Whether You're Sweet or Spooky, These $10 Mini Waffle Makers Are a Must-Have for Fall
‘Tis the season for pumpkin everything: Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes are back, I have my favorite pumpkin-scented candle burning, and I have weekend plans to mix up a batch of pumpkin-shaped waffles. As soon as I discovered pumpkin, spiderweb, and skull-shape miniature waffle makers, I knew I had to have them—and at just $10, I can justify the seasonal purchase.
The waffle makers are available from multiple online retailers, but the cheapest options are from Target at just $10. (It’s also available on Amazon for $15 with free shipping.) In addition to the low price point, the appliances measure 5 inches by 6.5 inches and weigh less than a pound, so it’s easy to store when pumpkin treats aren’t in season—although I fully intend to use mine year-round.
And, it looks like I’m not the only one who loves a seasonal-shaped breakfast treat: These waffle makers have more than 147,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. One five-star reviewer says, “It’s so easy to use, doesn’t burn, and the waffles always turn out great! Such a fun product for fall!”
So, whether you're cooking up a fall brunch for two or looking for fun Halloween food ideas, this is one kitchen appliance you'll want to add to your cupboard.
