Waffle Makers

I had never made waffles before until I purchased a very inexpensive waffle maker at a thrift store. The waffle maker I purchased was a Cuisinart  waffle maker which isn’t an inexpensive brand by any means. I bought it at a thrift store for $2.00, so from my point of view it was inexpensive. Now the person who originally bought the waffle maker probably spent good money on it and from the looks of it, never used it. My grandkids had been hounding me for some time to make them waffles but before I went out and bought a good one, I wanted to see if they were actually going to like and eat them.

Belgium Waffle Maker

After trying out the ? waffle maker and the fact that my grand-kids have fallen in love with homemade waffles, good-bye frozen waffles, I decided to buy a Cuisinart Belgium Waffle Maker. I like the bigger or thicker waffles that a Belgium waffle maker produces. The thicker waffles also freeze really well, which I also like. They make fantastic Chocolate Chip Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches which are not only my grandson’s favorite but also mine.
