A waffle maker also known as a waffle iron is a small electric counter appliance used for producing waffles. Waffles are a very common breakfast choice that has a sweet dessert flavour. It’s similar to a breakfast pancake, but are lighter and sweeter. A benefit of a waffle maker is that your food is prepared a lot healthier than the traditional pan and oil method.

The waffle maker allows for a restaurant finish, with an amazing silhouette and grid-like pattern design that makes them crunchy and irresistible. Traditionally the waffle maker is known for breakfast meals, but today you are bound to find these on menus under the dessert section served with a delicious ice-cream or cream, yummy.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Waffle Maker

The first thing that you need to take into consideration is the size of the waffles you would like to prepare for your guest, as well as the size of the waffle maker. As for the size of the waffles themselves, many waffle makers seem to have standardized sizes, but you can find larger (and smaller) waffle moulds out there on different appliances.

You’ll also need to see how many waffles you waffle iron makes at a time. This is especially important if you have a medium to large-sized family. Making waffles for breakfast can be done very easily for one or two people, but if you have 4 or more people in your family, you probably want to look for a waffle iron that makes at least four waffles at once, and possibly even more. The only difference in making a few different waffles a once is that you’ll sometimes have to cut them when you are done.

Although people might swear by their favourite diner at a restaurant to create the best-tasting waffles, with the newest range of waffle makers you can create something just as good or better at home. The world is your oyster when you consider the many creative ways to present a waffle, for example, served with a topping ice-cream with the syrup dripping on the plate, topped with chocolate sprinkles and sealed with some strawberries.
