I bought this waffle maker a few weeks ago, but just used it today. It does cook the waffles too long if you follow the ready light, it practically burnt them, and the waffles were always in the top of the waffle maker, not the bottom, but they didnt stick. so i decreased the time to about 2.5 mins and it was a little better and the waffles stayed in the bottom part. After about 6 to 7 uses, the hinge on the right side broke, i noticed how flimsy it seemed to be, so i was really careful, and very gentle when closing it, i also used a pot holder, because the cool touch handles got kind of hot. The waffle maker still seems to shut with the hinge on the right side broken, but i still unplugged it and let it cool down, the extra batter is still sitting there. Are there replacement hinges i can buy separate to replace the broken ones? I think that once i can get the time right and the broken hinge fixed (im good at improvising), this waffle maker will probably be a good buy!
The waffle iron does a great job cooking waffles. The indicator light is a good judge for when the waffles are ready. I prefer an extra crisp waffle so I leave it in the iron for another minute or so. The only problem I have encountered is the right side hinge pin has broke. I am currently trying to locate a replacement.
I have used my waffle maker almost every day since it arrived. I have cooked everything from classic waffles to hash brown cakes, grilled paninis and omelettes. It is easy to use with the ready lights and a piece of cake to clean. There isn't a lot of storage space in my house, so its small size works perfectly for me. I highly recommend purchasing this item!
