I have an electric stove (unfortunately) but what I found best for making the perfect waffles on this iron was to turn on two burners at the same time and set each of them on medium high heat (#7 on my particular stove that is numbered 1-9). I took apart the waffle iron and placed each side on its own burner so they could both be heating at the same time. I found this to be very important otherwise one side of the iron will cool too much and make for an unevenly cooked waffle.
Once both sides of the iron were heated I brushed them lightly with real butter and then poured the batter into one side of the iron (I found that just slightly less than a 1 cup measure is the perfect amount without spilling over). After that I connected the the second piece on top of the piece with the batter in it and once connected immediately flipped it over and started a timer for 2 minutes. It's important to flip as soon as you connect the two sides. After two minutes flip again and set another 2 minute timer. This, for me anyway, created an absolutely perfect waffle.
Here is the recipe I have found works great after trying a couple of different ones:
I hope you decide to give this waffle iron a try. In my opinion it really is so unnecessary to purchase anything different as this little iron works great, is priced cheap and takes up very little space for storage. I wouldn't buy anything else!
UPDATE (one week later):
So, I scoured the internet to find out how I could get the rust off of a cast iron waffle iron easily and found that using a metal with a lower valence would return the rust to its previous state (un-rust it, if you will). I soaked each side in a glass pan filled with water, a little salt, a little baking soda and a medium-sized piece of aluminum. I made sure that the aluminum was touching the skillet. After a few hours, it seemed to be working. I then dried the skillet in the oven at 300 deg. After that, I used a pastry brush to brush on flaxseed oil over the entire surface. I used an old cloth to wipe off as much as could. Then, I baked the pans in the oven upside down for 1 hour at 450 deg. I let them cool and then repeated the process 4 or 5 times. This produced a beautiful finish. I was able to make waffles, but when I went to clean the irons, I noticed that some of the nonstick surface had come off in a few places. The waffles turned out really well and were tasty. But, I'm still frustrated with this iron. I'm going to try to add a few more layers and see how that works.
