Summary: Bought this waffler a couple weeks ago and was very excited to finally get one as this is our family's first waffler. Followed the instructions, throwing out the first waffle and have used this now twice. For some reason I cannot get my waffles to come out 'crisp' even though the setting is on the absolute highest (7).
Summary: Seen this on the Fine Living Network and was very impressed with it. I immediately searched for it on-line, and purchased it from Amazon. I can't think of anything that I dislike about it. It's an awesome gadget and I couldn't imagine making waffles with anything else. Love it!
Summary: This waffler changed my life. How? you ask. Well for starters I can make my own waffles now. Generally speaking, a waffler is a great purchase. Having and becoming a waffler gives you the freedom to pursue waffles of all sorts. Not just your breakfast variety!! Specifically, this waffler is great. It isn't as boss as the one I remember from the university dining hall but for it's size and price, it is a mean machine. The waff settings offer plenty of range.
Summary: I bought Model V2002 in Feb 2010 and have no idea how the V2004 differs. This is a quality mostly metal product that makes a great Belgian waffle. Feels very solid. It seems to me the rotating types have more parts and are therefore more likely to fall apart and there is not any evidence that flipping waffles makes them taste better anyway albeit the Villa instruction manual says to serve them upside down.
Summary: not sure about some of the reviews i read but this works great for us! one thing i do recommend is using a non-stick spray. otherwise, it gets a little messy. the first time you use it, it will over flow because most likely you will need to play around with the amount you put in but soon enough you will master it so there is no spill! it's not flimsy whatsoever, which is one of the things i feared. all the heat settings work great!
Summary: Kind of pricey, but it works really well and the waffles are incredible. I'm not sure if I'd ever eaten a Belgian waffle before. They're incredibly delicious compared to even the best homemade flat-square waffles. We had a cheap flat-square waffle maker which seems like a sad little toy compared to the VillaWare Belgian waffle maker. I couldn't believe how fast the waffles are baked in this thing, it doesn't seem possible.
Summary: This waffle maker makes a very good waffle, but I had thought from the look of it that it was the one recommended by Alton Brown on his show good eats. While it looks identical from the outside, and fits all the criteria given on the show, it's a belgian waffle maker and the one from good eats is not.
Summary: This little machine just works. It heats quickly, takes just a minute or so to cook waffles, and cooks very evenly! It's a real looker, too. It has a power light, and the "ready" light notifies you (along with a loud beep) that your waffle has been cooked to perfection to one of the 7 heat settings. I like crispy waffles, so I usually set mine to 6 or 7. They turn out perfect. For truly crispy waffles, let the waffles cool for a little while on a rack. It cleans easily.
Summary: I have used the waffle maker several times, and I have been very happy with the results. The waffles are cooked consistently to my taste. The alarm that notifies you that the waffle maker is pre-heated, and when the waffle is ready works perfectly. There is no on and off switch, so you just have to unplug it. One thing I did not like was the slider that controls browning and crispiness was a bit flimsy. Since my last review, I bought another waffle iron for my parents.
Summary: I simply love this waffle maker. I had my old one for 9 years before it died on me. It was time to find a new one, so I did my homework. I looked for the higher rated ones and better reviews, but I also took into consideration that my husband likes thick belgian style waffles. I'm very glad I purchased this waffle maker. It takes the guess work out of timing, as it beeps at you when it is done.
