The one downside this model seems to have (correct me if I am wrong) but it appears to have no drip tray to catch any overrun batter. We get ours at least a little dirty every time we use it & it is MUCH more convenient to have a small removable tray you can toss in the dishwasher or wipe off than to need to clean the machine base. Plus the tray contains it if someone gets really carried away (or distracted at a crucial moment)...not that we'd ever have that happen (ahem) - but in case you do, the tray is a godsend.

Significantly cheaper than at the Mother Ship......but is this vendor trustworthy? Is there a catch of some kind such as it being an undisclosed refurb? Or a knock off? I am hesitant to buy as I get a strange feeling.

says refurb with 90 day warranty

Got one of these 3 years ago and it is still cranking out amazing waffles. Our family prefers an overnight batter recipe. They come out very light and crispy; we use: http://abreiden.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/overnight-belgian-waffles/

If anyone else has a great recipe, please share.

@beck12: I just put a few sheets of paper towel under mine to catch any overrun...don't even have to rinse anything! Who needs a drip tray?

@onebaddoggie: I use this same recipie (more or less) in mine. It is kind of a pain, as you have to remember to get it started the night before, but works out very well. I found it in the booklet that came with the waffle maker.

This double-style waffle maker is the way to go if you're making more than a couple of waffles. I have a similar one from Waring (not quite the same model, at least from the looks), and I make a quintuple batch of the buttermilk waffles from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook in the biggest bowl we have in the house, and freeze the extras for easy and fast kids meals (better than Egg-O) before school. This thing cranks through that quintuple batch in just a little over an hour almost as fast as I can fill them up.

Little known fact but waffles actually cook better upside down, which is why this design works so well.

If only my family liked waffles as much as I do.
Ever add crumbled bacon and pecans??
For those who don't like nuts, omit the pecans and double the bacon, because after all...

Ok. Splurged. Been aching for an excuse to try a few of these out: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/very-important-next-level-waffles-waffle-recipes

@onebaddoggie: looking forward to trying that recipe too.

The only thing better than a Belgian waffle for breakfast is a Belgian waffle with nutella for breakfast. Damn, I'm hungry.

Ha! We just pulled the trigger on one of these this weekend from BB&B (used the 20% off coupon so new was $79). We absolutely love it. We're only two batches in (sweet breakfast waffles on Saturday, savory dinner waffles on Sunday) and so far so good. For those looking to find the "perfect" Belgium waffle recipe--if the recipe calls for active yeast, you're on the right track.

@me54350: "Who wants a drip tray?" anyone with kids that are actually making their own waffles. ;)

Either you have no kids, they are grown, they aren't made to actually cook or IDK - but I like my family to all do whatever they can for themselves, which oft means there is a little mess involved & anything that minimizes mess it IS a feature worth having. I got mine for less, with a drip tray, it works marvelous & I see no reason not to point out that a tray is worth having.

@beck12:
stick an aluminum pie pan underneath and voila ...or a sheet of aluminum foil will accomplish the same thing...

@starmanbackwards: The drip tray is on mine, I already own. It is part of my machine's design & sets below the iron above the base to protect the base from any overrun. It is a design oversight. A small, simple & inexpensive thing like a drip tray should be included. I (or you or anyone else) shouldn't need to compensate using other implements. Other makers & other models come with this feature. There is no downside to having a drip tray from a consumer standpoint. It isn't in the way or extra to clean. Mine is double, includes a drip tray & was slightly cheaper (at xmas time). The actual professional Waring (used in restaurants/hotels) does have a drip tray. It is just an ease of use feature. If others are happy without one, then great. I think it's a flaw in this machine.
