Holiday Gift Idea! The Chef's Choice WafflePro 854!

I love waffles but I never make them because I didn't have a waffle maker. I do not like the frozen waffles so I do without unless I go to a restaurant where they serve them. But, luckily, now I can make my own waffle from home with my new Chef's Choice Classic WafflePro 854!

I received this wonderful appliance and now I can't get enough of it! After trying it a few times, I wondered how I lived without it. It is easy to use. Easy to clean and makes tasty waffle in minutes.

The set up was easy. Just plus it in and warm it up. I cleaned it before I started with a damp towel. The instructions were easy. Just plug in and wait. A little green light comes on when it is ready to go. You can choose to have your waffles crisp with a moist interior or with a uniform texture by just flipping a switch. There is also a setting button to control the color you want your waffles.

Since I have never ever made waffles in my life, I had no idea what to do so I improvised. First I found a waffle mix at the grocery store. I think in the future, I will buy fancy mix or make my own though. I mixed it up and turned on the WafflePro. It took about 5 minutes to heat up and it beeped and the ready light went on.

I poured some batter into the Wafflepro and closed it. I chose to have my waffles crispy and brown. About 3 minutes later they were done. My first batch was a little off because I had not put enough batter in but hubby gave the waffle a thumbs up. He actually loved the crispiness.

My second batch, I put in a little too much batter and it spilled out a little but the clean up was easy. These came out so much better and were moist and delicious. I was really surprised how easy ti was to make yummy waffles in minutes. The waffles came out easily because of the non-stick coating.

The Classic WafflePro® 854 makes 4 waffles at a time which is a time saver. If you had a bunch of people to feed, breakfast would be done lickety split with the Quad Baking System. The precise temperature control ensures consistent even baking and the floating hinge and latching handle guarantees uniform waffle thickness for perfect waffles.

I loved this little waffle maker because it makes my life easier. And, I no longer have to buy frozen waffles. I can have fresh waffles in minutes. Now all I have to do is perfect a delicious waffle mix or find one that I can buy.

It is the perfect Christmas gift for anyone on your list who loves cooking and waffles. The Classic WafflePro® Model 854 is available for $99.99 US and $119.99 Canada through leading department stores, mail-order catalogs, and specialty stores.


  1. The Wafflepro looks like a great thing to own. My kids would love it if I made them waffles at home. I think I will be looking into purchasing one.

  2. My hubby and I are on Gluten Free diets; so, I would make some awesome Rice flour waffles.

  3. I have not had home made waffles for years and years. .After reading this I would like to have one!

  4. This is a great waffle maker! we make waffles all the time at my house and it would be great to have a waffle pro to help make them!!

  5. I love that this makes 4 waffles at a time and is so fast. I like my waffles crispy also. I heard that brownies are wonderful made in a waffle maker, lots of crispy goodness!

  6. This looks like a wonderful waffle maker. My family loves waffles, and my current waffle maker cooks slightly unevenly. It is time to invest in a new one, and this seems like it would fit the bill. Thanks for the review.

  7. I am not a fan of waffles but my daughter and grandchildren are. She would love this one for the family
