Best waffle maker you can buy
Initially purchased on a whim after trialing this at a hotel for buffet breakfast. if you like waffles this is the best maker you can buy with easy cleanup, less spill and more precise measuring of batter with the supplied cup. Allows for extra time for browning which is great if you want to have a pale waffle so you can freeze and re-toast later. Versatile use, rosti turns out perfect.
Great waffle maker but...
Waffle maker worked great still does with the exception that the timer doesn't automatically start anymore which is a shame.
Most of my appliances are Breville love the products but a little disappointed the timer has failed.
Have to press the restart button to get the timer started. I think I read other people also had the same problem shame they hadn't rectified the repeating issue
Fantastic Waffle Maker
After being diagnosed with gluten intolerance due to a thyroid disease, I noticed that gluten free waffles were almost next to impossible to buy at the supermarket/bakeries, etc. I am waffle fiend and love nothing more than waffles for breakfast, dessert or even chicken & waffles for dinner. I decided if I want gluten free waffles I would have to make my own and purchased this little beauty. I would of given it 5 stars if not for the high price, but I don't regret purchasing it. It makes the most fluffy, thick and crispy waffles (gluten free an...d regular for the non intolerant people). Has multiple settings for different waffle types and a manual mode for perfect cooking, easy to clean and is pretty much goof-proof (I have not burnt a waffle yet). Highly recommended!
Very easy to use and clean
This was a real 'indulgence' purchase that I was worried wouldn't get enough use to justify the price ($205 on sale), but even with just Sunday brunch use, I think it's a good investment. I have the BWM640 which makes 4 waffles at once and it really is easy to use and more importantly, very easy to clean afterwards. The waffles are delicious and very substantial, one with ice cream is surprisingly filling. I've had no problems with the recipes from the pdf on the Breville website.
It's worth noting that it can't be stored on it's side, so yo...u need the space to store it flat (the 4-waffle model is 40 cm deep x 33 cm wide). It's heavy enough that I keep it on the bench rather than in a cupboard. Breville: I wish it could be stored vertically, it would save a lot of space! I'm also not a fan of the brushed stainless steel finish, I'd rather it matched my other Breville appliances which are all black. It only took a few days before I splashed water on it which has left annoying marks that I haven't been able to remove. I would give it 5 stars if these two things were changed.

Questions & Answers
Hi, we have been frequently using this waffle maker now for about 2 years and really love it. To experiment further I’d like to know the max temperature the maker generates. Thanks
How can I prevent belgian waffles from burning on the outside and undercooking on the inside? I have had my waffle maker for just over two years and for the bulk of this time the maker worked beautifully. However, for the last few months our belgian waffles are either burnt on the outside or undercooked on the inside. Is there something I can do to fix this? I purchased mine in Canada so not sure where I can send this to to fix it but by now it's certainly out of warranty.
What's the difference between the 620 and 640? Is it just that the 640 makes 4 waffles? Can I make potato waffles with both?
The 620 seems to be discontinued in australia. I love the 640 (which was expensive until my wife found frequent flier points). Not sure what potato waffles are/
