Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of waffles can I cook with this?
You're pretty much limited only by your imagination and cooking ability. I shared some of my ideas here.
How long does it take to cook a stuffed waffle with this?
Times vary slightly depending on the batter or interior ingredients, but typically you want to cook your waffle for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. A rule of thumb is to estimate between 5 and 6 minutes of total cook time per waffle.
Have you tried using gluten-free flours to make stuffed waffles with this? If so have you found one kind of flour to be better than another?
Yes, I have used gluten-free flours to make chicken stuffed waffles, palak paneer stuffed waffles, and my kale, feta, and sun-dried tomato stuffed waffles. Most gluten-free flours should work just fine on any kind of stuffed waffle, but the two brands I've used in particular are Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour and King Arthur Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix, both of which are sold at my local grocery stores. I have only had success with the all-purpose flours. I haven't tried rice or almond flours, but I once tried with a batter made from coconut flour and could never get it to coagulate.
Do I need to use cooking oil?
Even with the nonstick coating, your waffles may stick to the pan. If this happens, you may not have enough fat or too much sugar in your batter. To avoid sticking, you will want to apply a small amount of cooking oil (either spray or with a brush) before cooking. Repeat this application before every third waffle cooked in succession.
Is nonstick coating safe?
Our nonstick, PTFE coating is FDA-approved food safe.
Can I make regular waffles on this?
The waffles made by The Wonderffle Stuffed Waffle Iron do not necessarily have to be cooked with other foods inside. You can use only waffle batter. The waffles, however, will be larger than your typical flat waffles, having a thickness of about 2 ½ inches.
Can't I just use my conventional waffle maker to make stuffed waffles?
The Internet and blogs abound with pictures and recipes for "stuffed waffles" or "waffle sandwiches" made on a conventional waffle maker. While the cook's skill and creativity are ultimately responsible for a great dish, there are physical limits to today's waffle makers, namely, they're meant to cook something with very little thickness. Try cooking a fried chicken stuffed waffle in your waffle maker at home. Not happening.
Because the Wonderffle Stuffed Waffle Iron makes 2 ½-inch thick waffles, you can fit a substantial amount of food between the batter. It's even better at keeping more liquid ingredients like whipped chocolate or even ice cream inside the waffle without running.
Will this work on my induction stove?
The cooking surfaces of The Wonderffle Stuffed Waffle Iron are made from cast aluminum, which doesn't work on induction cooktops. I think making a new model that can be used on induction cookers is a great idea. Please contact me to let me know that you would be interested in a new model that can be used on induction stoves (such as cast iron) so that I will know how to prioritize it.
