There's nothing better first thing in the morning than a freshly made waffle. Warm, fluffy and filling, waffles are a breakfast favorite around the world whether on the weekend or before work. 

If you love waffles, a quality waffle maker is the right choice for you. All you have to do is plug in the waffle maker, let it warm up then pour in your batter. It's easy to do early in the morning and you'll be left with a much richer meal than breakfast cereal. 

In the past, the only downside to making waffles was the clean up. Those grooves could hold stubborn dried batter and make cleaning a pain. However, the Oster® DuraCeramic™ Waffle Maker makes tidying up a breeze. You'll be able to clean up your breakfast in no-time without any headaches.

Clean Your Oster® DuraCeramic™ Waffle Maker
Unlike other waffle makers, the Oster® DuraCeramic™ Waffle Maker has a specialty coating that prevents batter from sticking in the first place. You don't have to worry about whether you have too much or not enough oil on the iron - this surface is slippery and simple. 

Although nonstick, the Oster® DuraCeramic™ Waffle Maker is PFOA- and PTFE-free, resistant to scratches, peeling and flaking, and can cook faster than competitors' nonstick surfaces. 

For any batter that does happen to stick to the inside of your waffle maker, all you need to do is wipe it down with a damp paper towel or cloth. Simply unplug the waffle maker, wait for it to cool to a safe temperature and wipe the interior with a damp paper towel or cloth. If you have trouble getting a certain bit of batter out of your waffle maker, try placing the paper towel across the waffle iron plates then closing the maker to let the paper towel hit every groove. 

Your waffle maker will be clean enough for the next time you want to make waffles. 

How Not To Clean Your Waffle Maker 
The Oster® DuraCeramic™ Waffle Maker is particularly easy to clean, however if you do find yourself having trouble with a tough spot, there are a few things you should never do to a waffle maker. 

  • Don't submerge your waffle maker in the sink - Your waffle maker is an electronic appliance. If you submerge this item you risk damaging the appliance as well as yourself. Do not submerge the waffle maker to wash or soak. 
  • Don't clean while hot - It may be appealing to clean your waffle maker while its still warm and the food is soft, but it presents serious danger. Do not clean when your waffle maker is plugged in, turned on or still hot. 
  • Don't use sharp objects - Knives, scouring pads, steel wool and other sharp items may have their place in the kitchen, but they should never be used on your waffle maker. Any of these tools can scratch and damage your waffle maker severely. Consider using a rubber spatula instead to get into those hard-to-reach areas.
