So I original went for the Cuisinart Breakfast Maker that had the waffle maker because the plates were removable and dishwasher safe. I have the Cuisinart pizzelle maker and have been very happy with it so I thought the breakfast maker might be good. Unfortunately I was unhappy with it and sent it back. The upper plate did not brown as well as the bottom, it took forever to heat up and I could never get it crispy enough.

So I sprung for the All-Clad Belgium 2 square and extremely happy with it. A tremendous difference in the quality on how the waffles come out. They fluff up, they brown evenly and even though you can’t remove the plates it is easy to clean.

Before our granddaughter turned one, we bought a waffle maker from William Sonoma that made waffles in the shape of farm animals and a barn. For a long time, she'd walk in our door and say, "I want cow waffles!" I'm saving it for making them for our great-grandchildren! Enjoy your new one!

Adding ricotta cheese and blueberries(or strawberries) to Krusteaz waffle mix makes to die for waffles!! We have them a couple times a month!! We love our belgin waffles so much I ordered one from Amazon and had it shipped to Hawaii for our 12 day vacation there in 2018. I will never live it down from my friends that vacationed with us. :ROFLMAO:

Left it for the House Keeping staff, front desk staff was eyeing it up big time!

It is mine! I am still making him an occasional waffle as we are both being amicable and it could be some time until I move.

Have you made hash-browns using the waffle maker? Really crispy. Also a great way to make canned cinnamon rolls. Come out kinda crispy and there's divots for the icing to fill!!

We use an Inexpensive one we got on Amazon years ago. I’m not home so can’t tell you the brand but it makes great Belgian waffles.

Right now eating lower carb so can’t do the hash browns But thinking turnip hash might be good. I have made eggs, chaffles, mashed potatoes with egg white and scallions. Thinking of mixing some rice cauliflower with cheese and see what happens.

I am looking for a Waffle Maker. Any suggestions?
I like to think that when my wife married me, she got an excellent waffle maker. But my real specialty is Swedish pancakes.

Cusinart - makes 4 square waffles -

We add blueberries a lot. Hubby and I have two each - but the batter makes 7 or 8. I freeze whatever is left.

We have a Cuisinart liked the one used in hotels. It must be 25 years old or older.
The Commanderin Chief brought it for her grand kids,. Sorry, our grand kids. LOL.
I think, I will asked for one tomorrow for breakfast. LOL.

I inherited my mother's Sunbeam waffle iron about 25 years ago, when it was already almost 35 years old. It was always a special breakfast when she made us waffles on it as kids. It is now almost 60 years old and still going strong. I had to install a new electric cord on it about 10 years ago, because the original braided one finally gave up the ghost. Even the light on the dial still works to let you know when it is done!

It's a little more work to clean up and occasionally re-season than newer, non-stick waffle makers, since the grids are aluminum. But it makes regular, 9-inch-square waffles, that can be broken into quarters. It also has the optional, flat, grill plates, too. It was built in the days when most of our appliances were actually made right here in North America and they were built to last. Plus it is a nice connection to the past. :thumbup:

I've periodically considered buying one of the newer, non-stick, Belgian waffle makers, but I can't seem to let the old one go. Plus the frugal side of me has trouble justifying having two waffle makers, particularly since we don't make waffles that often. I think it may yet become a contest as to which will die sooner, it or me!!! LOL. :ponder:

Here is a picture and description of the identical model. Mine looks almost as good. It's the Sunbeam CG model.

I am personally looking for one where the griddle plates detach so they can be washed. Sure beats trying to wipe them down with a dishcloth.

That is what I wanted too. This all clad basically cleans itself, nothing sticks. The quality of the waffles is worth not having griddle Plates that detach imo.

Our Plates do not detach. Simply use a brush to clean them.

Mine does not detach, but is non stick and I first spray with PAM and really easy to just wipe down after use.

ah ha! chaffles :) I haven't tried them, but I've heard great things. You sound like a wonderful cook!

I bought a $10 one at Kmart one year at Christmas, wrapped it and put it under the tree: from Santa to the fam.

It worked great, and AFAIK, my son is still using it. Waffles were always crisp but I attribute that to the recipe as much as the machine. Super easy to clean, too.

I think I saw you mention egg whites? My boys developed their love of waffles at my aunt & uncle's house. My auntie always separated the eggs. (She is an amazing cook and baker - farm girl, of course!) I used my Kitchen aid to beat the egg whites. The recipe that came with the machine also called for a stick of butter (it made a large batch) and a twist of lemon. Heavenly!
