Black and Decker WMD200B Double vs Cuisinart WAF-F20P1 Double

Overall Verdict

Both models here are double-sided, but they’re vastly different in characters and pricing. See for yourself which is a better fit for your kitchen here!

Both are double-sided waffle makers. However, the Cuisinart WAF-F20P1, with the advantage of being a high-end product, makes for a far better buy than the Black and Decker WMD200B Double waffle maker.

It's evident from the first look that the Cuisinart WAF-F20P1 has excellent build quality. It is made from a combination of stainless steel and lightweight plastic. The plastic parts, however, aren't shoddily built like in budget waffle makers.

The Black and Decker WMD200B also has good build quality, but it can't compare to the Cuisinart regarding the design's intricacy or premium feel.

But where the Cuisinart WAF-F20P1 shines the brightest is in its performance. With an excellent assessment of every facet, it easily triumphed over the WMD200B.

The only issue with the WAF-F20P1 is its high pricing. Besides that, it is a superior waffle maker compared to the WMD200B.
