My mother used to make us waffles with this same iron! People love vintage kitchen equipment, and this one still works. You should have no trouble selling this.

FactsEdit

  • Fact 1: In the Middle Ages, thin baked oat and barley wafers were a popular (if boring) food. Wafers texured to hold toppings eventually became the modern waffle.
  • Fact 2: Traditional waffle irons were cast-iron plates hinged together and held over open flame, and came to America with Dutch pilgrims in the 1620s.
  • Fact 3: Inventor Thomas J. Steckbeck, with funding from General Electric, produced the first electric waffle iron in 1911.
  • Fact 4: In 1971, track coach Bill Bowerman experimented with a waffle iron to create lightweight, grippy shoe soles. A year later, Nike's iconic "Waffle Trainer" hit the market.
  • Fact 5: In 1930, three brothers in San Jose, California invented frozen waffles that could be prepared without an iron. By the 1950s, their Eggo waffles were in supermarkets nationwide.
