IMPORTANT: This iron is priced to sell at 25% off the full rate because of pitting on one of the paddles.
It came to us with lots of carbon buildup on it, like many well used antique waffle irons. Upon cleaning it it was obvious that one of the paddles was left in the elements at one point, or it was married to another cleaner more pristine paddle. We have fully restored it but we call this lovely one "A tale of two paddles", because one has pitting and the other is near pristine.

These do not last long on our page. We get them once or twice a year and that's because they were a special line of waffle irons made by Griswold that feature a thinner waffle that's got a beautiful center star surrounded by hearts. We have one at home and it is the "go to" iron for weekend waffles. Just gorgeous, raised lettering, elegant design and a wonderful piece with which to cook. The short base has leveling pins in the center rather than leveling pins along the outside as some other models had. A special piece indeed!

DISCLAIMER: We have prepared this piece to be ready to use or displayed in a collection. All pieces are vintage, and therefore are not in perfect condition. Their history of use means small marks and inconsistencies, including residual carbon, which we feel give them a special charm. All items are sold as is, and we have done our best to present them as such. Please review all pictures and ask for further clarification if needed. Thank you! - Cast & Clara Bell
