If there is one thing that is better than pancakes in the morning it is waffles. These delicious treats are not only easy to make but fairly nutritious and can help start a new day with a great mood. Unfortunately they cannot be made in a pan. A waffle maker is required and the good part is that they are affordable. They come in various sizes but they all have the same pattern. The important aspect is to have a nonstick interior and a 180 degrees opening so that both sides can be used. Out of all the models available only 10 waffle makers were selected.
