So, I decided to try a recipe that put cinnamon roll dough into the waffle iron for Valentine's Day - and I'm STILL trying to get the crusted-on brown sugar off my non-stick waffle iron. I'd like to replace it with a waffle iron with removable plates so I can soak them in the sink (no dishwasher here - rather, I AM the dishwasher). I'd consider an all-in-one item that includes a panini press, since I have the same challenge with that appliance as well.
What experiences have people had? It looks like a George Foreman grill might fit the bill but I'd really like to hear what other people use.
