Waffle Iron Question

DavidT | Oct 19, 2008 05:22 PM

I recently inherited a well used Toastmaster waffle iron. It works OK, but the reddish-brown ceramic plates (that are removable/reversible and have a waffle iron on one side and a flat grilling surface on the other) have a blue-ish white discoloration over them.

At first I thought this was some type of mold. After running the plates thru the dishwasher and then scrubbing them with a brush, the areas of discoloration remained.

Does anyone know what might have caused this? Is it safe to use the waffle iron in this condition?
