21 Chaffle Recipes That Will Change Your Life Forever (2)

Before you start, I recommend picking up a mini waffle maker. The most popular one is this Dash Mini Waffle Maker, but if you don’t want to wait several weeks to get yours, this Nostagia Mini Waffle Maker takes second place. The key to a great chaffle is in its crispiness, so the need for a non-Belgian waffle maker is very important. If you want to have a full-sized waffle that’s almost identical to Waffle House, this All Clad Waffle Maker is the Cadillac of all waffle makers with its 7 browning settings. This Cuisinart one is a solid second place and a much cheaper option. Don’t forget the waffle tongs!
