I apologize in advance. This is weird. But a foodie blogger put up a photo of a beautiful restored waffle maker she bought at “Toaster Central,” describing it as “adorable” which is true judging by the photo, so I had to go look, and suddenly I was catapulted into another dimension, where it is cool to refurbish old waffle irons and patriotic, artistic and healthy to own them.
I already have a perfectly good waffle iron so that’s that. But I’m just saying… if you’re in the market, you might want to think about one of those lovely chrome-and-bakelite numbers.
