EJOYWAY Waffle Cone Maker

Head to your stove to make custom cones

Instead of relying on a device plugged into a wall, this waffle iron is designed for use on your stovetop. It has two sides that close together and create a honeycomb pattern on thin waffles. The long handle will keep your hand away from the hot surfaces. You can use this iron with temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and it’s also great for crepes or egg roll wrappers.

Brentwood Appliances Waffle Cone Maker

Three temperature settings

This adorable waffle maker has indicator lights on the top so you know when the power is on and when it's ready for cooking. The dial on the lid lets you control the temperature, with three settings available. When your waffles are ready, make sure to carefully open the top and avoid escaping steam. A rolling cone is included for the perfect shape every time. 

Sweet treats 

Commercially-produced cones may have additives and preservatives, but with a homemade cone, you know exactly what’s in the recipe. All of these options will make you an ice cream cone, but we think the CucinaPro Waffle Cone Maker is the best option for most people. Including both a cone roller and a waffle bowl press lets you switch up how you enjoy your frozen dessert when the mood strikes. Plus, the non-stick surfaces are so easy to clean.

For anyone wanting to fine-tune the cook of their waffle, consider the Brentwood Appliances Waffle Cone Maker. You pick the temperature setting from the three options offered on the dial. And the indicator lights keep track of when the iron is ready for use. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to enjoy a crispy, homemade treat!
