This waffler has great audible signals, so you can make waffles while you're walking around the kitchen doing other stuff - there's no need to watch for a light to turn off. That is a feature I especially enjoy, because it's quite boring to sit and watch a waffle maker cook or wait for it to heat up. I whip up my waffle batter and start making waffles while I'm preparing the rest of breakfast. When I hear a beep, I turn around, pull the waffle out, add more batter, and go back to what I was doing.
To get the most enjoyment from your waffler, I recommend purchasing a portioning scoop. A scoop will change your life when making waffles and pancakes - measuring cups just don't work a tenth as well. A #10 scoop is just about perfect, because if you fill it up with thick waffle batter and don't level it off, you'll get almost a perfect half-cup of batter, which is exactly what this waffler handles well. A #12 is fine too, but you will have to really overload it if you don't want to leave any space. A #8 is too big - it would need to be leveled off, which is a messy pain. This waffler will make perfect waffles with no incomplete edges if you have a properly leavened recipe and use exactly 1/2 cup of batter.
The shape of these waffles were a surprise to me - I was expecting a thicker Belgian waffle of the type you see in restaurants.Read more ›
We settled for this medium large waffle iron and were very happy. It cooks large waffles so fast, we can cook waffles faster than three children can eat them and actually have left-overs to freeze. Two waffles are enough even for the most ravenous child. The cooking is very even and it is really nice to have both the controls for darkness and for texture. Waffles do cook a little more slowly if the control is set to even texture, but we prefer the crunchy outside texture setting better anyway.
The iron is easy to use, cleans up well, directs spills away from the controls, and heats up quickly. Seems sturdy, but let us use it a year or two to see how it wears with time.
The waffles freeze and recook well, though we suggest using wax paper between them in large stacks. No more Eggos.
However the M840... wow! My wife and I made a bunch of waffles our first day. We tried all the settings to see which we liked best. There are two controls... a dial (1 to 5) to dial in your brown-ness level, and a switch that toggles from a more evenly softer waffle to a more crispy waffle. The softer waffles reminded me of the waffles you'd get at Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles (for you SoCal people out there). I preferred the more crispy setting.... crispy on the outside and still tender on the inside. Not crispy and dry like some cheaper waffle irons I've tried.
The iron takes a few minutes to warm up, but once it reaches its optimal temperature it cooks waffles in about 90 seconds or so. One ladle scoop of batter was the perfect amount to avoid any leaks of batter out of the iron.
The hearts break apart easily, would be great for small kids when you want a smaller portion.
We tried freezing some waffles we made and then used a toaster oven the next morning to warm them up and had great results. My wife said the reheated waffles were just as good if not better than the fresh ones.
The only downside to this waffle iron is the size of the waffle... its a little on the small side. Where I might eat two waffles from other waffle irons, I would probably eat three from this one. Not really a problem since the M840 cooks them pretty darn quick.
Cord can be folded and tucked into the bottom of the iron's base when storing.

Love this! It is a replacement for one that finally gave out after many years of heavy use.Published 11 days ago by L.D.Y.C
It's small. Like surprisingly small. Though the dimensions of the waffles iron are listed at 12" in diameter, the actual waffle making area is only about 8-9" across. Read morePublished 17 days ago by R. Schulze
