Pros:Makes awesome waffles which are tasty and economical.
Cons:Wish the timer beeped halfway through the cycle to remind me to flip.
The Bottom Line: I would highly recommend this waffle maker to any fellow waffle addicts like myself. This is especially good if you are normally in a hurry like I am.
I am a waffle addict, but never owned my own waffle maker. I always bought those tasteless frozen waffles from the grocery store which were convenient, but pretty much a waste of money. I happened to get the Presto Flip Side Waffle Maker as a gift one day, and got very excited to try it out. I read the instructions carefully, made up the batter easily, made my first waffle and was discouraged. It all got stuck inside the maker and I had to pick it all out from between the grooves, piece by piece. Being a true addict of waffles, I did not give up. I instead decided to spray cooking spray over both waffle grills and tried again. This time the waffles came out beautifully! They were tasty and smelled wonderful too. They did not stick even the slightest bit. The book recommends not spraying the grills each time, but I spray them before every waffle that I make. I have since been creative adding bananas, blueberries, and strawberries to the mix. They all have turned out scrumptious. I usually set my timer to between three to four minutes and flip the machine to the opposite side halfway through. This has worked out perfectly for me. I also make more than I think we will eat, then put them in a freezer bag for the upcoming week. They pop into the toaster perfectly and taste much better than store bought.
