Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Waffles consistently came out crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, and though the browning control didn’t produce quite as much range as any of our other picks, the Hamilton Beach 26009 never burned or undercooked a waffle.

What reviewers didn't like

Some aspects feel more flimsily built. In particular, the slider that controls browning has a lot of play to it (just like the one on our other budget pick), which means figuring out what setting the machine is on is sometimes difficult
