Question about Sunbeam 3852 Waffle Maker

1 Answer

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 use to coat the griddle to stop this. If not I guess I throw it away. Thank you Pat

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....

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)

SOURCE: The waffles are sticking and when i open the lid

It's possible the iron is dirty-- do you clean it after each use? Try cleaning it thoroughly, then spraying and try again-- it should work.

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!

How to clean the stove top waffler & keep waffles from sticking?


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.

Don't over mix the batter. Let it be slightly lumpy you don't want to mix every bit of flour to a totally smooth batter. Let is have a few lumps in it.

I found the coating on the sunbeam to be less than impressive in regards to nonstickiness, so I use pam with it and have way fewer sticking probs. As to the doneness issue, if it's not actually burning then try to let it cook longer even if the light goes out. Hope this was a little bit helpful at least:)

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.

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.
