Summary: This is a really nice waffle maker. I read quite a few reviews about different waffle makers and am quite happy with my choice. It warms up quickly and cooks the waffles evenly. That was my main concern as our old waffle maker seemed to take forever to heat up.
Not a Belgian (by American standards) Waffle Maker At All!

Summary: This is absolutely NOT an American "Belgian Waffle Maker." The box may be half Belgian (or german, I can't tell), but it's not what you typically look for in a "belgian waffle." The waffle is maybe 1/8 of an inch tall, 4 waffles at once, and very rubbery. It was AWFUL!!!! I would never buy this again. I am extremely disappointed in what I got.
Summary: I was looking for a waffle maker that was larger than the old round one we had. After researching the reviews, I decided on this Proctor-Silex, and after one year, I am still happy with the purchase. As with all waffle makers, if you pour in too much batter, it will leak out the sides and cause a mess!
Summary: I got this to make waffles like my gram did when I was a kid. Box arrived very quickly, but the plates were greasy as if someone had already sprayed Pam all over it. So gross. I cleaned it up and it works alright. Doesn't have the "done" indicator light the listing mentioned when I purchased it, though.
Summary: Poor design. There are no temperature settings (just plug in for ON, unplug for OFF) and it doesn't heat evenly -- if you leave the batter in long enough to cook the borders, the center "round" (presumably the area covered by the heating element) is overcooked. Unfortunately, the 2nd time I used it was Sunday -- DAY 31 since purchase!!! -- so I can no longer return it. I would if I could.
