I've had this waffle maker for about 8 years and it still works great. Cooks evenly and has a light that tells me what the waffles are ready. Performance Always works well and cooks evenly. Never had a problem with it in the 8 years I've had it. Settings/Features Has a light that tells me what it is ready to pour the batter in and when the waffles are done and ready to be taken out. Really helps out so you don' have to keep opening the lid and ruining the waffles. Ease of Cleaning It is easy to clean with a sponge, some hot water and soap after it has cooled. Allowing it to air dry is best and it is easy to do. Ease of Use Very using to and easy to know when it is ready to use and when the waffles are ready to come out. Durability I've had this waffle maker for about 8 years and it still works well and cooks the waffles evenly.
