    Seasoned well. Not for backpacking! Short handle means it works best on the campstove. Also bought long-handled tools for campfire cooking.

    Comments about Rome Old Fashioned Waffle Iron:

    Season this cast iron waffle iron properly (instructions included tell you how) and you will NEVER have a stuck waffle. Just a spritz of spray oil, heat it up (I cook over a propane stove) and this thing makes perfect waffles every time! It's a little too heavy for backpacking but great for campers, RVs, or hardcore tent campers who love a good breakfast. I use mine on my live-aboard houseboat so I can have a waffle without having to run a generator. Survivalists will love it too, imagine the cities burning, people dying, the power is out and you're starting the first morning of the apocalypse with a nice toasty waffle!

      Comments about Rome Old Fashioned Waffle Iron:

      Got for my Scout Troop. First couple of attempts didn't turn out so well. Waffle stuck, wasn't cooked thru, a little burnt. Adjusted our cooking routine; added LOTS more non stick spray and made sure the iron was really hot before adding mix. Also kept turned the iron a few times to avoid burning. The boys loved having waffles on their campout and the other patrol was very envious. Need to get a nylon scrubber to clean it better next time.

        Comments about Rome Old Fashioned Waffle Iron:

        I was looking for a cast iron waffle maker. I don't like using non-stick or teflon products. Its intended use was for home for a twelve-year old boy who loves waffles. But I'm taking it camping, also. It works amazingly well, even on my electric range. Waffles come out great if you get your temps and your timing down. Make sure to use pot holders or oven mitts. The handles get hot.

        The factory paraffin wax coating in a pain to remove prior to first use. I beeswax coating would be better and could be cooked with right out of the box.

        Great waffle iron for at home and on the trail. Once its hot, you can crank out delicious waffles with a better texture than you'll ever get out of non-stick pans.

        One thing: I wish it was bigger. This is a traditional waffle pan - not Belgian. Still delicious.

            A:

            A glass top stove is really an electric stove and you can use the Waffle iron on the stove. Allow sufficient time to heat the iron though.

        • Q:

          I have read the reviews and I am very interested in purchasing. One thing, everyone says great for gas stove, but what about electric stove? I have iron skillets and use them often and we are campers so it would be useful even if it does not work on an electric stove well. I know this may be a silly question and a very obvious answer but, I want to make sure before purchasing. Thank you Jessica

        • Q:

          probably a stupid question, but i never said i was smart. when using your waffle iron, does one heat both sides by flipping it over or just let it sit and heat on one side? Thank you

            A:

            You would need to flip this over unless you were heating on both sides at once like an oven
