Description  more details

This waffle iron was patented in 1940. The design was patented in 1938. It was manufactured until 1942 then the war got in the way and was not made again until 1946. 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 "plain Jane" version of the design which sold for a reduced price but the mechanics, wiring and heat system are all the same as its fancier brother.

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.  There is a little indicator telling you when its ready to bake. Actually it hits 525 degrees F at top and sort of stays there so it cooks very nicely and will not burn your waffles.

It took more hours than what the price reflects to bring this back, but it was fun. Comes with new cordset.
