Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker (Reviews and More)

Take your breakfast to a new level with the Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker!

With its quality construction, this unit is light, compact, and comes with a temperature control system that allows your waffles to cook evenly without being overcooked.

What makes the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker even more appealing is the 180-degree flip function.

This feature is handy because it allows you to distribute batter evenly before preparing your waffle. Flipping the waffle is a restaurant quality feature that’s usually reserved for professional appliances that are much more expensive.

In this case, its innovative design allows for restaurant quality waffles in a small kitchen appliance price.

Last but not least, this innovative waffle maker is designed with a stainless steel casing and a non-stick ceramic interior that makes it very easy to clean.

Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker Features

  • Quality construction

The first quality feature of the Presto Waffle Maker is the construction. Made from a mix of plastic and stainless steel, this unit is steady and capable of withstanding the test of time. It feels sturdy and heavy to the touch and feels like a much more expensive appliance than it really is.

  • 180-degree flipping capability

Another feature that raised every customer’s eyebrows is the flipping capability. This function is perfect because it allows you to spread batter, syrup, or fruit throughout the waffle plates before baking. This is typically a feature of a much more expensive waffle maker, but you can get it in the Presto for a fraction of the price.

  • A large interior

The last feature we looked at is the size. The non-stick grid has a large seven-inch diameter that allows you to bake thick waffles to kick-start your morning.

Pros

  • Waffle Maker Quality – This waffle maker bakes quality waffles with a golden brown color and has enough holes to spread your favorite toppings.
  • Ceramic Non-stick Plates– This waffle maker has a ceramic non-stick coating that makes it very easy for you to clean the unit after cooking. This also means there’s no need to oil or season the waffle maker.
  • Convenient Rotation – The ability to flip at an angle of 180 degrees means that your waffle batter will spread evenly and cook evenly on both sides, ensuring great waffles every time..
  • Construction – With a lightweight of just six pounds and dimensions of 12×12×3 inches, this waffle maker doesn’t take much of your kitchen countertop space. And its stainless steel exterior is tough and stain resistant.
  • Digital Timer – This appliance has a countdown timer with a digital display that signals when baking time is up.
  • Compact Storage – Since it can be stored in a vertical position, it means easy storage (only a few waffle makers can be stored vertically) that will save you kitchen counter space.

Cons

  • Timer – One major setback of this waffle maker is the timer. It must be set separately and doesn’t really control the temperature or any functions of the waffle maker, it’s just a timer.
  • On/Off – Unlike other models, which come with an on/off switch, this one lacks a switch, so you have to manually disconnect the unit from the main power outlet immediately after the waffles finish cooking.
  • No adjustable temperature control – Yes, that’s right. Although there’s no adjustable temperature control it has no problem making waffles that are evenly cooked. 

I cooked 100 waffles through the Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker (How to use the Presto Waffle Maker)

This is a super easy waffle maker to use. You plug it in and it begins to heat up. To turn it off, just unplug it.

There was no sticking at all – not even a little bit. This is what the waffle grids looked like when I was done.

I found the sweet spot to be 3 minutes – 2 minutes left the waffle too raw and 4 minutes left the waffle to be a little too crispy on the outside and too dry.

I also found that 2/3 cup was slightly not enough batter (see image below) but 3/4 was slightly too much.

The timer is a little bit difficult to figure out. It’s a separate button on one side of the appliance. You press it as many times as minutes that you need then it starts to automatically countdown. The timer beeps when there is one minute left and then turns from minutes to seconds until it hits 0.

See below for the 2-minute countdown.

This final picture is of the vertical storage feature of the Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Waffle Maker. This compact storage is one of the best features it saves you counter space. It also looks pretty cool just standing straight up on the counter, doesn’t it?

How to clean the Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker

In reality, few waffle makers can easily make the perfect waffle while requiring little cleanup. Because of Presto’s ceramic waffle plates, there will absolutely be no sticking of your waffle batter to the plates. 

So when you’re ready to clean up, you just grab a moist paper towel, a rag, or a microfiber cloth, and wipe down the waffle grids (once it’s totally cooled down!). 

That’s right, a paper towel is enough to get all of the dried waffle batter off of the deep pockets of the grids. 

Summary

The Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is an outstanding unit that does exactly what it was designed to do, make Belgian waffles.

Its features are perfect, the operation is outstanding, and the overall performance is incredible.

The only concern is with the timer. Although it does produce a loud sound, you do have to keep a close eye on it to unplug the system from the power outlet immediately after your fluffy Belgian waffles are done.

Comparison

Many customers like to review a few different waffle makers to compare their specs with the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker.

Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Waffle Maker vs Secura 360 Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker

One of the alternative waffle makers we considered was the Secura 360 Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker w/ Removable Non-Stick Plates and Recipes. Quite different from other waffle makers, this one has the ability to rotate at a complete 360-degree angle to allow your waffles to cook evenly.

The non-stick plates are removable and dishwasher safe, and the cool-touch handle ensures that you don’t burn your hands while flipping. With a lightweight of 4.1 pounds and dimensions of 17×10.2×6.9 inches, the Secura 360 Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker is among the best units to consider this year.

Oster Belgian Flip Waffle Maker vs Presto Ceramic FlipSide Waffle Maker

The second product we reviewed was the Oster Belgian Flip Waffle Maker, Brushed Stainless Steel. Also designed with a simple flip operation, this waffle maker has precise temperature control settings that allow you to bake golden brown waffles in three to five minutes.

The non-stick removable plates are easy to clean and fix, and the stainless steel casing ensures that your waffle iron is well protected against rust.

Presto 03510 Ceramic FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker vs Cuisinart Double Belgian Waffle Maker

The third product we’ll take a look at is the Cuisinart WAF-F20 Double Waffle Maker. This also features a flip design, except this design rotates versus flipping back.

This is one of the few waffle makers that can make two Belgian waffles at a time and has 6 different settings for browning control. It also has two LED-ready indicator lights that illuminate when each waffle is done.

Conclusion – America’s Test Kitchen Favorite Waffle Maker

After a thorough review of these waffle makers, the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker emerged as the overall winner.

Although to be honest, it just slightly beat out the Cuisinart Double Belgian Waffle maker, primarily because the Cuisinart doesn’t have ceramic plates and is double the price of the Presto Waffle Maker.

Among the features that impressed most customers included the 180-degree flipping capability, the dual function base, deep grids that bake thick waffles, and display signals that notify you when waffles are ready.

In addition to that, it was featured in PBS’ America’s Test Kitchen as one of the best waffle makers on the market.

Available at an affordable price, the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is the perfect waffle iron for customers looking for a high-quality appliance at an affordable price.
