|Chef'sChoice® WafflePro® Model 830/830B|
1. Why should I buy "another" waffle maker? What makes the WafflePro® so special?
For the first time, waffles can be custom made by varying both the color and the texture. Now you can make delicious waffles with crisp exteriors and moist interiors that retain the flavor and aroma of freshly baked bread, or deeply baked waffles with a more uniform, crisp texture. And they'll be ready to eat in 90 seconds - even before the coffee is brewed!.
2. Why is the WafflePro® so fast?
Other waffle makers only have two heating elements (one on top and one on bottom). The WafflePro® has 4 heating elements, giving you the ability to customize your waffles just the way you like and letting you bake waffle after waffle with no "reheat" time in between. We call this the Quad® heating system. Because the elements on the WafflePro® are embedded in the waffle plates, superior heat is transferred, quickly and evenly.
3. Do I have to wait for the irons to come back up to temperature before I make the next waffle?
Not with the WafflePro®! Unlike other waffle makers, heat recovery is virtually instantaneous with the Quad® Baking System. You can start the next waffle immediately after completing the first. You can literally make waffles faster than you can eat them.
4. I noticed that the WafflePro® lid is loose, why?
This is a "floating hinge"; a feature that permits the lid to adjust as the waffle rises maintaining a uniform thickness as the waffle bakes.
5. Why should I pay $50 for your waffle maker?
The WafflePro® is a professional quality waffle maker, and its features make it the best in the world.
6. What is a Quad® Baking System?
The WafflePro® waffle maker has 4 (quad) heating elements, two on top and two on bottom. The 4 elements, together with special electronic controls, form the WafflePro® Quad® baking system, which controls both color and texture, producing waffles with incredible taste, texture and aroma in under 90 seconds.
7. Will I really get waffles every 90 seconds?
Yes, on the "Crispy Exterior/Moist Interior" setting, a typical waffle will be ready in 90 seconds. We invite you to time it. On the "Uniform Texture" setting, it will take about twice as long to bake a waffle since it's designed to bake the waffle at lower temperature for a longer period of time.
8. Why do I need a beeper in addition to the green ready light to tell me when the waffle is done?
The beeper on the Wafflepro® allows you to do other things in the kitchen or adjoining rooms while the waffle is baking. You don't need to hover over the waffle maker. This feature is particularly handy in the morning when everyone is in a hurry and many tasks have to be done.
9. Can the WafflePro® be stored upright?
Yes, the WafflePro® can be stored easily in an upright position to conserve space. The cord wraps conveniently underneath the base (see instruction manual).
