Plug it in, and wait for light to go off..

When light is off, pour (aprox) 1/4 cup batter on each of the 2 (of the 4) waffle panels on the bottom surface. Close lid; then, per manual, wait about 90 seconds. The light may flicker on/off while baking but disregard. You may experiment with different times by observing "steam" from coming out of baking area.
Remove waffles with a plastic spatula (as knives may scratch the non stick coating)

When cleaning, power unit off.. Do not immerse unit in water. Wipe down with a soapy/damp cloth.

I tried using non stick spray and it seemed to make them "soggy"; it also required up to 2 mins (used a "sand timer") then flipped waffles, then another 2mins..

I have a pre owned wm-4. No owner's manual. Can the plates be removed for cleaning?


These instructions are taken from a WM14 waffle maker, maybe they will work for you. It doesn't say anything about removing the plates:

"Wipe Cooking Plates with absorbent paper
towel or a soft cloth. Although the Cooking Plates are coated
with a non-stick coating, some batter or ingredients may still adhere
to the Waffle Maker. To remove, simply pour a little cooking oil onto
the baked-on food. Allow to stand for 5 to 10 minutes. This should
soften the food and make it easy to remove with absorbent paper
towel or a soft cloth. If the preceding measure fails to remove the
food residue, we suggest wiping the Cooking Plates with a slightly
dampened cloth and a little non-abrasive detergent."

Cleaning your waffle iron WPLT4

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.

How do you remove the plates for cleaning?


I looked for you model by using Salton WM4 and found nothing. Is there a better model number?

Closest match was Russell Hobbs
RHBW4 and RHBW4CAN

This unit is also made by Salton

I checked several Salton user manuals and none of them had removable plates. They all stated this in the use and care guide:

Cleaning

To keep your Waffle Maker operating properly, clean regularly.

1. Unplug the Waffle Maker and allow it to cool completely before cleaning.

2. Never immerse the waffle maker in water or any other liquid.

3. Wipe the exterior with a soft, damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.

4. To remove any remaining batter on the Cooking Plates, wipe with a soft, damp cloth or absorbent paper towel. Dry thoroughly.

5. Do not use steel wool, scouring pads, or abrasive cleaners, as they will damage the finish.

Does the salton waffle maker have teflon in it?


It very well may, did the box or manual say? If not and even if it did you will still need to either spay or brush with butter to keep waffles from sticking, that many surfaces with all those corners and ditches something will stick everytime unless you lightly coat with non stick something. let me know if this helps goofballlovers
