Where to Buy

Reviews say the Proctor Silex 26500 Morning Baker is great if you want a smaller, inexpensive Belgian waffle maker. It makes one 7-inch round Belgian waffle at a time, and takes about five minutes to cook it. If you have a large family that eats together, you may want to consider the Chef's Choice WafflePro Express 840 (*Est. $70) , which makes five smaller, heart-shaped waffles at once. The Proctor Silex 26500 lacks some features included in high-end Belgian waffle makers, such as browning controls and an audible timer, and some owners say it would be easier to clean if the plates were removable.

Professional reviews of this waffle maker are scarce. Cuisine at Home has credible coverage, but the review isn't online and the magazine no longer sells back issues, just bound volumes of an entire year's editions. Thus, we rate the owner reviews as your best destination. About 50 users weigh in on the 26500 Morning Baker, with some saying it's easy to burn the waffles or yourself.
