Question from Debra

Hi Debra: Long time follower. I use your website all the time to find things I need. Is there a waffle iron that you know of with a suitable non-toxic non-stick surface? My daughter is at college and she is asking for one so want to do my best to get her something healthy. Thanks so much.

Debra’s Answer

Some years ago we had this question and could find only one cast iron waffle maker that didn’t have a Teflon finish.

Now, there are a number of choices for wafflemakers.

I’ll list them here to make it easy for you to compare, because I know waffles are a favorite.

There are two types to choose from. If you want an electric waffle-maker, you can now buy them with a ceramic-based nonstick finish. Much less toxic than Telfon, but as I’ve noted elsewhere, these finishes tend to wear down and get more sticky with time.

There are also old-fashioned cast-iron waffle makers that you put on a stovetop gas burner. I bought one of these and it just arrived today.

The reason I bought a waffle iron is because there are now recipes for gluten-free waffles! Yay! I’ve been missing waffles!

I haven’t tried any of these yet, but here are some to experiment with:

There’s more online, but I think that’s enough for now. You can always search for “almond flour waffle.”
