Waffle makers are a good way to make waffles. (Just try making a waffle without one!) Not only are they convenient and easy to use, they also do most of the work for you; just plug it in and pour in the batter. But what did they do in the time before power outlets?
Long before waffle makers plugged into the wall, people were making waffles with something like the NordicWare 15040 Cast Aluminum Stovetop Belgium Waffle Iron. The old-timey contraption is designed for use directly on the stovetop, allowing waffle eaters everywhere the opportunity to create delicious waffles without the need for electricity. (Or at least without plugging in an additional appliance.) Featuring a folding design that unhinges for easy storage, the old-fashioned waffle iron offers a fun, new (to us) take on the classic breakfast (or lunch, or dinnerâ€¦) fare.
Of course, since the waffle maker does not take up any room on the countertop, there is nothing saying that the new-fangled plug-in variety cannot be in operation at the same time. And since a waffle maker for use on the stove has the potential to double the waffle output, that is a good thing for waffle eaters of any era.
