What reviewers didn't like

Priced a bit higher than budget models (although not the most expensive on the market)
The plastic tray in this product is not that durable
Top and sides of iron become too hot to touch while baking
Slow to heat up. Although the unit works well, some reviewers don’t like how slow it is to heat up. Preheating takes a while so be patient when waiting for that indicator light to light up.
Gets too hot when cooking
The overflow tray is inadequate and overflows with batter quickly
