Bought the Waring double waffle maker for our house after bying our daughter the Cusinart double waffle maker. Waring is much lighter, does a better job of cooking to desired crispiness and making sure the waffle is cooked all the way through. We and different types of ingredients once the waffle batter is in the waffle maker. This is a must and the price can't be beat for what you get. Has adjustable heating levels, flips, doesn't take long to finish and the clean up is too easy. Performance Never a bad waffle Settings/Features Plenty of heat control Ease of Cleaning Once seasoned there is no clean up needed. Don't use spray oil products in a waffle maker, it gums them up and makes the waffles stick. Ease of Use Mix batter, open, pour batter, close and flip. Repeat for second side. Don't overfill. Durability Ours is 4 yrs old, has traveled with us on vacations and is used at least 3 times a month.
