Chef’s Choice Waffle Cone Maker

Waffle Cone Maker

Walk into almost any ice cream parlor (and the first thing that you’ll notice is a delicious, warm smell. It’s not the ice cream, it’s the smell of homemade waffle cones. Or, at least, it was the standard and should still be. A lot of chain-type ice cream shops have nixed the from-scratch waffle cones and, while there are plenty of ice cream stores and frozen yogurt shops that still carry on the tradition, you can always get some satisfaction by making the cones at home.

This is the Chef’s Choice Waffle Cone Maker. It is basically a waffle iron that makes very, very thin waffles. When the just cooked waffle comes out of the iron, it is wrapped around a cone-shaping cone and left to crisp up one its own. The finished cones can obviously be filled with ice cream or any other treat that comes to mind. And, of course, you’ll get the smell of freshly cooked waffle cones each time you use the iron – which alone is almost reason enough to consider getting one.

This isn’t a gadget that you absolutely need at home, but if you like waffle cones (I do!) and ice cream, it might very well be worth it. Chef’s Choice also makes a waffle cone mix to help streamline the process if you’re looking for something a bit faster than “from scratch” for that ice cream parlor speed, too.

    Our family has a pizzelle iron that works great for making smaller cones and of course is dual purpose. (In fact, any pizzelle recipe doubles as a cone recipe. My favorite has always been anise … but lemon with some raspberry sorbet would be a heavenly treat.)

    If I were to buy a waffle cone iron, it would definitely be this one: http://www.skeppshult.com/en/product/0012/

    But I don’t think I will, ’cause that baby is heavy. And I move house too much for heavy stuff.

    Great item! I would die for one of these but alas being in the UK I can’t get it here. I checked Amazon UK but no luck and the US site isn’t shipping outside the US. Ebay has a few options but heavily overpriced. If anyone finds it within the UK (online or otherwise) let me know!

    I would love to make my own cornettos.

    the UK sucks… why can’t you buy these things in the UK?… oh yeah silly me i had forgotten then… the government will not allow anything considered to be frivolous or fun into our mundane, grey and increasingly cr4p country.

    Solomon you can buy the waffle maker from most US online stores and then expect to pay lot$ to get it sent to the UK. then expect the government to levy a customs charge at your doorstep when its delivered and THEN you need a 110V to 240V step up transformer.

    to be honest it might be cheaper (and more fun) to fly to Italy and buy a proper cone each time you need one.

    I mailed Chef’s Choice and asked if they maigh be available in the UK or europe…. the answer sadly was ‘no’. surely there is a gap in the market?

What do you think?
