If you are picking for the perfect breakfast for a lazy Sunday, waffles probably make it to the top of the list. But why settle for those cardboard toaster waffles when you can have fresh waffles straight from a piping hot waffle iron? You probably think that it is too messy or too expensive to make yourself fresh waffles. And you might be right—unless you are looking at one of these amazing waffle irons:
Proctor-Silex 26500y Durable Belgian Waffle Baker
One of the most affordable waffle irons around, this non-stick and compact waffle iron packs an amazing value. It makes beautiful, deep wells in your waffle, perfect for filling with fruit or jam. The design prevents batter from spilling into hard-to-clean nooks and crannies, making clean-up a breeze. Taken care of properly, this waffle can last you for years to come. The lid and handle can really heat up while cooking, so take caution when lifting the lid to remove your waffle!
Black & Decker Flip Waffle Maker
If you are looking for a waffle iron that is sure to impress, this waffle maker by Black & Decker is a great choice. It has the fancy flipping technology you see in hotels, and makes a large waffle in the matter of minutes. The nonstick surface heats evenly, baking up a perfectly crispy waffle every time. It is easy to overfill, though, so use the drip pan if you want to avoid a post-breakfast mess.
Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker
A lot of people live in small apartments and have little room in their cupboards, so they can’t really justify filling their limited space with an appliance they will use once a week at best. If you are one of those people, then you can stop making excuses: Cuisinart has your back. They designed this incredible waffle iron so it can stand on its side, meaning you only need a few inches of space in your cabinet if you want to enjoy fresh waffles on a weekly basis.
Hamilton Beach 26030 Belgian Waffle Maker
To call this waffle iron “another flip iron” would be wrong. Hamilton Beach took all of the great things about flip irons, and then made it easier to clean. The waffle grids are completely removable and dishwasher safe, meaning you don’t have to waste a single minute wiping this down with a wet cloth after you are done.
National Presto Ind 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker
Compact with flip technology and incredibly deep grooves, the National Presto Waffle Maker seems to really have it all. The flipping technology that they use is actually quite unique, as it rests the waffle maker on the counter rather than a flimsy hinge. It consistently heats your waffle to the perfect crispness, and is one of the only waffle irons out there with an actual audible timer. That means no burning your waffle if you are distracted by the bacon!
