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?
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.

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.
Putting cooking oil in the batter will help some. Use Pam (or similar) to help keep the waffles from sticking. Spray the bottom plate, add the batter, spray the top plate and close. I'm not sure why, but the first waffle is never as good as the ones after it. But this always works for us.
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!
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.
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)
