Shapes, designs, styles and amounts – these are the main things to look for in a waffle maker, whether you check the local store or you buy online. However, the actual thickness is often ignored, yet it will seriously affect the final outcome. If the grid is too shallow, the result will be a thin waffle. Generally speaking, waffles should be a bit crispy. The deeper this grid is, the thicker your waffles will be. Consider the temperature too, not to mention the batter and cooking time. Therefore, waffles can get crispy or fluffy. Exercise a little before making a final decision.
