Waring WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker

We just got a Waring WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker – and we love it! We are really lucky to have this one to try as the owner of the vacation home that we are staying in right now just bought one for the house.

We had been thinking about buying a waffle maker for home because the boys love their waffles but never quite got around to getting one. Now we definitely have to buy a Waring WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker when we get home!

The Waring WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker gets 4.5 Stars on Amazon with over 170 reviews and we can see why it is so highly rated.

As soon as you take it out of the box you can tell that it is good quality. It certainly feels very solid and robust in quality.

The great thing about the Waring Double Belgian-Waffle Maker is of course that you can make 2 waffles at a time. This is a really great feature if you have more than one family member waiting at the table for those waffles – it really speeds things up!

The instructions were very easy to follow. Really you just plug it in and away you go. It didn’t take very long to heat up.

There is a handy measuring cup for the waffle mix. Just make sure you spread out the mixture onto the waffle iron so that you get that perfect looking waffle (OK I admit I didn’t do that the first time)!

Just follow the same process and the Waring Double Belgian-Waffle Maker will quickly cook 2 perfect waffles.

When we get one for home I am going to keep one side dedicated to gluten free waffles only – another benefit of the double waffle maker as you can keep the risk of gluten cross contamination (a big issue for us gluten free people) to a minimum.

There is a 6 setting browning control so everyone can have their perfect waffle. The depth and size of the waffle seems just right too. It was evenly cooked, and the setting number 3 seemed to be perfect for how the boys like their waffle.

We also liked that you do not seem to have to use oil with this waffle maker. The non stick surface seemed to work perfectly without it as the waffles all came out easily and still all in one piece!

Clean up was really easy too. Really there just wasn’t any clean up as the waffle came out so well out of the machine and didn’t even leave any crumbs behind.

So we are really pleased with the Waring Double Belgian-Waffle Maker. Amazon has it at a great deal for $95 with Free Shipping.

If you are looking for a single waffle maker then theWaring Pro Stainless Steel single Belgian Waffle Maker WWM450PC also gets very good reviews. This is available for $57.95 Shipped on Amazon

Wittlebee Box Coupon

We have had a couple of Wittlebee Boxes delivered and we really love the selection and quality of clothes we have received. It has even got my 6 year old son interested in the clothes he is wearing – he loves opening the box and seeing what is inside!

One particular thing that we love about Wittlebee is their customer service. They genuinely want customers to be happy with the box they receive. Their customer service is excellent and unlike most online companies these days you can actually talk to someone on the telephone. The CEO even gives you his number so that you can send him texts!

Here are our previous Wittlebee Reviews so that you can see exactly what we got in our boxes.

No need for a coupon just Click Here to get your Wittlebee $10 off deal.

You can cancel or suspend your Wittlebee membership at any time. And their customer service is excellent!

How Do Wittlebee Know What You Want?

You really do get the feeling from the start of ordering on Wittlebee to the moment you open your box that this is a company who want you to be happy with their service. How rare is that these days?

You start with a fun online set of questions so that they can see what kind of items you need (shorts, pants, dresses, etc), what colors you like, what weather you need the clothes for, and you can even say what you would prefer not to receive in your Wittlebee Box. At any point you can speak to a stylist on the phone.

When I first signed up I remember wondering how they were really going to know my style. I am very picky! But somehow they really do seem to get it right. Out of the 16 items I have received from Wittlebee there is only one that I would probably not have bought myself. I really think that is impressive!

They also take notice of sizing. It is really difficult to get pants and shorts to fit my youngest son as he is tall but narrow! Most items we try on in stores just don’t fit. Wittlebee must have been listening to my notes about his size because everything in the box has actually fit him! So whatever specific needs you have for your Wittlebee Box, tell them about it. They will listen!

You can change your Wittlebee style preference as often as you want. Easy as that!

Wittlebee Box Savings

Of course I wanted to work out just how much money I had saved with my Wittlebee Box. In the picture above I show all the items that I could find priced online. I worked out that these 5 items alone in the Wittlebee Box would have cost me $70 – and that is without tax and shipping included.

Here are the details:

American Apparel Shirt $11.00
Crazy 8 Shorts $4.99
Gioberti Shorts $29.50
Crazy 8 Plaid Shorts $8.99
Star Wars Shirt $15.99

Total $70

Of course I have 3 other items in the Wittlebee Box – 2 shirts and another pair of shorts. The shorts are probably my least favorite in the box. Wouldn’t have bought them myself but I would guess the retail is around $10 to $15.

The shirts are my personal favorites. The Crazy 8 shirt is really excellent quality. I checked on their website and couldn’t find the exact shirt but similar ones were on sale for $10.95 – was surprised at this as I would have expected to pay at least $20 for that kind of quality.

The red Surf Club shirt is my absolute favorite out of the whole box. The fabric is just so soft – when I hug my son when he is wearing it I realized it reminds me of the soft high quality fabric he had as a baby! Bringing back some nice memories! I would expect to pay at least $20 for this type of quality shirt.

Of course my son’s favorite is the Star Wars shirt!

Overall I would say that once again there was more than $100 worth of clothing in my Wittlebee Box. The whole Wittlebee Box selection is so well put together – most of the clothes will mix and match so you have lots of combinations of different outfits.

Changes this month are that you will get 6 items in your Wittlbee Box, not 8, but the value will stay the same at around $100. At first to be honest I was not that pleased at the change. But having really thought about it now I think it is a good thing. I would rather have higher value, higher quality clothes in my Wittlebee Box. I have been very surprised by the high quality and good design of the items I have received so far. I am sure that 6 items will still offer exceptional value.

Wittlebee Wants You To Be Happy

Not many companies give you the personal text contact details of the CEO. In fact I can’t think of any other company which does. For me the goes a long way to showing that Wittlebee is a company that doesn’t just say it wants for you to be happy with their product, it actually does something about it.

I contacted them this month as one of the items I received in my Wittlebee Box was a duplicate of an item we got last month. Immediately I got a reply saying that not only that they would replace the item but also that they would send an additional item by way of an apology. I got my reply within less than an hour and I would expect that I will receive the new items very soon ( I will let you know when I do)!

So what are you waiting for? You can now get your first Wittlebee Box for just $29.95 with my very special $10 discount coupon. Just click on the link below to get that discount on your Wittlebee Box!

Wittlebee Box Coupon

I have received 2 boxes courtesy of Wittlebee. My opinions are very much my own and I would recommend Wittlebee to my sister, best friend and strangers on the street who ask me where I got my son’s outfit from (yes this has happened) because I think that Wittlebee is an amazing company!

Will The New Disney Pixar Brave Movie Exceed Our Expectations?

Disney Pixar has set the bar high. Ever since the first Pixar movie, Toy Story was released in 1995 the studio has been an enormous success. We have come to expect amazing things from Pixar and usually they deliver.

Will Brave leave audiences astounded as with 2010 Toy Story 3, or largely underwhelmed as they were with last years movie Cars 2?

Brave is the first Pixar movie to have a female lead character. Great news for all of us out there who want to present our daughters with more of a strong role model than our childhood of Cinderella and Aurora gave us (although yes we still love the traditional Disney Princesses).

Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) is a princess who wants to take charge of her own destiny. And she does it by wielding bows and arrows – a popular theme for girls in movies this year it seems. Katniss of The Hunger Games would be proud.

We were lucky enough to see a preview of the art work and hear Pixar shading art director Tia Kratter talk about the Brave movie at the 2011 D23 event in Anaheim. The art work and attention to detail are of course amazing. That is what we have come to expect from Pixar. As with all Pixar movies the research was extensive and meticulous.

Disney Pixar Brave is set in the highlands of Scotland and the team Pixar team made several visits just to get the details right. No doubt the animation and technical side of things will be amazing – certainly the Pixar Brave trailers show that it is.

But no movie is a success if the story isn’t right. Has Pixar hit the mark with Brave?

Merida is proving to be a difficult teenager for her parents. Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) and The King (Billy Connolly) try and raise her in the traditions of the kingdom but of course she is a rebellious teen and very much has her own ideas when she is told that she must choose a husband. No waiting for the glass slipper to fit for Merida!

Merida flees the kingdom and in true fairytale tradition meets an evil witch along the way who offers to help her change her mother’s mind about her imminent betrothal. Unfortunately the plan goes horribly wrong (no surprise there) and her mother is transformed into a Bear.

Merida is fighting against family tradition and wants to be her own woman but will we find her a sympathetic character? Will those target merchandizing audience of girls want to be Merida and have their parents but them the dress, shoes, books, and no doubt the bows and arrows?

Very early reviews of the Disney Pixar Brave movie are rather mixed right now. While it is almost universally acknowledged that the movie is stunning technically, some feel that the movie just doesn’t touch the emotions in quite the way we expect from a Pixar movie. Perhaps this is just a case of Pixar having raised the bar so high with the majority of it’s movies that everything is just a very hard act to follow.

We will of course be watching Disney Pixar’s Brave movie as soon as we possibly can – so watch out for our review!
