    I've got the Breville waffle pro ( was about $220 from Myer I think a few year ago ) it's by far the best one I've seen ( my SIL has a cheap breville one and it's horrid)
    It's quick ( 4 big waffles ready in 4 mins- just walk away and wait for it to beep and perfect waffles every time ) it's easy to clean and you don't just have to do waffles I've done frittatas and brownies in it as well!
    I usually have a waffle buffet set up for Easter and Xmas breakfasts or I've taken it to holiday houses as well

    This thread is making me want to buy a waffle maker.
    @Elijahs Mum can you please share your waffle recipe.

    I have the cuisinart griddler with interchangeable plates - including the waffle plates.

    The plates are removeable and go straight in the dishwasher. It's the reason I purchased this one as I have had others and honestly they're a pain to clean!

    Costco currently has the griddler for $85 then you'd need to buy the waffle plates. I paid $180 for my griddler + $50 for the plates 2 years ago.

    It's super easy to use. As Elijahs mum said you can do other things like brownies and eggs. I've also done hashbrowns (homemade) which were super yummy.

    I make double batches of waffles and freeze the excess - pop them straight in the toaster to reheat during the week.

    Edit - it does 4 large waffles at a time.

    I think I want all these machines to help with school snacks. So I'm looking for cooking appliances to make it easy

    Never had a waffle? Of the horror 😜 lol

    Waffles look like this:

    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1469608774.869137.jpg

    They can also be round or even heart shaped but the indentations are consistent. Good for holding syrup, chocolate etc... Mind you savoury waffles are also lovely.

    There are dozens of recipes online and most waffle irons come with a booklet. There are different types eg Belgian waffles which are very sweet. I make DS2 a waffle that very simple (and healthy) with just wholemeal flour, milk, butter, eggs, baking powder (as raising agent), and cinnamon. So no sugar at all.

    As I said on my earlier post they freeze well and reheat in the toaster so make a great mid week breakfast.
