Now if I could just stop overfilling the darn thing....... I need one with a light for that.
Wow! Ain't it the truth! I have that same Cuisenart Waffle maker. It makes very good waffles, if you have a good batter. The last batch I made, my wife complained because they were too light and crispy. Go figure.
But I've used the thing 3 times since Christmas. Two of those times, I overfilled the appliance and had to clean up such a mess, I mean, uncooked waffle batter all over the breakfast bar, and partially cooked batter funning down all four sides of the appliance
Also, I haven't quite figured out the correct heat setting for perfect waffles yet. I undercooked one batch and the waffles sepperated into 2 halves, one on the top grids, and one on the bottom grids. The waffles weren't completely set in the middle. Another batch came out so dark that they were almost past the point of no reture (inedible). But I finally came out with successful waffles, but didn't think to write down the setting I used. Also, to satisfy my wife, I will have to make a heavier batter (heavy sigh).
Still, I wish I could find a waffle maker with multiple grids. I've owned and wore out such a device, and at one time, saw one in K-Mart, but didn't buy it. Now, I wish I had. I can't find them locally, and now, can't justify the cost of purchasing one if I did find it.
I also have a belgian Waffle maker. The recipe isn't complicated, just time consuming as it uses a yeast-risen batter with folded-in egg-whites. But those waffles are well worth the extra time and effort as they are soooooo good.
Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. I hope your waffle maker does all you want it to.
