Sage Smart Waffle
With six settings for different waffles (buttermilk waffle, anyone?) and 12 browning settings, this is a waffle maker for the modern age. The handy countdown timer gives you enough time to make a cuppa while it’s churning out beautifully fluffy and crisp waffles, and it doesn’t need greasing or much cleaning when you’re done. Dangerously good.

Dualit Waffle Iron
This imposing machine takes exactly 8 minutes to heat up and makes thin, crispy waffles, perfect for stacking. Although the quietest of the bunch, the tiny indentations on the plates make them a pain to clean, and it’s equally painful on the wallet.

Cuisinart WAF1U Waffle Maker
Quick to heat up, the deep-dish plates produce waffles with some serious pockets in less time than it takes to brew a cuppa. The plates are removable for easy cleaning and the machine is nice and compact, though it’s a bit light on features compared to the Sage
£60 | Cusinart
