    Consistent waffling, February 12, 2006

    Update: Daily use, keeps going and turns out excellent waffles.
    I mentioned below that waffle batter can be stored in the fridge. Try leaving it out overnight. The batter turns slightly sour, and still makes great waffles, but with a sourdoughish flavor that is pure heaven with maple syrup. And you can make some and leave it next to the waffle iron the previous night so all you have to wait for in the morning is for this waffle maker to heat up.

    Interesting that this product is getting polarized reviews. Either very good or terrible. Here’s my experience and then comments others might find useful.

    - I made a batch of chocolate waffles to freeze (to reheat and serve with ice-cream). All 14 turned out perfect. Before that, I made 7 regular waffles that came out GBD – Golden Brown and Delicious. All I did was follow the light and use settings from 3 to 4.
    - Going back and forth to get my preferred color was easy because 3 was still 3 after going to 4 (and a bit more). The initial and subsequent uses didn’t cause variations in the color. Good design.
    - Wiped all of it clean with a wet kitchen napkin. Easy.
    - Miles ahead of my last waffle iron, which required a lot of guessing and waffle rejection.
    - DON’T open the lid until you see the ready light. Or bye bye waffles. They do not like to be disturbed until ready.
    - A good recipe is important. Don’t use pancake mix, which is simply a combination of the dry ingredients formulated for pancakes and not waffles. Besides it’s a rip-off, like selling $1 unglazed tile as a $20 pizza stone.
    - Here’s my adaptation of a Good Eats recipe: 2 cups all purpose flour, tsp baking powder, half tsp baking soda, tsp salt, 3 tablespoons sugar. Whisk together thoroughly. Combine 1/2 qt whole buttermilk or pint full fat yogurt + pint milk and 2/3 stick melted butter and pour into dry stuff. Mix with rubber spatula for ten seconds (don’t overmix, small lumps will be ok). Leave for about 5-10 min. Turn on waffle iron, spray plates with pam or similar spray. Drop two ice-cream scoop-sized blobs slightly behind the middle and let the lid down. Setting: 3-4. Remove when green light comes back on. Easy. Excess can be stored overnight in an airtight box in the fridge.

    If I could wish for anything more, it would be for a ready light that was visible from the far end of my long kitchen. The light is designed to be in sight of a normal height person doing other stuff nearby. I have a long kitchen so the light is barely visible from my sink on the other side. Since then I’ve been listening for the “click” that flips the red light to the green.

    I’ve owned three or four waffle makers and none of them compare to the quality of this gem from Cuisinart. If you’re picky about waffles–and why shouldn’t you be?–then spend a little extra on this model and get effortless results. Here’s what makes this a GREAT wafflemaker:
    1) An accurate thermostat–no surprises when you open the lid
    2) A consistent heating surface–avoid hot spots or undercooked waffles
    3) A variable timer–essential if you have more than one waffle color preference in the family
    4) Smart design–it stores on its side, taking up a LOT less space in your cupboard
    5) Easy to clean exterior–cleans up with a damp paper towel
    6) Dependable non-stick finish–unlike cheap waffle makers, the nonstick finish on this model does not wear out
    7) Cool-touch lid–never burn your hand on a waffle maker again
    I am genuinely thrilled with my Cuisinart waffle maker and I believe it’s an absolute bargain. If you’re used to spending big bucks on store-bought waffles–or if you have a cheap, junky waffle maker at home–treat yourself to this nice little unit. It’s a low-cost luxury. Plus, you’ll have a fun time making waffles (and impressing your family and friends!). Bon appetit!

    Great waffler, August 6, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker (Kitchen)
    I am so surprised by the negative reviews of this product. We’ve had this waffler for a year now and have used it A LOT. I’d estimate 75 times- usually once or twice a week. We’ve never had a problem with sticking and the waffler is going strong. The waffles turn out great, every time.
    One thing to consider, waffles require you to use oil in the batter. It’s what gives them the nice crispy golden brown outside, and I imagine it helps with the sticking too. Now, I’ve never encountered a waffle recipe that doesn’t call for oil, but it makes me wonder if those who have problem with sticking are simply using pancake batter???
    We tried other wafflers with our regular batter recipe and the results were awful- heavy and dense. This waffler makes a nice light waffle. The selector really works to get the desired done-ness, it’s a great feature and we’ve found the results to be very reliable.
    In short, we think this is a great product. Our experience with other wafflers indicates they’re not all created equal, and this one is quite a good model. We like ours so much we’ve completely stopped making pancakes!
