If you need a good full-size waffle maker to serve your family breakfast in the morning, the Presto Flipside Belgian waffle maker represents a decent choice. On the other hand, if you want a compact waffle maker to bring with you on your trips or for making light snacks, take the Crownful 4-inch Mini waffle maker.
The Presto Flipside Belgian bakes 7-inch waffles, the standard size for Belgian waffles. On the other hand, the Crownful Mini bakes smaller 4-inch waffles. You can bake several of them to create a full breakfast platter, or you can bake one or two as snacks.
While the PResto Flipside Belgian waffle maker is a full-size model, the Crownful is compact and lightweight. It can fit easily inside a backpack, which is why it’s super popular among travelers and hikers.
