Waffle Maker with Removable Plates

Waffle maker with removable plates

Since the invention of the electric waffle maker in 1911 we’ve seen a huge number of different designs come to the market. Rotating plates, thermometer and alarms and heart shaped molds are just some of their innovative features, but perhaps the most useful are waffle makers with removable plates.

Removable plates offer a range of benefits, firstly because they’re so easy to clean. Many waffle makers feature a drip tray, but this still doesn’t stop batter cooking onto the surface and not coming off with the actual waffle itself. You probably won’t need to clean your waffle maker every time you use it, but after a few uses the oil will begin to get old and the plates will need ‘re-seasoning’. This is very easily done when you can remove the plates to be soaked in warm, soapy water, dried and replaced.

The second and perhaps most important benefit of a Belgian waffle maker with removable plates is that your appliance can double as two or even three other appliances, rather than simply being a waffle maker. Appliances such as the compact indoor grill and the toasted sandwich maker work in an identical way to the waffle iron (two metal plates that heat up and cook the food item on both sides), and so being able to just change the plates means that you can use one appliance for several different jobs. This makes the waffle maker with removable plates ideal for anyone with a small amount of storage space, or even a small budget, as buying different plates for one machine is cheaper than buying three different machines.

Most of the big kitchen appliance manufacturers have cottoned onto the popularity of waffle makers with removable plates, and they offer models of their own. Be sure to check out Sunbeam, Cuisinart and Black & Decker for their individual designs.
