Best Belgian waffle iron

The Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is a flipping waffle iron that requires you to turn it 180 degrees during baking. Although there's little evidence that this type of iron works better than stationary units, many owners like them and say they're fun to use. The Presto is highly rated in its price range in reviews. It doesn't have fancy features such as temperature or browning controls (and it may not be the best choice for more exotic recipes like whole-grain waffles that must cook at a lower temperature for a longer time), but it does a good job making standard thick, round waffles. Some owners are annoyed by the FlipSide's timer, which requires a battery. This iron makes a single, 7-inch round waffle.

KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker
KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker

Dual Belgian waffle iron

Most Belgian waffle irons make one waffle at a time, but the KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker can make two 7.5-inch waffles at once in this pro-style flipping unit. It also has several features not available on other irons, such as a digital timer and a safety shutoff. Owners say it works quickly, making two waffles in about five minutes. They add that the waffle iron is sturdy, very easy to clean, and produces fluffy restaurant-quality waffles. However, the temperature can't be adjusted, and the KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker costs more than twice as much as single waffle irons.

Chef's Choice WafflePro Express 840
Chef's Choice WafflePro Express 840

Heart-shaped waffle iron

Although heart-shaped waffles might not be everyone's cup of tea, the Chef's Choice WafflePro Express 840 gets terrific user reviews. It can bake five heart-shaped waffles at once in about two minutes, making it a good option for families who want to bake lots of smaller waffles. It has six temperature settings and two texture modes so you can choose between fast bake (waffles are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside) and deep bake (waffles are evenly cooked throughout). The WafflePro Express has four heating elements -- most irons have only two -- that ensure even color and good heat recovery between waffles. The 840 is also available in a classic Belgian style (*Est. $70). Both models have a one-year warranty.

Nordic Ware Cast Aluminum Stovetop Belgian Waffler
Nordic Ware Cast Aluminum Stovetop Belgian Waffler

Best Stovetop waffle iron

Reviewers say the Nordic Ware Stovetop Belgian Waffler allows for more control over color and texture than most electric models. But stovetop waffle irons also require more skill: Users must gauge when the iron is sufficiently preheated as well as when waffles are done baking, but most say it takes only a bit of practice to get the hang of it. This unusual waffle maker is compact and easy to store, and also easy to clean because it can be submerged in soapy water. The Nordic Ware stovetop waffle iron has a five-year warranty, and owners say it lasts for many years.
