For $12.99, it's worth a gamble.  It's no big secret that many of ALDI's house brand groceries are made in the same factories and facilities as nationally advertised brands.  Much of their bread comes from Bimbo Bakeries USA.  If their Parkview Bratwurst, Italian sausage and breakfast sausage aren't Johnsonville in disguise, the latter would probably be hauling them into court over the nearly identical wording on the label.  There's even an advertising sign that claims "You May Not Recognize The Name But You'll Recognize The Taste."


So on today's excursion, we'll grab one of these and see how well it performs.  Stay tuned for updates!

you and your Mrs. wear out another waffle iron? Or is the price low enough to encourage experimentation? :)

Tried to clean the grids on the old one with Easy-Off Fume Free (in the blue can, supposedly safe for most surfaces) and the nonstick coating started flaking off.

The 2-year warranty is handled by Kalorik whose own single non-flipping waffle iron lists for $60.00. Gonna break it in on Sunday.

Would it not be better to spend a wee bit more on one with detachable plates? These could then be popped into the dishwasher.

I have never washed my waffle irons I wait till they are cool and use a pastry brush to brush them off. Never have any problem with any waffles sticking even with the old non stick one.

Love shopping at Aldi!!

I love the prices at Aldi! It is almost like couponing without coupons!! It is almost like 1980's grocery prices!! One of my favorite things from Aldi is the laundry detergent, the detergent is called Tandil. They have three versions of Tandil: one comes in red jug, a green jug, and a maroon jug. I learned about Aldi from a guy on YouTube, his name is jaykay18. He reviews a lot of Aldi kitchen gadgets, and has "Wash day Wash in" with another YouTube user named sharkie626. He even has "Detergent Day" videos

Aldi Tandil

In Aust Tandil is Aldi's range of washing up liquid. The cheapo one is Unimat and Tandil is the super concentrate 500ml bottles. Their washing detergents are Clean & Fresh lemon in HUGE boxes and all of their concentrate powders and liquids are Almat

UK Aldi...

Could be doing with really tightening up their definitions on their website.

For example, searching for "detergents" doesn't reveal their powders; searching for "washing powder" displays the powder, but includes powdered foodstuffs!

Idiotic. They want to get a bloody grip.

Get 'em while they're hot or as I always say: "Pancakes are patient but a waffle waits for no one."
