Waffling Here

Several times a year we have waffles for supper. I remember how difficult it was for my mother to make up the batter, folding in egg whites and being very careful with the process. We often had them for Sunday night supper and hers never stuck. They were always a treat. I'm sorry I didn't keep her old appliance. The wire was badly frayed.
I remember one exactly like this!
And I remember when this one was the NEW one!

Through the years I have tossed out several waffle makers in my frustration, because no matter what I did, the waffles always stuck. Not on the one I use now - not with this mix. I'm not sure now if it was the appliance or mix, but I KNOW I can depend on these to be perfect every time! Krusteaz waffles cook up crisp and golden on the outside, tender and moist on the inside.

When I first found and used this product, I was in 7th heaven. They come out great and are light and crispy and the best part is that they don't stick in the waffle maker.
However, I'm fussy. Surprise?  Well, I don't want drips on the countertop so I put newspaper under the appliance and the large pitcher in which I prepare the mix. I don't want the waffle to overflow the grids and the first one is always my "tester." From then on they are perfectly square and cooked to be the best ever. There is no light that goes out or comes on when they are ready to take out, there is no timer installed, I do not oil or grease the grids. It is really easy to make and results are very tasty. They are ready when the steam stops rising. Just a few minutes.
AND they are more square and "waffle shapely" when the last of the batter has been poured.  No messes!
