I love Belgian waffles, so I am looking to get a good waffle iron. Any recommendations, which are the best makers?

Preferably it should make 4 waffles at the time, other than that I don't have many requirement.

I've found these so far:

Have you looked into a "turning" one that turns upside down? That?s how the professionals do it ... for example the Krups FDD95D?

Only two waffles with that one, but the "turn around"-thingies are supposed to produce better results.

Have not looked at those yet, the FDD95D looks good!

I own some Calphalon items, they're really good, and even my kids can't damage it.
Can't seem to find retailers for Calphalon in europe.

The turning Krups is the favorite at this point, even if it only makes two at the time, after all, quality is more important than quantity..

Couldn't find that exact model here in NA, but the closest match I found (KWB110OB) has a MSRP of 400$
:jawdrop:

Can't justify that unfortunately :(

Truck-stop sized! Never been much of a waffle guy, but I'd sure love to try these.

Forgot to post, but the KitchenAid artisan waffle maker has arrived. Been using it for about a month, it's huge, it weighs a ton but it makes incredibly awesome waffles!!

Will post pictures later.
