Summary: Not as solid as my previous stainless version (this one has a red base). Perhaps all the newer models are equally cheap feeling. The mechanism seems sturdy and fine, however. Have used about 10 times.. timer, heat adjustment, light, switch - all work fine.
Summary: I used to be rather dismissive of cooking sprays in general, but there is nothing better than a generic cooking spray for oiling the plates before use. Also, spray again if the iron sits hot for any length of time without a waffle in process.
Pros: This iron overall just makes great waffles. It heats up fast, cooks fast, times itself, and has an audible alert and light to tell you when they're ready. The inversion mechanism helps spread the batter to cook more evenly. With this iron and the two-waffle version, I do a waffle and eggs brunch ...
Cons: After several years, the plastic cracked where the iron supports meet the base, probably due to the strain from the iron flipping back and forth and sideways pressure on the supports while in storage. This was easily reinforced with a couple of angle brackets and some adhesive, and the iron is no...
Not durable, makes great waffles for only a short time...

Summary: I purchased this item three years ago and used religiously every weekend for Breakfast and also for other "I'm hungry for a yummy waffle" moments, just because I love waffles. It made fantastic waffles for almost three years, and then in the middle of making waffles for the holidays, my waffle maker...
Summary: I've used this waffle iron more than 30 times. It has never failed and the waffles taste just as good today and when we first got it a year ago. The kids love it too. It is easy to use & clean. I especially like the handle because it is long.
Summary: As soon as I received it I went online and searched for all kinds of waffle recipes. I now have fund trying all kinds of different recipes. I am now looking into buying a book for waffle recipes and ideas. So much fun...and delicious. The maker is very easy to use and waffles are done in no time.
Summary: This iron made great waffles but the arm that supports the front of the waffle iron broke in less than 6 months. I was very disappointed. I handle all my cooking equipment very carefully and feel the construction was not very good.
Summary: We were thrilled with the machine the first few times because the waffles were fantastic. After the forth use, this oil like substance started dripping out of the appliance. After the fifth use, it was completely useless. Cheap product.
Summary: I REALLY wanted to like this waffle maker! I read all the reviews and despite a few reviews regarding the piece that breaks, I gave it a change. I shouldn't have.
I just received this waffle maker yesterday. I made my first batch of waffles and I was IN LOVE.
