The design is nice and compact and the thick waffles that the device cooks are well rounded, taking less than two minutes. It is also incredibly easy to use; however, its lack of features and questionable long-term build quality mean that this is only a product suitable for those on a budget. #4 Proctor-Silex 26070 Like the Oster, the Proctor Durable Belgian Waffle Baker is small, compact, and easy to use. Taking 4-7 minutes per waffle means that this device could never be the best waffle maker out there, but it does produce decent results with waffles crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, though not quite as even as some will like. The fact that it is more affordable than the Oster gives it a higher placing; but once again, this is only really meant for the budget-minded casual waffle eater. #3 Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker The Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is a step up from the Oster and Proctor, producing restaurant quality results thanks to its rotating feature. 7-inch waffles are cooked quickly and consistently. The digital timer helps you get closer to making the perfect waffle, but reviewers were also frustrated that it’s battery operated and there is no on/off switch. Were it not more expensive than the #2 waffle maker on the list, the Flipside could have easily placed higher. It is simple, it is easy to use, and it does what it is supposed to do, well. #2 26010 Hamilton Beach We are at the business end of our reviews now and the Hamilton Beach Flip Belgian Waffle Maker. Like the Presto, this little device knows exactly how to churn out the perfect waffle with hotel-quality results. The rotating feature ensures an even cook, with browning controls and indicator lights to make the job simple. It is also easy to clean thanks to it’s removable tray and stores away nicely. There is little to choose between this product and the one at #3 on our list, but since the Hamilton has removable cleaning tray and price is high on the list of consumer priorities, the more slightly affordable Hamilton Beach waffle maker gets the nod. #1 Waring Pro WMK600 This is the best waffle maker on the market in 2016. The Waring Pro WMK600 is in a league of its own. Not only is it the only appliance on the list to make two deep waffles at a time, it does it with ease. A rotating function ensures even baking, and a rotary thermostat and browning control knob help guarantee results to rival any waffle house. In fact, it is often used as a hotel waffle maker! To ensure you can’t go wrong, this model has also added a three-beep indicator, and it’s easy to clean. Add these features to a great design and exceptional build-quality, and you might well find yourself with a waffle addiction.
