Vintage Sunbeam Waffle Maker and grill

I picked up this vintage Sunbeam waffle maker and grill (model WB-K) at a rummage sale for a few bucks. It's still in great condition, plates are clean and the exterior is fairly shiny. I cleaned it up a bit, but am overall quite happy with the find. The grills are reversible and can be used for waffles or paninis/meats/sandwiches.

When I picked it up, I thought the grills were well seasoned cast iron. It turns out that it's actually teflon coated cast aluminum. I'm not too keen on the teflon coating, but am hoping that I'll find some cast iron grills at some other rummage sale in the near future that I can swap out.

I'm wondering if any of you might have experience using this wafflemaker? Are there any tips that you would recommend?
