Another yard sale find. I've been told that the cast iron waffle makers that sit on top of the stove are the best. I'm not sure about this model, but it looks like it will do the job.
I have one like that, except mine isn't heavy enough to be cast iron, I don't think. It's black, but maybe it's cast aluminum? Dunno. I DO know it makes the BEST waffles! Clean it up and get it real greasy the first few times and let 'er smoke. After that just a light film of oil is all it takes and they pop right out.I got mine at a yard sale, too. Paid 2 bucks for it! Smokin' deal.
Mine is almost exactly like the one pictured. It's fantastic, and surprisingly useful for camping, though I did have to get some soot off of the temperature gauge windows after making waffles over a fire.I don't oil it, I oil the batter:1/2 c cornmeal or other non-wheat starch (oatmeal and buckwheat flour also work great, in any combination)1/2 t baking soda1/2 t salt (perhaps other flavorings, too, like sugar or spices)2 T oil, ghee, etc.1 C boiling waterstiradd 3 eggs, maybe a few T flax seeds, and stir againfold in 1 to 2 c sourdough starter
