Exploring the World of Commercial Waffle Makers


Waffles are typically associated with breakfast, but waffle makers can be used to make lunches, dinners and desserts. From pizza crusts and brownies to quesadillas and burgers, waffle makers can cook almost any type of food. Shopping for a new waffle maker shouldn’t be overwhelming. Use this checklist below to learn the facts before making a purchase.

Types of Waffle Makers

Waffle bakers are available with round, square and rectangular shaped grids. They can produce waffles ranging from ½” to 1⅛” thick.

Single Waffle Makers
If you plan to use your waffle baker only occasionally or don’t need to cook in volume, choose a single waffle maker. This type of waffle maker can produce between 20 and 35 waffles per hour.

Dual Waffle Makers
Pick a dual model if you need to use your waffle maker constantly and/or require a higher output. Dual waffle makers can cook between 40 and 60 waffles per hour.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing 

Grid Material
When shopping for a waffle maker, pay close attention to grid construction. Although  grids can be made of a number of different substances, most are constructed from aluminum or nonstick materials. If you need to produce items quickly, choose aluminum grids. This type of grid heats up and bakes fast, but is prone to scratching. If you are looking for easy cleanup, pick a nonstick grid waffle maker. Nonstick grids are easy to clean and release waffles easily (reducing the number of broken waffles) but their coating is prone to chipping and scratching. Both aluminum and nonstick grids must be washed by hand.

Electrical Requirements
Think about where you will place your waffle baker before you buy and check the power source nearby. Any unit above 120 volts cannot be plugged into a standard outlet.
