Cleaning Waffle Irons

Elora | Feb 11, 2009 07:46 AM

I have a non-stick Cuisinart waffle iron which cooks quite well. I'm very happy with it but can't figure out how to get it really clean for the life of me.

Instructions say to wipe clean with a damp cloth (paper towel, whatever). But, of course getting between the grids is not easy. No matter how hard I try, residue cooking spray stays inside them and eventually it's going to start to degrade and go rancid (already, I can smell that faint odor which I dislike and the iron is only a few months old).

I use it fairly regularly, a few times a month. Is there any tip to getting this clean easily or am I to suffer with a semi-dirty waffle iron forever? I keep wondering if I should have just spent more money and gotten one with removeable grids to I could have soaked them or thrown them in the dishwasher :(
