I LOVE this waffle maker! Super simple and easy to use. I like the multiple choice settings to choose from for the way you want the waffle cooked. Takes no time to heat up, and depending on which setting you chose, makes the waffle very quickly. There are indicator lights which let you know when it is ready to use. Does not indicate when the waffle is done, but that is easy to tell without a light. Clean up is rather easy once done using. Takes up very little counter space, and is small if you prefer to store it in a cabinet instead.
