Disney Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker

My 7-year-old son is a real Disney fan.  As a family we have all been to Disneyland in Florida and Euro Disney.  My son is absolutely obsessed with Mickey Mouse. His bedroom is covered in Mickey merchandise.  Wallpaper, curtains, duvet cover and soft toys.  You name it, he has got it and he is always looking for more.

I wanted to buy him something for doing so well at school, he came top in his math set that term and I was really struggling for gift ideas.

I searched the internet for weeks to find something suitable and wanted to get something that my son didn’t have already. I came across some Mickey Mouse flip waffle maker reviews online.  As present ideas go, this isn’t the first thing that came to mind. I was looking for maybe a Disney computer game or t-shirt but when looking at the positive reviews and the fact that Mickey Mouse’s face is inside the machine and out, I knew my son would love it.

I ordered it on the internet and when I opened the box to look through and check everything was in order, I was pleasantly surprised. The external casing is beautiful; it has a print of Mickey Mouse’s face on it. For a machine that is most likely mass produced, it is really well made. It has solid controls and although compact, the machine is a lot heavier and more solid than I thought it would be. The plates look sturdy and it certainly should last for a while as it looks reasonably durable.

Machine Specification

It makes one large Mickey Mouse face waffle at a time and has 800 watts of power. Quite powerful for a small, domestic machine. It has a red electric signal to tell you the waffle cooking is complete and you can use it with any waffle or pancake batter.

It has an internal Mickey Mouse design and a non-stick cooking surface. It has various heat settings, a cord that easily wraps around the machine neatly and rubber feet so it doesn’t slide whilst on the surface of wherever you are using it.

Lots of Fun! 

It is small and compact, cleans well and as the plates don’t heat up to a dangerous heat, I let my son, under close supervision, use the machine. The waffle maker makes waffles in the image of Mickey Mouse and they do actually look like Mickey too, not just a blob.

My son loves making waffles and covers his with sprinkles, banana, honey, chocolate and various other toppings.  Sometimes altogether and sometimes one at a time. He really loves the machine, and what is great, is we have a really nice family time together when we make the various waffle deserts. 

Delicious 

My family and I have now become waffle experts.  Trying to mix things up a little, my husband, son and I have little competitions to see who can make the best waffles and pancakes. We add various spices to our batter.  Sometimes we add a little sugar to the waffle to crisp them up and we are becoming quite inventive with some of our batter recipes, toppings and overall waffle creations. As this machine has a consistent heat and has a light to indicate when the waffles are ready, it makes really well cooked waffles and pancakes that are absolutely delicious.

Conclusion 

Seeing your family having so much fun making Mickey shaped waffles and pancakes would make this a worthy investment alone. I have to admit because of the lower price range, I thought it would be of a cheap standard but that is simply not the case. This machine is solid, easy to clean and makes really great food.  I really have been pleasantly surprised and if anything happens to it, I will definitely invest in another. Happy waffle making!
