The Black and Decker WMD200B Double waffle maker and the Bella 13991 Classic share a double-sided design. Both are great for large families and those who have to bake a lot of waffles regularly by giving you the ability to cook two waffles at once.
Upon closer inspection, though, there are plenty of differences between them.
The Black and Decker WMD200B doesn’t have a browning control dial, while the Bella 13991 Classic does. Because of this, the Bella 13991 Classic will give you better control over the cooking process and make it easier to attain the right browning level for your waffle’s crust.
With the Black and Decker WMD200B, as it lacks a control dial, you have to time the cooking process precisely depending on your desired browning level.
In terms of design, while the WMD200B may not look as flashy as the Bella 13991 due to its all-black plastic exterior, its build quality is excellent. The Bella 13991 doesn’t do well in this segment due to having numerous build quality issues, like having dangerously loose lid hinges.
