Can I have a waffle like the ones at a hotel breakfast buffet?

The WMK300 has a great name, a great manufacturer, and a great design. The hidden truth is that it is only pretending to be a professional waffle maker under all of the stainless steel and teflon.
I love the waffles at major hotel chains. They are thick, crispy, sweet and very bad for my waistline. It takes a high wattage iron to create a crisp texture and even appearance. The Waring design is exactly like the professional ones in design.
Under the design, the electronics are clearly lacking durability and power. We purchased a WMK300 from Costco. The waffles were definitely soggier than those at the hotel. I checked the wattage and compared it to ChefsChoice iron that I had--what do you know? The wattage was lower. After about 10 uses, the iron stopped working. We exchanged it, but had the same thing happen a month later.
If you really want good waffles, go for the W150. It has the durability and power to recreate those hotel waffles.
One more thing--Carbon's Golden Malted mix is the one that they use at the hotel chains. You can buy it at Amazon.com.
