Breville's new machine comes with an unmatched number of settings (four for batter, 12 for darkness), which means you really can dial in the perfect waffle. In addition to being idiot-proof, the Smart Waffle is mess-proof: Unlike similar machines, this one has a nifty moat that catches any overflow when you pour in the batter. The cooking time is determined by the preprogrammed settings, but if your four thick waffles are still slightly undercooked, there's a useful "a bit more" button that lets you fire them just enough to achieve that golden brown.
