Waffles are enjoyed the world over either as a treat, dessert, or as part of a main meal, such as breakfast. Who can resist delicious, warm waffles with delectable sauce and toppings? Making them requires some special equipment, though. A professional waffle maker should possess certain technical features in order to yield the best possible final product. Investing in a professional waffle maker will be well worth the mouth-watering results. So, without further ado, let’s delve into the wonderful world of waffles!
Characteristics of an exceptional Waffle Maker
You will find that the best commercial waffle maker system contains cast-iron plates. This is because cast-iron equals incomparable thermal inertia. Normal thin plates with a non-stick coating, such as Teflon, struggle to retain adequate temperature and effective heat transfer. Also, traditional aluminium and cast aluminium plates have negative toxic effects on health.
The plates must be thick enough to accumulate enough heat to cook evenly, which is especially important for waffles which require homogeneous, gentle cooking in a hot mould. Fixed plates are designed for heavy duty usage, such as those found in an industrial and commercial waffle maker, while interchangeable plates are commonly used in household waffle machines.
Waffle irons need to supply enough power to penetrate through the thickness of the cast-iron plates. When there’s an adequate power supply, there’s no need to flip the waffle machine over. (Some waffle machines need to be flipped, because they do not have enough power to bake the top of the waffles).
An accurate thermostat is responsible for effective and precise temperature control and subsequent uniform, smooth baking outcomes. The final product should be neither too runny nor burned in any places.
Regarding the time factor, a good waffle machine will cook thoroughly in a short time period. Depending on the recipe and the shape of the waffle, it shouldn’t take longer than 3 to 3:30 mins to cook a waffle at an average temperature of 230°C.

Both the single and double versions house independent controls and are exceptionally simple to operate.
The cast iron mould plates are designed for producing perfect waffles which do not stick to the metal.
The Roller Grill range of professional waffle equipment is suitable for all types of waffle dough; whether frozen, pre-cooked frozen waffles or fresh, homemade waffle batter.
For traditional Belgian waffles, the following models are recommended: GES 10, GES 20, GED 10 and GED 20. Belgian waffle lovers will love the GES 10 model for Brussels waffles, and GES 20 for Liege waffles.
For frozen waffles, the GES 20 waffle iron has been tested and validated with McCain frozen waffles.
For takeaways and waffles on sticks, the GES 23, GES 80 and GED 80 are suggested. Pastry chefs and glaciers will appreciate creating ice-cream cones with the GES 40 waffle iron for cones.
A round waffle iron is best for preparing and baking round waffles, which can then be cut and shared into 4 quarters and served on a plate with ice-cream, chocolate sauce, red berry sauce, or any other topping of your choice. The GED 40 (double model), GES 75 and GED 75 are indicated for round waffles.
Roller Grill always likes to further the culinary boundaries through innovative, new concepts in cookery and bakery.

Salted waffles are a new trend that has become popular, and the GES 80 machine will help you make these “lollipop” waffles.
Another helpful Roller Grill feature is that the waffle makers possess a patented stainless steel tray, which forms a rim below the edge of the bottom plate. This collects excess batter, and makes the cleaning up process so much easier. The tray is completely dishwasher-safe.
Clean up of our waffle makers is quick and painless. On a cooled-down and unplugged machine, simply use the complimentary brush to scrub the plates and hinges, and then just clean and wipe down the inside and outside of the machine using a wet sponge.
The waffle machines come with a commutator thermostat 0-300°C, control lights, and a timer. They are also delivered with a complementary brush utensil for cleaning purposes.
