Since 1926, the "Toastmaster" brand of cooking and baking products has graced the kitchens of residential and commercial chefs around the world beginning with the first truly automatic pop-up toaster and moving on to a wide range of household, food preparation, cooking and ironing appliances. The Toastmaster Belgian Waffle Maker continues this fine tradition with an easy-to-use design, featuring a pre-heat indicator light and non-stick baking surfaces, that quickly makes golden brown or dark and crispy, deep-pocketed Belgian waffles within minutes.
Make your batter and set it aside. If you don't have a Belgian waffle recipe, refer to the recipes provided by Toastmaster in your waffle maker's user manual.
Prepare your waffle maker by wiping the surface of the waffle grid plates with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow the plates to air-dry and then spread a thin layer of vegetable oil over the plates.
Plug your waffle iron into an electrical socket to pre-heat it.
Ladle or pour approximately 1/2 to 2/3 cup of batter---depending on your recipe and waffle maker model---on to the bottom waffle-grid plate once the indicator light on your waffle maker turns OFF and then close the lid so that the top plate fits evenly over the bottom plate. If done correctly, the indicator light should turn back ON. Depending on your Toastmaster waffle maker model, the indicator light will stay ON during baking or turn ON/OFF intermittently.
Check the waffle while baking after approximately three minutes by gently and slowly lifting the lid with a potholder. If the lid lifts easily and your Belgian waffle has a golden brown or dark brown, crisp appearance, carefully lift it from the lower plate using a wooden or plastic utensil and position on a plate. Immediately ladle or pour batter on to the lower plate and close the top lid to bake another as the waffle can cool quickly if the lid remains open for longer than a minute. If the lid sticks to the waffle, reposition the lid and continue to bake the first waffle.
Unplug your Toastmaster waffle maker when finished and set it aside to cool. Wipe the plates with a lint-free microfiber cloth to clean.
