Game changer!
This thing is the best. I mainly bought it for waffles, which it does expertly and efficiently. But the pancake plate is a game changer. I use it to make perfect egg sandwiches all the time. I have three kids that are super happy about this! It does scrambled or whole fried eggs perfectly. You can see how much the yolk is done and temper to your preference. Grill ham or sausage and melt cheese all at once. I toast the English muffins on it too, and we have used it as a panini maker too - makes great grilled cheese. Overall I have used it for egg sandwiches far more than waffles. The nonstick plates are high quality and truly nonstick. Easy to clean and store.

Makes great waffles and easy to clean
The main reason I bought this was because the irons were removable and easy to clean. Because it is a Belgium style, you should really use a recipe for Belgium waffles. I like our waffles to have a crispy outside a chewy inside, so I leave the waffles in a bit longer after the alarm goes off, and we set it to the highest setting for brown. Very happy with this purchase.

great waffles. bad beep.
Have used this once, and it made great waffles. However, the beep it makes when the waffles are done sounds JUST LIKE a smoke alarm, which is really, really disconcerting. If you have a hard time with loud noises, I'd go with something else.

Perfect for school day breakfast for our grandsons. Everyone can eat while the second & third batch of mix is cooking; really that fast!

No stick and no unexpected clean-up. Love this waffle maker.

Have wanted a waffle iron for some time but didn't want to spend the money on something that would be used infrequently. Got a gift card as a retirement present and decided to splurge and buy something I didn't need but wanted.

Does the waffle iron open flat so that you can use both surfaces for pancakes?
Andrea S on Aug 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No. You can make pancakes on it using the special included plates, but the iron does not open completely flat.
How long does this maker take to bake up one batch of waffles or pancakes? What's the best setting most users like so far?
Kimberly K on Oct 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Pancakes take 2 to 3 minutes, but waffles are simply listed as "Preference".
Cuisinart recommends setting #4 or #5 for golden brown waffles.
does this model work for true Belgian waffles using Belgian sugar, like correct cooking temp control from 365 deg. to 370 deg?
Dennis L on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
What type of non-stick surface does it have? Is the surface PTFE and PFOA free?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a PFOA free DuraCeramic non-stick ceramic coating.
Is this the newest model?
Lee S on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know, but would ask the company you purchase it from, or check the web.
How do you get the eggs out of the round-shaped indentations, and does it cook the tops of the eggs?
Phillipa L on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Well, you don't close the lid, if that's what's puzzling you. The indents just keep everything nicely shaped, and you lift them out just the way you would from any other surface. I think it's in the instruction booklet that you'll get with the appliance. I love mine, but I have ended up appreciating mostly the waffle iron aspect.
what is the voltage of this ?
meenakshi g on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is 120V.
Traditional or Belgian?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This product makes Belgian-style waffles, with the deeper pockets. If you want true Belgian, you need to use a recipe or mix with the right ingredients that will produce the airier, crisper outcome. I love the Krusteaz brand Belgian Waffle mix. It is easy to use, and produces great waffles. So far I'm happy with this model for waffles.
Is this a plug-in or battery operated?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Plug in. This is a deluxe model but love it!
Do you close the lid for pancakes?
DENISE P on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes I do. I first turn up the maker to the desired heat. Then I brush both sides of the irons with oil. Then I poured the batter. Close the lid. Same for making waffles. The Cuisinart works great! Enjoy.
Can you configure the plates to cook on a flat surface like a griddle, or are the only available cooking surfaces the waffle or the pancake circles? Someone mentioned grilled cheese and I wondered if they put the bread in the round pancake circles, or if you can make a flat surface the cooking surface.
A shopper on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No you cannot make a flat griddle-like configuration. The plates for the top and bottom are specific to top or bottom (not interchangeable). That's my husband's one big disappointment with this model.
Can you disable the beep?
Michelle B on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No - the beep is to indicate when the machine is hot enough to use or your waffles are done.
Do you have the waffle maker in walnut creek, ca?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do.
