The worst part of this machine is figuring out how much to use! It is seriously easy to use with the red and green lights. It is simple to clean and simple to operate. The best feature for me is that it can stand up so it takes up less space on the countertop. Prepare the waffle batter, ladel it onto the warm iron and cook until the light tells you it is done. Ypu can even make special flavor waffles (mix the special ingredients into the batter before pouring on iron). Special waffles (those with extra ingredients) take a bit longer and make cleanup a bit longer because you have to was the iron with a sponge on towel instead of just wiping it down. I found that I needed to respray the iron after a few sets of waffles so they started to stick. No need to flip this machine over to fully cook the waffles. A great easy to use machine that quickly makes lits of wafflrs, even though it only does two at a time.
