The Hamilton Beach Waffle Maker

I decided to do a Hamilton Beach waffle maker review after throwing away my old Hamilton Beach model and getting a new All Clad waffle maker.

Hamilton Beach makes a lot of different kitchen appliances and they have a good reputation as being quality products. I owned an older model and figured it was time to get a new waffle maker, I chose the All Clad because of personal experience with it and the good reviews I had read about it.

I was very satisfied with my old waffle maker and must admit that I was tempted to get another one from Hamilton Beach however I am the kind of guy that likes to try out different products and compare stuff. My girlfriend gets mad at me cause I always want to go out and buy the latest and greatest products even if we already have something similar.

If you look at m other lenses you will find the article I wrote about the All Clad waffle maker and find that I really enjoy it and think it is a good product. However this is about The Hamilton Beach waffle maker so let me get to it.

Hamilton Beach makes several different waffle makers and the model I used to own is no longer available. When we went looking for a new waffle maker we did take a good look at the Hamilton Beach models that are available now.

One of my favorite models was the Hamilton Beach 26030 Belgian Waffle Maker. I love Belgian waffles and new right away this is the type of model I wanted to get instead of a traditional waffle maker.

This model is very unique as it has a flip design, this is supposed to make the waffles very thick and fluffy. A good friend of mine bought this model a few months ago and so I have had the pleasure of watching this bad boy in action. I must say that I was impressed and the waffles were delicious.

This is a really cool waffle maker that you can flip the waffles while they are cooking to produce thick and fluffy waffles. It has an adjustable browning control which is used to makes waffles crispy on the outside and nice and fluffy on the inside. It comes with an indicator light that tells you when the waffle maker is at the right temperature to add the batter and it has a cool touch handle that can be folded to make storage easy. The grids and drip tray are removal and they are dishwasher safe. I have seen this Hamilton Beach waffle maker in action and it really is a good product.

Waffle Ideas

Hamilton Beach 26020 Belgian Style Waffle Baker

Another model we looked at was the Hamilton Beach 26020 Belgian Style Waffle Baker, this is a nice little unit that seems to be very easy to use. This is not a flip style waffle maker however from reading reviews you can flip this model over when making waffles. A part of the reason you want to flip the waffles is to help ensure that the batter completely fills the grids. I have never had the pleasure of using this model but from what reviews I have read it seems to be a very good product.

Hamilton Beach 26040 Mess Free Belgian Style Waffle Maker

Waffles or Waffle Sticks - Great for the Kids

The next model I want to talk about is the Hamilton Beach 26040 Mess Free Belgian Style Waffle Maker, although I didn't even consider buying this model I thought it was kind of cool. I prefer the square waffles over the round ones partly because I like to make sandwiches with my waffles. However, I did take a close look at this model because I thought it was kind of unique and very cool. You can make a traditional style round Belgian waffle with this model or break the waffle into 8 waffle sticks. I thought this was a great idea for those with kids.

Again, I have no personal experience with this waffle maker but the reviews I have read have all been good.

This waffle maker is really cool as you can break the waffle up into 8 waffle sticks, this is a fun way to feed your kids a great breakfast. This model come with a handy cup for pouring the batter in as well as a batter channel that helps keep messy spills from happening. The are non stick for easy cleanup and it has an indicator light to let you know when it is ready to use. Once again I have no personal experience with this model but it has received great reviews.

I Love Waffles

I am very much a breakfast guy and I particularly love waffles. I make them so much that my girlfriend and her kids get sick of them. Lately I have taken to getting very creative with waffles and using them to make things such as sandwiches. I must say that the best bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich I have ever had was using waffles as the bread.

Of course you could use waffles to make just about any kind of sandwich you wanted, I have had fried egg sandwiches as well as ham and cheese and they were both delicious. This just goes to show that there is more you can do with a waffle then just pour syrup on them. If you decide to buy a new waffle maker then take some time to look online for some different recipes and ideas, you just might be surprised at what you will find.

      I like the style of this waffle maker. I don't have one, but thinking of getting one, as my daughter has one, and invites me over for brunch. Great review!
