Cuisinart Waffle Maker will be your best companion for your happy kitchen. Lets know about the Cuisinart Waffle Maker and how to use it. The Waffle Maker is completely cool before cleaning or storing and must be unplugged; leaving the front cover open is going to allow hot grids to cool more quickly. To clean it, simply brush crumbs from grooves or clean with a fresh and dry cloth or kitchen cloths. You can also wipe the grids by cleaning them with a damp cloth to prevent sticking and staining from oil build-up or batter.
