Why Does My Waffle Iron ALWAYS Get Gunky?

aurora50 | Jul 26, 201008:29 PM     7

I'm watching an old Alton Brown rerun, and I'm surprised to see that he uses "non-stick" (hmm) cooking spray, and it seems to work well for him, and he seems to like it. But whenever I have tried the stuff, it always gunks and sticks up my waffle iron so badly, it's always a bear to clean, and I always end up eventually having to throw it away! What am I doing wrong? Is it the quality of the spray? I've also tried simply adding some oil to my waffle mix, and that seems to be the best -
Thoughts?
