The Bella 13991 Classic Belgian waffle maker is a good fit for people who prefer having full-size waffles for breakfast. The Bella 13991 is one of the best performers in our cooking test. Its waffles weren’t spectacular, but more than sufficient for breakfasts.
So, if you’re looking for a good household waffle maker, the Bella 13991 is up to the task.
On the other hand, the Holstein Housewares HH-09125016B will be a better choice if you either need a compact waffle maker, or you’d like to eat waffles more as snacks than a full meal.
It cooks small, 4-inch waffles that fit in the palm of your hand. The size makes it perfect as a snack.
A smaller waffle also means a smaller size. You can easily fit this waffle maker in your backpack. As a result, the HH-09125016B and other mini waffle makers were great hits among travelers and campers.
