The Ambiano Belgian waffle iron from ALDI has an unusual set of asymmetrical grids, i.e.: the bottom grid is deeper than the upper grid, producing a waffle with trapezoidal profile from the side.

The finished waffle baked for 5 minutes on the darkest setting has a similar texture and mouth-feel as those from our older irons: an audibly crisp exterior and cake-like interior. Different batters might produced different results. My batter is made from scratch. For the best presentation, I serve them bottom side up.

We'll keep it until it burns out or the nonstick flakes off. I sprayed the grids only once before the initial waffle. On the next batch I'll skip the spraying because the grids appear to have become seasoned from the initial spray and the butter in the batter.
