Summary: Nice waffle iron. Unlike other reviewers, I have not experienced any of the non-stick material failing. This unit is used nearly every day in a facility that feeds about 100 people. We probably make 200 waffles a week with no problems. The finish is nice and it's overall a good unit.
Summary: We bought this on Amazon about a year ago. Makes me a better father and now my kids love me more. Seriously, this makes great, thick waffles. A little practice with the adjustable heat and they are cooked consistently to just how your family wants them. It takes about 2 cups of batter for one batch of 4 waffles, if this gives you an idea of how big they are. Seems to cook with consistent heat, good quality product, cleans up easily.
Summary: First two tries at making waffles was a disaster. Both times the waffles were dark on the bottom side and barely cooked on the topside. Tried adjusting the temp setting but that didn't help. Temp setting lever very loose and wobbly. Sent the thing back!
Summary: We received this for a wedding gift and liked it so much we purchased it again for my parents. One recommendation is to use real belgian waffle mix instead of traditional pancake mix. Placed on the middle setting, we've had no problems with uneven cooking or sticking.
Summary: I got my first one as a gift and I used it alot (at least 100 waffle mornings a year) and probably could have cared for it a better. I tried another waffle maker but had to come back to this great waffle maker. I will do my best to make this one last longer than the last one.
Summary: I chose this primarily because I didn't want to have to make each family member a waffle individually. This makes four good-sized waffles, so my family of four can call sit down to share waffles, and all eat at the same time. The first time I used it, I used the middle setting (three) and followed the instructions to pour the two cups of batter in the center and then spread it out.
Summary: I don't know how many of the negative reviewers have made waffles prior to a timer, but as my grandparents always told me, watch for the steam to stop and thy are cooked. It is as simple as that, ignore the beeper, watch the steam and voila, they are done. If you like them dark brown, put it on darker and watch for the steam to go bye bye, if you like them light brown put it on lighter and watch for the steam to go away...
Summary: I recently ordered this waffle iron for my family. The belgium waffle iron I had for years finally quit on me. After searching for a good waffle iron, and actually ordering one from another company (then sending it back), I found this one. Some of the reviews were'nt good on this one as I read them. They were wrong! My family loves this waffle iron. It cooks perfectly, and makes four large waffles (1 inch or thicker, depending on the amount of batter).
Summary: Don't buy this waffle maker. No matter what setting I use I get waffles that are part under cooked and part burnt. So over all the waffles taste terrible. It doesnt cook evenly. I expected better from Cuisinart. I would return it if I hadn't already thrown out the box. I sent a complaint into Cuisinart.
