If you have used a Belgian waffle maker earlier, you will be familiar with the Chefman Anti-Overflow’s design. It has a rounded body, and the waffle plates are capable of baking 7-inch waffles.  A deep “anti-overflow” moat surrounds the plates to prevent excess batter from spilling out.

All these features, combined with the affordable price, make the Chefman Anti-Overflow a good option if you’re looking for a cheap option to bake waffles for your family.

On the other hand, the DASH No-Drip Belgian waffle maker will be a great choice if you regularly cook a large batch of waffles at home. The large waffle plates can simultaneously cook four 4-inch square waffles.

There are certain caveats, though: the DASH No-Drip Belgian doesn’t look as good as the Chefman Anti-Overflow, nor is it made of such sturdy materials. It also lacks features like a browning control dial. Nonetheless, some users may find the bulk-cooking ability well worth the money.
