This machine has only two settings ("crisp texture/moist interior" and "uniform"), but it produces waffles with terrific consistency. Although the narrow cooking surface means it can be very messy to use, with rampant leakage out the sides as you pour in the batter, it's a beast for brunch entertaining, turning out four thin but wide rectangular waffles faster than any of the other models we tested.
