Out of Stock - Item #164023
Gift wrap is available for this item.
This item was purchased as a gift. We've had one for some years and really like the idea of making waffles without another hard to clean electric gadget.
Often, when we have guests we'll serve waffles and more than once it has led to someone searching for a waffler like ours. It seems they're not that easy to find.
This year someone on our Christmas list had been unsuccessfully looking for the waffler. It couldn't have turned out better--gift wrapped and shipped directly from Cooking.com!
Nordic Ware Changes
I have used two of the Nordic Ware waffle irons for over 20 years and have not been able to find a good replacement. I considered getting electric irons but none of them seem to come with a descent recommendation from users.
I just purchased two more Nordic Ware irons to replace my well worn older ones. They are pretty much the same except for one very big change. My original irons had a temperature gauge where the handle meets the actual iron - the new ones do not. The gauge lets you know the temperature of the irons and when they were ready for cooking your waffle. Now I will have to guess when they are ready. This may seem insignificant to those who have not used the iron but it is easy to overheat the irons and create a smokey atmosphere in your kitchen when they do overheat and the non-stick spray burns. I always use nonstick spray to avoid the waffle sticking.
I still highly recommend the irons but am very disappointed that this feature has been omitted.
Grand Opening ...
... To the world of Belgian waffles. Waffler comes complete with instructions and recipes. I would not worry about using this product, unless you lack common sense. (If you do not think about what you are doing, you can even have problems with electric waffle irons.) *** An interesting gift, I should think. It is fun to experiment with new recipes to craft the ultimate waffle. (You can still go with Aunt Jemima if you must.) *** Should you fail, you can always blame in on this old fashioned cooker. In any event, it is always a pleasure to eat your results. After all, nothing could be worse than frozen waffles, or more boring than always making them the same way.7 of 12 users found this helpful.

Just takes a little getting used to..........
This is a great product...it is so much more versatile then an electric waffler- it allows you to make waffles even if you do not have electricity- say on top of the woodstove, camping, etc.
The product works really well and the instructions are very thorough. We love the belgian waffle recipe....the waffles turn out amazing.
Your first use will be your learning experience...but after that you will be set!
be careful heating
This waffler turns out great waffles - tender on the inside, crispy on the outside- but it is a little difficult the first time figuring out the settings you need to use on the stove. I had the heat set too high, and burned the first waffle; it was then very difficult to clean, despite the use of cooking spray. But, it did come clean eventually and setting the temperature to medium and heating for the prescribed times worked well. As one other review said - use medium heat!! After that first mistake, all the rest of the waffles were good. I'm thinking this will be good to take to the shore for our beach vacation - easy to pack (unlike an electric waffler) and easy to use with whatever stove is in the beach house we rent.6 of 7 users found this helpful.
