I have one. These things will help you make friends and influence people. Of course, you have to convince them to be at your place for breakfast, but really, once that's done, this machine will handle the rest.

I have a similar version the one that makes two waffles at the same time, good product but I wish the grids were removable for easy washing, I assume this is a similar non-removable design.

Where did I put my my quill and inkpot?

Yeah, but does it make Waffelets or Omffles? That's what's most important.

And you shouldn't factor in Prime, because not everyone pays the $80 for "free" shipping.

Why don't people check other sites, too? It's hardly like Amazon is always the cheapest.

This looks tempting. I have a similar model that only makes the waffles but it's a pain in the ass to clean because the plates are not removable. Based on the pictures it looks like the plates are removable in this one.

Update: Ugh, never mind, after studying the photos more closely, one side is for omelets and the other for waffles.

I too have the 2 waffle version. Does a great job. Haven't bought eggos since.

I saw a guy put turkey stuffing in the same one on Diners Drive-ins and Dives once and tried it. It was a hit at our last thanksgiving.

Definitely worth the buy.

I have both the single-waffle version of this (refurb bought at Woot many moons ago), as well as the double-waffle version (refurb bought at another deal-a-day site), and with the two of them I've done waffles for 48 people.

I have no idea how well the omelet side works, but overall they make a decent product, and I love the waffles that come off those irons.

No, silly wabbit! $75. period.
Then, [I] used free 2-day Prime shipping at the Mother site. Not $75 used!! ;-D

I wonder how long it takes to warm up. Gonna look that up!

We looked at the WMR300 Belgian Waffle/Omelet Maker and really like the live demonstration at XYZ store, but decided to get the WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker instead, since we don't eat omelets as much as waffles. Making 2 waffles at a time means we eat together at the same time. And, we make white flour and wheat flour waffles, which are an inch thick. Plus, there are plenty of options besides using just syrups. Some are: Chicken and waffles, creamed chipped beef on waffles, and waffles with ice cream, to name a few.

The Waring Pro Waffle Makers are easy to use, but it takes some trial and error to get the right amount poured into each waffle plate. Clean-up is pretty easy, unless batter gets around the handle inset. The timer can be set to whatever doneness you prefer, but both waffles come out the same, so both of you had better like the same brownness. And, the included "on/off" toggle switch, two LED indicator lights for "heating" and "ready", with three audio beep tones are darned handy.

Finally: These are great waffle makers, and the WMR300 being sold on Woot at $84.99 shipped is an excellent deal! If we needed another waffle maker, I'd buy this one as a second waffle maker just to have the omelet option on occasion.

it looks like you can put in pancake mix in the omelet section and make a thick pancake.

You could just buy a Roomba and then mount today's Wafflemaker on top of it? That would be similar? Right?!

It takes 6 minutes for it to heat up:
The waffle/omelet maker will now begin the preheating process. This should take approximately six minutes. When the waffle/omelet maker is ready for baking, the green indicator light located on the omelet cover of the unit will light, and the waffle/omelet maker will sound six beeps.

I bought one of these from Sam's club for this same price. I returned it after three failed attempts to make waffles that did not stick. Didn't matter whether I used butter, oil, or spray. Stick, stick, and stick.

Not very practical for a family. For everyone to get waffles, you need both sides working toward that end. Even with both sides going, you still need to put finished ones in the oven or all but one gets cold waffles.

This seems too thick to be considered an omelette. It would be hard to get it done through. Seems more like quiche. Not sure how often you'd serve omelettes and waffles both. We usually have one or the other.

Pass -- several times over.

I have an old woot refurb (r0x0rz) of the single Wafflemaker from Waring and it works great.. EXCEPT, dang.. I was eating two waffles plus syrup every day for breakfast.. I'd make 'em on Sunday and freeze them for the week.. Until I did the math and realized before syrup I was committing myself to 900 calories (450 a pop..).. YIKES. So, the question of the hour is, does anyone have any good low calo.. I can't believe I'm typing that.. But, yeah.. Any reasonably healthy waffle type things?

Also, I don't recommend the cookie dough in a waffle iron trick.. It didn't work for me (despite prodigious amounts of non-stick Pam spray..) and I was digging out cookie bits for a week.. urgh.

We've had no problems with our double waffle maker at all (not the waffle/omelet maker) in the 3 months we've had it. We spray the plates every third use while they're heating up, and waffles don't stick. We even got a lifetime warranty with ours from the store, not the manufacturer.

Indeed. I got my Waring single waffle maker a few years ago from here, way before Amazon even thought about buying Woot.
That one's still working like a charm, so I don't have a need for another one.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm of the type that ignores calories as long as I'm using real, unprocessed, and traditional ingredients (like butter instead of refined vegetable oil), and I'm not overweight. After reading some books and researching the industrial food system, I'm convinced calorie counts are nearly useless.

I like to ask the following question: Would you rather have a 400 calorie pancake made with trans-fat containing Bisquick, or a 500 calorie homemade pancake made with organic whole wheat flour (or 75/25 white/whole wheat flour ratio as a nice compromise) and another five simple organic ingredients?

It looks the same, but has a different model number. It's a closeout. I won't need one, because I have a belgian waffle maker and a GT Express that makes good omelets, or I can make them on the stovetop.

I like this one from sellout.woot.com http://sellout.woot.com/offers/waring-professional-belgian-waffle-maker for $39.99.

Remember though, Waring is owned by CONair, which has proven time and again to live down to its name "con", and leave the sucker holding a dud product with no customer service.

Luckily, I haven't needed customer service on the Waring Belgian waffle maker, and have developed an amazing waffle recipe.
