I am so surprised by the negative reviews of this product. We’ve had this waffler for a year now and have used it A LOT. I’d estimate 75 times- usually once or twice a week. We’ve never had a problem with sticking and the waffler is going strong. The waffles turn out great, every time.
One thing to consider, waffles require you to use oil in the batter. It’s what gives them the nice crispy golden brown outside, and I imagine it helps with the sticking too. Now, I’ve never encountered a waffle recipe that doesn’t call for oil, but it makes me wonder if those who have problem with sticking are simply using pancake batter???
We tried other wafflers with our regular batter recipe and the results were awful- heavy and dense. This waffler makes a nice light waffle. The selector really works to get the desired done-ness, it’s a great feature and we’ve found the results to be very reliable.
In short, we think this is a great product. Our experience with other wafflers indicates they’re not all created equal, and this one is quite a good model. We like ours so much we’ve completely stopped making pancakes!amazon.com
