We have 2 WMB500 Belgian Waffle Makers. The first one we bought, after a few uses the plastic hinge pivots broke and the waffle maker just doesn't make waffles that easily now. We bought another WMB500, I can make 2-3 waffles then the waffles stick and tear apart when we try to open the top. I have used non-stick spray to finish making the waffles needed. If I could get new hinge pivots the first waffle maker would be good (it did not stick and tear the waffles).
Our family loves waffles and this waffle maker is great for syrup or fruit toppings. Nice and deep indentations for syrup or sweet fruit juice. Beautiful deep brown color.
The only drawback is the instructions call for the pan to be turned over to cook. The cooker makes better waffles if you leave it to cook on the top, rather than flip it over.
Makes an awesome Panini!!! Heats up quickly. Cooks quickly. The only negative being that if you close and lock the press, as instructed, the sandwich comes out more like a "pancake" than a Panini. FYI . . . I simply close the lid as far as it will go without locking, set something of weight on the top, and cook as instructed. Panini cooks beautifully and is not crushed!!
