My kids absolutely adore waffles! I had been buying them in the frozen food section of the grocery store for several years. I decided that perhaps homemade waffles would taste better, could be made more nutritious, and might possibly work out to be a bit more frugal in the long run. We purchased the big Krups Waffle Chef that makes four waffles. That is ONE serving for this family that loves to eat! Fortunately, the four waffles cook in only four minutes, which allows me to make waffles for 5 people in a fairly short amount of time.
This model has a non stick interior which is easy to clean, and a Cool Touch handle which ensures no burnt fingers! It has the standard "ready" light like most wafflemakers to let you know when it is preheated and also when the waffle is cooked. There is also a latch on the unit which lets you store it in a space-saving upright position without the worry of it coming open.
I would recommend this model highly to anyone looking for form and function in a wafflemaker.
