Summary: Good size for larger families, or for families that really love waffles!! Griddle versatilty is a nice bonus, too. Built to last, plates come off for easier cleaning. Don't use metal to clean the non-stick plates!!
Summary: the major selling point of this model is an affordable removable flat:waffle metal plate design that evenly distribute heat. it's also a simple attractive design with great national customer service ( I got a part replaced without hassle). however, it's unfortunate B&D did nothing to update this decade old design beyond flipping the plates over before shipping it out. search for G48TD and you'll find a thousand reviews all echo the same concerns.
... maker I've owned and the quality is not a nice as my other's have been

Summary: This is the third B&D griddle waffle maker I've owned and the quality is not a nice as my other's have been. The edges of the base are rather jagged and the springs holding the grills are inconvenient, in that they hit the edge of the handle and control box. Quality has diminished from my last unit. The coating on the griddles is not even, coating is spotty.
