If you’ve been a long time reader, or you are new here there is one thing you know about me or are about to learn: We love Breville in our house! It’s a brand name that when you say it, the whole family including the kids know — we trust it and we love it!
We not only have the Breville Quick Touch Crisp Microwave, the Smart grill and the Hemisphere Control Blender we also just got the Smart Waffle 2 slice and the Crispy Crust Pizza Maker (review coming soon)! So it’s a name we love and have grown to trust over the last few years! Breville products are built to last, and built for a family like ours — we are always cooking and always looking for new ways to spruce up what we do in the kitchen!
Jackson, our little 5 year old is obsessed with Waffles. He is always requesting them, and we are having to buy the big boxes. I never really thought of getting a waffle maker but of course jumped at the chance from Breville. If I can save some money and make my own waffles, I will jump at it. We spend so much money on food I’m happy to even get the few dollars I’ll save from buying waffles (ALL.THE.TIME) and I’m happy to get the prime real estate in my freezers back (yes, two freezers we have three boxes, 2 in one and 1 in another… it’s an obsession I tell you)!
I’d much rather make things from scratch anyway, that way I truly know what is going into my kids food and tummies.
The no mess, no waste, no hassle kinda waffle
Whether topped with ice cream, drizzled with maple syrup or served with tasty fried chicken, Breville’s Smart Waffle lets you enjoy delicious, sweet or savoury waffles without the mess of overflowing batter and hard‐to‐clean surfaces. Its unique moat design collects and transforms excess batter into snackable waffle fingers for easy clean up and no waste. And, with its Waffle IQ, expect nothing but exceptional cooking consistency and the waffle of your choice, every single time.
Available in either a two or four‐slice square design, the Smart Waffle creates thick, perfectly cooked, waffles with deep pockets — ideal for syrup drenching and chocolate sauce overload. It uses ThermalPro innovation to evenly distribute heat and features a floating hinge, allowing the waffle to rise evenly.
With Waffle IQ, select the Belgian, classic, chocolate, buttermilk or custom setting to determine the crunchiness of your waffle and then select your desired brownness from 12 settings. A ready alert signal chimes when the Smart Waffle is preheated. Simply pour in the batter and close the lid. Its auto start function begins counting down and the LCD display changes from blue to orange to indicate that the cooking process has begun.
The ‘A Bit More’ button lets you add additional cooking time without adjusting the timer and its convenient progress indicator means the only thing you have to worry about is how you’re going to top your waffle. The Smart Waffle’s non‐stick surface makes cleaning effortless and its lid latches in place for easy storage.
With Waffle IQ™, the cooking time is automatically calculated to suit your waffle style and colour.
Simply select Belgian, Classic, Chocolate or Buttermilk, your preferred colour from light to dark and pour in the waffle batter — the waffle maker will do the rest.
There is also a custom setting which allows you to set your own waffle style.
Breville’s 2 Slice Square Waffle (BWM620XL) and 4 Slice Square Waffle (BWM640XL) are available at retailers across Canada at suggested retail prices of $249.99 and $299.99. To view the entire line of Breville products or to watch how‐to videos, please visit www.breville.ca.
I have never had a homemade waffle before. I have only ever had the store-bought frozen which to quote Ava, “Always seem to taste frozen even when hot!” and aren’t very good. But these waffles are really amazing. We tried a recipe which I had in a recipe book of my grandma’s and my husband had the “darkness” up a bit too high for me, but I still think they turned out pretty amazing.
The kids had different preferences. Some wanted just bananas and strawberries on it, while others wanted bananas and whipped cream and another just plain.
It’s a lot of fun being able to fancy them up to whatever taste you are currently wanting. We change it up all the time so it doesn’t get boring ever!
When you get it set and select which waffle you are making, your desired level for darkness then close the lid it also counts down the minutes until its ready which helps me so I can get the toppings prepared. It’s a really great machine that produces really great waffles. Look how thick and glorious they are. They are light and the taste is all there. All my kids voted, and agreed these are way better than store bought and have quickly become a most requested item for breakfast and/or brunch!
Looking for a new way to spruce up breakfast? Tired of the frozen waffles, and want to put goodies back in your mornings?
The Breville Smart Waffle is seriously an amazing addition to any kitchen. Your little waffle lovers will thank you, I PROMISE! Also request homemade waffles every morning but at least you know they will have full tummies and be ready for anything the day throws at them!
