Waffles stick in unit

If I use Pam cooking non stick spray after the unit heats up the first waffle does not stick. Every waffle thereafter sticks to the unit. The directions do not indicate spraying prior to every waffle. Is this required or am I doing something else incorrect?

    I don't use butter or margarine but I do use canola oil (6 Tbs.) in the batter. This minimizes the cholesterol impact I have on my body. Cholesterol is a problem for me. Thanks for the suggestion. Is there anyone else who faces a similar problem and use vegetable or canola oil in their batter and is able to keep sticking from occurring?

    We have had our Waring Waffle Maker for almost 2 years and have on occasion experienced the same sticking problem with the waffles. We have attempted to try a few different things. Each with varying results - some better than others. Here is what we have tried at different times: 1) Add 1/3 cup cooking oil to the waffle mixture. 2) Crisco the waffle skids prior to use first thing each time. 3) Spray Pam on the skids prior to each new waffle. Because I have misplaced my Waring instructional manual, I am not sure "what" the manufacture recommends. Does anyone have a "surefire" remedy for getting the waffles NOT to stick? Please advise.

If you add a 1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine to the waffle mix, they do not stick, mine don't stick at all. There is also a recipe using yeast, butter, etc, that makes excellent waffles, and they do not stick.

How can I clean this appliance if it can't go in water?


just wipe it over with a moist soapy rag/dishcloth
the only areas needing cleaning are the cooking surfaces and they should be teflon non-stick surfaces
they are not water proof electrically and that is why you cannot immerse in water but a wipe over is sufficient to clean

Need directios to use. waffle sticks to top and bottom


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.

Why does the waffle stick to the maker and how do you clean it???


Waffle pans are seasoned through usage. If you clean the pans too well, they won't work right. It's a bit like cooking with a cast iron skillet. If you wash it with soap and water, you strip the oils off of it, and it will rust.
Use some Pam or similar product when you get ready to make your waffles. Spray the lower pan, add your batter, and then spray the upper pan. Close the waffle maker up quickly after spraying the upper pan.
To clean off old material, it's easiest to scrape it off with a nylon scraper, taking care not to score the metal. A bit of the cooking spray will help on the most stubborn baked on material.
I personally prefer to use the batter that requires the addition of cooking oil, and I still spray the pans as well. This leaves me with a seasoned waffle making machine.
When you've finished with the waffle machine, wipe down the outer surfaces with warm soapy water, followed by clean water. Clean the pans the least you can. Usually, if the waffles are leaving little to no residue, we just wipe the pans clean with a paper towel, and then put it away.
By the way, the first waffle in any given batch seems to never be as good as the ones that follow. We call this one the "sacrificial waffle" and move on. Our dogs appreciate it!
Best regards. Hope that you found this somewhat helpful. --W/D--

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.

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.

Waffles are separating when we open the plates


In my experience this is due to sticking on the plates. I spray a little cooking spray on them with each batch I make.
Maybe they arn't quite done.

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)
