During the week our breakfast routine typically consists of grab what you can and go, so at the Weekend we often love to sit down as a family and enjoy breakfast or brunch together. During this time we typically eat the food we don't have time to enjoy in the week such as pastries, a cooked breakfast or Waffles!
I usually buy our waffles ready made, however recently we were approached to review the Sage "No Mess" Waffle Maker by Heston Blumenthal.
I loved the sound of a "no mess" waffle maker and so was interested to find out how it all worked. The Sage No Mess Waffle Maker has a unique moat which captures all of the mess that typically occurs as the waffle batter doubles in size. Once cooked, you can just cut off the extra, and eat or discard it. There are seven darkness settings depending on how well done you like your waffles. It also has a non -stick finish which releases the waffles easily.
We found the Waffle Maker very simple to use. It comes boxed with an instruction manual and recipe book which gives you examples of the different kinds of waffles you can make including Classic, Belgian-Style, Chocolate and Buttermilk. We decided to keep things simple and go for the classic waffle at first.
After we had made the batter mix as per the recipes book, we tried out the machine. The machine pre-heats and then lights up and makes an audible sound once hot enough. We then spread 125 mls of batter evenly over the waffle plate and closed the lid. The light switches off whilst cooking and then switches back on and another beep sounds once cooked. You can get about 8 waffles from the batter mixture.
You can see a demonstration of the Sage No Mess Waffle Maker in the video below.
The Sage No Mess Waffle Maker retails £99.95 and is available from John Lewis, Amazon and Sage Appliances online.
