Mini Waffles Abound!

Sunbeam CKSBWFMW3 Mini Waffle Maker

Some foods need to be made in batches. Waffles and pancakes fall into this category. And this goes double (or quadruple) when mini waffles are concerned. The Sunbeam CKSBWFMW3 Mini Waffle Maker is a specialty appliance that produces eight mini waffles per batch. While specialty appliances tend to take up more room than they are worth, waffle makers are worth a look, considering that waffles aren’t exactly easy to make in the oven. (And no, Eggo’s don’t count.) The mini waffle maker, not surprisingly, has a mini price to match–and you don’t even have to buy a whole batch to get the deal.

Inside-Out Waffles

Nordic Ware Egg Waffle Pan

Waffles are well known not only for being delicious, but also for having a distinctive shape. Every delicious pocket waits to be filled with syrup, powdered sugar or anything else eaters can come up with. But would it still be a waffle without the pockets? The Nordic Ware Egg Waffle Pan says yes. The uniquely-shaped pan creates inside-out waffles, better known as ‘egg-waffles’. Instead of drowning waffle-pockets in syrup, the idea is to roll it up–with or without a filling–and take it to go. Or better yet, tear apart the individual ‘eggs’ and share for a unique snack.

Eggo Storage Won’t Leggo

Helman WSC-054 Eggo Waffle Storage Container

It’s hard to consider an Eggo as something necessary to take extra steps to protect, but then again, when you get your hands on one it’s apparently hard to leggo. While a well-designed marketing catch phrase may have increased Eggo paranoia for all time, usually concern for the frozen waffles doesn’t extend to the freezer. The Helman WSC-054 Eggo Waffle Storage Container would like to change that. While it may not come with a catchy slogan, the storage container for the freezer saves space while keeping the precious waffles safe and sound in an airtight environment. Frost-free Eggos can finally be yours. (Or for whoever gets ‘em first.)

When Ice Cream Is On A Waffle…

The Smart Planet Original Waffle Cone Factory

When is a waffle maker not a waffle maker? When it’s a waffle cone maker. The Smart Planet Original Waffle Cone Factory produces thin waffles that are perfect for rolling up into cones (a cone-form is included). Similar to how pizza on a bagel magically allows for pizza to be eaten anytime, ice cream on a waffle means you can eat ice cream anytime. (Or would it be waffles anytime? Either way it is win/win.)

If you find it hard to justify owning a waffle maker that only produces waffle cones, just consider that it could also be used to make waffles for ice cream sandwiches See? Not a unitasker!

It’s Always A Circus In The Morning With The Original Circus Waffler

Nonstick Circus Waffle Maker by Smart Planet -- The Original Circus Waffler

Kids running around like monkeys in the morning? Tame them with the Nonstick Circus Waffle Maker by Smart Planet. Measuring 9.25-inches by 9.75-inches, the Original Circus Waffler makes three circus-themed Belgian-style waffles in less than four minutes.

Just like mornings can be on the blurry side (not too much for the kids, hopefully), so too can be this waffler. I see an elephant for sure, and I’m guessing the other two are a lion and a clown. But hey, the kids won’t care how abstract the waffles look when you cover them with butter and syrup. Add some whipped cream to top them off, and your calm little angels will be monkeys again in no time.
