Total Satisfaction: Chef’s Choice WafflePro Belgian Waffle Maker
The Chef’s Choice 850-SE Belgian Waffle Maker is everything I would ask for in a waffle maker. This unit has great wattage and turns really hot, which is important for making crispy but fluffy waffles within two minutes. For a family of six, the cooking speed of this countertop appliance is just right to get us all those waffles in time. This waffle maker is actually a great buy even if it is quite expensive. I do love this machine very much!
Why this is my Choice
Here are a few inside bits of info that might leave you quite as impressed as I was when I first used it:
- EASE OF USE: I don’t find any level of difficulty as I continue to use this waffle maker. Setting the controls is not really hard. I usually choose “4” for Color Adjust and select “Crisp exterior and moist interior” and “Uniform Texture.” I have always used these settings and my waffles always come out perfect.
- GREAT BOOKLET: I really admire the booklet that comes with this unit. I have read it and it really explains everything about the waffle maker. Another thing is that inside the booklet are some good waffle recipes. I have tried cooking some of these recipes and they all turned out excellent. This is one of the best booklets that I have ever read about a product that I bought.
- GREAT WATTAGE: This waffle iron has a good amount of wattage. It is just enough to produce the kind of waffles that I really love – cake-like inside and crispy outside. Preheating the machine is fast and my waffles don’t taste dry because the cooking time is only two minutes. This is really a wonderful waffle maker.
- This Chef’s Choice 850-SE cooks four delicious Belgian waffles within 90 to 120 seconds. Each waffle has a thickness just like those offered in restaurants.
- The QuadPlus baking system of this professional waffle maker gives the user the ability to customize his waffles by independently adjusting the settings accordingly.
- The plates of this Belgian waffle maker were specially engineered to ensure optimal batter distribution as well as even cooking so there’s no need to flip.
- Other features of these waffle makers are Sleep Mode, automatic countdown timer and fast heat-up.
This is really an amazing Belgian waffle iron. The Chef’s Choice 850-SE’s simplicity and accuracy of the settings have made me admire the beauty of waffle baking. I just love how perfect my waffles come out every single time. I just wish that this waffle maker has a longer power cord because I was having a hard time finding the power outlet for it in my kitchen. I resolve to use an extension cord for my other countertop appliance just to give way for the waffle maker. Overall, I am a totally satisfied user of the Chef’s Choice 850-SE WafflePro Belgian Waffle Maker.
