After more than 60 years and nearly 60 million Bundt Pans, Nordic Ware remains one of the most trusted and endearing names in top-quality bakeware and kitchenware. From distinctive classics like the Bundt Pan, Micro-Go-Round, and Rosette Iron to trendy new kitchen favorites like 3-D cake pans and cookie cutters and the indoor Kettle Smoker, Nordic Ware holds a coveted place in every kitchen.
The waffle iron I received for review is the Nordic Ware Stovetop Belgian Waffler. It is made of cast aluminum which helps distribute the heat evenly and is very compact with no cords to deal with.
My Opinion: Absolutely LOVE this waffle iron! It is much lighter than I thought it would be but very sturdy. It is great that there are no cords to deal with and the compact design means I can stick it in my cabinet without any problem at all. Actually, it fits nicely right in my cutting board section of the cabinet.
It is very easy to use…just turn the burner on medium (I used 5 out of 10 on my stove) and heat the pan 3 minutes on each side. I did this while making the waffle batter. Then, pour the batter in and close the top and cook 1 minute on the first side and 2 minutes on the second. The waffle just lifts right out with a fork…no sticking, no spraying necessary and I just rinsed with water for a quick cleanup. The hinged lid will stay open by itself, allowing you to use both hands for the bowl and ladle for the batter. I used it with both a premade waffle mix and a homemade recipe and both batches came out great! My family is so happy to have homemade waffles…they have been asking for YEARS!
Here is the recipe I used for my homemade waffles. I got it from The Joy Of Cooking…an old edition I refer to frequently from my cookbook collection!
