Summary: I hesitated before buying this Cuisinart waffler only because of the people complaining of the hard-to-clean-up mess when the batter leaks. I have had several wafflers over the past 25 years and this one is as good as they get. Pour too much batter into ANY waffler and you have provided yourself extra work....this one makes great waffles and is not harder to clean than any other waffler I've had.
Summary: It was all it was described to be, with a few exception. The waffles were not like the waffles from our perevious maker. The batter ran out the front and sides. What a mess. The waffles also stuck when trying to remove them. We returned it to the seller and obtained one like our old one.
Summary: We've had this waffle maker for over a year and it's been a huge disappointment. It beeps when it thinks its ready, it beeps when it thinks it thinks the waffle is done (and it's not)... it beeps all the time! We've tried adjusting the temperature setting and a variety of recipes to eliminate "user error." Waffles cook unevenly - middle ones are crisp-ish and outside ones are soft. AGH! I frankly just want to toss it out the window.
the only redeeming quality is that it makes several

Summary: So, after seeing the stock photos of golden, beautiful waffles, and dreaming of actually being able to make waffles fast enough to feed my four kids at the same time, I purchased this. Wow.... Uber disappointment.... First, we all know, SIZE MATTERS! Six waffles in this waffle maker equal 2 regular waffles. Ok, disappointing, but better than my old one, and 4"x4" waffles are kinda cute, so, a we fired it up.
Summary: I usually make waffles EVERY Sunday and love this machine because of it's size. You do need to follow the directions and grease it lightly (Crisco) before using for the first time and I usually lightly grease it again before using the next time. Also, I make the batter fairly thin and don't overfill it --the 2 cups called for is too much in my opinion.
I use these at my bed & breakfast and I love them!

Summary: I need to crank-out good waffles, fast. I looked at many waffle makers and I read many reviews. I hesitated to order these because so many people talked about how the batter oozed out and made a mess but I ordered 2 machines. I found that these machines bake a great waffle. I like the setting of "3" (1 - 6 are the options). The waffles were slightly brown and slightly crisp.
Summary: Let me say first that I am a Cuisinart fan. Their small appliances seem to work better and last longer than other brands I have bought. Pros Cooks waffles very fast. Less than 2 minutes at the setting I am using. Handy if you are feeding a crowd. Cooks very uniformly. Waffle is very uniform Cons There is a lip that runs around the bottom of the unit that creates a small crack like opening between the unit and the base.
Summary: The design of this waffle maker is terrible. The space is too small between the slice/waffle sections so instead of flowing evenly throughout the maker, the batter explodes out the sides, leaving holes in the waffle and a disgusting mess outside. To avoid the overflow, you have to put way to little batter in and pour it so slowly and carefully that it starts overcooking on the bottom before you even get the top closed.

Summary: I'll be honest I read the reviews on amazon before i bought this waffle maker and followed the recommendations and I love this waffle maker. I put the setting to a "3" and pour the batter pretty much in the middle of the iron, then give it a gentle push down to spread the batter evenly. Don't worry about overflow on the sides, let the heat either dry it or cook it, it easily comes off when you're done cooking.
Summary: We read many reviews before buying this waffle maker, and we have to say that most of bad reviews are inaccurate. The handle is not too small, it's just the right size, and there is little chance that you'll burn yourself unless you are careless. There is a trick to dispersing the batter so that it doesn't leak out, and if it does leak out in first few pours before you get the hang of it, let it bake on so it's easier to clean later.
