Excerpt: Bought this less than a year ago, stopped working in the middle of making a waffle, might add I used it maybe 15-20 times by this point. Contacted cuisinart, they said they would get back to me within 48 hours, ten days later, they told me to ship it to them at my expense and they would determine if I qualified for a new one. Not impressed cuisinart, because of the weight it was going to cost me nearly the same price to ship it, bought a black and decker one.
Excerpt: Just picked one of these up on the weekend, used it last night for the first time....quick, simple, consistent results every time, nicely crisped and browned when set on 3-1/2. Awful smell the first time you use it, suspect it's the non-stick coating as it's a similar smell to other non-stick cookware when you first use it...but the smell didn't transfer into the waffles, and it is VERY non-stick.
Excerpt: I've had this waffle iron for a year now and it still works great. It could be more solid but it is a great waffle iron for the price. It would be great to take camping due to it's compact shape and weight.
Excerpt: I can see how other viewers were unimpressed. It is not heavy duty like you would expect from Cuisinart. It is flimsy overall, and delicate. The very first waffle did stick a lot, but the next ones were fine. I used a plastic knife to pry them out and that worked well. It made good waffles (used their recipe, which seems to have a lot of oil), and very quickly too. I would not let kids use it except under very strict supervision - it is too delicate.
Excerpt: Opened the package and it was immediately obvious: it's junk. The temperature control knob has one full gradation worth of play, meaning you only get 4 settings instead of the 5, and it matters which way you are sliding it. The body feels flimsy and the hinge is under tension when open. No need to plug it in and try baking. It goes straight back to the store. It is not worth the carton it is packed into.
Excerpt: It worked fine for 4 months without issues. Now a days, it will make the first waffle without issues. When it comes to the second or third waffle both lights (red and green) will go off. It is not my outlet that is causing the problem. I tried four different outlets including the one in bedroom. Apart from that even though the settings is at '1', the front-left and front-right quarters get overcooked. I expected it work without issues for a few years.
Excerpt: Beautiful waffle iron. Really liked the features. Worked great for the first few months. The the waffles stuck, and have continued to stick ever since. I only use silicone utensils, so surface not scratched. Used light oiling of plates, still stuck. Sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, still stuck. Followed all instructions for care and cleaning, still sticking, so returning waffle iron. Disappointed that it started off gang busters and then became a pain.
