Cleaning and Maintenance
Once you have finished baking, remove plug from electrical outlet. Leave top lid open so grids begin to cool. Never take your waffle maker apart for cleaning. Simply brush crumbs from grooves, and absorb any excess cooking oil by wiping with a dry cloth or paper towel. You may clean the grids by wiping with a damp cloth to prevent staining and sticking from batter or oil buildup. Be certain grids have cooled completely before cleaning. If batter adheres to plates, simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked batter and let stand approximately 5 minutes, thus allowing it to soften for easy removal. To clean exterior, wipe with a soft dry cloth. Never use an abrasive cleanser or harsh pad.
When waffle making is completed, simply store your maker with the cord wrapped securely around base. Plug prongs fit into the special grooves on the side of the waffle maker. For compact storage, stand waffle maker on opening end so Cuisinart logo is facing you. The waffle maker has been designed with a special latching feature so the lid stays closed during storage.
Tips on how to make the perfect waffles
Cuisinart recommends the heat setting #3 for golden brown waffles. If you prefer crisper, darker waffles, increase the browning control to setting #4 or 5. For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the center of the lower grid and close the cover. We recommend using 1/2 cup batter per waffle for evenly filled waffles. Waffles are best when made to order, but baked waffles may be kept warm in a 200°F oven. Place in a baking pan or wrap in foil while in the oven. Waffles wrapped in foil may lose their crispiness. Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow to cool completely, then place in plastic food storage bag. Use waxed paper to keep waffles separated. Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven when ready to use.

I never used the waffle iron again. The waffles stuck so bad that it was impossible to get it cleaned. I threw it away.
Why did I give it five stars? Call me crazy, but I bought another one. I thought I would give it another try. It worked. It didn't stick at all. I Here is the trick to do when you first get this waffle iron. Like another reviewer said, I used the Pam spray before pouring the waffle batter and I also added vegetable oil to the waffle mix. On my first purchase I used the Pam and added oil to the waffle mix, but the waffles stuck. On my second purchase I did everything the same (used Pam and oil in the mixture), BUT I did something different. I put the waffle dial between 4 and 5. After I poured the waffle mix in, I waited for the green light to come on. Note: you get a green light when the waffle maker is ready for you to pour the mix in and once you do and close the lid it turns red and then will turn green again after awhile). So anyways, I poured my mixture in and waited until the green light came on. Do not peek to see if the waffle is ready. Once the green light comes on...DO NOT OPEN THE WAFFLE MAKER. Let it cook for a little while longer (I waited pretty long thinking that it is going to be burnt). Then open it up. You will have a thoroughly cooked (really crispy cooked waffle that does not look appetizing). The key is the first waffle is never to be eaten. First because it helps get the new smell, newly heated waffle iron out. Second, because you cooked the waffle so very long. But that is the key. By cooking it so long the first time is like seasoning the waffle iron. If you open it too early it will separate the waffle and it will stick. So be sure to make your first waffle the throw away waffle.
On your second waffle, still use the Pam and put oil in the mixture. I put the dial between 3 and 4 and opened the waffle iron exactly when the light turned green. It came out wonderfully. My third waffle (on another day) I put oil in the mixture and didn't even bother using the Pam. It didn't stick at all and came out perfect.
For those who are wondering what waffle mix I used thinking that would make a difference in if it sticks or not. I used the Krustez pancake mix. Though Krustez says to just add water. Make sure you put in oil. I used a good amount of oil the first three times because I was still nervous about it sticking. Now I use some oil.
I hope this helps someone. Like I said, the first one I bought it stuck every time and I had to throw it away. The second one works great and I think it is because the first waffle was my throw away waffle and I made sure it was thoroughly cooked. Finally, I can have waffles again.
If this review has helped you, please comment and let me know. Thanks.
UPDATE: FROM READING THE COMMENTS TO MY REVIEW IT SEEMS THERE IS A LITTLE CONFUSION ABOUT "THE FIRST WAFFLE." I TOOK THE WAFFLE IRON OUT OF THE BOX AND I ONLY THREW AWAY THE VERY FIRST WAFFLE THE FIRST TIME I USED IT. EVERY OTHER WAFFLE AFTER THAT YOU EAT. WHEN YOU USE IT ON ANOTHER DAY, YOU DON'T HAVE TO THROW AWAY THE FIRST WAFFLE. YOU EAT THEM ALL. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WAFFLE LOVERS....FOR THE LIFETIME OF THIS WAFFLE MAKER, ONLY ONE WAFFLE WAS SACRIFICED AND ALL THE OTHERS WERE EATEN. :)
So I decided to get this Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker based on some blog reviews. This thing makes waffles in a snap and was way faster than my previous waffle maker. I used the 3 setting and found that to be the sweet spot to making waffles. I usually place 2-3 spoonfuls of batter in the middle of the waffle maker so it does not overflow during expansion.
So in case you are wondering what recipe I use, here it is:
2 cups of flour (General purpose, non self rising is okay)
2 tsps of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda - don't get these confused or your pancakes will turn out WAYYY different.
4 tsp of sugar - or 0 tsp of sugar, I have a sweet tooth
2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of salt (if you use unsalted butter)
2 cups of buttermilk or (2 Cups of milk with 4 tsps of vinegar mixed in)
2 Eggs - separate the yolk from the egg whites and set the egg whites aside
3/8 of Cup Unsalted butter (if using 1/2 of cup of stick butter, this is about 3/4 of that stick) - melt this in your in microwave, or place in a bowl over boiling water - just get it melted.
2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
Number of Waffles Made: 8
Nutrition: deliciousness (100% based on a very hungry diet)
Mix dry ingredients.
Mix wet ingredients excluding the egg whites - still keep these to the side.
Note: If you use buttermilk, once you add it to the melted butter it will begin to coagulate very quickly, so be ready.
Mix dry and wet ingredients together...
Now whip the egg whites to at least the Foamy stage (lots of bubbles of trapped air), the higher stages: soft and firm peaks take a bit longer but aren't necessary.The reason we save the egg whites for last it to make sure we have fluffy pancakes - had you added them with all the wet ingredients your waffles would not be as fluffy.
Now add the mixed egg whites to the mixture and place the batter 2-3 spoons at a time in the center of the waffle maker, let it cook till the light goes green, then enjoy your (somewhat) healthy waffle made from scratch.
You can throw in chocolate chips into the batter to make chocolate chip waffles if you want to take your waffle game to the next level.
