Excerpt: Finally got around to buying one of these and all I have to say is...why the heck did I wait so long. The waffles it makes are much better than any store bought ones you can buy. My new favorite appliance.
Excerpt: I bought this several months ago and have used it a bunch of times to make quite a few waffles (10 or so each time). It is really non-stick and even the sides are easy to clean if you put in too much batter. Quick to make the waffles and clean up is easy. The non-stick coating smells really bad the first couple of uses, but didn't affect the waffles.
Excerpt: Absolutely love this waffle maker. At first I was hesitant because it made thinner waffles than usual but now I LOVE them! Heats up quickly, cooks evenly. It also comes with a little recipe book which had the most delicious recipe for waffles. Would recommend it.
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.
