Cleaning and Maintenance
Once you have finished baking, remove plug from electrical outlet. Leave top lid open so grids begin to cool. Never take your waffle maker apart for cleaning. Simply brush crumbs from grooves, and absorb any excess cooking oil by wiping with a dry cloth or paper towel. You may clean the grids by wiping with a damp cloth to prevent staining and sticking from batter or oil buildup. Be certain grids have cooled completely before cleaning. If batter adheres to plates, simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked batter and let stand approximately 5 minutes, thus allowing it to soften for easy removal. To clean exterior, wipe with a soft dry cloth. Never use an abrasive cleanser or harsh pad.
When waffle making is completed, simply store your maker with the cord wrapped securely around base. Plug prongs fit into the special grooves on the side of the waffle maker. For compact storage, stand waffle maker on opening end so Cuisinart logo is facing you. The waffle maker has been designed with a special latching feature so the lid stays closed during storage.
Tips on how to make the perfect waffles
Cuisinart recommends the heat setting #3 for golden brown waffles. If you prefer crisper, darker waffles, increase the browning control to setting #4 or 5. For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the center of the lower grid and close the cover. We recommend using 1/2 cup batter per waffle for evenly filled waffles. Waffles are best when made to order, but baked waffles may be kept warm in a 200°F oven. Place in a baking pan or wrap in foil while in the oven. Waffles wrapped in foil may lose their crispiness. Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow to cool completely, then place in plastic food storage bag. Use waxed paper to keep waffles separated. Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven when ready to use.

I mentioned below that waffle batter can be stored in the fridge. Try leaving it out overnight. The batter turns slightly sour, and still makes great waffles, but with a sourdoughish flavor that is pure heaven with maple syrup. And you can make some and leave it next to the waffle iron the previous night so all you have to wait for in the morning is for this waffle maker to heat up.
Interesting that this product is getting polarized reviews. Either very good or terrible. Here's my experience and then comments others might find useful.
- I made a batch of chocolate waffles to freeze (to reheat and serve with ice-cream). All 14 turned out perfect. Before that, I made 7 regular waffles that came out GBD - Golden Brown and Delicious. All I did was follow the light and use settings from 3 to 4.
- Going back and forth to get my preferred color was easy because 3 was still 3 after going to 4 (and a bit more). The initial and subsequent uses didn't cause variations in the color. Good design.
- Wiped all of it clean with a wet kitchen napkin. Easy.
- Miles ahead of my last waffle iron, which required a lot of guessing and waffle rejection.
- DON'T open the lid until you see the ready light. Or bye bye waffles. They do not like to be disturbed until ready.
- A good recipe is important. Don't use pancake mix, which is simply a combination of the dry ingredients formulated for pancakes and not waffles. Besides it's a rip-off, like selling $1 unglazed tile as a $20 pizza stone.
- Here's my adaptation of a Good Eats recipe: 2 cups all purpose flour, tsp baking powder, half tsp baking soda, tsp salt, 3 tablespoons sugar. Whisk together thoroughly.Read more ›
One thing to consider, waffles require you to use oil in the batter. It's what gives them the nice crispy golden brown outside, and I imagine it helps with the sticking too. Now, I've never encountered a waffle recipe that doesn't call for oil, but it makes me wonder if those who have problem with sticking are simply using pancake batter???
We tried other wafflers with our regular batter recipe and the results were awful- heavy and dense. This waffler makes a nice light waffle. The selector really works to get the desired done-ness, it's a great feature and we've found the results to be very reliable.
In short, we think this is a great product. Our experience with other wafflers indicates they're not all created equal, and this one is quite a good model. We like ours so much we've completely stopped making pancakes!
I think it is most important to note that the waffle batter is important. Baking is science basically and this should be no different. I read some of the complaints here and I realize that what is missing is the recipe people used. The recipe could likely be the culprit behind lack luster waffles, right? So in short, my recipe includes egg whites, cornstarch, baking soda and baking powder alongside of vegetable oil and flour. There is some sugar, vanilla, buttermilk, and milk in there as well. I think the baking soda and cornstarch are pretty important to a waffle that crisps, has good air, and is light. Maybe I am wrong.
The waffle iron is what people say that it is, a waffle iron. The price point can raise concerns that there are quality issues and I don't deny that I will have to see what happens down the line, but for starters, this waffle iron seemed solid enough to give me what I wanted and that is a waffle.
I made my batter, heated the iron and poured exactly ½ cup of batter in the center of the iron. I closed the lid and the lid lifted. It should not have done that at all, right? Well it did. I set the iron on 3 as the directions suggested (as did other reviews) and waited for the green light. In all the excitement I watched the green light go on and I just kept taking pictures. I left the waffle on there a bit too long but you know, it is a throw away because it was the first I made out of the box (after wiping the iron down) and I wasn't about to eat that.
I posted some pictures.Read more ›

this waffle iron has a fixed (not expanding) hinge, so it only works for very thin waffles. I was trying to replace a broken old garage sale waffle iron, but was very disappointed... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Lulu5
