Our Cuisinart Belgian round waffle maker broke, been using an Oster classic round waffle maker. This was a big hit, family wanted 2nds (wife is very picky and doesn't like them much), so this was a big positive. In 3 days, made them twice. Easy to use. wait for green lite (setting is at 2-2 1/4), pour batter, wait about 5-10 sec, flip wait for green light, then eat! Highly recommended! Longevity is the only thing that I can't tell. as that takes time. UPDATE 12/8/16 - It's been over a year now and still works well and going strong!
Negative 0 review! I ordered this waffle maker and received bowls. Called in and was so nicely offered for me to drive to UPS to return the bowls and place a new order for the waffle maker.... why would I order from Sears again after the 3rd problem? I will not be ordering from Sears agaIn. Highly recommend finding somewhere else to buy from!
So far so good, no complaints whatsoever makes waffles really well. It has a timer that you can adjust for different thickness of batter. Feels like the hotel experience, which always brings back good memories for me.
