Top customer reviews
1. I did not have to put any type of coating on the waffle grill, even for the very first waffle; there was absolutely no sticking.
2. A little over a half cup of batter was used; spread evenly with a butter knife to the edges. There was no overfill, as relayed by some users.
3. The waffles cooked very quickly, there was very little mess and the entire process was simply a fun experience.
4. The cord storage just didn't work. If the cord is wound as directed, it would be forced into a very uncomfortable situation.
This waffle maker did its job but I also believe the ingredients have a lot to do with how the waffles turn out. It's best and more fun to experiment. These are non-negotiable ingredients/instructions for me since my goal is to have a waffle that is crisp on the outside, moist and light inside with enough flavor on its own before serving with fruit and syrups and whipped cream.
1. Always separate the eggs and beat the egg whites for the fluffiest waffle.
2. Buttermilk or a substitute of milk with vinegar is preferable to milk alone.
3. A little bit of sugar helps the color and taste.
4. A couple of tablespoons of cornstarch helps to retain the structure of the waffle.
5. If not consumed immediately, the waffles are re-toasted in the oven at 200 degrees.
I have tried 5 different mixes, Brand names. I have tried crisp and the only thing that is crisp, is the outside 1/8". These waffles are very thin, no I don't want thick like a Belgian, but something is better than crepe thickness.
When I first plugged it in, it heated too quickly showing the light that it is ready. It didn't produce an edible product. It wasn't until the third time I used it that it approached 80% of the heat needed. Now I need to keep it at heat setting 5.5, to get any heating to brown the batter.
The beep is not loud enough, yes I need hearing aids and I do wear them but still it's too quiet.
Now the kicker, I only use canola spray and I clean the surface with light solution of Dawn/water. After 5 uses, the decal to the inside of the switches is disappearing. Even slight wiping, with my finger, has removed some.
The problem with most waffle irons out there now is not enough heat, producing rubbery, pale waffles. The B&D I first tried took over 10 minutes, and the waffle was barely brown. I also tried an Oster, but it only did slightly better.
I tried the Chef's Choice based on recommendation by Good Housekeeping and Cook's Illustrated, these recommendations were mostly backed up against online reviews.
The first batch came out okay - I used the "crispy outside, moist inside" setting. They were better than the other two irons, but nothing compared to the trusty old Toastmaster. After a little experimentation, I found the best settings for those truly crisp waffles.
First, the guide instructs you to make a very thick batter...even if using a commercial mix, add more mix to make the batter thicker. I found this made the waffles a little thicker, but also very tough.
To get perfectly golden crisp waffles with this iron - Use Krusteaz Belgian Waffle mix (my favorite for years). Make the batter just slightly THINNER than the instructions on the box. Also, while it seems counterintuitive, use the "uniform texture" setting. This will give a perfectly even bake across the waffle, with a nice crisp outside and soft interior.
Also, the name "Belgian" only describes the size of the holes, but the waffles themselves are very thin like a regular waffle, therefore you miss out on the deep pockets.
Not bad for the price, but I do continue to miss my old $10 Toastmaster (which also was NOT made in the US, so that isn't the issue). Why are there so many bad ones on the market these days?
