Presto 03510 Flipside Belgian Waffle Maker Review
Waffles are no doubt one of the most popular breakfast menu entities in America. Why are waffles so great? You can take them anytime, anywhere, and with anything- sausages, bacon, whipped cream and even fruit jam. Are you as a huge waffle fan tired of relying on restaurants and cafes for you waffles? Then you should greatly consider getting your own waffle maker. However, there are so many out there that you might find it difficult to choose the right one. I’ve had my share of products. One of the best brands I’ve come across is the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker. Below are a few of my favorite things about this model.
1. Extra thick nonstick Interior grid
What is a Belgian waffle without its characteristic shape and grid pattern? And, of course, it has to be thick. That's one of the things I look out for. When making waffles, I want to do it right. It’s the only way I’ll enjoy the waffles. So my waffle maker has to be up to the task. The Belgian Waffle Maker surface allows you to make waffles up to seven inches in diameter with four easily detachable sections. The grid gives the waffles that beautiful pitted pattern we all love to sink our teeth into. Another thing that makes this model’s grid so amazing is that it is extra thick. This ensures that your waffles are nice and thick for full satisfaction every time you indulge in the treat. Finally, the Presto Waffle Maker grid is nonstick which makes cleaning a breeze.
2. 180 degrees rotating mechanism
The only thing worse than unevenly shaped waffles is unevenly baked waffles. Every waffle-lover knows this. With this Presto Waffle Maker, this problem is practically unheard of. The 180 degrees rotating mechanism allows you to easily and safely rotate the machine as you start to bake. This ensures that all the batter is evenly spread out in the grid. The result will be nicely shaped waffles with a nice crunchy exterior and a soft interior for you or your guests to enjoy. It has inter-lockable handles that keep the waffle maker shut as you rotate to eliminate chances of the batter spilling as you rotate
3. Dual purpose base
Making waffles should be easy. You want a user-friendly waffle-maker. The Presto 03510 Waffle Maker has a very slim but highly functional base. It is rubber padded to ensure for non-slip grip on your kitchen surfaces. This comes in very handy during the flipping part of preparing waffles by ensuring that you are rotating about a firmly fixed surface. No one likes accidents and spills in the kitchen. I for one don’t want to have to clean up each time I make some waffles. The base also does the job of supporting the waffle maker whether or not it is in use. Another amazing thing about the Presto Waffle Maker base is that it can be adjusted and locked in a vertical position for the purpose of storage. This means that when you are done with your baking you can simply fold it and store it away without having to hustle to find space for it in a horizontal position.
4. Timer with audio and visual signaling
I multitask. Am sure you do too. As the waffles are getting ready, I bustling through the kitchen, finishing up on chores, catching up with the kids, relaxing in front of the TV or receiving calls from my friends. You’ve been there. It’s had to keep up with everything, and we don’t want the waffles getting ruined. The Belgian Waffle Maker is designed to make life a whole lot easier for us. It does this using the countdown timer. Depending on your waffle recipe, you will set the timer to the needed time and go about your business. When the time is up, the machine notifies you with a beep and a display on the digital screen.
5. Aesthetics and Style- Stainless steel exterior
It may make good waffles, but it also has to look good. The stainless steel exterior give the waffle maker a sleek and modern look that goes well with just about every kitchen theme. The material also makes it easy to clean as stainless steel is, as the name suggests, pretty difficult to stain. Finally, the stainless steel material can resists rust formation and other forms of corrosion. This ensures that you will have a nice looking machine for a very long time.
