The good news: This waffle maker cooks good waffles.
The not-so-good news: Because of the excessive play within the moving parts, this waffle maker feels cheaply made. With the lid up, the bottom half can tilt 1/2" (See photo).
To be on the safe side, using the handle, you have to hold the waffle iron level with one hand and pour the batter with the other.
Awkward at best. Same thing has to be done when the waffle is cooked. Don't know if this free play is unique to this particular waffle iron or if all of them are made this same way.
For me, a deal breaker.

The Cooks Flip Waffle Maker were the best product i purchase from JCP. I used it the day i receive it in mail and the waffles were delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a southern girl and this made me think about down home at my granny's house. All i had to do was mix the ingredients and pour the batter on the hot waffle maker and let it cook then flip and it was soon done on both sides.the light let me know that it was ready and even cook on both side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by buyer1 The support/stand
The stand cracked and broke after just a few months of owning the product, which is so sad because we really enjoyed how well the waffles turned out.

I had been on the look out for an easy to use, easy to clean waffle maker & voila was I happy to finally find an affordable, easy one which made the perfect size & shape waffles. I love it and am ready to order another one that I will gift to my sister. Totally enjoying waffles treats, undeservingly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ingya Good flip waffle iron - get over the handle....
I read up and review product feedback before making any purchase. Took a chance on this because I REALY wanted a waffle iron like they have one of my favorite hotels. Review complained about the 1 - handle folding up, 2 - being hard to clean and 3 - no indicator when the waffles are done. My thoughts:
1 - The handle needs to lock in place to make people happy. It doesn't. I paid 19.99 for it March of 2015. I was not expecting high quality, just that is worked as described. My handle did no fold in on me while cooking. It stayed pretty stable. Had no problems.
2 - I let my iron cool in the closed position, came back a 1/2 an hour later and wiped down with a damp paper towel. No oil build up after 2 Saturday mornings in a row. I did wipe extra moisture with a dry paper towel at the end.
3 - The iron has a light telling you when it is hot enough to use. I poured 1/3 cup of waffle batter plus a little extra to have a fully shaped finished waffle. After you flip the waffle maker it steams and mine had a green light that lit up when it was done. I played around with the darkness dial on the top and my family like it right in the middle. We use Kruetez pancake mix with the option waffle mix change - 1 egg and a little oil. Made 6 waffles for a family of 3. No complaints.
Please note in the direction it tells you NOT to eat the first waffle you make in it. Agreed - when I pulled it from the maker it smelled slightly of the plastic and packaging materials.
One other comment made in some reviews was regarding sticking. I used a silicon basting brush with a little oil to swipe on bottom and top plates between each waffle. I also used small serving tongs to remove the finish waffle.
I'm happy with my purchase.

We travel and at some spots they offer waffles. (you make your own with their waffle maker)... The price was right and affordable. Now we really enjoyed having our own from JC Penney. We use the recipe for waffles on the box of pancake mix great!
