Overall Design Scoring

The BLACK+DECKER WMD200B is an incredibly well-crafted machine for an entry-level product. Though it is made mostly from plastic, the waffle maker doesn’t look cheap. It’s not hard to imagine it as a mid-range or even a high-end model.

The non-stick waffle plates are coated with non-stick, which works well during our performance tests. This model's only downside is that it doesn’t come with a control panel.

Although the design of the DASH No-Drip Belgian Waffle Maker isn't very luxurious with its plain plastic housing, the build quality is excellent. The lid hinges are solid, the waffle plates are coated in an effective layer of non-stick.

Unfortunately, there is one issue: this model lacks a control panel. For the price point it’s at, this is a clear drawback.

Overall Usability Scoring

The BLACK+DECKER WMD200B is very easy to use overall. It can be operated with just one hand, from lifting the lid to flipping it. 

We also rate the cleanability of this waffle maker highly. Besides the non-stick waffle plates, which reduce batter residues, the add-on drip tray can help protect your countertop from any excess batter that spills out from the baking chamber.

It does get tricky, though, when you have to clean the tiny nooks and crannies of the waffle maker. Some parts are so small that it’s impossible to reach in and scrub out the dried batter residues.

Using the DASH waffle maker is easy overall — plug it in, wait until the READY indicator lights up, and start pouring your batter!

The lack of a control system is troublesome, though. You can't adjust the browning or doneness to your liking. Instead, you'll have to time the cooking process to get your desired browning level.

On the plus side, safety and cleanability are both excellent for this model.

Overall Performance Scoring

Our head chef labeled the waffles made by the WMD200B as “decently tasty.” Unfortunately, the coloration and texture of the waffle could still use some improvements.

Our test unit has a recurrent issue with undercooking one side of its waffles, lending to each waffle having an uneven coloring and a mushier texture on the undercooked side.

The DASH No-Drip performed acceptably in both performance tests. However, it was found lacking in one key area: cooking a waffle's crust to a nice color tone. The waffle maker failed to make waffles with our desired golden-brown tone in both test recipes.

Fortunately, the texture and flavor were spot on. So, for breakfasts and snacks, the DASH No-Drip belgian waffle maker won’t disappoint.

Both the Black+Decker WMD200B Double and the DASH No-Drip Belgian waffle makers are considered “super-sized” in their respective classes … but for different reasons.

The WMD200B features a large, bulky baking chamber that fits two sets of 7-inch waffle plates. With them, you can cook two Belgian waffles all at the same time. This makes the WMD200B a great option for large families or those who regularly cook large batches of waffles.

On the other hand, the DASH No-Drip Belgian waffle maker has just one set of waffle plates. However, measuring over 8 inches wide, the DASH No-Drip’s plates are huge. The plates are divided into four quadrants, each capable of cooking one 4-inch waffle.

So, in one full batch, you can cook four small waffles with the DASH No-Drip. If you prefer the smaller size of mini waffles and also need to cook large batches often, the DASH No-Drip should also be a decent choice next to the WMD200B.

As for the “No-Drip” portion of the name, this waffle maker has two large trenches on either side of the waffle plates to catch spilled batter.
