    I purchased this waffle maker during the spring, and have used it two or three times a week since. It is fantastic, and I can highly recommend it.

    This waffle iron makes beautiful, fluffy waffles. I had a certain waffle iron from a company beginning with T that makes great toasters, but mediocre waffle irons. I didn’t realize how bad it was till a friend of mine made some waffles with that popular eighty dollar waffle maker. I almost cried! They were so good, but I knew I could never afford it! So I decided to try this one based on the good reviews. I’m ecstatic that I did.

    First, this machine is quick compared to my other waffle iron. Waffles using a basic recipe are done in less than 3.5 minutes.

    Second, the timer is a great idea. Relying on the “steam stoppage” method cooks the waffles too long for some recipes. The beeping when the waffles are done is just enough to bring your attention away from the bacon. Do NOT be foolish enough to leave the room when you have a waffle iron plugged in, for goodness sake!

    Third, cleaning is super-easy and storage is a breeze. I love that it folds and locks in an upright position. It fits right in my tiny, overcrowded kitchen.

    Last, the waffles are wonderful. Fluffy and crisp on the outside.

    Buy this waffle maker. It’s worth it!

    [updated January, 2011]

    We bought the Presto FlipSide to replace a faux pro waffler made by the blender company who shares its name with Fred W’s Glee Club. That one cost twice the price and lasted a mere three years before going to pieces. It was “Pro” in name only.

    Presto took a simpler and possibly more durable approach: Engineer the hinge on a traditional counter-top Belgian waffle maker so it can flip 180 degrees and let gravity work its special magic. The entire weight of the baking platform is supported by the counter top, not by a pair of screws driven into failure-prone plastic.

    When I unpacked the iron and set it on the counter, I noticed that the upper grid “floated” slightly when the grids were resting at the left side of the hinge. It might just be a mass-production variance but it was cause for concern because the iron has to close tightly for proper baking. When I flipped them to the right, the grids closed firmly, so the left side became the filling side and the right, the preheating and baking side. Do the same when yours arrives.

    The nonstick grids are deep enough to fall into, with dimpled tapered studs that assist in releasing the baked waffle. The baking surface is surrounded by a fairly generous overflow rim. At 1350 watts, it bakes hotter than the 1200 watt pro-look model. The Presto lacks a browning control but you can compensate by adjusting the baking time. What’s important is the initial temperature when the batter hits the grids, and if you turn a browning control too low, the grids are too cool to “fry” the outside. What you end up with is a textured pancake, not a real waffle.

    The battery-powered timer is a nice feature but not really a necessity if your kitchen, like mine, has plenty of timers (the stove, the kitchen scale, the microwave oven).

    The waffles come out about an inch and then some in height with a crisp, crackly exterior and a cloud-fluffy interior. We make our waffles from biscuit-and-baking mix but use the professional technique of separating the eggs and beating the egg whites before folding them into the batter. Baking time is 3 minutes for a waffle that would cost you at least a 10-spot plus tax and a tip on a hotel room service menu.

    Time has proven that the Presto FlipSide, at half the price, is twice the waffle iron for the money.
