I finally found a solid waffle maker from the 1980's. I find that some appliances seems to have been built better years ago compared to their current, modern counterparts. The name of the waffle maker escapes me, but its all stainless steel, chrome and does an excellent job with waffles. The best thing? The waffle maker was a find at a local thrift store, where I only paid $2.99 for it. Score!!
These waffles are great for freezing and then toasting the morning you want to enjoy them. I plan on making quite a few waffles for my freezer to make breakfasts during the work week easier and faster!
