Rated 5 out of 5 by Blane407 Best Belgian Waffle maker on the market today!
If you like to make Belgian waffles when you stay at hotels for you or the kids when on vacation, then this is the waffle maker for you! This waffle maker will let you make two at a time. The manual is well written. While I used a prepared Belgian Waffle mix, the included recipes should be no problem to create. When I bought this at the I was warned not to use a spray coating since it will ruin the finish. Cleanup is a breeze; let the appliance cool and wipe out with a damp rag or paper towel. This is, far the best engineered waffle maker on the market today and is well worth the Kitcheneing an ouaid name as well as being an outstanding value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by quita Makes awesome waffles every time!
It's hard not to make tasty waffles with this maker. Waffle maker for dummies that taste delicious every single time. I was a bit skeptical about purchasing because the price was a bit much, but I'm so glad I did. I love that it's extremely sturdy and clean up is easy. You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatCM Best home waffle baker--bar none!!!!
We love the waffles this baker makes so much we purchased a second baker for our country house!!! As with KitchenAid's fantastic stand mixers; this waffle baker is heavy and exceptionally sturdy. Nothing remotely flimsy about it!!!!!! With two units we are all set up for large family holiday breakfasts that are guaranteed to please with one big plus--Mom gets to eat along with everyone else :-)
This waffle baker cooks 2 round waffles to perfection at the same time. The self timer prevents over or under cooking. For the first 5 years we have had our original baker, never had a waffle stick to the grid. Super easy to use--no hassle cleanup!!! Baring the unforeseen this will be the last waffle baker you'll ever need to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyingMonkeyAl Awesome Product
I had an issue with the first unit I purchased and called Kitchenaid immediately. They shipped me a new one via Fed Ex in 2 days and paid to ship the defective one back - very little hassle.
I have owned this product for a year. It makes perfect waffles every time. The digital timer is a great help to make crispy, thick, tasty waffles whether plain or filled with add-ins (requires more cooking time). The two cooking chambers certainly speeds up the process. The unit has a light and sound indicator to identify when the iron reaches the proper cooking temperature. However, I found the analog indicator on top of the unit to be a better indicator of when the iron was ready. When it is hot enough, the waffles almost fall out. If you fill the iron before the unit is hot enough, the waffles stick and require work to get them out.
The price was steep compared to other waffle irons, but if you are serious about your waffles, buy this - you will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidC This is the best waffle maker I have ever purchased!
The are many advantages to this waffle maker:
Waffles are perfectly browned. Waffles come out easily after browning.
The outer brushed stainless steel 'shells' stay cool to the touch.
The controls are clear and easy to use.
It beeps multiple times when the timer counts down and the display color becomes red. It then counts up indicating time since timer went to zero. Great!
I like that the base is heavy. It is solidly built and stays in place. The 'clamshells' are easy to open and to spin from top to bottom.
I have found that cleanup is easy if you put in too much batter. After cooking breakfast, let it cool and wipe down with a wet cloth. If necessary, use a toothpick at the griddle edge. It does take about an hour to cool.
Since this unit retains heat so well, you can immediately pour in the next waffle without having to wait for it to heat up. Yes, you can produce a lot of waffles in a short time. Breakfast duration went from 1.5hr to 30min. Fantastic!!!

by mcoutrier KitchenAid® Waffle Baker Works like a hotel Belgian Waffle Maker!
1. Easy to remove waffle
2. Easy to pour in batter
3. Easy to set timer
4. Cooks 2 waffles at once
1. Very big takes up entire counter space
2. Hard to find an under counter home
3. Hard to clean batter that falls in between the plate and the outer casing, tiny slit.
