Re: Favorite Waffle Iron ?

All-Clad 4 Square in this house. Nice device. In fact we are using it today with an overnight yeasted recipe, which is such a vastly superior waffle it boggles the mind.

WB folks, if you break one - go to the site, drop a glass in your cart and use REPLACEMENT - this drops the price to $10 (yes, I check you knuckleheads...) for the breakage warranty for WB participants.
