KitchenAid vs. Presto Waffle Maker Reviews: Is Expensive Better?

Waffles and raspberries

Consumers on Viewpoints are just as excited to recommend Presto, a budget waffle maker, as KitchenAid, a luxury brand.

The key to a great waffle is flipping it as it cooks. Presto and KitchenAid make the two popular waffle makers on Viewpoints, a leading consumer reviews and product ranking website.

CHICAGO, Oct. 22, 2012 — Price does not determine quality in a waffle maker. Reviewers on Viewpoints ( are just as excited to recommend a $40 waffle maker as one that costs five times as much. 

Best Value: Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker($40, rated 90/100)


Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker gets rave reviews for performance at an affordable price.

The Presto takes up little counter space, and it features a countdown timer, digital display and a rotating design to perfectly bake a 7-inch waffle.

“It makes nice and hard (crisp) waffles with a very soft interior… the waffles always come out fantastic.” —brianrecaro

“It makes the best waffles at a fraction of the cost of most other ‘flip’ style waffle makers.” glennmichele98

“It heats up fast, cooks fast, and cleans easy. What more could anyone ask for in a waffle maker, other than having it mix the batter and clean itself?” —KatiSteiner

KitchenAid Pro Line Series Waffle Baker

The KitchenAid Pro Line Series Waffle Baker is the best for people who are serious about waffles.
