This waffle iron is very good, it cooks very evenly and the recipies in the instructions are excellent. The only downfall is the plug adapter that comes with it. As the product is German it is built with a 2-pin plug, but comes with an adapter, unfortunately, despite the adapter being CE marked, it doesn't fit a standard 13A socket properly - the distance between the earth pin & live & neutral lower pins is too short by a couple of mm. This means it won't engage fully. I strongly advise buying a separate adapter, you could replace the 2-pin with a 13A plug but this will void the warranty.
