It’s time to break away from breakfast!

Tips on how to make the perfect waffles

Cuisinart recommends the heat setting #3 for golden brown waffles. If you prefer crisper, darker waffles, increase the browning control to setting #4 or 5. For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the center of the lower grid and close the cover. We recommend using 1/2 cup batter per waffle for evenly filled waffles. Waffles are best when made to order, but baked waffles may be kept warm in a 200°F oven. Place in a baking pan or wrap in foil while in the oven. Waffles wrapped in foil may lose their crispiness. Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow to cool completely, then place in plastic food storage bag. Use waxed paper to keep waffles separated. Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven when ready to use.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Once you have finished baking, remove plug from electrical outlet. Leave top lid open so grids begin to cool. Never take your waffle maker apart for cleaning. Simply brush crumbs from grooves, and absorb any excess cooking oil by wiping with a dry cloth or paper towel. You may clean the grids by wiping with a damp cloth to prevent staining and sticking from batter or oil buildup. Be certain grids have cooled completely before cleaning. If batter adheres to plates, simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked batter and let stand approximately 5 minutes, thus allowing it to soften for easy removal. To clean exterior, wipe with a soft dry cloth. Never use an abrasive cleanser or harsh pad.

Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer

Paderno World Cuisine Vegetable Slicer

The Paderno World Cuisine vegetable slicer creates spiral cuts and vegetable or fruit noodles in seconds. The frame and blade plates are constructed of very high-quality, impact-resistant ABS plastic that is BPA-free, and the blades are made of stainless steel. It has four powerful suction feet that are fitted with tabs for easy release, and does not require an outlet connection or batteries.

The slicer is an easy-to-use, handy tool that makes zucchini spaghetti, cucumber ribbon strands, curly fries or long, spiral apple strands. It comes with three blades: a shredder blade (small holes), a chipper blade (large holes) and a straight blade. A storage compartment beneath the frame stores two blades and the third blade comes already in place.

Key Features: Three stainless steel blades: Shredder: creates long, spaghetti-like spiral strands Chipper: creates long, thick spiral strands Straight: creates long, ribbon-like strands Use with a variety of fruits and vegetables including apples, potatoes, carrots, cucumber, zucchini and more Impact-resistant, BPA-free ABS plastic frame and blade plate construction Integrated storage compartment holds extra blades Powerful suction feet for stability with easy release tabs Hand operated–no batteries or AC outlet necessary Three Blades for Versatility

The shredder blade measures 1/8″, or 3mm, in thickness and produces long spaghetti-like spiral strands. The chipper blade measures 1/4″, or 5mm, in thickness and produces long, thick spiral strands. The flat blade measures 1/8″, or 3mm, and produces long ribbon-like strands.

Simple to Use

The slicer is very simple to use. Secure the slicer to a smooth working surface by pressing down on each corner. (Note: the rotating crank should face your left or right side.) Attach one side of the vegetable or fruit to the small circular corer on the blade plate and gently press the prongs onto the opposite end. Use one hand to push the lever handle along while simultaneously turning the crank handle with the other hand.

Your vegetable or fruit can measure up to 10″ long and 7″ thick, and must be at least 1/2″ thick in diameter. Suggestions of vegetables and fruits to use are zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, sweet potatoes and apples. You can make long ribbons of cucumber and radishes for salads, apple spirals for apple slaw, sweet potatoes for curly sweet potato fries or use the straight blade for sweet potato chips!

This spiral slicer can be easily disassembled and washed under warm water with mild detergent or placed on the upper rack of a dishwasher. The blades should be removed and washed similarly. Be cautious when washing the blades, as they are very sharp and should not be touched directly. Note that the two blades can be stored in the storage compartment and the third blade can remain in place.

Secure slicer to counter by pressing on suction feet. Insert your blade of choice. Push or pull the food holder to accommodate your chosen fruit or vegetable. Secure your food on the circular corer and gently press into prongs on the opposite end. Additional tips: Select vegetables that are at least 1/2″ in diameter Make sure the feet are suctioned firmly by ensuring the table or counter surface is dry Select vegetables that are relatively straight. Make sure that you trim enough off the ends of the vegetable or fruit to secure a firm hold onto the prongs Remove the stored blades while in use, as remnants and juices from the sliced food will dirty them Have a chopstick or any other long, narrow tool by your side to remove any remaining vegetable or fruit matter that gets stuck in the core of the cutting blade The machine measures L 12″ X W 6″ X H 8 3/4″

Product Features

  • Make quick work of fancy vegetable peeling with the spiral vegetable slicer
  • Includes 3 sets of blades: 1/8-inch spacing, 1/4-inch spacing, and straight blade for ribbon cuts
  • Simply place vegetable or fruit on prongs, turn wheel while pushing base toward blade
  • Made of durable plastic
  • Backed by a 1-year warranty
