Waffle Iron recs

Wife has "strongly hinted" that she'd like a new waffle iron for Christmas. I've looked at different models and like one from Waring. It appears to be a professional grade appliance that would suit what she's looking for; price wise it's about $100.00.

Any suggestions from posters here would be appreciated, as my wife is the waffle cook at our house. Thanks.

  1. I think it is the same one that I have, and it is excellent. It is the one that you flip over once you pour the batter in. A really good knockoff of the professional ones used in restaurants, have used it frequently with excellent results. Don't think I paid quite as much for it, check out Sam's Club if they still have them in stock. Only problem is storage, because the waffle iron is a bit of an odd shape, but worth the incovenience for those yummy waffles!

      1. I've seen the waring pro at Costco for $50 and it is at Bed Beth and Beyond and Amazon for $80. Do you get those 20% off coupons from BB&B? The Waring Pro works great.

        1. I have a Villaware Uno Belgian Waffle Maker:

          Tou can get one fr between $50 and $60 and the results are great. The waffles are as good as most restaurants and the selling point for us was it's size - it's much easier to clean-up and store than previous waffle maker's we've had.

          1. I have the same question, only I've been looking at the Cuisinart Waffler (on sale for $80 right now at Macy's) and the Black & Decker G48TD Grill and Waffle Baker ($40 on Amazon). I've actually read better reviews of the cheaper Black & Decker than the pricier Cuisinart. Has anyone had experience with either of these? The person on whose wish list this is doesn't desire Belgian waffles (so the Waring that flips is likely out).
