I had the Black & Decker Sweet Hearts Waffle Maker for a number of years before I accidentally broke it while moving. To be honest, I first purchased it because of the cute heart shapes. I really liked using it for special occasions because the heart shapes made things more unique and interesting. This is a simple little appliance to use. You simply allow it to heat up and pour your batter in. It took me a few attempts to get the proper amount of batter figured out. The waffles come out cooked evenly and taste yummy! I am not sure if they still sell this maker, but if they do, I highly recommend it. Performance Cooks waffles perfectly and evenly. Settings/Features There are not many settings or features, which I like. It makes using this little appliance simple. Ease of Cleaning There is a nonstick coating which makes cleaning easy. I did notice over the years that the coating began to come off which made the waffles stick a little more. Ease of Use You simply allow it to heat up then pour your batter in, Durability I had this waffle maker for many years but broke it while I was moving. It was very durable but not when it falls from a 2nd story ledge! I bet it would still be working fine if I had not of dropped it.
