Waffles hold a certain appeal for some individuals. Chances are, just saying the word "waffles" brings a particular image to mind (and a rumble to the stomach). Be they Belgian waffles, with their deep pockets waiting to be filled with deliciousness, or chocolate waffles with their deliciousness woven right into the batter, waffles present a challenge in that there are so many possibilities, yet only one breakfast per day.
Waffle evolution has had a long and twisty course. First, there was the waffle iron; somebody poured batter in it and all was well. Eventually somebody took a freshly cooked waffle and rolled it up, inventing the ice cream cone. After that, not much happened until one enterprising fellow ruined his wife's waffle maker and changed athletic footwear forever. Now, there is a new course set for the home kitchen with upside-down, inside-out waffles.
Deliciousness may have its consequences, but that doesn't mean there aren't any workarounds. For waffle deliciousness in particular, the answer was to put them in stick form. With waffles converted into a shape that could conveniently be dipped, waffles could suddenly be easily enjoyed on the go. The masses rejoiced. However, all was not well in waffle-land.
Waffle sticks may commonplace in the wild, but at home they are rare to be seen. Enter the Hamilton Beach 26041 Mess Free Belgian Waffle Maker. Featuring a deep grid design that encourages waffle stick stability the countertop appliance bakes waffles … Read more
Breakfast in the morning is essential, and the same could be said about lunch.
Breakfast comes in all shapes and forms. It could be something obtained through a drive-through window, a healthy snack on the go, or even a long drawn-out session punctuated by a breakfast buffet. Yet even with all these breakfast options, there exists a strange clan that ignores the most important meal of the day and forges on, dodging hunger until lunch.
Perhaps this avoidance of the first meal can be attributed to simple indecision in the morning. After all, even the easiest tasks are strained when … Read more
The NFL has done a pretty good job of making its brand known. It seems everywhere one looks a logo from a football franchise can be found. What was once mostly limited to apparel is now available on anything. Even on a grilled cheese sandwich.
What you get from the Pangea Brands NFL Logo Sandwich and Waffle Grill may not be the most obvious next step in the evolutionary chain of licensed sports memorabilia, but it might be the tastiest. The clamshell countertop appliance cooks the logo of your favorite team directly on the bread. The nonstick plates are removable, … Read more
The haze of morning has inspired a great many improvements in kitchen gadgetry. Now, when we wake, we no longer have to wait for our coffee to be brewed; programmable timers have seen to that. The coffeemaker was, of course, the most obvious kitchen appliance to set on automatic. (Otherwise how would anything else ever get done?) But after we are fueled with coffee, next our attention turns to food. Yet breakfast still can't make itself.
The Wolfgang Puck 1,200-Watt Self-Rotating Waffle Baker won't make your breakfast for you, but it's a start. Featuring the ability … Read more
Waffles, being part of a healthy breakfast--depending what you serve them with--have a welcome spot at the dining table. Delicious and sometimes nutritious, the fun food can be prepared in many ways. When hot off the waffle grill, they make excellent platforms for everything from fresh fruit to powdered sugar. They can even be used in more savory applications. The versatile circles of deliciousness not only have endless possibilities in flavor, but they can also be made into finger food.
Kitchen appliances have grown to be incredibly versatile machines capable of easily making anything from soup to roasted nuts. Having the right tool for the job ensures that whatever you have a craving for, a kitchen appliance can handle it. Unfortunately, sometimes we just need to settle. Want waffles, but don't have a waffle maker? Pancakes might just have to do instead. Unless, of course, you have one appliance that can do both (and a whole bunch of other stuff, too).
Maybe an empty stomach doth place a halo around this waffle maker. But boy, does this look scrumptious. Even better dripping with golden maple syrup. But back to the machine. What makes this interesting is that creator Triangular Concept has taken a novel approach to waffle making.
Rather than opt for the familiar squares and circles, this one turns out 9-inch-long waffle lollies in less than two minutes each. Not only does this mean less cutlery to wash up (hurray), it makes for convenient party food on a stick.
About the only unappetizing fare here is the pricey 715 euros ($… Read more
