Presto 3510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker Review

by Lisa Whistler

Waffles are one of my favorite things to make for my husband and kids (and for myself!).  The Presto 3510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker makes waffle making convenient and easy.  It’s an 1100-watt Belgian waffle maker that creates waffles that are crispy on the outside and deliciously fluffy on the inside.  It comes with a 180 degree flip function that makes it easy to evenly distribute your favorite batter.  A countdown timer and digital display takes the guesswork out of knowing when the waffles are done.  Each waffle that comes out of it is 7 inches with extra-deep holes, perfect for filling with syrup, fruit, or anything else you can think of.  The waffles come out in four easy to cut sections, making them easy to share.  The non-stick surface is easy to clean, and once I’m done it locks in a vertical position for easy storage, although we use it so often it doesn’t stay put away for very long!

Pros:

  • Makes Perfectly Cooked Belgian Waffles: I can’t remember a single time when the waffles that came out of this machine weren’t perfectly cooked.  They’re just the way a waffle should be: crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside.  They come out with a perfect golden brown color and the holes are just right for any number of toppings. 

  • Non-Stick Surface: There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to scrape half of a stuck-on waffle out of a waffle maker.  With this FlipSide Maker this isn’t even an issue.  The waffles lift out easily once they’re done, making serving them (and cleaning up after them) a breeze.

  • 180 Degree Flip: Having the ability to flip your waffle maker makes it much, much easier to get an even coating on both plates.  This ensures that your waffles are perfectly shaped on both sides and that one side isn’t any thicker than another.  The waffles cook better this way as well, giving you perfect waffles again and again.

  • Easy Storage: With all the chaos that happens in my kitchen on a daily basis, having appliances that don’t take up too much space is a true blessing.  The FlipSide excels in this regard.  Once I’m done using it I can flip it and lock it in a vertical position.  It takes up very little counter space this way if I want to leave it out, and if I want to put it away for a while it fits perfectly on a shelf.

Cons:

  • Timer Not Connected to an On/Off Switch: Having a timer makes sure you know when your waffles are ready, but on this model the timer isn’t connected to any sort of on/off switch.  When the timer goes off it’s necessary to pull it cord out of the wall or the waffles will just keep cooking.  The timer is loud enough that you can’t ignore it, though, so the chances of walking off and forgetting about it are slim.

  • Batter May Spill a Bit: Having a bit of extra batter spilling out onto your waffle maker is a pretty common problem, and one that the FlipSide is not immune to.  However, I’ve noticed it leaks a little less than some of the other waffle makers I’ve used.  Cleanup is very easy with this model as well, so in the end it was only a very minor inconvenience.

Making waffles for my family is easier and more fun with the Presto Flipside.  The ability to flip the machine 180 degrees makes for even, perfectly cooked waffles every time.  The timer make sure you don’t overcook your breakfast treats, and the non-stick coating makes cooking and cleaning easy and quick.  Storing the device is very easy, though if you’re like me you probably won’t want to put it away.  All in all this appliance makes delicious waffles on a consistent basis.  If that sounds good to you you’ll love this machine.
