    Like any type oven or cooker the indicator light will …, February 2, 2015

    1. I read the reviews on this waffle maker and clearly a lot of people who write reviews don’t read instructions. It’s coated with Teflon and nothing will stick to it providing you “season” it prior to the first time uses – as you should do with all Teflon coated pans, etc.
    2. You’re buying a Teflon coated product so anything cooked in it will have a typical type texture that Teflon provides. If you want a very crisp outside texture then you need to spend a couple hundred dollars for a cast iron unit. The waffles have the type texture as you would see with those waffle makers at hotels who provide them with their continental type breakfasts they have.
    3. The green light is not a timer light. It’s an indicator light letting you know it reached it’s chosen temperature. “You” need to decide on how hot you want it and how long to cook it to your desire. Like any type oven or cooker the indicator light will shut off and on as the heater elements maintain the selected temperature.
    4. The cover is clearly designed to be lose and not because it’s going to fall apart. Larger hinges with a small shaft through it allows room for the power cord to go through to the top section inexpensively for the manufacturer. Some wiggle in the cover also allows you even out the waffle mix if you puddled it some – just wiggling the top to even it out. It also allows the waffle to expand some as it rises during cooking. If you want a little thicker waffle stop pushing down on the top.
    5. My unit cooked evenly and browned more the longer I left it in. Time wise it’s no longer to cook than a pancake. If it’s not cooking evenly be sure it’s preheated long enough for the heat to distribute evenly throughout the cooking surface. Let it heat up a little longer after the green indicator light comes on if need be.
    6. For $20 I got a gadget that heats up, doesn’t stick and looks like a waffle – Isn’t that what it’s suppose to do?

    Buy it. Best Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever bought myself., May 14, 2015

    This review is from: Oster CKSTWF2000 Belgian Waffle Maker, Stainless Steel (Kitchen)
    I should preface this review with the fact that I absolutely LOVE waffles, and that I’ve never had a waffle maker before- In fact, for my entire adult life, I’ve walked past waffle makers in the store and never considered buying one. I felt that wafflers were for “other” people. People with money and great kitchens and Saturday brunches. Surely not for me. But, one day several months ago, we were wandering down the waffler aisle and I told my men- Husband & 2 boys- that I wanted a waffle maker for Mother’s Day. Now, my husband is not a fan of waffles or shopping. So, Mother’s Day arrived and I was presented with instructions to “Pick out any waffle maker [I] want!” But I’m pretty cheap, so I picked this one.

    My waffler arrived exactly on time, which was awesome- but the FedEx man seemed oddly disturbed by my outward display of appreciation. (I know I’m not the only one who does the Amazon Delivery Happy Dance while the delivery guy’s still on the porch.)

    I opened the box and immediately read the instructions, which seemed pretty straightforward. I cleaned the hotplates with a damp cloth and then wiped them with a bit of vegetable oil on a napkin. Then, I made waffles.

    And I haven’t stopped making waffles.

    I’m eating one right now.

    Here are some specks:

    -The waffle maker gets hot. Be careful.

    -Some reviews say that the lid is loose- OF COURSE it’s loose; it needs to be able to slightly rise as the batter slightly rises. Come on.

    -The instructions call for 3/4 cup of batter, but I found that just over 1/2 cup works best for minimal seepage. Maybe 2/3 cup.

    -The instructions also call for a 3-5 minute bake time, I’ve found this to be true. Also watch for when steam stops billowing out & there’s just a thin stream of steam. (You can open the lid to check after about a minute, when the top crust is sealed. You can stick a fork into a thick of the waffle to check for doneness.)

    - When the temp is set right in the middle, the inside of the waffle is done just in time for the outside to be slightly crispy.

    -The waffles aren’t Belgians, but they’re not toaster-waffle-thin, either. Right in the middle.

    -The cinnamon roll thing works. We had them for breakfast. OM to the G.

    -If your waffler begins to get sticky, clean it well, make sure it’s dry, and re-wipe with a bit of oil. (Re-season it)

    ****I’m sure this waffle maker won’t last for years and years. Maybe I’ll upgrade to a sturdier, more expensive model eventually. But the price was right for this one. I recommend it.

    Here’s a recipe:

    Preheat waffler to middle setting.

    Sift together:

    2 cups flour
    3 tsp baking POWDER
    1/4 tsp salt
    1-2 tsp cinnamon (Optional, of course, but come on.)

    In a different bowl, mix:

    2 whole eggs
    1/4 cup oil
    1 1/2 cup milk (anything heavier than whole milk, like cream, will make a heavier waffle)
    3 Tbsp sugar (I use 1 white & 2 brown)
    Vanilla to taste (I use 1 tsp)

    add the wet ingredients to the dry slowly while mixing with a fork.

    Pour 1/2- 2/3 cups batter in the middle of the waffle and bake 2-4 minutes.

    Easiest removal of waffles is with a fork poked into the side & with a slight twisting motion.

    Throw some chocolate chips on that bad boy & cover him with maple syrup.

    Enjoy <3

    Way better than the Flipside, June 13, 2014
    By 
    S. Harrison (Denver, CO) –

    This review is from: Oster CKSTWF2000 Belgian Waffle Maker, Stainless Steel (Kitchen)
    My husband bought me the Flipside waffle maker (see my review) and after 9 months of frustration with that P.O.S., I went to Target and bought this one.

    Cooks beautifully, never sticks, nice size portion (the Flipside was gargantuan). Pretty too, and seems better made than the Flipside, particularly the thickness of the cooking surface. I just turn it all the way up, because I like a crispy browned waffle.

    I don’t know any waffle maker that accurately tells you when your waffle is done. Sometimes in cooking you just have to hover and tell by practice. Or peek! My grandma always told me, when it stops steaming, it’s done.

    She had an Oster too!!
