Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker Review

One of the newest and most popular additions to the Cuisinart kitchen appliances line of home waffle makers, the WMR-CA can produce restaurant-quality waffles at a fraction of the price. The device comes with a weighted, dual-sided griddle that can make one large Belgian waffle in less than two minutes. Each waffle that the Cuisinart WMR-CA produces is more than enough to serve one person, and the waffles can also be broken apart into four pieces if you want to serve multiple people.

The device doesn’t require any extra cleaning in between uses, so as soon as one baking cycle is completed, the device can begin cooking another waffle almost immediately. The Cuisinart WMR-CA comes with a wide range of baking controls, and that allows the user to make precise adjustments to the browning and consistency of the waffle. If you prefer light, fluffy waffles, you can set the device to a low heat setting, and the waffle maker will take care of the rest. If you prefer a much darker, crunchier waffle, the Cuisinart can also be set to a very high heat setting to achieve your preferred consistency.

Features and Benefits

One part of the Cuisinart WMR-CA that many users like is the device’s easy cleanup and storage. After you’ve finished enjoying your waffles, the device significantly reduces the amount of time you have to spend scrubbing the griddle by layering several non-stick films over the entire heating surface.

After clean up, many users prefer to store their device in a cupboard instead of leaving it out on a countertop. Normally, storing a waffle maker in a small cabinet would be difficult because it would have to lie on its face. The Cuisinart WMR-CA helps make storage simpler by allowing the waffle maker to be stored vertically. When the device is stood on its end, it will fit into very small spaces, so you don’t have to worry about losing cupboard space to a bulky appliance.
