Looking for the best selling waffle maker, the Cuisinart classic round waffle maker is it. This model has been on the market for 10 years, so it has been popular for a long time. I have researched this one for you to try to find out what makes it so popular and also why some customers don’t like it.
It is only fair to give both the good and the bad to help decide if this Cuisinart model is the one best suited for you and your family. So if you are looking for a waffle maker, please read through the research I have found for you and then decide if this one is for you.
The very first thing you should consider is whether you like the classic thinner waffles or the thicker Belgian waffles. If you prefer the thicker Belgian waffles, you probably should read no further. This model is designed for the thinner classic waffles. There are other models that are designed to make the Belgian waffles. You can see some articles at the bottom of this page for some of those. My favorite is this Oster Flip waffle maker.
Now if you like the thinner waffles, then here are some other factors to consider. You can tell from the title and photo that this is a round waffle maker. This style allows for more even cooking than those of other shapes, so that is a big advantage for round waffle makers. For those that have had waffle from the Waffle House, they are the classic thinner kind.
Now to start listing the things people most liked about this Cuisinart waffle maker. People loved the lights that showed when it was ready to add the batter and then another one to show it was ready. This compared to the adjustable setting which allows you to determine the “color” of your waffles, how brown they are. Both of these help insure that there will be no surprises when you open the lid. Most people say they got perfect waffles every time.
OK, now if it is so wonderful, what do people not like about it. First it has a four star rating, so the vast majority of people love this waffle maker., many saying it was the best one. But there are some people who had complaints. I covered one, it doesn’t make the thick Belgian waffles.
Some complained that the waffle stuck to the nonstick surface. Usually this is a result of one of two things. There was no oil in the mixture or they didn’t spay the surfaces before operating. Nearly all nonstick surfaces need some help, this one is no different.
Some complained about a knob or switch breaking. This is an inexpensive small appliance, so care needs to be taken when cleaning or using. Unfortunately, it is human nature to blame something or someone when something happens. Some of the complaints were probably human error, while others may have been a poorly constructed appliance. Compared to the number of people who were happy, a small number complained of parts breaking. But it was a complaint I saw more than once and so I mentioned it.
