Description  more details

This waffle iron was patented in 1939. The design was patented in 1938. It was manufactured until late 40s but not during WWII. It was popular and sold into the 1950's. Designed by August A. Proernick for GE. He was the designer of many GE appliances.  This is the "Westport" version of the design which is nicely etched on top. The mechanics, wiring and heat system are all great and the brown "Bakelite" handles show it off.

It works very well but does not have a thermostat so you have to keep cooking or unplug it. It does self regulate as long as you keep cooking.  Very nice wide drip catcher. There is a little indicator telling you when its ready to bake but it is hard to see and read. Actually it hits 525 degrees F at top and sort of stays there so it cooks very nicely and will not burn your waffles. Takes about 7 minutes to warm to cooking temp.

It took more hours than what the price reflects to bring this back, but it was fun. Comes with newer style 6 foot cordset, complete instructions and a temperature / time chart.
