The Oster DuraCeramic Waffle Maker is a outstanding product. The product has a modern look and feel sturdy not cheap and plastic. Using the product was very easy. I read through the directions and started to use it right away. It does not take long to heat up and once it is at its max temp you will be making waffles quick. The product is well made and I really like when you flip it the casing stays tight not letting anything drip out. Once the waffle is done it comes out very easily not sticking at all and even the time I forgot to spray it down with oil it still did not stick. This makes cleaning the unit very easy. At the price of 39.99 you can not go wrong. Can you find ones cheaper Probably but they will be more of a hassle cleaning and having it spill over.The price is right for the quality of this product. I never had a real positive thought on the brand Oster, but this product changed my mind and I see Oster as very quality brand now. The only downside to this product is the ready light. When you pour the batter in you close it once the light goes off. Well the light is on top of the unit so you have to half close it to watch the light. Putting the ready light on the front of the unit would make it easier. This is not a big deal to me because it is still easy to use. Great Product Highly Recommend it.
First Waffle Maker I ever own and we had fun using it. [...] It is so easy to use that the next day my two kids who always at each other throats made waffles together for me and my husband. They are 11 and 16. But the best news is that I received this as a sample to try and it has been one of the best gifts yet. It is very durable for the money and I would of never guessed it only cost [$]. I was always scared of making my own waffles from stratch, no more. Waffles are crisp and easy to control by flipping. I love making waffles on this oster waffle maker. Believe me no more eggos for our sundey brunch.
I absolutely loved this Belgium waffle maker. The instruction book came with some delicious recipes which is always a plus.
Pros The waffle maker flips so that the waffle are cooked evenly and consistently.
The bar handle locks when when you flip it so that nothing will come out.
The waffle maker also has a ready indicator light to let you know when it has reached the right temperature.
It has nonstick grids.
Cons The only con that I have is that the outside of the waffle maker gets hot, meaning its not cool to touch when cooking the waffles.
You can see that the pros outweigh the cons. I have used my waffle maker about 10 times since I got it as a sample. It is a great product.
I purchased the griddle last March and have used it three times before it stopped working. The knob plate came off the second time of usage. [...] Needless to say, I am disappointed with this product, how it was made, [...]
