    Reason #2: valuable safety information! Example from the enclosed manual:

    Problem: The appliance is not working.
    Cause: Appliance not plugged in.
    Solution: Insert the plug into the wall outlet.

    Reason #3: I hear that waffle makers are excellent at making waffles.

    Here's another one from the same manual:

    Problem: Waffle not fully cooked.
    Cause: Cooking time too short.
    Solution: Allow waffle to cook for longer.

    Very lovely waffles ..

    Why I do not need or want a waffle iron ?

    It would sit un-used ..

    One of my daughter in laws owns a lovely Creperie wherein, she has Waffles on the Carte ! If I want waffles, I shall give her a call and reserve a table !

    Most of us don't have the luxury of a relative with a place to get waffles. As a matter of fact, there aren't many places in our area that have good waffles. There are many "chains" that make waffles, even one called Waffle House, but you really have to enjoy saw dust to eat the waffles there. There are absolutely no places that have true Belgian Liege waffles. So if I want good quality and taste, they have to be made at home.

    Wonder if my T-Fal Panini Grill will do the job nicely. I can't see buying a waffle iron. I very seldom eat waffles. :headshake:

    Yes I know. Two different kinds though. Most places use a waffle batter because it is cheap and doesn't require the effort and expense of making a yeast dough. I bet those batters most often come from a premix.You and I both know that unless you are going to a high end restaurant, the food we prepare at home is far superior to most restaurants/diners.

    I think you're good to go with the quesadilla and might get away with a yeast dough waffle, but I'm pretty sure a batter waffle would leave you with a mess. Just saying.
