Rated 5 out of 5 by iknowshopping Waffle maker with removable plates yey!
I have searched the internet, including all hardware, department stores and ebay. There isn't a waffle maker that has removable plates out there. This ones fits my bill. Also a plus the plates turn over for indoor grilling. Dishwasher safe.
This waffle maker makes 4 waffles at one time!! I wished I had this one when I was raising my children.
The price is superb. I would say it can't be beat cause there isn't any other to compare it with.
Black and Decker, come on girls this is great. I've done the shopping for you.
Nope not getting paid to say this.

The very first waffle I cooked in this waffle maker turned out to be perfect. Every one after that has been the same. Enough said. I'm very satisfied.
This also looks very classy and durable.

The Black & Decker 2 in 1 is working well. We made grill chesse sandwich and pancakes. Enjoying breakfast and lunch.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tnoma great product
We both really like this waffle iron. It does get hot on the outside but one just needs to pay attention to where you are putting your fingers. I would recommend this product but not to be used by children.

I grew up eating waffles and this is the type of waffle maker my mom used. My wife and I received a single waffle maker as a wedding gift 18 years ago. This single worked great. However, we purchased a larger waffle maker to save time in the mornings. Unfortunately this larger model, similar to this Black & Decker model always stuck...even though it was a non-stick surface. The results was the waffles ripped in half every time. We promptly returned it.
We were thus hesitant to buy a larger waffle maker like this Black & Decker model when our single waffle maker finally died last month after 18 years of almost daily use...it was a workhorse.
We have been very pleased with this Black & Decker model. While the heating element is circular the square waffles turn out perfectly cooked...and awesomely crunchy. As with anything used for cooking if you don't watch it you can over-cook and even burn your waffles. However, my wife is an expert and they turn out fantastic every time.
Well done Black & Decker!
Rated 5 out of 5 by snickersnicker Really great product if you use it properly
I love this waffle maker from the moment I purchased it, until they started sticking HORRIBLY. Since I had followed all the procedures as per the manual, I called Black & Decker. The told me that they now recommend that non-stick spray not be used on the plates, only oil applied with a brush or non-aerosol type spray. They did send me brand new plates free of charge, much to their credit. Now that I only use oil, it's working perfectly. I highly recommend this product, minus the manual. By the way, the waffles freeze very well so you don't have to be constantly making a batch. Just a tip!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheExNYer Well Worth It Even at Double The Cost
The evenly spread heat and the weight of the top of the grill upon the bread allows for making GREAT melted cheese sandwiches quickly. Great too for making 4 nice size pancakes at one time... Then when you are finished, it cleans beautifully. I'm extremely happy with the grill
Rated 5 out of 5 by SeabeemominSC Back for a second one
I am so glad they are still making this product. I got one about 8-10 years and have actually worn it out. The easiest part of this waffle iron is the clean up. Pop out the plates and right in the dishwasher. I used the waffle side most of the time, but the kids like the grill side for sandwichs or their latest flour tortilla concoction. Why spend $100.00 for a waffle iron or a grill when you can get both for 1/2 of that.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fwbear My new kitchen essential!
I purchased this product to replace my old waffle maker. I was looking for something with removeable plates for easier cleaning. The waffles come out perfectly on this. I read in one of the reviews that it made flat waffles, but I have not experienced this. I've actually watched the lid rise as the waffles are baking.
I did not really think I would use the grill plates, but they actually get used even more than the waffle plates (and my kids eat some waffles). My youngest son loves the pressed grilled cheese sandwiches I make with it. I have also placed frozen hamburger patties on it. They cook up perfectly. For the last minute, I lay the grill open flat so I can melt cheese over the top of the burger and lightly toast the buns on the other side. I have also made pancakes on it.
This product is used almost every day in my house, and I have no idea how I survived so long without it.

From someone who doesn't like belgian waffles and that's what popular out this this iron makes great old time waffles. What else can I ask for. Works great. Good value.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyPickyProgram Great product
This makes 4 old fashioned waffles or, by flipping the plates, can be used as a grill or for toasted sandwiches. The only improvement I might suggest is that it would be nice if it were possible to store it vertically without it falling open. I'm using a large rubber band to keep it together so it can be stored vertically. Otherwise, it's just great!

Cooks very evenly, no cold spots. Was top rated waffle iron according to Cooks Illustrated. I wasted my money on a cheaper brand that did not cook evenly.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tfemt The instructions call for coating the plates with vegetable oil before you use them. We did this about 6 times and finally used the spray on stuff. The directions say don't use the spray. The spray worked great and the waffles come out in one piece now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by esgt89 A Classic!
This unit was bought to replace one we got when married almost 25 years ago. Heat on one side was not working. Was surprised to see that this one is almost identical to our old faithful. Our old one was a different brand, but the new one is nearly an exact copy of it. Handles, and all looked the same. Only the temp knob was different!
Looks like a well built unit, comparable to those of years ago.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandpaWafflemaker Exellent waffle maker.
We love it because it makes four at a time and it is NOT a belgian waffle maker. This is the eighth waffle maker we have purchased over 47 years. The one that has lasted has been the Black and Decker. We make waffles every weekend and often have unexpected company to help us eat them. We buy syrup by the gallon. We wore out one Black and Decker and have another we are using. When our daughter asked for one for Christmas, we tried everywhere to buy her one but could not find one in any store or online. Very pleased when we received email from WALMART saying you had them back in stock. Ordered 2 right away and tried to buy at two different Walmart stores but they did not have any. Was excited when our order came in and we are using our new waffle iron and have a back up plus ordered one for my sister. Order came very quickly. Would and have recommended you to family and friends. Pleased that you emailed us even after we had forgotten we asked you to. Our family gives you 5 stars. Thanks!
Rated 4 out of 5 by RosiesNPosies A little disappointed
I purchased this product because it was recommended by America's Test Kitchen. I only wanted it for making waffles, not for the griddle portion. I had a mickey mouse waffle maker that I've used for 17 years that I passed on to my daughter...it made perfect waffles. What I liked about the black and decker waffle maker is that it makes 4 square waffles, about the size of a small piece of bread. This is perfect for the toaster if I want to freeze them for later. What I was disappointed in was that the back portion (near the hinge in the machine) gets considerably less toasted than the rest. The heating element is round, so it doesn't extend near the corners anyway, and I am told that heating elements generally aren't as hot near where they come out from the hinge. How hard would it be to make the heating element laid out in a way that would cover more of the unit (maybe in a couple of coils, like a burner on a stove, but more squared)???
Rated 5 out of 5 by ndlptr Does what it is supposed to do and does it well, replaces 42yr old GE, whose small appliace division was purchased by Black&Decker. Makes old fashioned as opposed to Belgian waffles. For us it's primary use is as a waffle iron.
Rated 5 out of 5 by greatpipes Great tasting waffles
It is a little larger than I would desire for just two people, but I sacrifice that to have removable plates. Wonderful to just wash in my dishpan, rinse, dry and replace. The waffle indents are good size to hold all the goodies I like to use.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beachmonkey Great waffle maker
This is just like the waffle maker your mom had when you were a kid!!!!! Just what I was looking for.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PriceDriven simple device that works well
Purchased this product in 1990. After 20 years one of the handles broke and could not be repaired. The new one is virtually the same with minor changes to the temperature control.
This is a very simple device which does the job I want: make grilled cheese sandwiches.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Notsatisfiedillegaltosell Disapointed!
Upon receipt I opened the Waffle Maker to verify that all components had been received, and it appeared that all parts were included. I sat the griddle aside and threw out the box and packing; however, last night when I removed the plates for cleaning I found that the chrome frame was bent, there was rust on the inside, and that there is what appears to be dried and burnt batter on one of the griddles, and lastly the protective plastic covering the controls was partially loosened. This has to be a returned item.
Rated 4 out of 5 by rongroup Makes good waffles if you use it correctly :)
To get good waffles with this product you need to LIGHTLY spray both surfaces with a vegetable oil before you turn the unit on. When you turn it on you have to set the temperature to the very highest setting and leave it there. I suggest while you are waiting for it warm up (till the light goes off) mix up your batter.
When you open the lid it will smoke from the hot oil - this is normal (open it over your exhaust fan). Pour in the batter and help it get to the four corners to get nice square waffles. Try adding pecans there great in waffles but avoid blueberries - they make it stick badly. Wait till the steam coming out the sides subsides (but not to stop completely) till you remove the waffle. With some practice you will get to recognize when to do this.
For the remaining waffles repeat the above procedure including the light oil spray each time. If you follow these steps you can bake the best waffles in town. Don't forget to heat up the maple syrup and soften the butter so it spreads easily. Enjoy
Rated 4 out of 5 by 128jmb Great Appliance
My old waffle maker was a great appliance and almost 50 years old. It just wouldn't brown waffles on both sides any longer and it wasn't worth trying to find parts. This new Black and Decker waffle iron is a great replacement. Hope it lasts 50 years also.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trizia I just bought this waffle iron, after searching for months for one with small holes, NOT a Belgian waffle iron. No local store had this in stock, but I found it online at WalMart and ordered it sent to my local store. I love it! I had read the reviews and noticed that several remarked there is no setting except "waffle" for waffles, but a closer look showed me that there is a colored line below that word which allows for darker or lighter settings. Another reviewer said there is no way to tell when the waffle is done, but the booklet says when the light goes off, the waffle is done. This is true. Also, when the steam stops, the waffle is done. The book does not say how much batter to add but I think common sense says, don't run it to the edge and then squish the top closed. I will be careful with the clips, which I understand are the only part not liked for durability. I plan to use this appliance mostly for waffles, and even tried for the first time to make some from scratch. Love 'em, especially with pecans.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LADYRC unable to use
I am sure I would have liked the waffle iron,but I did not use it because it was crooked. The waffles would have been lopsided since one leg was shorter than the orders and the waffle iron tilted. I did not want to use it, so I returned it. I would like to order another,but afraid it may be the same.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mommy202 Only one we found
Previously we had looked for a waffle iron that had removable plates and was also a grill -- for pancakes and grilled sandwiches, but couldn't find one. When our OLD waffle iron finally 'hit the dust' I looked again, and found this one right away! It is very pretty and shiny. The plates are about 1-1/2" smaller (both ways) than our old one, but that just takes getting used to. My only gripe is that the bottom plate doesn't always stay in place unless you slide it forward. The box that has the thermostat seems to come in contact with the waffle iron plate (when using the grill) and so it will sometimes pop out. Other than that we are enjoying using it!
Rated 3 out of 5 by LewAzar Nice unit for the price but the waffle irons are definitely NOT non-stick. Even with a coating of veg. oil, the batter still sticks to the grills
Rated 1 out of 5 by WhatIHavetoSay Don't buy this Product
I wanted this because I made waffles a lot. I was good at it. People would plan to come have breakfast at my house so they could have my waffles.
I had a cheap non-stick waffle maker that worked well, but because of how often I used it, I wanted a machine with removable plates so I could throw them in the dishwasher and make clean up easier. So I bought this product and it was horrible.
No matter what setting I used, or whether I primed the plates each time or not, the waffle would burn and stick to the plate and the inside would not cook. There was no amount of adjusting that would solve this problem.
I'd pour the same batter onto my cheap waffle maker, and have perfect waffles.
I contacted Black and Decker to complain and they charged me $7 to send me a new machine. Well, the new machine didn't work either. Same issues. When I reported the same problems again, they only offered to send me another one for another $7 - as if I did the same thing a 3rd time I would get different results.
I never tried the flat plate so I couldn't tell you anything about that.
If you want a machine to make waffles, please do yourself a favor and just buy one of the cheap non-stick ones without the removable plates - something that just does waffles. You'll be much happier and you'll actually be able to enjoy your waffles.
Also, unlike the cheap machines, the cover of this machine is metal and gets very hot. Not good if you have kids that want to help. You need potholders, because the tiny little handle on this machine isn't enough to protect your fingers. If you get one of the cheap machines with the plastic covers, you won't have this problem.
Rated 1 out of 5 by astra1357 DO NOT BUY
Top plate did not stay attached at all. Made one waffle with the unit, and the plate kept falling down when I lifted the lid. The reversible plates are way to heavy to be held by the flimsy clips built into the unit.
Looks nice and convenient, but the poor design makes it all but unusable. AVOID.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daeanarah Black & Decker 2 in 1 Waffle=Grill/Griddle
I have used Black & Decker's 2 in 1 Waffle-Griddle/Grill for over 25 years. My mom had one too while I was growing up.
I am now on my second one which I have had for over ten years. I feel that I am going to need a third one soon, as it gets a lot of usage.
stainless steel hard to keep shiny and new looking without having to polish it alot...
(I do have an original snackmaster, but keep going back to the Black & Decker Waffle-Pancake-griddle, etc. I even had one when I lived in College dorms. Many a time when we knew we missed breakfast its head to my room to make our own waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon...needless to say small fan, open windows even in window....hehehe)
The only bad part is a feature that I want that it doesn't have. And that is this:
You can't turn it on or off. The little dial goes from low, to high, with a slant just for waffles in between medium and high, no off switch.
Meaning that its on as soon as you plug it in whether or not you have adjusted the temperature.
Please Black & Decker if You make a new one like this, add an on/off button. Saves Electricity and potential fire hazards.
