All-Clad waffle maker?

I've had a cheapo Younkers special waffle maker that no longer cooks evenly, takes forever and cannot make a crispy waffle so it's time to upgrade.

For a sub $150 waffle maker, what do you reccomend? I've looked at the All-Clad, and have heard good things about them, but I know a lot of All-Clad is overpriced.

Thanks for any help!

  1. Hi, Winny,

    Not an expert on electric waffle makers in particular, but as a general rule of thumb:

    The All-Clad company made its reputation on plain old cooking pots and pans. The "kitchen electrics" are newer additions. Why not investigate a company that has "kitchen electrics" as a longstanding core product? Cuisinart or Oster or something like that. Not that I'm pushing those brands. I'm just saying that if I were considering a new appliance, I would look at appliance brands. All-Clad is a well-recognized company--but in a completely different area.

    Just my two cents.

    1. I would say no. Waring is a much better brand for waffle maker.

        Interesting. I've never heard if this brand but reviews look great for their double Belgium maker.
