* I was sent this waffle maker for free, but rest assured, all words and opinions are my own 🙂
A couple of weeks ago I received a waffle maker from Vonshef, and this Sunday, I finally had the chance to test it out!
I’d never made waffles before, so was fully expecting this to be a complete and utter mess, but, spoiler alert, it wasn’t! After finding a nice & simple recipe online, buying all the supplies I needed, and preparing all the ingredients, it was finally time to get it plugged in & switched on. The instructions suggest giving it a trial heat to burn off the production residue, and it’s always good to check it actually works before wasting any of that precious batter mixture.
Right, so now we know it heats, brush the plates with a little oil/butter, switch it back on and wait for the green light to go off to signal the correct temperature has been reached. You can now pour the mixture into the middle of the bottom plates. Try and do this as quickly as you can as it starts to cook straight away. I’d recommend pouring straight from the bowl, or using a large ladle. Don’t worry about making it even as it gets spread out when you put the lid down. Now, sit back and wait. I’d give it 5 minutes before lifting the lid, with an oven glove, to have a little check. You can then switch it off and open once the waffles have reached your desired golden colouring. Using a plastic or wooden utensil, lift the waffles and pop onto a plate.
