What is the best electric waffle iron to make waffles at home?


In my opinion, the best waffle irons are the vintage ones made here in the USA. They are more durable and more reliable than anything made in China today. Look up the older Sunbeam, Toastmaster, Kenmore and G.E. models and you can usually find either round, square or rectangular versions, as well as models with and without non-stick coatings. The years from late 50's to the late 70's are best.

How do I replace the coil on my WMB-4 waffle maker?


It's most likely not the coil that's the problem, probably a thermal fuse. Unfortunately, these Made in China waffle makers do not last and are basically disposable after a few short years. Better off replacing it with a good quality, vintage 'Made in USA' Sunbeam waffle iron. You can find good deals online on eBay and Amazon.

Plug gets hot on my vintage sunbeam CG waffle maker


You can replace the power cord on these models easy enough, as the cord is actually attached to a small black, plastic box that can be opened to replace the cord. You can find cords at home improvement or hardware stores. Before going this route, make sure the wall outlet you are plugging the waffle iron into, is properly grounded. You can check this by using a small outlet testing tool that lights up green or orange if installed properly or improperly. It also checks for reverse polarity, in addition to bad ground.

Waffle iron light goes on gut does not heat up


The most common reason for not heating up is because of a blown thermal fuse. Apparently the controller lets the iron get too hot or the fuse is out of manufacturing tolerance - and so the fuse opens.
The green lamp is normally lit when the relay is off and dark when the relay is on. When cold, the relay normally turns on within a second of power-up (switched on). During power-up, the green (ready) lamp should flicker on, and then as the relay clicks, go dark. If the green (ready) lamp does not flicker, the fuse is probably blown.
The fuse is clamped inside the bottom clamshell in silicon tubing. A replacement fuse (240°C) can be purchased from many sources. The fuse should be re-attached to the wires with new all-metal crimp fasteners.
If the iron is getting too hot and blowing thermal fuses, you may be able to avoid this failure by keeping the thermostat set lower. (Turned a bit counter-clockwise.) If the waffles are no longer dark enough at the ready beep, you may have to use manual override by watching the steam and smelling the waffle.

Tried to make waffles for the first time. They consistently burned in the middle. Added milk to the batter. Still burned in the middle, barely cooked on the outside.


Sounds like you might not have let it warm up enough. These usually heat from the inside out. So they heat up and then take a few minutes for the emtire surface to be hot.

Turn it on and let it heat up while you make your mix up. Or a good 10 minutes. Give it a spray of pam or equivilent on both sides if you want and then make some waffles. If you want to experiment a bit try dropping a drop of water on the middle and outside. When they boil or his about the same your are hot enough.

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
