Waffle Iron Needs Improvement in Design
I chose this product after reading some of the reviews online. I was interested in a very basic model that had some type of visual signal when the waffle was done. This part works very consistently.
My real disappointment was that the batter always has a tendency to run over the edge on every waffle I attempted. Most of the time, the batter would run over the front edge and into the recessed area behind the temperature control lever. Cleaning the mess took ten or fifteen minutes, about five times as long as cooking the waffle. I even thickened the mix but that didn't help matters too much. Having made waffles for nearly ten years, I couldn't imagine that my receipe had any great impact on the problem. (My previous waffle iron (made in the early 60's) never had this problem because it was constructed with a drip channel that diverted any excess batter into a different area). After the third and fourth day with similar results, I completely replaced the list of ingredients with a simple solution that eliminated the mess, and provided me with a reason to keep the iron. I simply put French toast on the wafflemaker and now I have breakfast.
