The key to choosing this pair is to ask yourself whether you want the ability to bulk cook or not.
The Dash No-Drip Belgian has a set of large waffle plates divided into four smaller quadrants. Each quadrant can make a 4-inch square waffle. So, when filled, this waffle maker can make four waffles.
On the other hand, the Euro Cuisine WM520 is a standard-size waffle maker. But the waffles it bakes are special: they have a heart-shaped pattern, bringing a bit more visual interest to the meal.
It can only make one at a time, though, unlike the DASH No-Drip Belgian.
So, in the end, if you have a large family and need to cook many waffles regularly, invest in the DASH No-Drip. But if you don’t need the bulk-cooking ability and like the heart-shaped patterning of the Euro Cuisine WM520, then go ahead and pick one up!
