Default Re: Warnick & Leibrandt Waffle Iron Question

the only problem with all of the older style waffle irons that flip on those middle pins... is that you either need an open stove eye to flip them or you need to fabricate some sort of high base adapter to raise it up above the heat source so you can flip it without picking the whole thing up to do it.

I would say the smaller ones are 'less common' and from the info on the stove history page yours is probably from the mid 1800's... but I believe they were making waffle irons back in the 1700's... Thomas Jefferson is alleged to have brought one back to the US from France because he liked it so much.
