The Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker, commonly known simply as the Waring Pro Waffle Maker, is a rotary system waffle maker -- the waffle grids rotate to bake and brown both sides of the waffle evenly. The unit also features a nonstick grid surface as well as six separate browning settings to make waffles to suit personal preferences. Using the waffle maker isn't a complex task. Once you have your batter made, you simply preheat the grids, pour your batter and wait for the unit to alert you that the waffle has finished baking.
- Lint-free microfiber cloths
- Vegetable oil
- Pastry brush
- Cooking spray (optional)
- Silicone spatula
Position your Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker on a table or counter away from any other heat sources or plastic.
Lift up the lid. Unlock and unfold the handle if applicable. Wipe the interior top and bottom grids with a damp cloth and then close the lid.
Select browning setting "4" using the dial. Plug in and turn on the appliance. Wait for it to preheat in about four minutes. A green light should come on, and the waffle maker should beep several times to indicate that it's ready for the batter.
Open the lid and apply vegetable oil to the grids. Brush it on with a pastry brush or use a cooking spray.
Fill the included measuring cup with batter. If you have a thick batter, pour to the top of the cup. If you have a thin batter, pour to the 3/4 line.
Align the cup spout over the center of the bottom grid and pour out the batter. Use a silicone spatula to even out the batter across the grid.
Lower the lid. While still holding the handle, turn the closed assembly 180-degrees clockwise.
Wait for your waffle maker to beep three times, indicating that the waffle has finished baking. Turn the assembly counterclockwise to its original position and then lift up the lid. Remove the waffle carefully from the bottom grid.
Repeat the process to make your next waffle. If you want a darker waffle, turn the browning setting to a number higher than "4." If you want a lighter waffle, turn the setting to a lower number.
Cleaning and Storage
Turn off and unplug your waffle maker when finished. Leave the lid in the up position. Wait for the unit to cool.
Wipe the grids and handle with a damp paper towel or cloth.
Wait for the grids to dry. Close the lid and fold the handle, if applicable. Wipe the exterior with a dry cloth.
Store your waffle maker as desired.
If you see smoke or smell a strange odor when you turn on your waffle maker for the first time, don't worry -- this is normal.
