Features and Benefits

The Chef’s Choice M840 Waffle Pro Express gives the user compete control over the taste and consistency of the waffles, letting them alter the waffle’s flavor, texture, and color simply by twisting a knob. For texture, the device has several settings that range from fluffy to crunchy. While fluffy waffles take a lot less time to produce, many people prefer crunchier waffles because they have an enhanced taste. Crispy waffles also offer a much more uniformly baked interior, so you won’t encounter any cold spots or pockets of uncooked batter inside the waffles.

The professional-grade unit offers several beepers that sound off when the waffles are ready, when the baking has started, and when the batter is ready to be added. This allows the user to focus on preparing other parts of the meal instead of constantly minding the waffle maker. This also takes much of the guesswork out of waffle making because you’ll always know exactly what time to apply the batter, and when the waffles are finally ready to be eaten. With other waffle makers, it can be easy to leave the waffles in for too long and overcook them, but the Chef’s Choice M840 makes sure that your waffles are cooked to your exact specifications. The device really shines when catering to a large group of people. The device can be set to continuous use mode, which allows the user to make a new waffle every two minutes without cleaning up in between.


  • The Chef’s Choice M840 Waffle Pro Express comes with a detailed instruction booklet that also includes a section with several recipes that you can try out on your waffle maker

  • The Chef’s Choice M840 Waffle Pro Express has a small light attached to the front of the device that signals the user at the optimal time to add the batter.

  • The device can be stored upright, which saves space and makes cleanup easier and faster
  • The user can adjust the bake setting by choosing between the device’s crisp exterior and moist interior settings
