Not much to add to the other positive reviews I have seen in various places on the Internet for the Calphalon No Peek Waffle Maker. I looked at a bunch of reviews and user ratings, weighed the pros and cons, and after comparison with other waffle makers, this looked like the best option for us. We have only used it a few times since we just got it, but so far, it has worked flawlessly and performs as advertised.
One minor thing I should point out is that in all the photos and descriptions that I had seen, including on the product box, I noted that the temperature control's lowest setting is labeled OFF, but it is labeled STOP on the one that we received. I telephoned Calphalon's customer service dept. to ask whether this indicated that we might have somehow received a discontinued model, a prototype, or perhaps even a knock-off -- but they assured me that it was merely the result of a limited number of units on which the factory had mistakenly labeled the OFF setting as STOP.
Final summary: heats quickly, cooks evenly, and non-stick surface releases waffles easily. If you are careful to not overfill it, there is no mess and it cleans up easily. We are quite pleased with it.
