Best Waffle Maker For Chaffles

What’s better than a waffle? A chaffle of course! Made with oh-so glorious cheese and eggs, a chaffel is the stuff of dreams for us cheese lovers. Instead of making a waffle batter containing eggs, flour, sugar and milk, a chaffle is made using whisked eggs, a cheese of your choice (parmesan is undeniably the best) and any seasoning of your choice. When you pour the mixture in the waffle maker and let it cook, you are left with a delicious cheesy waffle.

Chaffels have also become increasingly popular thanks to their low-calorie, low-carb qualities. They are great if you are following a meal plan or are on a keto diet. They are also extremely versatile! You can eat them as they are, make them sweet or savory, pop them in a sandwich or even make a chaffel pizza! The possibilities are endless!

That said, if you want to make some damn delicious chaffles you are going to want a good quality waffle iron. There are few things more frustrating than your chaffle turning into a crumbled mess as you desperately try to pull it out of the machine.

After doing my fair share of research and testing, I have narrowed it down to a few appliances I think you should consider. 

Let’s take a look at the 8 best waffle maker for chaffles!
