It's been almost 5 years since I've purchased this pizzelle iron, and I'm happy to say that it's still functioning just as well as the first day I got it. We actually use this machine a lot more since we have kids now - these little wafer cookies are still a breeze to make...best part is that it's so fast that the kids don't have time to start whining "are they done yet?" Quick tip - use a mini cookie scoop to scoop out the batter. It's just the right amount to use, and you won't have to fiddle with two spoons when dropping the dough onto the griddle. The Norpro 25mm cookie scoop (a little over a teaspoon) is just the right size, so you don't have to worry about batter squeezing out through the sides.
I love this pizzelle iron - it's fast, clean, and helps me make one mean pizzelle! I bought this for my husband for Valentine's Day (and yes, I did make the pizzelles for him - his favorite dessert!) and he's been asking for more pizzelles ever since! Another plus - the pizzelle sizes are big enough to make one scoop ice cream bowls - perfect for people like me who don't like a huge serving of dessert all at once (but who won't turn down a second serving if it was around..!) I would definitely buy this again!
I would still like to know what I have to do to pour exactly the right amount of batter & where to place it to get a perfect pizzelle every time. It would also be nice if there were a signal to let you know when it's done.
Bottom line, if you don't want to spend a fortune, and you like pizzelles, I highly recommend the VillaWare V3600-NS PREGO Pizzelle Baker !
Pizelles are thin Italian cookies cooked 1- or 2-at a time in a pizelle iron. A century ago cast iron pizelle irons were held over the stove, but my grandmother gave hers up as soon as the decent electric ones came out in the 1960s.
This pizelle baker is VERY nice. The non-stick coating is easy to clean and the pizelle don't stick (be sure to use wooden utensils and only wipe clean with a paper towel so you don't scratch the coating). The iron heats quickly (maybe 5 minutes) and keeps constant temperature (I've had it about 2 years and have made at least a dozen batches of pizelle and haven't had any problems). Like MANY kitchen appliances, however, the cord is too short, IMHO - they do that so you don't accidentally pull the hot iron off the table, but you really shouldn't use an extension cord. For countertop use the cord length is fine. When I make pizelle, however, I like to sit (it takes about an hour to cook a 12-egg recipe), so I move my kitchen table near an outlet and put the iron on the table.
The baker comes with a recipe book. The first recipe is the traditional anise-flavored pizelle (anise tastes a lot like licorice, but don't let that discourage you if you've never tried it), and it's a good recipe. I skip the anise extract and add a slightly heaping teaspoon (for 6 eggs) of real anise seed that I crush in my palm before adding (anise seed is available in Hispanic markets). If you have an old recipe that calls for oil, you'll have to switch to butter to use the electric irons. Compare you old recipe to the modern ones and use a little experimentation and they'll taste just like your grandma's pizelle.Read more ›
THEIR CANOLIs are THE BEST IN THE WORLD.
I CHALLENGE THE WORLD TO DISCREDIT ME!
SO..I finally get the nerve and ask "WHAT DO YOU USE FOR YOUR SHELL?" (I have used WONTON WRAPPERS, ROLLED AND FRIED which are GREAT....).
THEY SAID A PIZELLE MAKER.
THEY SHOWED ME THE PIECE.
"VILLAWARE" I wrote on a NAPKIN.
13 minutes later, I CRASHED INTO MY GARAGE, DOVE OUT THE WINDOW, as my wife yelled "TAKE ONE OF THE KIDS!".
I shouted "YOU TAKE THEM.....I'M GOING ON THE COMPUTER!".
Whether or not they made it in the house I am not sure....BUT ONE THING I AM SURE ABOUT!
I GOT TO AMAZON, FOUND THE PIZELLE FOR LESS THAN EBAY, and VILLAWARE ITSELF! (I was tempted to become a DISTRIBUTOR).
THE REST IS HISTORY!
PERFECT COOKIES, that once ROLLED, become the ULTIMATE SHELL!
MARSCAPONE CHEESE WITH CONFECTIONER'S SUGAR....and BAM!
OR FAT FREE with FAT FREE CREAM CHEESE, and CONF SUGAR.
THINNED WITH RICE MILK AND CONF SUGAR.
WHATEVER and CONF SUGAR!
WHEW! I just typed for more time than I HAVE EVER BEEN AWAY FORM MY PIZELLE MAKER....back I go!
TIME TO MAKE THE PIZELLES!
PS YOU CAN MAKE THEM and REFRIGERATE THEM...when company comes...FILL THEM AND BAM AGAIN!
