  12. Do not let the electrical cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  13. Do not allow appliances to come into contact with any materials that are flammable such as draperies, walls, etc.
  14. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  15. Use on a heat-resistant, flat-level surface only.
  16. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot food, hot water, hot oil, or other hot liquids.
  17. The cord to this appliance should be plugged into a 120V AC electrical outlet only.
  18. A short power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  19. To disconnect, remove the plug from the outlet.
  20. Always unplug after use. The appliance will remain ON unless unplugged.
    HOT SURFACES: This appliance generates heat during use. Proper precautions must be taken to prevent the risk of burns, fire, or other damage to persons or property.
  21. When using this appliance, provide adequate ventilation above and on all sides for air circulation. Do not allow this appliance to touch curtains, wall coverings, clothing, dish towels, or other flammable materials during use.
  22. Do not use the appliance for other than intended use. Use with wall receptacles only.


This appliance is hot during operation and retains heat for some time after turning OFF. Always use oven mitts when handling hot materials and allow metal parts to cool before cleaning. Do not place anything on top of the appliance while it is operating or while it is hot.

  1. All users of this appliance must read and understand this Instruction Manual before operating or cleaning this appliance.
  2. Do not leave this appliance unattended during use.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.


  1. A short power-supply cord (or detachable power-supply cord) is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  2. Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  3. If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used :
  4. The marked electrical rating of the cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance;
  5. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding type3-wire cord;
  6. The longer cord should be arranged so that it does not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

To prevent Plasticizers from migrating to the finish of the countertop or tabletop or other furniture, place NON-PLASTIC coasters or place mats between the appliance and the finish of the countertop or tabletop. Failure to do so may cause the finish to darken; permanent blemishes may occur or stains can appear.

If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other appliances.

Getting to know your waffle maker
Product may vary slightly from illustration

BELLA Classic Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker 1

  • The drip tray is included to collect the overflow of batter and crumbs.

Before Using For The First Time

  • Remove all parts included in the box.
  • Wash all the parts thoroughly (refer to the Cleaning and Maintenance section for more information).
    Your Waffle Maker may emit a small amount of smoke and/or odor when you use it for the first time. This is normal and harmless, however, we recommend that you do not eat the first waffle you make with the Waffle Maker.

Using Your Waffle Maker

  1. Plug the cord into your 120 V AC wall outlet. The Red Power Light will turn on indicating the appliance is ready for preheating.
  2. Set the Control Knob to your desired setting. The higher your setting, the darker your waffles will be. Experiment with the setting and different waffle batters to determine your ideal Waffle Maker settings.
    The Red Power Light will remain on until the appliance is unplugged.
  3. The Green Ready Light will turn off and the Waffle Maker will begin to preheat. The Green Ready Light will turn on when the appliance reaches the proper cooking temperature. This should take approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Once heated, ready times will be faster.
  4. When the Green Ready Light turns on, open the Waffle Maker, and apply a light layer of vegetable oil, olive oil, or canola oil to the cooking plates. Pour and spread the waffle batter evenly onto the lower plate so that the batter fills the lower plate and the peak areas of the plate are covered.
  5. Close the Waffle Maker and rotate the handle 180º clockwise (right) until it locks for cooking.
  6. When the Green Ready Light turns on again, rotate the handle 180º counter-clockwise (left) to unlock and then carefully open the Waffle Maker.
    Do not open the waffle maker for at least 1 min 30 seconds. This can cause the under-cooked waffles to break and they can be difficult to remove from the plates.
  7. If the waffles are not dark enough, close the Waffle Maker, rotate to lock, and then wait another 30 seconds. Repeat as needed.
  8. When you are satisfied with your waffles, use a non-metallic utensil to remove them from the heating plates.
  9. To make more waffles, close the Waffle Maker until the Green Ready Light comes on, then repeat from step 4.
  10. When finished baking waffles, set the heat setting to the lowest setting and remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  11. After it has sufficiently cooled, the heating plates may be wiped clean.

Locking And Unlocking Your Waffle Maker
Your Waffle Maker is unlocked only when the Control Knob is facing up. You can only open the Waffle Maker in the unlocked position.

Tips For Perfectly Baked Waffles

  1. Stir your waffle batter only until large chunks of dry ingredients are dissolved. Over-mixing the waffle batter can cause the waffles to be hard.
  2. Set the Control Knob to your desired setting. The higher your setting, the darker your waffles will be. The color and crispness of the waffles also depend on the batter used. Experiment with the setting and different waffle batters to determine your ideal Waffle Maker settings
  3. The exact amount of batter needed to make perfect full-sized waffles depends on the type and consistency of the batter. Use the same ladle or measuring cup each time to determine how much batter you need to fill the lower plate fully to cover the peaks in the plate.
  4. When making a softer variety of waffles, once they are baked, make sure to cut the waffles into halves or in 4 quarters and support them with a spatula at the bottom so it is easier to take them out from the plates, since softer waffles can break easily.
  5. When making large batches to serve at once, you can keep the waffles fresh & crisp by placing them in a preheated oven at 200°F. Take them out using oven mitts when you are ready to serve.
  6. To avoid waffles with a moist base, keep the waffles on a wire cooling rack. This will retain the  crispness of the waffles
  7. You can reheat your waffles in the waffle maker. Pre-heat the waffle maker on low setting. Once preheated, place the waffles on the lower plate so they fit the grooves correctly, then close the waffle maker and heat for 1 to 2 minutes, checking every 30 seconds to avoid burning.
  8. You can also freeze your waffles to eat later. After the freshly baked waffles have cooled completely, pack them in a covered container or plastic freezer bag. Make sure to separate the waffles with a sheet of wax paper between each waffle. To reheat the frozen waffles, place them in a preheated oven, toaster oven, or toaster until they are hot.

Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. Always turn off the appliance, unplug it, and allow it to cool down before cleaning.
  2. You can easily remove any excess oils or crumbs without disassembling the appliance.
  3. Never submerge the appliance in water or place it in the dishwasher.
  4. Use only plastic or wooden utensils on the heating plates. Metal may damage the plates.
  5. Use a soft cloth on the heating plates and occasionally a metal polish intended for stainless steel on the outer housing. Never use abrasive scouring pads or steel wool.
  6. If there is hardened batter on the plates, pour a little oil and let it sit for about 5-7 minutes. You can then wipe clean with a paper towel.
  7. Do not use the Waffle Maker for anything other than making waffles.
