Summary: For those that have complained that they wished this made thicker waffles, I say, go buy a belgian waffle iron. This one makes great tradtion waffles. I grew up with my mom making tradtional waffles several times a weak (I look forward to one day inheriting that 40 year old waffle iron that still makes great waffles). I have been wanting a quality Waffle Iron for awhile.
Summary: I was looking for a traditional waffle iron with non stick grates. I love this unit because it makes 6 waffles at a time. The only drawback is that you have to be really careful about how much batter you use so it doesn't run over on the sides. It cooks evenly, cleans easily (although I wish the grates were removeable), but it doesn't get the waffles as crispy as I would like.
Summary: I like the look of this unit. The heating/browning element is very even. Temperature guide in the booklet is accurate. I wish the waffle sections were a little deeper. It does clean up well. I wish the manufacturer did not put the easy peel off label on top on the unit, it leaves an imprint of the label and it does not come off. I'm ticky like that (:-).
Summary: At first, I was skeptical. How would a 6 iron waffle maker benefit us? You see, we have family breakfast every week and I've begged for waffles, but we only have a 2 iron waffle maker, which is slow and tedious. I've missed out on many waffles! This is nearly perfect! Now I have waffles about once a month- and it makes 6 at a time! I will admit, though, that I have not mastered the waffle pouring technique. It's either too little batter or WAY too much!
Summary: I am happy with this product. It is very hard to find a waffle maker that makes thin waffles. The machine works great. After the initial oiling of the plates I have found it unnessessary to oil(I don't use spray). It takes a few minutes to warm up, but once warm it cooks quickly. My only complaint is with the directions. Don't ever put 2 cups of batter in the macine or you will have a huge mess, especially if you use one of their recipes.
Summary: This is a traditional depth waffle iron, not the Belgian depth, which we prefer. It works great as noted by numerous reviewers, so nothing wrong with how it works. You just need to make sure you figure how much batter to add without spilling. The problem is the bottom lip around the entire bottom of the unit overlaps on the outside of the metal sides. So if you overfill, the matter runs inside the lip, and you cannot get it out.
Summary: Great waffle iron! Love it! Used about 1 and 1/2 cups batter and it cooked them really fast. Used the #4 setting and they were done in just a couple of minutes. Not sure why people are griping about getting burned on the sides of the handle. ???? I kept touching it to see if it was hot. It never got past barely warm to the touch and I cooked 4 rounds of waffles. So anyway, props to Cuisinart for a great waffle iron that makes 6 waffles fast.
Summary: I received the WAF-4B (four slice) waffle iron as a gift. One of our kids knocked it off the counter and the handle snapped off. Since it was our fault, Cuisinart said they wouldn't take it back (understandably) and they didn't have parts to replace the handle. So I went online and saw this WAF-6, thinking more is better since we have a big family. I didn't realize until after receiving it that the 'B' in WAF-4B must stand for Belgian and there is no 'B' in WAF-6.
Summary: I bought this to replace an aging and recently broken unit & it works great. My first batch did overflow, but I found that if I spread the batter out in each of the 6 areas, they cooked evenly & there was no mess. This thing does get extremely HOT! Be sure to keep it back away from the counter edges & keep a pot holder handy. The beeping does come in handy if you are busy making other breakfast items at the same time, so you don't have to hover over your waffles.
