Cuisinart WAF-F40 Double Flip Belgian Waffle Maker

Cuisinart WAF-F40 Double Belgian Flip Waffle Maker

by Cuisinart

Easy-to-Handle rotary feature for even baking on top and bottom

The Cuisinart WAF-F40 is a quality waffle maker, but our pick for the best waffle maker is not quite as good for waffles. It produces waffles that are generally acceptable, but they lack the crispiness of our top pick, and they don't cook quite as well. The WAF-F40's waffles are bigger and cook up faster than our pick, but there's a slight crunchiness to them that isn't present in our pick. The WAF-F40 also produces waffles that are darker than our pick, but that's a matter of taste. The WAF-F40 has two ready lights to let you know when the waffles are ready, but they're not as bright as our pick's. The Cuisinart WAF-F40's controls are easy to use, and it has 5 browning settings, which makes this waffle maker a great option if you're just starting out.

The Flip Belgian Waffle Maker uses very little power, and it has a nonstick grid that makes it easy to clean. The best feature of the Flip Belgian Waffle Maker, though, is its nonstick coating, which makes it easy to remove waffles from the maker.

KITIDEA Belgian Waffle Maker

Our top pick, the KITIDEA Belgian Waffle Maker, has all the features we look for in waffle makers, including a large, deep grid that makes light and fluffy waffles every time, a removable drip tray so waffle batter spills don't end up on the countertop, and 6 Browning Control, which lets you choose how dark you want your waffles. The cooking surface is non-stick, so the waffle maker releases waffles easily and cleans quickly, and the grids are dishwasher-safe, so cleanup is a snap. We chose this model because its 1600W power is typical of waffle makers in this price range, and its 6 Browning Control allows you to control how brown your waffles are. The waffle maker is compact, portable, and fairly lightweight, and it cooks 8 waffles at a time, making it great for parties and gatherings. The waffle maker's 6 Browning Control feature lets you create light or dark waffles, and it comes with two waffle plates, so you can cook both Belgian and American-style waffles. We also like that it comes with two extra waffle plates, so you can keep one in the cabinet to make waffles for the next person.

Chefman Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker

by Chefman

PERFECT WAFFLES: Extra thick non-stick waffle plates will help you easily remove your waffles without damaging them to create deliciously perfect restaurant-style waffles every time; allowing you to take on even more fruit, ice cream, syrup and endless delicious toppings. The 180-degree rotating design spreads the batter evenly throughout the iron, so you end up with fluffy, perfectly cooked Belgian waffles with a crispy golden exterior.

The Chefman Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker is a good choice for basic waffle-making needs, as long as you're not looking for special features. It's simple to use, stores easily, and cooks evenly, and it incorporates a number of useful features, such as a digital timer, an adjustable browning control, and a removable drip tray. The waffle maker has a nonstick coating, so cleanup is quick and easy, and the plates are removable and dishwasher-safe. The rotating design eliminates the need to lift the unit each time you want to serve the waffles. The waffles are thick and fluffy, with a crispy exterior. The rotating design also ensures that the batter fully coats the plates for optimal cooking. The waffle maker's temperature adjustment dial is sensitive, so you can adjust it to make waffles as dark as you like them. The waffle maker cooks waffles fast, and it's also quiet, so it won't disturb guests. The appliance's design is a bit awkward, however, because the waffle maker sits directly on the counter, which makes it difficult to slide it out of the cabinet. The rotating design also makes it difficult to clean, since the rotating plates make a mess when removing them from the unit.

Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker,Black

Presto 03510 Ceramic Belgian FlipSide Waffle Maker

by Presto

Bakes extra-thick Belgian waffles in minutes

The Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is one of the cheapest waffle makers we tested, and its 3.5-inch-wide cooking surface is one of the smaller options in this roundup. But it's surprisingly easy to use and makes delicious waffles. The FlipSide maker has a nonstick coating on the cooking surface, so cleanup is a breeze. The non stick coating also eliminates the need to pre-heat the waffle maker, which is a huge plus for busy mornings. The waffles are cooked thoroughly, and the plates are cooled quickly, so you can add them to the toaster or put them directly on plates for serving. The only small downside is that the waffles brown a little too quickly, which can make the waffles taste slightly burned. The FlipSide waffle maker is compact enough to fit in most kitchen cabinets, and it's sturdy enough to withstand daily use. It's also dishwasher-safe, so cleanup is quick and easy.

Gourmia GWM448 Rotating Waffle Maker - 180° Rotation - Variable browning control - Indicator lights - Easy to clean - Stainless steel

Gourmia GWM448 Rotating Waffle Maker

by Gourmia

EASY CLEAN: PFOA-free nonstick coating and removable drip tray make breakfast cleanup quick and easy.

The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker has all the features you want in a waffle maker, and it cooks waffles that taste great, but it's a bit pricey. A cheaper model, the Cuisinart WAC450HS, has fewer bells and whistles, but it produces waffles that are just as tasty. Like its competitor, the Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker has 180 rotating plates, which cook your waffles in about 3 minutes. The Cuisinart also has settings that allow you to choose how crispy you want your waffles, but the Gourmia's browning control allows you to make waffles from light to dark, while the Cuisinart's browning control only allows light to dark. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker also has indicator lights to let you know when your waffles are ready and when they've finished cooking. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker has a cool touch handle, making it safer for your fingers and countertops. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker is easy to clean, and it has a nonstick coating to make cleanup a breeze. Like the Cuisinart, the Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker has removable plates, so it's easy to remove the waffles when you're done cooking. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker is heavier than the Cuisinart, but it cooks waffles just as fast, so it doesn't make much difference. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker is quieter than the Cuisinart, and the Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker's waffle plates are thicker than the Cuisinart's, so it produces slightly bigger waffles. The Gourmia Rotating Waffle Maker produces slightly darker waffles than the Cuisinart, but it's a bit faster, so it's up to you which model you prefer.
