Nordicware 15040 Cast Aluminum Stovetop Belgium Waffler
With this array of pans, you can make breakfast the best meal of the day. All pans are PFOA-free nonstick coated cast aluminum. 10-Year Warranty.
Nordic Ware was founded in 1946 by a determined wife, Dotty, and her resourceful husband Dave, newly back from the second world war. With only $500 in their pockets, a few good ideas and a desire to create a business of their own, a humble kitchenware company was launched from the basement of their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the beginning, Nordic Ware’s product line was only a handful of items, all of which were specialty Scandinavian ethnic cookware products. But times have changed! 70 years later with a good measure of perseverance added, Nordic Ware is still proudly manufacturing the vast majority of its products in Minneapolis. We’re proud to say that we’re still family-owned and operated, with three generations involved in our business, and each year we add innovative items to our expansive kitchenware line.
70 Years of Innovation
With wife Dotty at his side, Dave Dalquist returned from WWII to start a business. From humble beginnings in a basement, Nordic Ware has become an internationally distributed kitchenware brand with a variety of product lines, hundreds of products and millions of fans!
Still a family owned and operated in the US, the company is honored to occupy a place in the new Food History exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Last fall, Nordic Ware was chosen for the prestigious 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Award for Sustainability, which firms we work hard to minimize our environmental footprint. Our company moves into 2016 poised for the future, with last year setting an all-time record in sales volume and production efficiency.

Nordicware 15040 Cast Aluminum Stovetop Belgium Waffler
Just look at this old-fashioned Belgian waffler and you can smell the aroma of crisp browned waffles awash in berries and whipped cream or running with melted butter and syrup--surely it's a trick of the memory. Making four of those deep-pocketed beauties at once with this waffler is no trick, though. Simply preheat the cast-aluminum waffler on a gas or electric stovetop: first one side, then the other. Pour in your batter, close the waffler, and cook for 30 seconds; then flip the waffler over and cook two to three minutes more. The waffler is 8-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches and has stay-cool plastic handles. It needs to be hand washed in soapy water. --Fred Brack

First batch (3sets) I made today were: overnight,yeasted,whole wheat,
buttermilk,buckwheat w\ pure maple syrup.Turned out perfectly(see pic)!
GO SLOW &METHODICALLY W\ LOW FLAME. Preheat each plate seperatly (at same time/very low heat)& add med. thin ( slightly thicker than pancake bat.), smooth to edges, cont.cooking1-3min. after repl. 2nd
plate, then flip & remove 1st plate to crisp top while finishing cook(1-3min.). Beautiful! Remember LOW FLAME works best & spray oil.
Easy to use
Easy to clean
Flat, takes up no space when stored, can be tucked away
Makes 4 thick waffles with very deep wells for topping
Sturdy construction, should last unless plastic handles break off
Plastic handles stay cool
Great control over cooking temp on stove top
Waffle release beautifully, no sticking
Heavy iron cooks and browns evenly
Releases beautifully, no sticking
This could be a lifetime tool if it didn't have the non-stick surface and also if the cast aluminum ran the length of the handles. So even if the plastic comes off, there would be aluminum underneath.
I wowed my family at the first use. I just followed the Belgium Waffle recipe that came with the packaging. It was so easy and tasty. If you don't have a recipe in mind, try that one first. I recommend doubling the sugar as it only calls for 1 tablespoon. And then experiment with how much batter to add. If you watched the video on Amazon, they instruct that you add one cup of batter in the center of the pan. And the batter is suppose do spread when you put the top piece down. That is not what happened for me no matter how I tried.
I warned the two sides of the iron on separate burners on med-low. I increased the batter to 1 1/3 or 1 1/2 cup starting out in the center and the going out into filling most of the for squares. I put the top piece on and immediately flip. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Then flip and cook for 1 minute (up to 2 minutes if it didn't brown the first time because the speed of how I scoop and drop the batter changes). This ensures an evenly toasted crunch on both sides. You can check the browning as frequently as you want by slightly opening the iron while cooking. Make sure to only do this after the initial 2 minutes when the batter is almost completely cooked.
If your batter overflows, but is not dripping, just let it cook. You can easily peel it off when it's cooked. You try to wipe it, you will smear it and the residue will be harder to clean off. Should you insist on cleaning it, just pick up the iron and take it over to the kitchen sink and wipe with a damp cloth and try to get it all off before returning to stove.
Now that I've got the technique down, I'm going to try other recipes. Especially recreating the liege waffles of Belgium!
Make waffles for my son instead him eating the frozen ones.
The yeast recipe is a bit more complex than some other ones just using baking powder.
I dust them with powdered sugar, butter and syrup - delicious!
You have to play with time for cooking based on your stove top. Really have to get it hot on both sides before adding batter.
RECIPE for easy waffles(no yeast)
2 eggs - separate whites (keep)
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 3/4 milk
1.5 Tablespoons of sugar
1/4 cup melted salted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 teaspoons of FRESH baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of real vanilla extract (you can use fake if no real is available)
Stir in milk
Whisk in Flour
Whisk in salt, baking powder, sugar, Vanilla, butter, and oil.
Make a nice even creamy consistency.
Beat egg whites.
fold in beaten egg whites.
pour into preheated griddle. close.
Cooking times will vary. I have an electric glass smooth top. I cook on a 7 for about 4 minutes, then flip. After about 2 minutes, I peak after I have flipped. you want it lightly golden brown on the poured side (the now top side). The bottom will be brown in the middle before it browns on the edges like the top.
Once ready, I just take the one half off and flip onto a plate.
The freeze well too.
Now for some fried chicken and waffles!
Or brown sugar and cinnamon waffles!
