I love this little waffle iron. It is FAST! It does a great job making nice crispy or soft waffles - your choice; but, the floppy little temperature control needs re-engineering. Mine finally broke off (after only 5 uses!), but I was able to fish out the remaining part of the control tab and stick a paper clip through a little hole in it, so now I wont have to worry about that happening again. This waffle iron does a really GREAT JOB. I always use a spray-on cooking oil, so have not had any sticking problems. I'm going to buy another one to give my daughter who has seven kids.
