The Presto Flipside Belgian is a full-size, mid-tier Belgian waffle maker. It cooks 7-inch waffles and comes with high-end features like a flippable design and a built-in timer.
On the other hand, the DASH DMW001AQ Mini is a mini-size waffle maker with only one highlight: its small and compact form factor. Being no larger than a softball, it’s a popular choice for travelers since it can snugly fit inside backpacks and other luggage. At home, the DASH Mini becomes a great snack-maker with its bite-sized 4-inch waffles.
If you have a roomy budget and want something that can help you cook traditional Belgian-style waffles for breakfast and other meals, the Presto Flipside will be the one to choose.
Conversely, if you need a compact, affordable waffle maker that you can bring with you on the go or make little snacks with, then the DASH Mini is perfect!
