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.
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 died.
Summary: The product arrived in a timely manner. It is a professional waffle maker and looks beautiful. There are recipes included and I tried the traditional Belgian waffle recipe. It was delicious! The waffle maker produced light fluffy waffles with a crispy exterior. I look forward to using this product over and over again. There is a recipe for pumpkin waffles that I am excited to try!!!!
Summary: This is by far the best waffle maker I have ever owned! I have used these before in those hotels that come with free breakfast and was surprised to see it for barely more than a home model. The waffle iron is easy to use and produces great waffles in record time. I love the adjustable temperature, the automatic timer with audible beep, and the drip tray. The unit rotates easily and the real stainless steel finish cleans up easily with just a sponge.
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. The kids can use it (under supervision) without a huge risk for burning themselves because the handle is long enough so it keeps their hands away from the round hot center. We all love that there is a temperature setting too.
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. I'm smiling.
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.
