The Waffle Baker may emit a slight odor or smoke the first time it is used. This is a normal
result of the manufacturing process. The odor or smoke is harmless and will dissipate
quickly, but it may flavor the first waffle prepared on each side of the baker. For the best
results, it is recommended that these initial waffles be discarded.
Steam will be produced during every baking cycle and condensation may form on the
baker lids. This is normal.

the finest consistency.

waffles are too light; decrease the
