I experimented with this to make me and the family some waffle mixes and it works well with all of my experiments. Made jelly waffles, made peanut butter jelly waffles, made waffle cones (roll really quick before it dries), made fresh strawberries and berry waffles...as you can see we are a waffle family :) It is also pretty easy to clean and not so heavy on my part. Also can easily be stored because it is not bulky. I had other brands before that were not so well known but I found those didn't really cook the center of the waffles that well. I knew brand names would be slightly expensive but the product is amazing.
