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)

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!

ProLine waffle maker sticking. Followed all direction from factory. No Pam used.


The plates on the waffle maker need to have some sort of cooking oil or butter to lubricate and prevent your waffle mix from sticking.

Spray some PAM on the plates once the correct temperature has been reached, or alternatively brush on a little melted butter or vegetable oil. Pour in your waffle mix and when cooked the waffle should lift straight off.

Goodmorning, I bought a sunbeam waffle maker at a garage sale. It looks pretty old. When I use it the batter sticks even though I put oil in the batter, and spray the griddle. Is there something I can...


Try preheating the griddle for 5 minutes, then spray a light coat of pam on the hot waffle iron plates, and then add the batter (standard batter should work) (I wouldn't add oil if it's not in the recipe). Good Luck to You with that....

Waffles sticks to waffle maker. No matter if i


I notice that this was happening to my waffle maker. I had to remove a thick layer of charred and gummy varnish. This is what the corn oil spray (and maybe sugars) had turned into. No more spray for me.
Now I do not leave the waffle iron hot and empty for long; this alters the oil coating into varnish. Power off until needed for sure.
I apply a thin coating of vegetable (soybean) oil just before adding the first cup of batter. Usually I can get all I need from the cup that measured the oil for the batter! I scrub it around with a boar's hair pastry brush. (Synthetics will melt!) That's usually all I need for a batch of waffles. If they start to stick to one half or the other, I reapply some oil with the brush.

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

I need instructions for a waffle maker mine are lost


When making a waffle have your batter made plug in your maker and get it started heating if there is a light it will go off whenit is hot enough if not wait aprox 2-3 minutes at the most 5 then spay or brush the inside of the plates with a nonstick cooking spray or brush with butter then pour your batter in the center of the bottom plate and close the lid it should start steaming right away watch the steam it is a never fail indicater of how done your waffle is the less steam the more done your waffle is, there is a lot of trial and error with waffle makers, you should spay or brush between each waffle or they will stick. Let me know how it all cooks out. goofballlovers

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)
