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

If you are using a waffle iron model that does not have a temperature dial to turn down the heat (to cook it slower), then consider using less batter for subsequent waffles (after cooking the first batch), or unplugging it part way thru (so it doesn't get as hot) to prevent scorching them. A few ideas to try anyway.
Use a thermometer and measure the chicken, keep track of how long it takes then you have the time it takes to cook that piece. It is always best to use a thermometer when cooking meat.
Generally I bake chicken at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes. To be sure that the chicken bre asts are cooked thoroughly, use a instant digital Cooking or Meat Thermometer for the proper temperature of 165 degrees F.
Never clean a waffle maker while it's still hot. Let it cool completely.
Never dunk your entire waffle maker in water.
Never use scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive cleansers.
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:
Remove any small puddles of oil with a dry paper towel.
Brush away any crumbs with a soft-bristled kitchen brush or old toothbrush.
Remove any batter stuck to the iron with a rubber spatula.
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.
To prevent staining and long-term oil build up, wipe down the baking plates with a damp cloth or paper towel.
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.
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.
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.
Best wasy to keep waffles from sticking is to spray the maker with a non stick food spray like "PAM". The other way is to increase the amount of oil in the batter, but that can affect the finished look.
