I need a new waffle iron, preferably Belgian-style. My old electric one finally died, and was miserable to clean. I keep eyeing the 'restaurant' style irons that flip the waffles, but I can't figure out why that's an advantage, if both the top and bottom irons have heating elements, and they only seem to make one waffle at a time. I've also looked at the old-fashioned stove top versions. I have a counter-top induction burner and a gas cook top, but I've never used a non-electric iron. Obviously -- recommendations are needed.
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
