I bought this based on the recommendations here, but have been unhappy with the results. The waffles it makes are pale, limp and chewy. Would love to know what I’m doing wrong.
It’s good for sandwiches though.
Waffle Pantry replied: The way your Liege waffles turn out can vary depending on recipe, storage, equipment, etc.? You may want to try our from-scratch recipe or Liege waffles mix if you haven't already done so. Please make sure not to bake cold though, as this will typically undercook and not have a desired outcome. Lastly, you want to make sure to set the Cuisinart iron to the griddle setting and bake at 375F for 5-6 minutes. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
I just got this last week and have been making many batches of liege waffles. I love the waffle iron and, as Waffle Pantry will tell you, their price is the best you will find. You get the Cuisinart Griddler (which comes w/ grill and griddle plates) AND a separate box with Belgian waffle plates (which other sites sell separately for about $40!). So - great deal. Also, the iron itself is very nicely made and the temperature (in 25 degree increments) is true to stated (I measured w/ separate thermometer). Shipment came quickly. Very satisfied. I'll be using this for a lot more than waffles.
Absolutely love this grill / griddle / waffle maker.
Amazingly clever design and will most likely end up being one of our most used kitchen appliances.
This is great. We are replacing an older similar model and this is exactly what we were looking for, plus way cheaper here than on other sites or even big box stores.
I LOVE my waffle maker! I've been making Belgian waffles for years (the kind with pearl sugar, not the kind with pancake batter and just cooked in a waffle iron with big squares), and my old waffle iron was such a pain to use. I decided to splurge and buy this one because I had read so many good things about it, and it was worth every penny! My waffles cooked better than ever before, and the clean up was super easy. My only regret is that I didn't just buy this one in the first place.
