exterior I wanted a waffle maker that was easier to clean (overspill doesn't flow into hinge) and made four full sized waffles. The "WAF-100" seemed to be the best mix of price and ratings, though reading the reviews raised concerns about how even the waffles would be cooked and the non-stickiness.

Today, I made a double-batch of my own recipe and the waffles turned out perfectly. I was happy that I made a double batch, because the iron is deep--even though it's not advertised as a belgian waffle iron (see uploaded pic, one waffle is as thick as two Eggo-brand waffles.) At a medium setting (just above "2"), I did not have any issues with the cooking of the waffles- they were cooked evenly and thoroughly, creating a crispy outer layer and a softer, fluffy center. I forgot to spray the cooking surfaces before I started, as recommended, but I had no issues with sticking at all. I had no spill over, either, but the machine takes so much batter at once that it's hard to over fill it. The machine is a huge upgrade over my previous machine.

I do not want to dismiss the other reports of sticking and uneven cooking. I suspect that a lot depends on the recipe (I use a baking powder-based recipe made from scratch) and that some recipes are more apt to get stuck. As for uneven cooking, I followed others' advice and used a mid to low setting and was patient. The machine cooked about as fast as the old Toastmaster, which had no temperature controls.

Overall, for the price, I am extremely happy with the waffle maker. I would certainly recommend it to a friend. Also, the name is funny. "WAF-100!!!" It sounds like a weapon on a military vehicle. Bonus.
