There are better made, higher quality waffle makers on the market, of course. What you should know right off the bat is that this isn't a high end waffle maker, nor does it really claim to be. But, for approximately $24.00 (I've seen it as low as $19.99 during the holidays), it's a perfectly good, small, relatively easy to use waffle maker with the added benefit that it allows you to make animal shapes. And who doesn't like animal shaped waffles?

Well, me, for one, but that's completely unimportant. My kids love them.

This is a "plug and play" device. Plug it in, let it heat up, and then make some waffles. It's that easy......assuming you maximize your success potential with a few tips.

Tip #1 Let the waffle maker heat up thoroughly before using. I don't use water splash tests or anything like that... just give it at lest 5-7 minutes before you start pouring batter on the thing. This gives you the best chance of evenly cooked waffles.

Tip #2 Use a batter bottle or some other easy to pour batter delivery system instead of just a big bowl and a spoon. We've got one of those plastic bottles with a small nozzle on the end that makes battering the waffle maker EASY because you can control the amount going onto the surface very easily with minimal mess. Trying to just pour or spoon batter lessens your chance of an evenly cooked waffle.

Tip #3 Don't overfill the animal spaces. Overfill leads to a difficult time cleaning the item.

Tip #5 Ignore lights indicating that the waffles are done. Lift the lid and look yourself.

Tip #6 Use cooking spray. A light misting before you add the batter will virtually guarantee that the batter won't stick.

We got a great price on ours, which is why we took a chance. But the first bake was somewhat of a disappointment. The animal spaces are small, so getting the lion's legs and tail adn the elephant trunk filled with batter is a challenge.
By the time we were able to fill the shapes, some areas were already getting done... even before closing the thing. Then we tried filling it faster adn not worrying about getting the shapes filled perfectly. EVERY waffle came out partially burned and partially uncooked.
I'm not a novice at baking waffles, I own three other irons. With a toddler at home, this seemed like a fun way to make smaller waffles. I'll stick to a real waffle iron. This one is just a toy that doesn't really work very well.

This is wonderful, the waffles don't stick when using an olive oil spritzer, and not that bad to clean. It's a little more light weight than I expected, but so far no problems with the quality. Tip for anyone who is afraid that cleaning will be a problem.....hold the base and lean sideways over the sink while washing/rinsing with a sprayer. Clean up is very quick this way.

I bought one of these for the kids and, for a short time, I was king of all dads. A very short time. After 2 weeks of semi-daily use, it stopped working. It's an obviously cheap waffle maker so I wasn't expecting amazing waffles to come out of it, but I was hoping for it to last for more than a couple weeks of use. Smart Planet probably wasn't planning on it being used more than once or twice a week so I guess Smart Planet and I both learned something today. Well, I'm not sure what they learned. I learned to not buy Smart Planet waffle makers.

I called this a thankyoumachine because as a grandparent who bought this I got the usual "thank you for the gift Gpa." however it seems that two or three times a week I get a text saying "the circus was at our house again today THANKS SO MUCH". I did not think it would be such a big hit but it is so I say to you Thank You.

This waffle maker was a disaster. I could not clean out all the batter that dripped down into the main part of the waffle maker. I tried everything I could think of to get in between those little nooks but I ended up having to throw it out in fear the left over batter would entice mice or ants.

This waffle iron works surprisingly well. I bought is as a gift for a friend who loves waffles and elephants. She now uses it every Sunday. I wasn't really expecting it to work so well--it wasn't very expensive and, too be honest I thought it would be messy and that the waffles would get stuck in the weird shapes--but they don't. She usually sprays with Pam before pouring waffle mix in and they come out easy.

Now, it is a little messy--waffles are inherently messy, especially if you're not a careful pourer. And, like any waffle iron, it takes some getting used to how much to put in so it doesn't overflow (though, even if they do overflow, it was surprisingly easy to clean up the shapes if you want them to look nice).

Overall a pleasant surprise.

I was afraid to get this after reading the reviews but i thought, what the hell why not try it! I am so glad i did! It is the cutest thing i have ever seen. I am an adult and love them, I am sure they would be more than perfect for kids.. they would love the shapes! and for everyone who was saying pouring it in is hard... um.. i don't know what to say about that. just dont overflow it and it will be fine. pur in the middle of each picture and close.. it will move and fill in all the slots when you close it!!! very easy and fun!
