    Hence the Lagavulin...apply liberally.

    I'll have to send you a picture of the waffle iron my wife was adamant about getting. To give you a rough idea, it looks like James T. Kirk should be commanding it.

    I'm learning here that this topic appears to be a No Mans Land, a compromise, a détente if you will. Note the handmade storage cabinet is full. I gather that's the compromise.

    Ooooooh, so close, but that one actually has a somewhat reasonable footprint.

    Try this motherfucker on for size...if you have a 1000 sf kitchen.

    It would be just fine if, say, you owned a waffle restaurant and it got heavy use every day of the year. But if you use it only 2/365ths of the year? I imagine other options may be more practical.

    Or even if 3/3rds of your family were into waffles.


    That keyboard is goddamn awesome. At least it uses an existing heat source.

    But still, I'd be all like..."Waffles you say? Hm, no, still want a chorizo scramble and a side of bangers. But thanks."

    The handmade cabinet was designed specifically for this purpose...by her.
    Since when did the waffle iron need to be elevated? or flipped for that matter? I don't understand that.

    Is it fair of me to assume yours is a rhetorical question?

    Now I’m on the hunt for this pattern as the Fleur de lis is the international scout symbol and would be a big hit at scout camp.
