I love this waffle maker! It’s like the ones our mom used use haha too, not those cheesy seeming plastic things they’re making now, it’s made with great quality and it doesn’t feel cheap. It’s also got a lot of excellent features that make my life easier.
I’ll mention right now that this is a VERY hot little waffle maker. They make the plastic ones to be “cool touch…so you can imagine they don’t get that hot. . I’ll trade the cool touch feature for the sturdier design of this versatile machine. I’m being careful and haven’t burned myself yet. But it’s something to consider if you’d like your children making waffles.
