The Black+Decker WMD200B Double waffle maker is the mirror opposite to the Nostalgia MWF5AQ.

While the WMD200B is able to cook two full-size (7-inch) Belgian waffles at once, the MWF5AQ does not. With a single pair of waffle plates measuring about 4 inches across, this model can only cook one mini-sized waffle at a time.

If you have a large family or need to cook several batches of waffles daily, the Black+DEcker WMD200B will be a good, affordable choice.

But if you only need to cook small waffles as snacks or have a waffle maker that you can bring along with you on your travel, the Nostalgia MWF5AQ is as good as any mini waffle makers on the market.
