    I too have the same problem and also was fixing waffles for my grandchildren. Maybe we should stop cooking for the kids. Ha Ha! I doubt if Waring will do any good with service, so, I'm going to fill the screw holes with epoxy and re-insert the screws. If that doesn't work, I'll use a little larger course threaded screws. I guess the junk we get from overseas is our own fault. BUY AMERICAN.

Cleaning your waffle iron WPLT4


c.gif c.gif





Let me start by telling you WHAT NOT TO DO.
  1. Never clean a waffle maker while it's still hot. Let it cool completely.

  2. Never dunk your entire waffle maker in water.

  3. Never use scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive cleansers.

  4. Never use a knife or pointed object to clean your waffle maker(I've actually seen that advised on less reputable sites).

When it comes to cleaning a waffle maker, your first source of information should always be the owner's manual. There are many different kinds of waffle makers, so your buddy Mr Breakfast will gladly defer his expertise to the company that makes your waffle maker.





What I can speak about is my own favorite waffle iron. It's a modern electric waffle iron with non-stick and non-removable baking plates. That's the same kind you have? Oh good. It looks like you came to the right guy.

Cleaning the baking plates:
  1. Remove any small puddles of oil with a dry paper towel.

  2. Brush away any crumbs with a soft-bristled kitchen brush or old toothbrush.

  3. Remove any batter stuck to the iron with a rubber spatula.

  4. To remove really-stuck-on batter, douse the baked-on batter with cooking oil. Wait 5 minutes for the batter to soften. Dab the batter off with a paper towel or cloth.

  5. To prevent staining and long-term oil build up, wipe down the baking plates with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  6. Make sure the waffle iron is completely dry before storing.

To clean the exterior, wipe down the housing and handle with a damp cloth.


Keeping it clean:

There are a couple things to remember to make sure our kind of waffle maker stays clean.

  1. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, you should never coat the baking plates of a non-stick waffle iron with cooking spray. Over time that will give you a gummy build up that will turn your waffle maker to junk. Today, when a waffle maker makes the claim that it's non-stick, they really mean it. The only oil you need is the oil in the recipe. If your waffles are sticking, it's your batter that needs more oil, not your waffle maker.

  2. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, don't use soap to clean your baking plates. Soap can be the enemy of a non-stick surface. Oil - on the other hand - can be a great friend. It creates a thin layer that helps maintain the non-stick surface. Soap will completely obliterate that layer of friendly oil. Harsh soaps can deteriorate the manufacturer's non-stick surface over time.

When using a toastmaster waffled maker do you have to use an oil or butter pan spray?


Hi,

Normally you mix oil in with the batter, but this doesn't keep the waffles from sticking. Even non-stick waffle makers stick some. Use a light spray of Pam (or similar) on the bottom tray, add your batter than spray the top pan and close. This gives you your best shot at a perfect waffle!
Enjoy!

Is there a way to turn the sound off? When we plug it in the high pitched sound makes our dog shake and squeal. If we can turn this off we'll have to get rid of it (the waffler not the dog!)


I struggle with the same thing, it's like an apocalypse alarm for my poor dog. I have covered with duct tape which muffles, but does not come close to silencing this culinary menace. May delve further and take the waffle maker apart to find the alarm source. It's a great waffle maker otherwise, we just don't enjoy them as much due to the noise and affect on the dog.

I bought a Krups Household Type Waffle Maker at a thrift store. It looks new, but doesn't have any instructions with it on how much batter to use or how to clean it. I got a recipe online and it was great...


I think this is why people make pancakes. =) Cleaning the waffle iron is a real pain. My waffle maker looks exactly like the one you have pictured. Mine also came with no instructions because its my fiance's. As far as how much batter to use, you should use a ladle and through trial and error figure out how much is the best amount. I would guesstimate approximately 1/4 c. For cleaning the overspill, from what I have read online, everyone says to unplug the iron (obviously) and wait until the waffle iron has completely cooled before cleaning. I have cleaned the back of the unit (where the coils are, which unfortunately got flooded with batter the first time) with a damp kitchen brush, damp sponge, and paper towels. Its messy and time consuming to clean up. You can get in the coils better with an old toothbrush or a very small bottle cleaner (like the kind you would buy to clean cake decorator tips). I just use warm water to remove the batter/gunk. I use a sponge (damp with warm water) to clean the baking plates. I towel dry everything after its clean, and clean the outside with a little windex so it stays nice and shiny. Good luck! I also recommend making lots of extra waffles and freezing them, so you can avoid as much waffle clean-up as possible. ;) You can heat them up in the toaster like Eggos. They stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Need Manual


I found only one other reference to cleaning this model on the internet and that TWB2 did not have detachable plates. You should not immerse this. I generally do not clean the "Teflon" surface of waffle makers - leave it oily. I do clean the outside with a damp soapy sponge.
My experience with waffle irons is that you should lightly oil the inside (spreading everywhere with a boars hair brush) just before adding your first waffle batter. Even non-stick surfaces need a little oil.
>>My Waffle Tips: The batter should contain more egg and oil than a pancake batter does. If your waffles are too chewy, you mixed the batter too much and made gluten. The egg whites should be beat separately to stiff peaks and folded gently into the batter. The batter should be quickly spread across the lower griddle, filling every void. Pay attention to the amount of steam coming out of the griddle and the smell - this correlates to the moisture content of the insides and the crispness of the waffle outside.<<

My waffle maker continues to stick even after I brush butter or oil all over the grill. I'm about ready to throw the thing away! Is there anyway to get a replacement?


Depending on how long you have had it, if you still have the receipt or not you might be able to return it to the store you got it at, espically if you got it at a target, k-mart, wal-mart ect, and switch it out for the same one, or sometimes even get your money back.

Also are u making sure your waffel iron is getting nice and hot? if its not at max temp when u poor in the batter it will stick. (most have a light on the outside that will light up, when its hot enough)

Seasoning Waffle Baker and Grill


FIrst, make sure there is some kind of fat or oil in the waffle batter recipe. This is the biggest difference between waffle and pancake batter. Go to Sams or a restaurant supply store and get a spray product like waffle-off. Spray lightly aftter every few waffles. Use lightly as heavy spray can cause build up. If you can't find this product use one of the PAM type sprays for BBQ grills or maybe an olive oil based product. Regular Pam sprays build up faster as they are not really designed for this. Don't try to wash the grids between uses as they need to keep the oil coating. (Like using a cast iron skillet) They will turn a dark brown. Just brush off crumbs or use a damp rag. Make sure the waffles are completely cooked as when not completely cooked they will seperate and be very difficult to remove. They are cooked when the steam stops coming from the sides. This will take 3 - 6 minutes. Don't preheat with the iron open or allow it to stand open for any longer than necessary. (It can overheat)

Nordic ware Belgiam Waffler maker


This is how I use the nordic ware...

1.Heat pan on medium heat on one side until temp gauge is in the middle. Dont turn pan at all when pre-heating
2. Open pan and coat bottom with a little butter.
3. Flip pan over and add butter to bottom side that has no butter.
4. Add batter quickly so butter doent burn. Add semi-thick batter in pan and only let batter run so there is about 1 inch of space left on the edge.(This space will fill with batter when you close the cover)
5. Temperature gauge should stay near the middle at all times.
6. Do not open the pan to check the batter waffle color or your crispy waffle will turn soft
7. Let waffle cook on first side until the steam that comes out from the side slows down to about half of the amount of steam that came out when battle was first put in. (Should be about 2 minutes)
8. Turn waffle pan over and DON’T open the pan.(you haven’t opened the pan once to look)

9. Let cook until steam reduces (Takes about 2 minutes)
10. Keep an eye on the temp gauge
11.Remember the first waffle always takes longer to cook than the second and third waffle.
12. If you have the urge to open the pan. Open the cover slowly. If it doesn’t open up easily then it is still rare and wait one minute to open. If you need to look, you should only open the pan after you turned it over. Once you open the pan, leave it open. If you close it the cripy top will turn soft.
13. Remember trial and error

Salton Belgium Waffle Maker


I, too, was searching for that wonderful Belgian Waffle recipe and thought, no problem, I'll just look on-line. I couldn't believe it when Salton didn't have it posted on their site (if they did, I couldn't find it) and was taken to your requests for the recipe. So, I went the whole mile, or should I say traveled over mountains of files, and couldn't believe that my filing system still works after all of these years, the Salton Belgian Waffle Maker & Recipe Guide for Model No. WM-4 was right where it was supposed to be. (And my husband, and prior bosses I should add, have laughed at how I save and file everything. I'm glad I can share this with you all now...

Basic Belgian Waffle Recipe
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg, separated
1/2 tbl butter, melted
-Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl
-Add egg yolk and milk to the dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly.
-Beat egg white until stiff, stir 1/4 into batter to lighten it and then gently fold in the remaining egg white.
-Pour a scant 1/2 cup of batter onto the heated waffle mold. The light should be off. When batter is added, the light will go on. When the light goes off again, the waffle is done.
-Makes about 6 waffles.

Chocolate Waffles ("which make great ice cream sandwiches," says the recipe book.)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 egg, separated
2 Tbl melted butter
1 1/2 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1 1/2 ounces)
3/4 tsp vanilla
-Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl
-Add milk, egg yolk, and vanilla to dry ingredients and beat until well blended.
-Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave or double boiler. Stir chocolate mixture into batter.
-Beat egg white until stiff, stir 1/4 into the batter to lighten it and then gently fold in the remaining egg white.
-Pour a scant 1/2 cup of batter onto the heated heart waffle mold. (Hmm, the WM-4 isn't shaped into a heart??? Oh well, moving onward...)
-Makes about 6 waffles

Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon or topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.
