There are a number of considerations in choosing which waffle iron to buy for your kitchen. First, decide whether you want to make traditional style waffles or the thicker Belgian waffles. Some waffle makers can make them in fun shapes like heart waffles or Mickey Mouse ears. A professional waffle iron, or a commercial iron, is heavier-duty and sometimes faster cooking, but is often larger and more expensive as well. Be sure to read some reviews before choosing your breakfast apparatus.
