The Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker cooks one round Belgian waffle at a time. It has a digital timer but no temperature control, so it may not be a good choice if you want to use it for whole-grain waffles that usually call for a longer cooking time at a lower temperature. Like pro-style waffle irons, the Presto 03510 must be flipped over while cooking, but the cooking plate flips from right to left instead of rotating. This takes a little more effort than rotating the handle on a professional waffle iron, but the FlipSide is also much less expensive.
Users posting reviews at retailer websites say this model works well and is sturdy, but a few complain about the timer, which requires a battery. The KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker (*Est. $200) receives stronger recommendations overall but is much more expensive.
The Presto FlipSide isn't included in professional tests of waffle makers, but it does receive about 850 total user reviews at Walmart.com and Amazon.com. The vast majority of owners are quite satisfied with it.
