Checklist For Waffle Irons

Different baking forms
  • Most waffle irons can be used to bake two or more waffles.
  • Depending on the device, rectangular waffles, heart-shaped waffles or bubble waffles can be prepared.
  • The baking grids differ in depth. For Belgian waffles, the baking pan must be equipped with thick grooves.
  • If the baking surface has a non-stick coating, low-fat baking is possible. The waffles do not stick and the device is easy to clean.
Temperature control
  • Waffle irons can have a fixed temperature with automatic shut-off or a temperature controller. The slide or rotary control is continuously adjustable, so you can decide on the degree of browning.
  • Whether the device is ready for operation, is heating up or has reached the baking temperature can be seen from the indicator lights. A traffic light system is usually used here.
  • The ready signal can be optical or acoustic.
Power
  • 600 to 800 watts are recommended. At 900 to 1200 wat ts, it is ensured that you can bake many waffles quickly one after the other.
Practical
  • The waffle iron should be easy to clean. There should be no crevices around the baking pan into which the batter can run.
  • Devices that can be rotated by 180° allow for an even distribution of the batter.
  • If there is a cord winder and the appliance can be stored vertically, this saves space.
  • Devices with interchangeable plates can also be used as sandwich toasters or contact grills.
Safety
  • A heat-insulated handle prevents burns.
  • Non-slip feet and overheat protectionensure safe use.

FAQ For Waffle Irons

What can you make in a waffle iron?

You can also use a waffle iron to heat wraps (folded with filling, for example) or sandwiches. Some waffle irons have interchangeable molds, so you don’t even have to misuse them. You can also make bacon or snacks like pizza buns in a waffle iron. Of course, the dishes then also have the familiar waffle pattern due to the shape.

How long do you have to bake waffles in the waffle iron?

As a rule, the waffle iron indicates whether the waffles are ready (e.g. sound, lamp). On average, the process takes between 2 and 5 minutes.

How to clean a waffle iron?

One should not use soap for cleaning a waffle iron, and likewise, one should not use dishwashing liquid or detergent. The best way is to wipe the warm iron with a damp cloth (be careful not to burn your fingers!). Afterwards you can put kitchen roll into the device and close it briefly. Some waffle irons have removable molds, so cleaning is especially easy. However, the same applies here: Better to avoid cleaning agents, otherwise residues can remain on it and / or the coating is attacked.

How hot does a waffle iron get?

The maximum temperature of a waffle iron depends on the model and manufacturer. Temperatures of 180 to 220 degrees are good.

How do you make waffles in a waffle iron?

First you need to make a waffle batter. The best way to do this is to look for a recipe on the Internet. Then you put about a ladle of batter into the heated waffle iron, close it and wait a few minutes. Usually, a light will come on when the waffle is ready. Repeat this process until your waffle batter is all done.

How long do waffles take in the waffle iron?

It depends on the wattage of the waffle iron. The more power, the faster the waffles are ready. Usually a waffle takes between 3 and 7 minutes.

Waffle iron which level?

If the temperature is individually adjustable, you should set the highest level for heating. Before you add the waffle batter, we advise you to choose the medium level to prevent burning.
