Rome Industries Solid Cast Iron Old Fashioned Waffle Iron : Cast iron waffle iron

Nice item, but i had to grind the ends of the handles down to make both halves close and the tongue and groove (which prevents both halves to slide sidewards) to fit. The item should not have passed qc checks like this.

While needing good oven mitts to use and little taxing to get going with (butter or oil in the mixture and curing of the iron is key) – once you get the technique down it produces nicely sized waffles that can be as crisp as you like. The iron is also quite easy to clean afterwards if you’ve cured it properly.

I have had this for more than 2 years now. It is cast iron and until you have treated it well with oil and formed a coating it will not be nonstick. On arrival it needed a good clean and it was silver. I then brushed oil and placed on gas stove top with flame until no fumes, coated again and repeated this with each half waffle plates until colour changed from silver to almost black and it now became non stick. In general when making waffles i place each part on two stove top flames( each half of waffle maker on its own flame) let the halves be hot, will have oil and silicon brush on standby, brush on a bit of oil on each half and pour dough on one half and take other half and close and i get nice golden waffles each time.

I’m delighted with this product. Was apprehensive about first use expecting some sticking, but i seasoned it really well beforehand and it worked like a dream.

Was a bit put off due to other review but thought i’d go for it as it was part of a wedding anniversary gift (last minute as usual). Spent a bit of time oiling and burning off to season it. Much like any wok i’ve had in the past. Prepared several different batter mixes to test out. It took about three attempts to get it right with temp and amount of oil in each section. A teaspoon of veg oil in each section, heated each half separately with oil until smoking, carefully with two gloves put halfs together. Poured just over half ladle of batter mix in and closed. Left on one side for four mins then flipped over for three.

Received this for christmas and have just made a lovely batch of waffles. This waffle iron needs time and effort put into it to get it ready for waffle cooking. I melted off the protective paraffin wax coating in the oven (caution – generates lots of smoke as a result). I then placed each half on a portable camping stove outside (i can’t emphasise this enough) and melted a small bit of lard and spread the melted fat around with a silicone brush ensuring all surfaces (front and back) were coated. I then left to heat up until smoking. Each half stayed on the heat for a further 30 mins to ensure the fat was fully cooked in. Did this a couple of times and had a fabulous non stick coating. I used one of the recipes included with the waffle iron to great success with lovely golden waffles which dropped out of the waffle iron with no fuss.
