Waffle Irons Thu, 04/15/04 2:36 PM (permalink)
Hey folks I need to buy a new waffle iron. My old one of 10 years bit the dust. I have heard ans read that the irons fron Villa Ware are good but would like to know what you think.

      I enjoy the Cuisinart (non Belgian variety).

        Saturday morning waffles are a tradition at our house, and I've got three irons. An ancient Sunbeam, and two from Villa Ware - one makes heartshapes in a circular pattern and the other is belgian. I like the Villa Ware irons because you can adjust the crispness and also because they beep when finished. The teflon coating works well except when I've got cottage cheese in the batter.

            Hi Meowzer -

            It adds another taste and dimension to the texture. The curds melt and make it more rich. I do the same thing with pancakes. I don't have a set recipe since I've been winging it for so long... but it goes something like:

            1 cup flour
            1 tablespoon baking powder
            1 tablespoon sugar
            1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
            1 egg
            1 cup milk
            1/4 cup cooking oil
            1/2 cup cottage cheese

            Mix dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine. You could also just do your favorite waffle batter, then add cottage cheese and see how it turns out. Let me know if you like it!!
