This is our review of the best waffle makers and if you enjoy the odd waffle in your diet from time to time, then you should consider having one of these in your kitchen. When it comes to buying one of these for your home, the average price you should expect to pay is £25.
They are also referred to as Belgian Waffle Makers. This can get confusing but for clarity true Belgian waffles are the round ones. Many of the makers today produce square ones but now at least you know the difference.
There are a few different styles available, such as the standard square shaped waffle, but you can also get circular ones, and with some you can also create a variety of shapes. The latter is better if you have younger children as they will often like the shape.
Just below you will find a table of the Top 5 products in the UK market right now. You will also find a link in that table which will take you to a more detailed review, if you would like to read more. Below that I have completed a shorter review on each one, if you prefer to see an overview.

Cooks Professional Premium Electric Rotary Waffle Maker 180° Rotating – 920 Watts. (Cream)
This is one of the best on the market right now as you can tell by the ratings. It makes professional-quality waffles in less than five minutes. All you need to do is prepare your ingredients and pour the mixture on to the waffle plates.
The maker will then create 1″ thick, 6.7″ round Belgian waffle by rotating 180 degrees for even baking and browning.
There are a few indicators such as a “ready-to-bake light” and a “power indicator” and also an alarm to let you know when they are finished.
It is easy to clean, as it has a non-stick coating and a locking mechanism to prevent spillages.
The drip tray underneath can be removed for easy cleaning. The handle stays cool and can be folded for storage.
It measures W20 x L38 x H22cm.

Best Waffle Maker with Removable Plates
Some buyers would prefer to buy a waffle maker with plates that can be removed, changed and are easier to clean.
Many of the cheaper models get pretty dreadful reviews. That is something to be aware of.
The pick of the bunch as far as we are concerned is the Moulinex 3-in-1 Panini Sandwich & Waffle Maker. It looks good and works really well.
As the name would suggest not only does this one have hot plates for waffles, you can also make a good toasted sandwich panini with this particular machine. What makes this even better is that you can pop the plates into the dishwasher for super easy cleaning without all of the hard work.
