Waffle Makers Buying Guide

A waffle maker brings light, fluffy homemade (not frozen) waffles to the breakfast table. American-style waffle makers produce the traditional square, thin waffles. Belgian-style makers are generally round and have deeper cavities to produce thicker waffles with a light, crispy texture.

Types of Waffle Makers

Types of Waffle Makers

With basic ingredients and a dedicated waffle maker, you can get one of the best restaurant-style breakfast foods at home. It takes a special appliance to produce the crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside treats. With two common styles of waffles, thick Belgian-style or thin American-style, you need to decide which type is preferred in your household. With the addition of ingredients such pumpkin, buttermilk, or chocolate chips, you can create waffles of many flavors. Or top fresh waffles with whipped cream, fresh berries, and chopped nuts for a truly sumptuous experience.

Belgian

An authentic Belgian-type electric waffle maker creates waffles that are thick with deep grooves. Many waffle makers of this sort create one large round waffle or a large waffle that can be divided into two or four smaller waffles.

Standard

Thinner, American-style waffles come from an electric maker with shallow grooves. These makers typically produce four waffles at a time, so they’re perfect when cooking for larger groups.

Waffled Pancake Pans

These gridded pans that cook on the stovetop make pancakes that are textured like waffles. They are good option if storage is limited and you’d rather store a pan than an appliance.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before you purchase a waffle maker, think about the type of waffles you want to make, and then make the selection that best fits your needs. For plain waffles, a standard waffle maker is sufficient, but if you plan to experiment with recipes, it’s best to have a maker with temperature and brownness controls.

Depth

A waffle maker with a deep grid produces thick Belgian waffles. Flatter American-style waffles come from makers with shallow grids. Which one you choose is solely a matter of personal preference.

Shape

The shape of the maker determines the shape of the waffles. There are rectangular, square, and round makers. When choosing a shape, consider not only the waffles it will make, but also how easily the maker will store.

Novelty

Beyond the basic rectangular, square, and round waffles, some makers are designed to create other shapes, such as flowers, hearts, cartoon characters, and more.

Surface

A nonstick surface is crucial. Not only will the cooked waffles release easily from the grids, but cleaning the maker will also be hassle-free.

Easy flip

Most waffle makers have heating elements that cook the waffles on the top and the bottom at the same time. Some makers can be flipped halfway through cooking for more even doneness.

Indicator light

Because the outcome of the waffles depends on the heat of the waffle maker, it is important the maker have a light that indicates when it has heated to the proper temperature before adding the batter.

Temperature controls

If you plan on making specialty waffles such as buckwheat, oatmeal, or cornmeal, it is critical to have a maker with temperature and browning controls.
