A waffle baker, grill, and griddle, this three-in-one appliance comes in handy during breakfast, lunch, dinner, and after school. Key to the unit's versatility are two 8-inch-square cooking plates--one set into the product's bottom and the other into the hinged top. On one side the plates form grids for making four waffles at once. Flipped over to show their flat sides they're capable of top and bottom grilling a sandwich or steak. To create griddle space, the top opens up flat, forming two 8-inch-square cooking surfaces for all foods that love a griddle--such as pancakes, hash browns, and eggs. Channels send grease to spouts in the griddles' corners, where it drains away. Nonstick to release food easily and wipe clean, the cooking plates also can be removed for scrubbing. A heat control offers high, low, and medium temperatures. With its chrome housing and stay-cool black synthetic handles, this 900-watt appliance looks great on the counter. Afterward, the cord wraps around the hinge, plus you can stand the unit upright for compact storage. It measures 11-1/4 inches wide, 5 inches high, and 11-3/4 inches deep and carries a one-year warranty against defects. The plates will be slightly loose when the lid is open but this is normal with waffle/grill makers that are inter changeable.The plates are secured by little metal clips. The clips secure the plates to the griddle. You can take them out and flip them to make waffles.--Fred Brack

Just like my grandmother's
So I've had this for over a year and it's well loved and well used. I tend to use the waffle side more than the griddle plates because it's what I bought it for.
Cooks evenly, no hot spots (which is surprising) obviously protect your hands and don't touch anything metal while this is on or has been recently on. It's the old fashioned kind, it's not encased in plastic, it's metal. Don't forget this or you're gonna burn yourself and blame the machine which is unfair to the machine.
I've used the griddle open faced I've pressed sandwiched in it like a panini press but my favorite and predominant use is the waffle iron.
I'm a kitchen gizmo person. I know I can do most things without them but why when there's a gizmo and gadget for it? More specifically though I bought this because I wanted something other than Belgian waffles and I remembered that my grandmother had a waffle iron that looked dead on this though I cannot remember if her plates were removable.
Any who, my grandmother passed away a few years back and I polled my sisters trying to see if anyone remembered the brand, no one was positive but my oldest sister told me she thought it was a black and decker so I took to the Amazon.
Found this beauty and immediately bought it. Second it got delivered I had it out cleaned and ready to go ( those delivery notifications are awesome. Once I knew it was out for delivery I timed it with my normal carrier's route and had the batter ingredients out and ready to roll)
I would caution you to be careful about the grease you use and to have something to collect it should it get too warm and slide off the plates.
I use bacon grease coz that's how I was taught and it's wonderful but obviously thin and will leak out the corner if you use the correct amount to grease the iron.
I've just put it on a part of the counter I can clean super easy between batches and be done with it.
Both of my sisters covet this bad boy but they're on their own. I live a few thousand miles away now so they just have to get their own. Last weekend they asked about it and it's what got me thinking its time to review this bad boy. Actually if I remember correctly I paid a bit more for it that what its pricing for now but honestly I'd do it all over again and for more.
Good wafflemakers especially not Belgian waffle makers are hard to come by.
Don't get me wrong I ALSO have a Belgian wafflemaker but this, this is what trotted out on my counter every couple of weekends.

Best Griddle/Grill/Waffle Iron
By T. Strube
This is one of the best waffle makers I have found. It has removable trays for easy cleaning. The shell has barely anything in it for easy cleaning. The light on the front lets you know when it is heating up and when it is at temperature. The knob has a fluid motion instead of preset settings. It does have settings listed on it. One set of setting for when it is used as a griddle, and one set for when it is used as a waffle iron. When used as a griddle, it can be used open for eggs, bacon, pancakes, and other items. It can also be used as a closed griddle for sandwiches, hamburgers, and others.
I have used it to cook waffles, sandwiches, and hamburgers. All have been cooked evenly and fully. The hamburgers were done in about 6-7 minutes and sandwiches in about 3-4 minutes. This cuts down on time since each side would have to be cooked in a skillet or open griddle. With this, both sides are cooked at the same heat, for the same amount of time. When using it with greasy items, such as hamburgers, it has a drip trough for the grease to run to and run out of the drip spout. Not cooking it in its own grease helps to lower the grease content.

A Great Value that Lasts and Lasts....
I have uploaded a picture of our 8 1/2 year old Black & Decker G48TD that was purchased in the summer of 2002, side-by-side with the new replacement I just bought this week. The old one was still working, but the no-stick finish was finally worn through, and what looked like rust was showing.
I am very happy with how long this appliance lasted. We use ours every Saturday morning for either pancakes, waffles, or french toast. That means we used ours more than 400 times.
The new one looks exactly the same...at least I don't notice any design changes.
I like the fact that the G48TD is a waffle maker and griddle in one. It cuts down on the number of small appliances I need.
The no stick finish is actually more like a stick resistant finish. After about 6 months you'll end up needing cooking spray to keep things from sticking. But it works great, and lasts a long time.
In short, I have no trouble recommending this product!
