OT - Waffle maker

Grandkids over last weekend and our wedding present waffle iron finally quit, you would figure you could get more than 43 years out of one of these things wouldn't you?
Any one have any thoughts, likes or dislikes?

(no comment from VI please, I do not want waffles in the shape of the great State of Texas, nice as that may be)

  • My wedding was only 3 years ago and we got an Alclad one from William Sanoma. It's pricey, but built like a tank and makes great waffles, we love it.

    I like the All Clad and this new Breville seems pretty sweet. It lets you adjust the doneness similar to a toaster. It's pricey too.

    I have a Waring Pro bought online.  Love it.  Fast and good ability to adjust the "doneness".  Really like it.

    And a great Waffle Recipe: Maryland Cream Waffles"  I substitute some oil for some of the melted butter.... still works great.
    MARYLAND CREAM WAFFLES 
    2 c. flour
    2 tsp. sugar
    1/2 tsp. salt
    4 tsp. baking powder
    2 eggs
    1 3/4 c. milk
    1/2 c. melted butter

    Mix and sift dry ingredients together; add milk which has been mixed with beaten egg yolks. Add melted butter. Beat until all lumps have disappeared and you have a smooth creamy mixture. Fold in beaten egg whites. Put correct amount of batter in preheated waffle irons. Bake about 3 minutes or until steam has ceased issuing from the iron. Serve piping hot.

    Did you know that the first pair of those shoes, before there was a Nike, was in fact, made with a waffle iron? Phil Knight was just an average runner for the University of Oregon when his coach, Bill Bowerman, invented the Waffle Trainer, molding the soles on a waffle iron. They co-founded Nike starting with that product.

    Bowerman's wife wasn't too happy about the waffle iron. But I guess she got over it.

    EDIT: Okay, my timing was a bit off, but close enough. It was a long time ago. :)

    I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.

    @flemster - The Waring Pro 600 double is the right size and shape and cooks two at a time, SWMBO insists waffles must be round (I detect an Eggo childhood) she was all set to buy it today. @JerkChicken - thanks for the suggestion, had not looked at WS. Everything else we've bought there was great. 
    I like the square units (thanks @Eggcelsior) and either the Breville or the Cuisinart have some great features including multiple griddle plates.
