If you have been around here for awhile, you know that I did a major kitchen overhaul in recent years. Not a remodel. A pots, pans, utensils, textiles, and appliances redo. :)
I did so much research on what materials are safe. I threw out all the teflon, nylon, metal, and most of the plastic.
For pots and pans, I invested in cast iron by Lodge and Le Creuset (outlet store!). Enameled and raw.
For cookie sheets and pizza pans, we went with this baking stone made in the USA.
I bought bamboo utensils and cutting boards along with enameled stone baking dishes by Le Creuset at TJ Maxx.
My muffin tins were replaced by 100% silicone muffin cups by Regency.
Water bottles were replaced by stainless steal Thermos bottles.
But one thing was amiss. Mr. Waffle & Pancake (that's my hubs) was desperately missing the waffle maker that I threw out. Teflon, no good! So he set out on his own mission to find a safer waffle maker for Saturday morning breakfasts.
He came up with this Oster Ceramic Flip Waffle Maker, and I wanted to give him several months to try it out before we gave it a review. And now I've been given the green light to recommend this kitchen appliance to you.
Hubs says it doesn't get quite as hot as he is used to, but that's not a deal-breaker. It makes both soft and crunchy waffles depending on the batter you use. It releases waffles cleanly and cleans up well. I like that it stores vertically, taking up less space.
The 4 stars on Amazon is right in line with our thoughts. I love that this is not teflon. And the fun colors like red, pink, and brown are extra cool.
In case you are wondering, this is hub's favorite waffle recipe. And here is a simple waffle recipe free of egg and milk from back in the day.
Hope this helps!
