Calphalon® No Peek™ Round Waffle Maker
Not sure I will reach waffle nirvana with this one
Needed to replace my 25+ yr old workhorse that was on it's last leg. On the plus side, this one is much lighter, makes non-Belgian waffles and is a good size for easy storage. But I am still working on getting the perfect waffle every time. Used a 1/2 cup to exactly measure batter the first time and it wasn't enough. Spooned in enough batter to cover the bottom the next time and it overflowed a little. Have a son who likes a waffle on a daily basis before school so I have had lots of practice, and I am still getting mixed results. If I follow the light when it says it's ready, it would be a bit underdone for my taste, so the No Peek part is kind of bogus to me. It's not like the thing is going to explode if you look at it, so I just keep checking it til I say it's done. Guess it's good if you are impatient and in danger of splitting apart an undercooked waffle but my old waffle iron had the same kind of feature. Overall, for the price, it's a pretty good waffle maker. I guess I just gotta keep making them to reach waffle nirvana. ;+)

Great - but Yikes!
One year and two months of use and the control knob falls to pieces!
Still useable but . . . I would prefer having the control knob in place. With steam escaping around the control it is a bit hard to make temperature adjustments with bare hands or fork or . . . .
On the plus side.
We are a gluten-free cooking zone. Previous waffle makers were difficult to clean if the gluten-free batter ran over. This unit is easy to clean. Easy!
So we will risk burnt fingertips and keep using this waffle maker.

Returned round waffle maker because grids were not as deep as bigger square No Peek waffle maker. Ordered bigger No Peek waffle maker; it has been received, but have not tried it yet.

Old Fashioned Crispy Waffles
Unlike a Belgian waffle maker that makes thicker waffles, this simple to use appliance makes good old crispy waffles. Read the directions first bc you need no oil on the surface, just in the mix. The cheaper the mix (more sugar) the crispier the waffles. It's quick, it's clean, the waffles are delicious!!
