What’s better than a waffle? A chaffle of course! Made with oh so glorious cheese and eggs, a chaffle is a thing of dreams for 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.
Chaffles have also become increasingly popular recently due 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 chaffle pizza! The possibilities are endless!
Let’s take a look at the best waffle maker for chaffles!
Dash is very well known in the waffle world and this 4?”waffle maker is one of the best and most loved. It is more than just a mini waffle maker. You can make hash browns, paninis, pizzas and are great for making mini, bite size chaffles!

Chaffle tip: Keep in mind, the Dash Mini Waffle Maker takes around 4-6 minutes to cook each chaffle, so it does take some time if you are making many of them.
This Dash waffle maker is just slightly bigger at 8”. This can make one large 8” chaffle (’cause who wouldn’t want a humongous chaffle all to themselves?!) or 4 separate ones. Just like the Dash Mini, your waffle maker can make many other things too, such as paninis, pizzas and hash browns.
It is slightly heavier than the mini, weighing 3.66lb but it is still small and compact enough to fit well in your kitchen without taking up too much space.

Cuisinart has a great reputation in the kitchen appliance world, having some of the most reliable products out there. This Cuisinart double waffle maker is great as it makes deep, 7, thick and extremely delicious chaffles. Better yet, it makes two 7”, thick chaffles at the same time!
It also features an on/off switch, which many other waffle makers lack, a turn dial that allows you to control how brown you want to chaffle and a LED light that lets you know your chaffle is ready. It also beeps when your delicious chaffle has been cooked so you don’t need to constantly keep an eye on it.
The non stick grids ensure that your chaffles don’t stick to the surface and the ability to rotate the waffle maker means that your mixture will spread and cook evenly.

This Secura waffle maker is great for making chaffers for one. Its deep grids makes thick, fluffy, golden brown chaffles and the 360 degree rotation ensures that your chaffles cook evenly every time.
It features cool touch handles for safety and although it does not beep to let you know that your chaffles are done, there is an indicating light that lets you know that your waffle maker is ready to cook.
The plates are Teflon coated and are non-stick, which makes it easier to remove your chaffle. Although the plates are not dishwasher friendly, they are removable, making them super easy to clean. This is great as many other waffle makers don’t have removable plates.
Chaffle tip: Your Secura waffle maker may give off a light smoke or burning odor when you first use it. This does not mean the product is defected and there is no cause for alarm.
There are many great waffle makers out there that can make irresistible chaffles. Your choice of waffle maker might depend on whether you will be making small, bite size chaffles or large ones. The Dash 8” Waffle Maker is great for making large ones but also 4 bite size chaffles.
So, which one is the best waffle maker for chaffles? Our personal favourite has to be the Dash No-Drip Belgian Waffle Maker. Aside from being a top quality product, the overflow channels make it far easier to clean and the cheese doesn’t drip all over our countertop!
