The Cuisinart WAF-300 Belgian Waffle Maker with Removable Pancake Plates allows you to make both waffles and pancakes. It can bake 4 4-inch square Belgian waffles or 4 pancakes. These waffles are much thicker than the traditional, crispy waffles that the best thin waffle makers make. This waffle and pancake maker comes with removable plates that have nonstick coatings. This makes it easy to remove the waffles and pancakes from the appliance and it also makes it really easy to clean. These plates are also dishwasher safe so you can place them in your dishwasher which makes this waffle and pancake maker easier to clean than most other appliances. You can use this appliance to make either 4 square Belgian waffles or 4 pancakes at a time. You cannot use the waffle and pancakes plates at the same time. When your waffles or pancakes are done, there is a very loud beeping sound that tells you when they are done and you should turn off the machine. Unfortunately, the machine doesn’t turn itself off and there is no off button so you will have to pull the plug out of the outlet to turn it off.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About This Cuisinart Waffle Maker With Removable Plates
Is there another waffle and pancake maker that comes with removable plates?
Yes there is another waffle pancake maker with removable plates. However, it will make thin, traditional style waffles instead of the thick Belgian style waffles this appliance makes. The Black+Decker G48TD 3-in-1 Waffle Maker & Indoor Grill/Griddle comes with removable plates. It will allow you to make waffles, bacon, eggs and pancakes. It offers you two nonstick cooking surfaces that you can use at the same time. You can purchase it for under $50.
How does this pancake and waffle maker combo work?
You put in the plug into the outlet and the red indicator light turns on to tell you that it is heating up. Then the green indicator light turns on and the appliance beeps several times when it reaches the proper baking temperature. This is when you put the batter in and lower the lid. The green indicator light will turn off. Then the light will turn back on again and beep when your waffles or pancakes are done baking. The beep is loud enough to get your attention.
Can use the pancake plates to make eggs, bacon, sausages instead of pancakes for your breakfast sandwich?
Yes you can use them to make eggs, bacon strips, or sausages to use in a breakfast sandwich.
Can you use the waffle maker to make crispy waffles?
Yes you can use the higher settings (4, 5, or 6) of the six setting temperature control knob to make really crispy Belgian waffles.
Is this Cuisinart waffle maker with removable plates easy to store?
Yes it is. You can store it with the waffle and pancake plates inserted and the cord wrapped securely around the back of the appliance. You can even store it upright for compact storage. You can stand the appliance on the back end with the control panel facing up.
Will this waffle pancake maker with removable plates work in Europe?
