It makes excellent waffles and is hassle free
I received the Breville Waffle Maker as a present from a student that was staying at our house before they left. Since that time we have had many years of enjoyment making yummy waffles.
It is a very strong unit and the cooking plates and heavy and very sturdy. It doesn't seem like there are any flimsy parts and it is a very well put together unit.
The instructions are simple to read and the waffle maker is very easy to use.
I love the crisp/heat control as I like my waffles crispy but my wife likes them softer and more like a pancake.
Because the cooking plates are so thick and strong, the waffles are cooked evenly. The waffles are cooked very well. The best way to describe it is the waffles are cooked professionally.

Years on still works well
We have had this product for a few yours now. Not used a ton, but it works well when we need it.
The crisp control is a good feature, although we haven’t moved the setting once we worked out our sweet spot.
I like the heart-shaped design - just a little more interesting than the round shape.
One weird thing we found is that it doesn’t work with commercial mix. We’ve done so twice and both times the mix got seriously stuck to the surface, making broken, ugly, if not no waffles!
Plastic handle part feels a little cheap and gets warm but doesn’t overheat.
Purchased at The Good Guys.
We use this weekly. Love making cinnamon waffles. Use for sweet or savoury. Whole family enjoys them with a variety of toppings. Easy use and cleanup. Great with adjustable temp. Allows for more control.
This little machine is perfect for our needs,never made so many waffles lol
Purchased about 18 months ago from appliances online.
Heats up fast, never sticks. Only thing is you have to move your arm out o the way on top when you open it otherwise you get steam burn. Wish they could have put a side handle on it to avoid this. I have a great waffle recipe,thick,crispy and tasty. Depends on what recipe is used to get a good result,trial and error

Best waffle maker I've used
It does what it says it will do. You can adjust the crisp settings to make them real crispy. A pro tip, use a little cornflour in your waffle better if you want them light and crispy. The only downside is if your batter expands a lot or is more than a half cup measurement, it overfill and leaks a doughy substance. Also its a bit hard to clean when it gets stuck in the back but overall cleaning is fairly straightforward. The waffles produced are on the thinner side but if you prefer thicker waffles it doesn't make them. Still the best waffle maker I've used as I hate soggy waffles and it allows me to control the crisp levels.
Waffles don’t stick, but are thin and dense
Used my usual waffle mixture. The waffles cooked evenly and come out of the machine easily, but they are so thin and dense. I will try once more, and if i get the same results, willI look for a new waffle maker. Any suggestions? I liked my old sunbeam one, but they don’t seem to do it anymore.....prior to that I had an electric cast iron one which was amazing but died as it was so old.
Wouldn’t recommend this machine.

Frustrated and dissapointed
I purchased this more expensive waffle maker from a well known Company with the expectation of it lasting for years.
It is now just over a year old and for the last month or so I have had issues with waffles sticking. When I checked warranty it had just expired. I have adjusted setting, I have adjusted batter nothing has worked and it progressively got worse. Today is the last time it is going in the trash, I have had to use a knife to get them out. The batter was completely wasted. I can't afford this, so I will not be purchasing this again.
Disappointing results as machine gets older
Found that waffles started sticking to the non stick surface. I do use my machine a lot, and am very disappointed that I will have to replace my machine so soon. It’s only just over a year old. I have followed all cleaning instructions. I won’t buy this product again.
A treat for the whole family
Always wanted one but thought it’d be too much f a hassle as opposed to making pancakes. Well, I stand corrected, the ease of making waffles was surprising. Followed the basic recipe and to our delight, the family totally enjoyed. Thought the quantity amount would not be enough as it only makes 6, though I squeezed 7 and was planning to double recipe next time. There is no need to double quantity as this was a perfect amount. We even split the last one with tummies full.
Happy customer to the waffle and would recommend.
Purchased this model online 2 weeks ago from appliances online.
I've always wanted one but was too pricey,this one was $59 and is simple to use
Small in size on outside and makes a 5 heart section waffle on the inside
instruction book is easy to understand and I found a few recipes in the back I tried.
The classic recipe works well so far,I didnt know waffle recipes could be so different. Tried one from taste.com and that was good too
Has a dial on the outside that lets u do soft of crispy waffles in next to no time. 3/5 min.
Easy to cle...
Fabulous Waffles - so easy!
This is such a perfect waffle maker! Never need oil so it’s healthier and no need to clean - if some residual is there it just comes off without rubbing. Very easy to use, never have failures even kids use it. Our Sunday breakfast is always waffles and can’t be happier than this product. Highly recommend to anyone. Very compact to store too. I followed the recipe in the enclosed booklet but you can simply use the normal pancake ingredients which are not using butter and sugar.
Kids love it!
My kids love pancakes and waffles and this makes it so easy. I just use the Aldi pancake mix and they turn out beautifully. No worrying about flipping over pancakes and they cook so quickly! Have tried cake mix and it also works well. Lots of recipes on pinterest to try as well. Well worth the $50 I paid wish I had bought one years ago.
Great fun to use
Instruction booklet says to hold it closed, but that's only needed initially and then you can let go. It works well - absolutely no complaints. The booklet is well written, although I am yet to try any of the recipes in it - instead I've taken recipes from a Danish cookbook. Being able to wrap the cord around underneath for storage is a good idea. Love the finished heart shapes of the waffles.
This is the first machine that I’ve achieved for making waffles and it works spectacularly. Although there are no timers on the machine/waffle maker, we just set timers on our phones. The cooking itself makes no difference in the taste however the noise is quite unpredictable, sometimes loud and sometimes soft. The temperature all around is often very hot to the touch ( as it is cooking the waffles ) so that would harm our fingers. The clean-up is easy enough ( whilst making the waffle mixture is a different story ) to rid of the grease made by the waffle and overall, it is a great addition.
So far so good
Not too bad, l'm a little concerned with the steam that comes out from the sides as it's really hot, and you need to hold down the front for a while for the food inside to spread out. The recipes in the book I really easy to follow and seem to work really well.
Questions & Answers
are the waffles crunchy?
The waffle machine has the ability to set the temperature to make waffles crispy which is a great feature.
Hi, I wouldn't say they are crunchy but do have a crisp taste. They are crispy once removed from maker but if you pile on top of each other, they become soft but still taste great. No different when adding toppings. Good recipe does make a difference too.
Can this waffle maker be used to make ice cream cones?
Hi, I doubt it. The waffles are quite thick whereas the cones need to be extremely thin and 'stiff' enough to hold their shape when formed as a cone. There is another brand - Russell Hobbs, available through Target - which now makes a waffle 'basket' shape, sort of like a little bowl shape, but it still has to be eaten with a spoon (the waffle takes the place of a bowl, effectively, with ice cream etc. placed inside it once the waffle basket is cooked).
