-- Little known fact: The first United States patent for a waffle iron was issued to Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York on August 24, 1869. The heart shaped waffle iron is the most common in Sweden, but it didn't come into existence until the 19th century. However, Swedes were creating waffles over a fire with a waffle iron since the 17th century.

-- Waffling food other than waffles is not just a novelty but an innovation leading to a great end product, all while giving the cook the bonus pleasure of doing something cool, fun, and vaguely nerdy (or giving a reluctant eater — your child, say — a great reason to dig in). Waffled bacon reaches perfect crispness without burned edges, cooks super fast in the two-sided heat source, and leaves behind just the right amount of fat to waffle some eggs. Waffled Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Pressed Potato and Cheese Pierogi, and Waffled Meatballs all end up with dimples just right for trapping their delicious sauces. A waffle iron turns leftover mac ’n’ cheese into Revitalized Macaroni and Cheese, which is like a decadent version of a grilled cheese sandwich with its golden, buttery, slightly crisp exterior and soft, melty, cheesy interior.
