What shoppers are saying

In addition to fans on TikTok, Amazon shoppers have also given this mini waffle maker the seal of approval. With a 4.6-star rating from more than 80,000 worldwide reviews, you can bet that this little appliance will make a solid addition to your roster of kitchen appliances.

“This is so amazingly easy to use. Perfect little waffles every time,” explained one review. “I was having problems with my pancake batter sticking to my pans and burning so i bought this and there's hardly any clean up. I spray with olive oil before adding the batter. When I'm done I just wipe it down with a damp paper towel.”

Whether you plan on using it for snacks, waffles, or keto-approved dishes, the Dash Mini Waffle Maker holds up to all kinds of recipes.

“I am not the type of person to leave a review but I had to for this product!” one five-star reviewer raved of their purchase. “I am using it to make buns out of eggs for my keto diet. They are the perfect size for a junior Burger with a chicken patty in between and some cheese… Tastes amazing and only took about 2 minutes to make! Buy this.”

Since this is a mini waffle maker that only cooks one waffle at a time, don’t expect to feed a crowd in a flash. Luckily, with crispy and delicious waffles produced every time, it appears to be worth the wait.
