I bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. He asked for a good one, so I had been researching waffle irons for nearly two weeks when I came across this one. Although it is a bit pricey (but still cheaper than buying it directly from KitchenAid), it is definitely well worth it. It is very easy to use and the waffles turn out great. It's fairly large and may not be easy for some to store, but it fits nicely in one of our lower cabinets. The dual-sided cooking is nice but somewhat unnecessary for just the two of us. We have made regular Belgian waffles and sugar waffles. Cleaning is easy except for when making sugar waffles because the pearl sugar can carmelize and become sticky in the deep pockets. But that's going to be the case for any waffle iron you use for sugar waffles. Regular batter Belgian waffles come right out, browns nicely on both sides. Hardly any mess, just wipe the pockets down after it cools and back it goes in the cabinet. KitchenAid is a great brand so I was comfortable purchasing it even though I wasn't able to see or touch the actual product. It feels solid and sturdy, doesn't tip over, and heats up quickly. This would be great for a family or any Belgian waffle enthusiast! And just so you're aware, it comes in a huge box.
The item is a little heavy, so prepare a space on your counter where it can stay. Add a little extra oil in the batter and do not spray. It is time consuming to clean the gunky oil residue it leaves behind. But made the most delicious waffles and very easy to operate.
I purchased this waffle iron to replace an iron that was received damaged due to shipping problems. I was greatly blessed to have received the damaged unit because this waffle iron is so much more than I ever imagined! I could immediately tell the difference in the quality of this machine and every other waffle iron I have ever owned. My family can bake 2 Belgian waffles, simultaneously, within 3 minutes. The controls are user friendly! It is very heavy, but that is only indicative of Hamilton Beach's solid construction (much like the stand mixer). The non-stick surface is wonderful; cleans easily by just tossing out the first waffles in the batch. We have used it every weekend (and some weekdays) since purchase and it is still pristine. The batter overflow housing cleans very easily with a simple wipe of a dishcloth. The stainless steel housing makes it a very attractive addition to my countertop. Serious waffle enthusiasts will believe that it is more than worth the price. If your family loves crispy, perfectly bronzed full size Belgian waffles that can usually only be found in restaurants and hotel buffets, this is the waffle iron to buy, without question! The best part -- as with my other Hamilton Beach products, the price is MY "price for life" since this one purchase will keep our family supplied with waffles for years!
Purchased it from Overstock as it was less than Amazon & its affiliated retailers. This arrived in the mail intact and on time. Make sure someone is home expecting it, as this box is hard to miss, and presents an opportunity for unsavories to take. Out of the box, this unit was unscratched, brand spanking new. Clear a space on your counter top, as this deserves it. Made my waffles using Hungry Jack waffle mix; it turned out crisp on the outside, and tender on the inside. Husband was quite impressed w/the test batch. After discarding the two (2) waffles per side as recommended (4 total), I used my gourmet mixes (purchased from Amazon), and this waffle iron has delivered consistent results. I've used it 3 days straight since receiving it (12/1), and every weekend since; the strange factory smell is virtually gone; there is no adverse effect on the taste of the waffles. I pour my batter from a measuring cup, and have the knack of eyeballing the amount. No spillage experienced since my first attempt; cleanup was easy, and the only recommendation would be to add a spill tray beneath, or maybe the purchaser can rig something up. The instruction manual has a recipe for savory waffles; don't forget to use the Internet for additional recipes. If I traveled via motor home, this waffle maker would come with me. Setting the timer @ 3:30 has delivered the right amount of crisp; no sog, and always tasty results. It REALLY does deliver the size/quality of waffles that is offered at hotels offering a hot breakfast. Two waffles with virtually no wait -- only as long as it takes to dish it out and serve. My family needn't wait, and the waffles are so big, that for our family of 3, we have 1 - 1 1/4 waffle left. No regrets purchasing this unit. With proper care and handling, I hope it lasts for generations, as this will go to my daughter.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exact
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Rugged, heavy, non-slip base
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Spot on
I purchased this model instead of the cheaper Waring because Overstock's website said 'made in USA. Waring's is made in China. When I received it, made in China was all over it. I do not appreciate being given inaccurate information.
Everything about this waffle iron is excellent -- the quality, the value and the style. You may pay a little more for this KitchenAid Pro Line than for other waffle irons, but the value for the money is superb. We love the turn-over concept when cooking, and we like being able to bake two waffles at a time. Our waffles have turned out crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside each and every time. Cooking with this product is a pleasure, as all results have been consistently delicious with no sticking. With our recipe, each cooking side takes one cup of batter -- over filling will make a mess! We are enjoying this product, and we definitely recommend it. You truly will not be disappointed.
This was such a fun and easy buying experience. Also paid only half of what I paid for my original one. Couldn't believe how gquickly it arrived. Thank you so much! I will be back to order something again.
