2.0 out of 5 stars To Hot to Handle, March 2, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: KRUPS F654 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker with Nonstick Plates LED Indicators and Stainless Steel Housing, Silver (Kitchen)
I purchased this new waffle iron since my old Toastmaster was not heating properly. This new Krups is a disaster. All the instructions were followed for first use. We put in the batter and set our timer for the recommended four minutes. The waffle was burnt. The handle was so hot I could not hold it to open the iron and had to grab a pot holder. The hand opening is very small and not designed to have a pot holder in there.
We put some more batter in for the second waffle and set the timer for three minutes. The handle was still very hot and the waffle was dark brown. Dinner is not going well at this stage. The next waffle we tested when the light on the top went out. I still had to use something to open the top but the waffle was still dark.
At the end of cooking there was a puddle, not drops, of water on the counter. It must have come from the steam. Another design flaw is there is no overflow protection.
This baby is going back to the store. I will continue to look for another toastmaster or better designed item.
