One customer “went on a hunt for a Mickey waffle iron to bring some Disney magic to our kitchen” after a recent trip to Disney World. She took this one on a test run and says it’s “small and compact, works well, makes nice fluffy and pretty thick Belgian-style waffles.”

- Waffle Maker Master
Badly coated Teflon coating.
- BigBearKH
This waffle maker does not have a timer, although it goes off automatically. It is also limiting as it can only make one waffle per time and would therefore not be so quick.

An Overview On Mini Waffle Makers

While waffle makers are mainly designed to produce delicious waffles for breakfast, they can actually be used to cook a host of other foods as well. For example, you can use a waffle iron to make grilled cheese, hashbrowns, quesadillas and even pizza. If you have children at home, you may wish to go with a mini waffle maker to create smaller waffles that are easier for little mouths to eat.

Determine how many mini waffles the machine is able to produce. If you have one or two children in the home, you may be okay with a waffle maker that cooks a single waffle. Larger families, however, will want to go with a model that makes four waffles at once.

Check that the waffle maker’s plates have a nonstick coating. Waffles can be very difficult to get out without this coating.

Look to see if the mini waffle maker has any safety features. Does it have a cool-touch handle, non-skid rubber feet to protect your counter surface or a latching or locking handle?

An indicator light is also a must. You can’t open the waffle maker to check if the waffles are fully cooked. You’ll be relying on that indicator light to let you know when the popular breakfast item is done and ready for consumption. Some models go a step further and have lights that let you know when the unit is preheated, when it’s cooking and when the food is ready for removal.

Finally, determine whether you want a basic waffle shape, or one that resembles a character that your children are familiar with. For example, you can buy a mini waffle maker that creates Mickey Mouse-shaped waffles.

DWYM Fun Fact

While we can’t know for sure when the first waffle maker was invented, we do know it was in existence since at least the 13th century. A waffle recipe was found in a document entitled “Le Ménagier de Paris.” In it, the author talks about using an iron to make the waffles.

Here are a few more facts you may find interesting about waffles:

  • National Waffle Day is celebrated on Aug. 24 each year.
  • According to the Guinness World Records, the largest waffle weighed over 110 lbs. It was constructed in the Netherlands by Stichting Gouda Oogst.
  • Another Guinness World Record was set by Jeff and Jennifer Madden in Illinois for the tallest stack of waffles. It’s over 34 inches tall!
  • Cornelius Swarthout was the first to file a patent for a waffle maker. He did so back in 1869.

The Mini Waffle Maker Buying Guide

  • Some mini waffle makers don’t have an on/off switch. You’ll need to remember to unplug them as soon as you’re finished cooking the waffles.
  • Many mini waffle maker models have short cords, so you’ll need to use them close by an outlet.
  • It’s best to clean your mini waffle maker as soon as it cools down. Start with wiping the unit free of crumbs and excess oils using a damp cloth. If there were any spills on the exterior, you can get them next. Remove the plates and wash them in a pan of soapy dish water. If the plates aren’t removable, you’ll need to take care to wipe the plates down with a soapy dish rag followed by a rag that is only wet with water. Allow the waffle maker to air dry before you put it away.
  • Mini waffle makers vary in price based on design and the number of waffles the unit is able to produce at one time. The DASH Mini Waffle Maker is basic in design and only makes one waffle, which is why it is one of the most affordable models on the market. The BLACK+DECKER Flip Waffle Maker and the Disney Mickey Mini Waffle Maker are moderately priced. Although they also only make one waffle, the BLACK+DECKER is more complex in design and the Disney model makes waffles that look like Mickey Mouse. The Burgess Brothers Nonstick Mini Waffle Maker is able to make four mini waffles at once, which is why it’s more costly.
