For the most part we love the waffle iron, it is much faster and easier to cook these small waffles than to stand over a frying pan slowly frying pancakes .. Cooking waffles stretches one egg , an organic mix and a small amount of oil for both of us. Bananas, nuts,etc., can be incorporated into a purchased organic mix.
Occasionally the waffle sticks to the iron when I have not done it too carefully but for the most part it is pretty easy to clean. I use a folded paper towel to apply olive oil to the grill instead of a spray since it's healthier and cheaper to use.
I look forward to the warm weather when we can have waffles with vanilla frozen yogurt and strawberry slices on top--yummy.
