Here are a couple simple tips to ensure you never have a dirty waffle maker again.
- DO NOT use cooking spray on a non-stick waffle maker. Big mistake. If you look at the waffle maker in my picture closely, you will see cooking spray residue. Hello… did you know that the instructions that come with the waffle maker actually say that you are not supposed to use cooking spray? What to do instead? Get a stick of margarine and coat the top and bottom before each waffle. Save yourself the pain of causing build up on your waffle maker!
- Steam clean with a paper towel- yes, you read that right. When you are finished making waffles, simply turn off your waffle maker and insert a couple very damp paper towels into the waffle maker and let the steam cleaning begin. Let sit for a couple of minutes.
- Repeat if needed and/or use the paper towel to get in the crevices if a small amount as stuck on. Chocolate chips are notorious for sticking behind on a waffle maker, and while we’ve been making a lot of Chocolate Chocolate Waffles… the thing still needs to get clean.
