If it is a non stick waffle iron don't use a spray coating.
If it is a uncoated iron it is normal for them to stick for the first few uses. If you already have waffles stuck in the iron coat the stuck areas with cooking oil and reheat. Use a wooden or bamboo sewer to pick out the remains. Use cooking spray to coat the grids before cooking waffles. Try a different recipe. Some are more forgiving and don't stick as easily.
These instructions are taken from a WM14 waffle maker, maybe they will work for you. It doesn't say anything about removing the plates:
"Wipe Cooking Plates with absorbent paper towel or a soft cloth. Although the Cooking Plates are coated with a non-stick coating, some batter or ingredients may still adhere to the Waffle Maker. To remove, simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked-on food. Allow to stand for 5 to 10 minutes. This should soften the food and make it easy to remove with absorbent paper towel or a soft cloth. If the preceding measure fails to remove the food residue, we suggest wiping the Cooking Plates with a slightly dampened cloth and a little non-abrasive detergent."
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.
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!
Be cautious whencleaning..take note of this, UNPLUGFROM ELECTRICAL OUTLET BEFORE CLEANING. NEVER IMMERSE APPLIANCE IN WATER OROTHER LIQUIDS.? While grids are still warm, brush with clean,soft pastry brush or cloth.
? Donot use steel wool or coarse scouring pads. Remove stubborn
? >stains with a plastic mesh puff or pad. For best results, use only
products with directionsstating safe for cleaning non-stick surfaces
? Theexterior finish should be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner
and a soft, dampcloth.
? Close latch and stand on end for storage.
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
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..
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)
