Which do you think is the Best Waffle Iron?

And this is my first... DC looks great!

I am looking for a waffle iron - preferably the kind that flips over to coat both grids evenly. And with removable grids for thorough cleaning.

Any recommendations?

Hi RipVan! Welcome to DC. I can't help you on the waffle iron since I have one that I don't like. But someone will be along that can help you. Glad you're here!

ummm, ripvan, the last time you probably used a waffle iron, it needed to be heated in the fireplace.

welcome.

we have a regular ol' krups 4 section waffle maker. nothing fancy, and it works well for our occasional use. nothing is removable, though, which would be a nice feature.

RipVan - I have had a Waring iron for about 3 years now - use it 2-3 times a month and think it's great. Of course, I bought it when it was about twice the price it is now - figures. This one flips, has a temp control, drip plate, etc. only does one waffle at a time.

Check out the Cooks Illustrated website. I seem to remember them reviewing waffle irons - and they preferred a cheaper one.

I have a KA which I do like a lot. I saw them on sale at cooking.com recently.

How about breaking the norm and get a waffle iron that makes Mickey Mouse waffles. Or perhaps keyboard shaped waffles. Or circus animal waffles?

Hey, I resemble that remark.

Buck and I have had a Mickey Mouse waffle iron for years and love it. It never surprises me when he asks if we can have "Mickey" waffles.

Yep, I remember you and Buck talking about it in another thread! That's what gave me the idea to look it up. While searching for it, I saw the other two shapes as well. I have to admit, that Mickey Mouse Waffle looks really good!

Yes, Mickey waffles are great. I always eat the ears first, just like the chocolate bunny at Easter.
