When you first take the Mickey Mouse waffle maker out of the box, you are greeted with a bright red waffle maker with a friendly black and white Mickey who truly looks like he is ready to make some waffles. The non-stick waffle plates are ready to go, no greasing or seasoning required. Simply plug in the Mickey Mouse waffle maker and you are on your way to making the most adorable waffle ever.
A red Mickey shaped power light automatically turns on when you plug in this waffle maker and will remain on throughout the cooking process. The inside plates of the waffle maker feature one large Mickey Mouse face surrounded by a flat plate which can catch any batter that might overflow (ensuring you have a perfect Mickey shape even if you add too much batter)
The instructions included with the waffle maker suggest 3-6 minutes to heat the waffle maker up and 3-5 minutes to cook the waffles. A few short minutes and you'll be on your way!
About 3/4 of a cup of our perfect waffle batter filled the Mickey Mouse shape inside this waffle maker. I kept the waffle maker closed for about 4 minutes then opened it up to reveal a beautiful Mickey Mouse waffle! I have to admit, I was excited at how nicely it looked and no batter stuck to the waffle iron at all making it easy to remove the waffle from the iron.
I flipped the waffle over on the plate as the bottom of the Mickey looked even better- perfectly golden browned. The waffle was slightly crispy but a little softer than a typical Belgian waffle. (If you just want a traditional Belgian waffle, give the Oster DuraCeramic waffle maker a try!). The four minute cooking time seemed accurate as the waffle was cooked through and was ready to be eaten by my hovering 2 year old!
Yes! If you love Mickey Mouse or have a Mickey Mouse fan in your house, you should definitely buy this Mickey Mouse waffle maker (if this doesn't sound like the right waffle maker for you, check out our blog about things to consider when buying a waffle maker- we will help you find what you are looking for!).
Not only does it make a perfectly shaped Mickey Mouse but it also makes a decent tasting waffle. If you have a kid who is a picky eater then definitely don't wait, click here and get this Mickey waffle maker now! My 2 year old gobbled the whole waffle down without any syrup and asked for seconds.
I admit that I was skeptical about how well a character shaped waffle maker would work in my kitchen. Some I have tried in the past burn the waffles, undercook the waffles, or make unrecognizable shapes. However, I was so pleasantly surprised by this machine that I have been using it every day and not just for my daughter's breakfast but for mine as well!
