I read several reviews on Amazon about this Presto Belgian Waffle Maker and even watched a You Tube video review, all of which raved about this product, especially for the money. You can definitely spend more for a similar looking flip style professional or commercial grade unit but I strongly doubt you will get a better waffle maker for the money. This one is nicely made, has a solid feel, is simple to use, and produces a perfect waffle every time, if you follow instructions. I had never made a waffle before, and using one of the gourmet Golden Waffle batter mixes, my waffles came out perfectly cooked every time. Once the light signaled me that the unit was hot and ready to go, I merely opened the unit, poured the batter in the center of the grid and watched it naturally flow to fill-in the edges. Once it reached the edge, I closed the unit, flipped it, and set the attached independent timer to 3 minutes, the instruction's recommended time for most mixes. Ding! 3 minutes later, it signaled me to open the unit and with a gentle nudge of my butter knife, the perfect waffle popped right out, clean and easy. You're suppose to pre-treat the grid before first use by brushing on some vegetable oil, to ensure stick free operaton, and it worked perfectly. I would do this periodically to keep it stick free, but certainly not needed every time you use it. When done making waffles for the day, let it cool, then wipe it down with a paper towel before storing. You can lock the unit in the upright position so it has a small footprint for space saving storage in your cupboard. I would definitely recommend this unit to waffle lovers everywhere.
