You think your being funny, don't you?

Actually you are, that's besides the point.


I'm partial to my Griz.



In the '70s the Family bought two or three electric irons, some rather pricey, none worked that well.

I know, things have gotten better but you know how it is when your put off on something, ...

Yes, fire irons take allot more watching and care than the electrics, no silicone brain doing my thinking or tending chores, I think it's worth it.

Now I'm getting hungry again. LOL!

Mine is not that old, but it has certainly seen a lot of use over the years:

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.

Now I'm seriously envious of you. I would love to have that iron.

My ex-wife used to make waffles by pouring batter on the floor and stomping on it with hot sneakers. I, on the other hand, have a George Foreman 5 that makes excellent waffles, as long as you douse it liberally with cooking spray. No waffle will ever pop out of my toaster again.

I do take mine camping, and the temp gages works well enough to give me an idea of where I want it when I start cooking them.
Only thing is that unlike Warts it has plastic on the handle, gotta watch that around the ol campfire, LOL.
