Conair is a brand name that everyone trusts and their waffle maker lives up to the name as well. Waffle is a must-have in any American household and that demands everyone to go ahead and invest in the best waffle maker. Conair WMK600 Double Belgian Waffle Maker comes under the expensive side but it is well worth the investment. There are a variety of waffle makers to choose from but as a customer, we look for reliability and durability when purchasing appliances. There is no point in going the cheap way and shedding the sorrow tears later, only to buy yet another one. This cycle can be broken by going for the best one, for the very first time like Conair WMK600 Waffle Maker.
The Good: The product features are amazing. This Double Belgian Waffle Maker has deep 1-inch waffle pockets. The gridded pockets are nonstick, which quickly release the waffles and thus cleaning becomes easy. The rotating feature allows even spreading and baking of the batter. The rotary motion is easy to operate and turns smoothly. There is also a directional arrow to indicate the rotation sides. This feature really helps to avoid confusion when flipping the sides. See the arrows and act accordingly to make full use of the rotary feature, without damaging the hinges by turning in the wrong direction. The arrow feature was I think added in their revised designing. So now, on one side you have to turn it clockwise and the other side needs just the opposite rotation.
Previous reviews I read had complained about the arrow lacking feature which had led to some serious confusion, but looks like it is revised now. This is another great thing of the company who actually take user feedback seriously to amend their lapses.
The Bad: A major disadvantage, which is seen in a lot of waffle makers, is the non-detachable grids. Cleaning can be a challenge sometimes. Since you are unable to use soap water to clean this appliance, clean freaks like me tend to be a little disappointed. Even though the non-stick coating does not allow much sticking and burning, and pre-oiling really helps, but it is never enough unless you can actually clean it with water! Only if the grids were removable that would have solved this problem completely. Putting water to clean this appliance is a complete no since it might lead to unwanted short-circuiting or damp spots in the grid.
Bottom Line: “Premimum Quality Waffle Maker” which makes awesome Waffles. The depth of the waffles is substantial to soak in enough quantity of syrup that you would want. Load up some toppings, some whipped cream and some berries to serve the most yummilicious homemade waffles that were made in your family history! Be prepared to cater to the multiple demands for which you might have to serve the waffles more often than you plan to. IHOP visits will take a back seat as soon as you welcome this Conair WMK600 Double Belgian Waffle Maker in your house.
Conair WMK600 Double Belgian Waffle Maker Review
Premimum Features: This waffle maker has 2 LED ready indicator lights along with 3 audio beep tones, which beep aloud to signal that the waffle is ready. The 2 LEDS lights are for the Heat-Up and Ready-to-Bake options. There is also the essential browning control knob which prevents over-browning or burning of your waffles. Each flip side is monitored separately, which avoids confusion. The beeper or the audible alert feature is really useful for care free baking, since it serves as a reminder to let you know about the baking time of the waffles.
Product Quality: Most other waffle makers that I owned before had only indicator lights, which were of little or no help. What more? This waffle maker allows to you to make two sets of waffles simultaneously! This is of real help if you have a big family and when everyone is a waffle eater, like in my house. This way, no one has to wait around and everyone gets their share of hot and crispy waffle right way! The rotary feature also allows both baking to happen evenly.
Build Quality: This appliance is extremely sturdy and comes with a product warranty of 1 year. The instruction manual that comes along with this product gives clear and concise instructions about its use and maintenance. You can easily master how to handle this waffle maker since it is anything but complicated. All the features are user friendly to the extent that even first timers can use it confidently.
Pros: Like most of the star reviews of this product assure you on the quality of waffles that are made with the Conair WMK600 Double Belgian Waffle Maker, I would also stress on their “restaurant-like” quality. Crispy on the outside and smoothly airy on the inside, these extra large looking waffles are one of a kind. An average of 4-4.5 timer mins will give you the perfect bake; otherwise you can try out lesser or more to suit your wants.
Quick Heating: The heating of this waffle maker is much more efficient when compared to its rival products. This means that you get waffles made a lot quicker. And of course the double sidedness of this waffle maker just doubles your baking efficiency, when you churn out multiple waffle pieces at a time.
So not only does it help in regular home use, but it also helps manage a party scene. Calling over your friends and family for a Sunday brunch? Fear not, for Conair WMK600 Double Belgian Waffle Maker will come to your rescue. This waffle maker is very professional in its design and can also be found in a number of commercial places.
Cons: Another problem with this waffle maker is that sometimes the two sides get heated differently and you will get confused monitoring the dual sides at a time. One set of waffles come out crispier than the other, when again the other side has to be re-done.
Final Conclusion:Other than the few glitches, this appliance is a complete five star in waffle making. Even though the price may not fit everyone’s budget but remember that it allows you to make two waffles simultaneously!
