I love hot fresh waffles in the morning (one of the best parts of staying at a hotel with free breakfast!), with this waffle maker you can bring that experience home. Makes fresh waffles with audible alarm for turning, never burns and works great! Just use simple waffle mix from the store and follow preparation directions. Performance Always performs, great fluffy waffles (makes me hungry just thinking about them). Settings/Features Easy to use rotating waffle maker, just pour - close - flip - open! It is that easy (as waffle makers should!) Ease of Cleaning The surface is easy non stick cleaning, ensure to spray non stick spray prior to pouring and cleaning is a breeze. Ease of Use Simple to use with audible alarms for flipping over. Ensure to measure the proper amount and adhere to all safety when using electric appliances. Durability Great waffle maker, have used it for countless Saturday mornings to pump out enough fresh waffles for a family of four and still runs as if we just purchased it!
