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.

    To the "Guest" from 2-13-08 who was/is nervous about the directions previously posted, they were typed exactly as written in the manual for the WM-4 waffle maker. I will elaborate on the light for that particular model to say that



    Step 1: Plug in and close the cover of the waffle maker to begin it's preheating. When light turns off, it is ready for the batter to be added.



    Step 2: Open the waffle maker, add the batter (here, again, the directions on the manufacturer's recipe only says "scant 1/2 cup of batter".



    Step 3: Close the waffle maker and secure the latch on the handle. The light will turn on again because the batter will cool the waffle maker off and require it to start heating up again.



    Step 4: When the light on the waffle maker turns off, the waffle is done.



    To Renie on March 15, hope you're not waiting for anyone to send you a recipe book. This is not the manufacturer's request site. Suggest that you print the recipes included by us herein.



    Enjoy your waffles!!!



    Step 4: WHEN THE LIGHT

HOW TO USE
1. Always preheat the Belgian Waffle Maker with the Lid closed. The Indicator
Light will go on as soon as the unit is plugged into a 120V AC outlet. When
the unit has reached the correct cooking temperature, the Indicator Light will
go off.
2. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the center of the Waffle Plates. The Indicator
Light will go on.
3. Close the lid. IMPORTANT: Do not lock the Handle Latch during
cooking.
Locking the Handle Latch will prevent the waffles from rising.
4. Bake waffles for approximately 3 minutes. Do not open the Waffle Maker
during the first minute of cooking. The waffles are ready when the Indicator
Light goes off or when there is no more steam escaping.
5. Once the waffles are cooked, carefully remove them, making sure never to
touch the cooking surface with sharp, pointy or metal objects. This could
damage the non-stick surface. To remove waffles, use plastic or wood
utensils.
6. Disconnect the plug from the wall outlet when not in use.

Finally found my user's manual for the Salton Belgian Waffle Maker model no WM8BEL. The basic waffle recipe is the same as the one posted earlier on this site. It also adds tips such as: For Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Waffles:
All recipes work out equally well with skim milk
Leave out egg yolks altogether. All leavening properties come from the beaten egg whites.
Use liquid vegetable oils, like canola, corn or sunflower, instead of butter.

For Higher Fiber Waffles:
Substitute 1/2 cup or more of whole wheat flour for white flour.
Substitute 1/2 cup of wheat or oat bran for white flour.

For Sugarless Waffles:
Substitute 1 Tablespoon of thawed all-natural white grape or apple juice, from concentrate, for each teaspoon of sugar. If adding more than 1 Tablespoon of juice from concentrate, add a little less milk.

Traditional Waffle Recipe
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
3 eggs, separated
pinch of salt
twist of lemon

Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add egg yolks and milk to dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Stir 1/2 of the egg whites into the batter and then fold in the remaining egg whites and stir until blended. Add butter and twist of lemon, and mix until smooth. Pour scant 1/3 cup of batter on the heated waffle mold. Makes about 12-18 waffles.

Crisp Waffles

1 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
3 3/4 cups flour
4 eggs, separated
1 tsp rum or rum extract
few drops of vanilla extract

Sift flour and sugar together in a bowl. Add egg yolks and water to dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Stir 1/2 of the egg whites into the batter, and then fold in the remaining egg whites and stir until well blended. Add butter, rum, and vanilla extracts, and mix until smooth. Pour scant 1/3 cup of batter on the heated waffle mold. Makes 12-18 waffles.

Shortbread Waffles

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
4 eggs
twist of lemon

Sift flour and sugar together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until fluffy. Add eggs to flour and sugar mix, and beat together thoroughly. Add butter and twist of lemon, and mix until smooth. Pour scant 1/3 cup of batter on the heated waffle mold. Makes about 12-18 waffles.

I'll post this and put the last 3 recipes on a separate posting. Hope this helps all the waffle-lovers out there!

No need to fret, dear Guest. The machine does indeed come with a manual; it's just that many of us have lost it over time. As to the terrifying heat of the thing, use those sticking-out parts called "handles" and you will be perfectly safe.

There is surely a typo in the first recipe of this thread. One-half tablespoon of butter makes a limp waffle. I use THREE tablespoons.

Posted on Dec 28, 2008

Are you saying when people buy these Salton waffle makers there is no book? seems like it. we aren't exactly mind readers you know. I mean, how are we supposed to know: put the light on, then the light is off and then on again -- in what order. I'd like to know too all I know is that damn machine is really HOT I'm actually afraid of it, maybe it's going to blow up -- made in China well, it makes me nervous

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.

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.
