My Family loves it more than I do now

Summary: I thought I would just get a little something for me being I used to be the only one in the home that ate waffles. Then I got this waffle Maker. Now the whole family suddenly loves waffles. Shipped & received on time and well packaged.
Summary: This waffle maker does a good job of cooking waffles. It is too small to feed a family without it taking forever to make enough waffles. It has a familiar problem with waffle makers, it is hard to clean off completely. Batter always drips down sides and in crevices and is next to impossible to clean completely. Overall it is a good product but not great.
Summary: I bought it and couldn't even make 1 batch of waffles. Even after letting it heat up for 45 minutes, and letting each waffle cook for 4 or 5 times the time the waffle maker told me to cook for, the waffles were doughy and only a tiny spot in the middle of the waffle was barely browned at all. I ended up having to take the barely cooked waffles and put them in the over to let them finish cooking.
Summary: I was very excited to find a waffle maker this inexpensive! It works very well for the price, though there are a few small issues. The amount of batter it says to use for each square is not enough. The corners don't fill out and the ridges don't raise with just 1/4 cup. I usually use a 1/4 cup scoop for each square and an additional scoop divided between them. However, if you use too much, the batter leaks out the sides, and it's somewhat hard to clean.
Summary: Hello! We got this waffle maker as a gift for my mother on her birthday. Unfortunately, it didn't work well and we decided to throw it out after two attempts and get her another one. The waffles don't bake well, the settings don't tell you when the waffle is done, and it leaks batter unnecessarily all over the counter! My husband and I make waffles at home on our waffle maker every week and know how to make a good waffle, but this iron doesn't perform.
Does the job and well made. (Until it was useless!)

Summary: Better construction then many, i.e. NOT flimsy. If you want them more crisp, just wait. Wait long enough and you will need a hatchet to cut them up. Operates just fine for my needs, like EVERY morning. Perhaps a little, just, uneven with the heat, but no bother for me. Update: I bought this item in May of '09 and have used it about once every day since then. Today (10-16-'10) it can not heat up and cook a waffle anymore.
