- It was difficult to tell when there was too much batter in the waffle maker. When there is too much batter, it overflows from all sides and is not fun to clean up.
- As the waffle maker ages, a region in the top-mid stops getting hot, resulting in waffles that are not uniformly cooked.
- I was not able to make sense of the green and red lights on the top, but it was easy enough to learn how to tell when the waffles were done by looking at the steam
Even with these problems, this waffle maker is well worth the price and I would definitely buy it again.
However it was cheap and it does make waffles, I guess you get what you pay for.
Pros: Clean design, effective non-stick interior.
Cons: Low-heat, uneven heating, and fixed hinge.
The quick summary, if you don't have one, DO NOT buy one. If you have one already, keep reading.
Let me go into more details for those who want to make this thing work. Honestly, I would throw it away if I did not feel bad for contributing to waste. Summarizing the internet and my experiments:
1) This thing is not hot enough to make waffles, as a result people end up with gummy waffles. Also why it is more similar to "steaming" the waffles, because browning won't happen until the water slowly evaporates out of the waffle. The solution is to make a waffle batter that does not rely on instant heat to create the rise and light texture, and has limited water content. The second stage of baking powder requires heat, so try adding the following extra steps: a) whip the egg whites to stiff peaks before folding in, b) add buttermilk or lemon juice plus baking soda, c) add yeast to the batter and let sit overnight, or d) cut some of the milk and replace with about half that amount of yogurt or whipped heavy cream.
2) The low temperature also requires much longer cooking time than the manual's 3-6 minutes. Instead aim for 8-10 minutes, or wait a minute or two after steam stops spewing out the sides. Avoid the temptation of "locking" the handle, because to get more even heating you will want to ever slightly overfill and locking the handle will prevent the waffle from rising.
3) The lid is a fixed hinge, as opposed to the fancier loose ones that sit flat no matter how high the waffle rises. As a result, if your waffle rises too much, the back lifts up, causing the front to lose contact. Also the heating is uneven top vs bottom, and corners vs center. Some have recommended opening and rotating/flipping but the temperature is low enough as it is without opening half-way through. My solution has been to not oil the top and after 1-2 minutes of cooking, flip the entire contraption over, cook another minute, flip back over. The uncooked top batter sticks to the lid for an even coating on top and gravity keeps the bottom in contact. A minute after steam stops, I open and flip the entire waffle over for another minute or two of cooking. Still a bit uneven but within acceptable standards.
The result, an edible and decent waffle. I still don't know why I waste so much time on this cheap contraption. The cast-iron solution is actually faster...
I mixed up the waffle batter recipe on the back of the Hungry Jack pancake mix box, let the waffle maker preheat for 3-4 minutes until the green light came on, then poured in my batter. After a little experimentation, I let it cook for 6 minutes, and out came perfect waffles. When I make pancakes, they take about 4 minutes, so 6 minutes didn't seem excessive. However, because it only makes 2 waffles at a time, it would be slow to feed more than 2-3 people if they each expected to eat more than 2 waffles each.
For larger groups, you'd want a larger, higher-wattage waffle-make, or give yourself some lead time to prepare ahead. For us this waffle-make is perfect. The waffles were crispy on the outside, but the general consistency was more like a pancake... not surprising since I used a slightly modifies pancake mix. Before we try it again, we'll try to find a real waffle batter recipe.
