My adult breakfasts usually consist of a lukewarm cup of coffee and half of a banana. Yet every once in a while, on a lazy Saturday morning, nothing beats a fluffy, warm waffle to bring you back to those carefree childhood days. I’m really looking forward to making them for my daughter when she gets older, so I pulled the trigger and bought a Presto FlipSide because it is the best overall waffle maker of 2021.
Performance – I’ve owned two other traditional waffle makers in the past. One was a very high-end unit from a very fancy retailer. The key to a great waffle for a novice chef is all about the flip. Being able to rotate the unit creates an evenly heated waffle way more consistantly than a traditional unit. No more having one side burned and the other still soggy.
Easy to clean – Every once in a while, I get a little careless and pour too much batter into the mold. The Presto’s non-stick surface makes it really easy to clean up.
Price – Like most kitchen appliance you can spend a small fortune and get every bell and whistle, or you can pay for just what you need. At less than $50, you won’t break the bank with this model. Also, unless you’re a waffle connoisseur, this product won’t be a daily use appliance, and I’d rather put my money into other items.
Storage – Because of the unique flip function, this waffle maker can actually be adjusted to stand up vertically. This saves valuable space in my already cramped kitchen cabinets.
