This waffle make was a great kitchen add for my entire family. It heats up quickly and cooks the waffle fast and evenly. Just a squirt of spray butter or cooking spay on both sides and fill bottom side with batter about 3/4 level and close, flip and in about 2 minutes it's fluffy and golden brown. Convient for just 1 waffle or waffles for the entire family. Quick clean up w a warm soapy cloth while still warm.
