First, I love kitchen gadgets so the second I saw the Villa Ware V2009 Uno Petite Flower Waffle Maker, I had to purchase it. To make it even better, it was dirt cheap on clearance at my grocery store. I took it home not expecting much and was amazed at how great it was. It heats up fast and the lights up to let you know it is ready. I put some of my waffle mix in, turn it over and wait for a short time and it is done. The waffles are crispy on the outside and yet still soft inside. Of course the best part is that the shapes are so cute . My son and daughter have to try one of each shape each breakfast. This is now our favorite way to eat a big Sunday breakfast. I definitely recommend and would purchase this again even at full price.
