Go to your local thrift stores or yard sales. I don't think you will find a good one that cheap new. It may take a while to find one.

Hayneedle says it made by Rome. Then you go to the Rome industries website they also make 2 pie Irons for waffles.
Eddie
Rome's Famous Pie Irons Since 1964
Search for "Rome waffle maker" on Amazon. Lots of cast iron choices for around $40.

But none made in the USA. I had posted one made in the USA, but then noticed it was cast aluminum, not iron, so I deleted that post.

I'm really surprised Lodge doesn't make one.

FYI
All of our foundry Seasoned Cast Iron and our Seasoned Carbon Steel products are manufactured in the USA and always will be. All Enameled Cast Iron products are made in China to our strict quality standards (why?). Our accessories come from multiple sources, some of which are American, and some overseas.
Are Lodge products made in the USA? - Lodge Cast Iron

PS. Although it's often suggested, I have never found cast iron at a thrift store or yard sale.

The Lodge products look great but no Waffle Irons.

Somewhat off-topic. I took all the cast iron pans out of my trailer and replaced them with light weight non-stick. T-Fal Professional series got high ratings on America's Test Kitchen. I had a cast iron griddle that weighed a ton. Tossed it and got a light aluminum one.

You might want to post this request to the Facebook group, Cast Iron Cooking, very knowledgeable and helpful group. A US made cast iron waffle maker will probably be old and rare thus expensive. I would not discount Asian made cast iron most of it is good quality for everyday use. If your looking for US made cast iron you limited to Lodge and few specialty foundys that that make frying pans.

They say the Old Fashioned Waffle Maker is "made" by Rome Industries. I can't prove it's made in the US, but that is what they are implying.

Either way, I don't see how a low tech thing like a cast iron waffle maker could be defective just because it was made in China. But if someone is boycotting China, then this might be a problem.

Yep.

That is perfectly fine, and was a trend for a lot of years. But now people are seeing the value of cast iron again. Non-stick pans have a notoriously short lifespan, and might even be unhealthy. I'm phasing mine out and going back to iron. My only concern with iron pans in the trailer is how heavy they are.

I've got the big Griswold griddle my father bought back in about 1952 and used outside on the barbeque for years.

I just acquired a skillet that was probably made in the 1930s and is as good as new. All you have to do is run used ones through the cleaning cycle in the oven and all remaining seasoning or cooking residue turns to dust and rinses off, leaving you with a brand new iron pan.

A few weeks ago I bought a new 8" Lodge iron skillet at Walmart for $9.88.

I'm torn. Maybe when the non-stick dies, I'll put the large round cast iron back in the trailer. But, I still have a large T-Fal Pro in the package, under the passenger seat.

Besides being so lightweight, the non-stick aluminum pans are so easy to clean and care for. Nice for saving water. But nothing can be stacked in them, in the trailer, without a towel or something protecting them from the non-stop earthquake while underway.

At home, I went with some high end stainless All Clad pans for a while, but the sticking was terrible. Then the enameled cast iron, but they are somewhat delicate, heavy, and they stick too. Recently got a Lodge 14" cast iron wok and it is outstanding

I have some of my Mother's old revere ware that they got as a wedding present. Great for steaming veggies and for sauces, but not frying. An old Revereware stainless coffee pot is still my favorite. The only weak link is the glass topknot.

I'm always looking for the simplest, easiest and longest lasting solution. Always striving to have the trailer ready to go at the drop of a hat and outfitted with it's own set of things that work. Of course, that goal never seems to get realized.

Seems that if you add the words "heart-shaped" to cast iron waffle, you get a lot more results.

My DW will never use cast iron. Too heavy. Heck, for Christmas I bought her a pro-grade Tramontina non-stick frying pan (one of her two old pans had plumb worn out and everything was sticking badly in it), and wouldn't you know, she won't use it! She complains that the handle is too long plus it's too heavy.


I love my wife, and I'm not put off by the fact that she's too heavy.... but from now on she can pick out her own Christmas gifts. I'm done.

I have a collection of over 30 cast iron waffle irons. I have payed from $12 to $60 at antique stores. They can be purchased at reasonable prices if you look for brands other than Griswold.
