Hey everyone. I bought this Ostro waffle maker from Target and it is simply horrible. Here are the things that I did not like about it, compared to the $40 ostro flip one that I bought earlier.* this one takes way too long to warm up* take very long to make a waffle. It tells you 4.5 mins, but in reality it will take you a good 10 mins or more.* the waffles are very flat - you might as well make pancakes. They make very very thin and need like 4 - 5 just to fill you up, and I'm not a big person. That means for breakfast it will take you almost an hour!* The surface gets very very hot, and while that is the same with most waffle makers, this one has very little non-hot surfaces to hold on to. While I was making waffles, I burned myself once and my mom accidently did 3 times!* even if you use pam or some spread oil to grease the surface, it still sticks a little bit.* there is no tray that goes underneath if you put in too much mix - which is bound to happen now and then. Trust me, you are much much better off getting the $40 Ostro flip waffle maker. That one is just great. It is like you are eating waffles from a real nice restaurant of something. Hope this helps.
This waffle maker takes some trial and error before maximizing its potential. Most importantly, don't be shy with the temperature control. At first, I didn't want to burn the waffles, but don't worry about that. I tried and tried to make crispy waffles, but kept getting softer ones. You have to put it on MAX temperature setting, and let it get good and hot before cooking. Then, I found that it takes at least 7-8 minutes to cook a waffle thoroughly and to a crisp. Also, this waffle iron does tend to cook unevenly, so I flip and let it cook another minute the other way. I have not had significant sticking problems, but I spray the iron with PAM before each waffle. For really tasty waffles, put a tablespoon or two of cinnamon sugar spice in the batter (for a large batch). This waffle maker is okay for now, but I'll probably invest in a good flip-over type waffle maker that gets hotter and cooks more quickly.
The product is everything it claimed to be. We have used it several times and are satisfied with the results. The price was excellent compared to what we saw it on sale for in a department store.
Oster 3883 Belgian Wafflemaker, Chrome We used it for the first time tonight. The waffles are amazing! Fluffy and light (like I like 'em) or a nice golden brown crunch (like the kids like 'em). It warmed up fast. After the first waffle, the iron pumped the waffles out very quickly. We look forward to many more meals using the Oster 3883!
We got this about 2 months back. I was looking for one that would be reasonably priced and work well. Right from the first time we tried it we had yummy homemade waffles.... It takes a couple of tries to get the right amount in. If you put in too much it can overflow ... so when you first put it in go easy. Th batter should be the right consistency. We usually make waffles with the dial at "Max" so that its more brown. The only oil I use is some that I spray very lightly on the 2 sides of the waffles maker. No oil in my batter unless the mix already has any fat.Now I can make healthy waffles with fresh grated apple, chopped bananas, blueberries etc. I have had no sticking problems that some other users have mentioned.
Start your morning out right with the Oster Belgian Wafflemaker. With a non-stick Belgian surface and drip rim for easy cleaning, fresh, homemade waffles have never been easier. Adjustable temperature control helps create light & fluffy waffles everytime.
