You heard it here first, people. We here at Appliances Online have it on good authority that banana bread has become about as cool as a pair of MC Hammer pants, and that to order it in a café is basically the same thing as announcing, via loudspeaker, that your idea of a good time is listening to New Kids on the Block on a Sony Discman while wearing a backwards baseball cap and pumping up the tongue of your lime green Reebok Pumps before launching into a particularly energetic dance routine choreographed almost exclusively out of ‘running man’ manoeuvres.

Let’s face it, for those of you still hanging on by a thread to banana bread with the reasoning “it’s healthy,” we have some news which may shock you: it’s not. Just as muffins are no more than “bald cupcakes,” banana bread is generally packed full of refined sugars, trans fats, and only the slightest suggestion of actual fruit.

So if you’re going to eat something bad for you, you might as well enjoy the experience!

Ladies and gentleman, may I introduce to you:

The Waffle

Aw yeah, that’s more like it!

Now that’s a funky food item if ever I saw one. Versatile, crisp and patterned with a pleasing assortment of three-dimensional squares, the waffle is the Pharrell Williams to banana bread’s MC. Most certainly, if you were looking for a menu item that would guarantee the imminent possession of luck, waffles would be my recommendation.

Banana bread, get out, you are responsible for all that’s wrong with the world and nobody loves you.

Luckily for the entirety of humanity, the good people at Breville are soon to launch the most amazeballs waffle iron you could ever imagine, called the Breville Waffle Pro™.

Like seriously, you guys. If this waffle maker was a man, I would marry him and have ten thousand of his delicious, glutenous babies.

I first met the Breville Waffle Pro™ yesterday, and fell instantly in love:

Looking at this, you’re probably thinking: “Sure that’s an okay-looking waffle maker, but whatevs bro. How good can it really be?” At which point I’d put you in a headlock and start screaming the following product benefits into your ear until you succumbed, in tears.


This Breville waffle maker has a thing that’s actually called ‘Waffle IQ’ (not just a thing I made up to sound funny). Waffle IQ automatically calculates how much time is needed to cook your waffle to golden perfection (the user can choose from 12 browning settings and 5 specialty settings: Belgium, classic, chocolate, buttermilk and custom) – and then it will provide a countdown timer so you can know the precise moment at which your waffle will be ready for consumption. YAY!


NO I’M NOT MAKING THIS STUFF UP. The ‘waffle moat’ is a unique design feature of the Breville Waffle Pro™ that catches any waffle run-off (caused by you being an idiot who fills your waffle iron with too much batter) and prevents excess batter running down the sides of the appliance or onto the bench:

And because the waffle moat is coated in the same non-stick coating as the iron itself, you can lift the mess off without needing to scrape it for hours in an irate fury after you’ve finished cooking, a la Homer Simpson:

Yes, non-stick! Which is extremely useful in the instance of waffles, because the stickier the waffle, the more delicious!

I’ve been waffling on for probably too long now, haven’t I?

Get it? Waffling? On??


Fine. Here’s your basic waffle recipe, whatever.

Makes this:

3 eggs
1 ¾ cups milk
125g unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups self-raising flour
¼ cup brown sugar


1. Select ‘Belgium’ setting and dial up 6 on the browning control dial. Preheat until orange light flashes up and the words HEATING disappear.

2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla in a jug and set aside.

3. Combine flour and sugar in a medium-sized bowl, make a well in the centre and whisk milk mixture to form a smooth batter.

4. Using waffle dosing cup, pour ½ cup of batter into each waffle square, as so:

5. Close lid and cook until timer has finished and ready beep has sounded 3 times. Your waffles should look like this:

6. Repeat with remaining batter until your desired quantity of waffle is attained.

7. Consume with a big dumb grin on your face, like this guy:

The Breville Waffle Pro™ becomes available in October, from your favourite appliance retailer. (Uh, Appliances Online, obviously).

Until then, waffle on, peeps! (Or, er, don’t, because you won’t have a Breville Waffle Pro™. D’oh!)
