At 16 inches wide and 23 pounds, this is a bulky counter hog, but if you have the space, it's the machine for you. The extra size and weight are due to the double-clamshell construction that allows you to prepare grand waffles in two round, deep-pocketed grids at once: Fill the KitchenAid Waffle Baker with batter, close the lid, rotate to reveal a second iron, and repeat. The settings are rudimentary (you program cooking time in 15-second intervals), but at every setting we tried, the waffles baked evenly. [$150; kitchenaid.com]
