Why aren't my waffles crispy? Help!

Scirocco | Jan 11, 2008 01:10 PM

We make waffles frequently on the weekends and I just can't seem to get them to come out crispy from the waffle iron. I use a Vitantonio Premier waffle maker with the small holes (not a Belgian waffle maker). I spray the iron each time with cooking spray and I've tried lots of waffles made from scratch and the Bisquick ones. I cook them to a medium brown, but they just don't seem to crisp up like I'd like (and I don't want dry, just crispy on the outside).

I've even gone so far as to take them out of the waffle iron and then sort of "pan fry" them in a little butter in my cast iron skillet. Works better but seems awfully labor intensive!

Don't know if I need to change the iron temp (I cook on "medium") or if I need a new waffle iron (it's 10 years old) or what. It seems to work fine otherwise.
