The main difference between the Chefman Anti-Overflow and the Euro Cuisine WM520’s lies in the patterning of their waffle plates. While the former is imprinted with the traditional Belgian-style pattern, the Euro Cuisine WM520 has a beautiful heart-shaped pattern (also called “Norwegian-style patterning”).
Both models bake waffles that measure 7 inches across. However, the Chefman’s Belgian-style plates are deeper, so the resulting waffles are much thicker than the thin waffles that the Euro Cuisine WM520 produces. This makes the Chefman Anti-Overflow a great option if you want to cook a filling waffle in the morning.
However, if you want to spice up the look of your breakfast platter, the beautiful heart-shaped waffles from Euro Cuisine WM520 will do the trick. These heart-shaped waffles will be especially fitting for meals around festive times like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
