This thing is amazing! It heats up fast, has dual timers, and makes perfect waffles and omelets. I bought it because on weekends my husband wants waffles, but I prefer eggs. This more than does the trick! It's sleek and easy to clean. I wish it was a bit more compact/portable, but I managed to find a space to store it in my extremely small kitchen. I do spray it once before each use with cooking spray and that ensures none of the waffles/omelets stick AT ALL and then just wipe the unit down with a dry paper towel when I'm finished cooking. A couple of times, I have slightly overfilled the omelet side and it then wouldn't remain latched closed and kept popping open during the cooking cycle, but that's my fault. In those instances I just held it closed by hand for the few minutes it took to cook. Overall, awesome product! Great value! I would definitely recommend it!
