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!

Waffles sticking to waring pro waffle maker no matter how much spray I apply. Help! thank you


I have had a bad experience with some corn oil spray. The oil (and corn syrup) built up into a crusty and sticky layer. I had to use oven cleaner to strip it back down to the non-stick surface. Now I just use soybean oil with a natural boar's hair pastry brush. (Synthetic will melt!) I heat the waffle maker at the last moment possible. Heat turns oil into varnish. I oil the surface just before the first cup of batter. I like to scrub oil with the brush into all the dry looking areas. If your batter has 1 Tbs (soybean) oil per waffle, that may be all you need for the entire batch. Turn off the heat promptly. I don't wash the oil out of the non-stick surface unless it builds up.

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

NEED OWNERS MANUAL


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..

Cleaning


Believe it or not but if it is a non-stick surface it can simply be brushed with cold water while the surface is still very hot. As long as you do this immediately after you remove the food. Try it with a pastry brush or similar.

Waffle mix spilled over entire waffle maker, inside and out


If it is a non-stick surface brushing cold water on with a pastry brush while it is still ver hot and immediately after removing the food will clean the surface easily. As for the outside, if it is a painted surface a non- abrasive cloth with warm water could possible clean it. I would not recommend pulling it apart.

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)
