I got this for my daughters college apartment. It's a nice size, cooks the waffles really evenly, and makes them a nice golden brown, good size. The removable plates make for easier cleaning.
Some issues we have encountered: The clip that holds it open or closed is not intuitive, so it might take a little bit of getting used to. You need to push in the too. The cord is really short, so if you need to plug it in far away from your outlet, this might not be the waffle maker for you. Lastly, if you forget to oil the grates, the waffle will stick and because it's a Belgian waffle and has deep channels, it makes it a bit difficult to clean. The recommended 1/2 cup of batter seemed to make an incomplete waffle, but more than 2/3 cup causes a messy overflow
Overall however, this is an excellent waffle maker however and the removable plates and excellent cook far outweigh the negatives
