Best Belgian WAffle Makers

Belgian waffle makers vary according to functionality, shape, size AND price. A Belgian waffle iron uses deep indentations that give you fluffier waffles that can catch more toppings and maple syrup. Some models can produce a waffle in a mere minute or two!

Historically constructed with iron plates, most modern waffle makers are made of a conductive aluminum alloy coated with a non-stick coating others use stainless steel. 

 Some designs "flip" the iron to invert the plates after the batter is poured. This action is said to result in lighter waffles evenly baked on the top and bottom, along with producing a crisp crust and tender interior.

Here are the 5 belgian waffle irons that produce the yummiest waffles - crisp  on the outside soft and moist on the inside.
