The Full Story:
June 29th is National Waffle Iron Day! Today is a celebration for all the breakfast lovers. Homemade waffles are one of the cornerstones of a delicious morning meal, all thanks to waffle makers.
Waffle irons originated in Belgium during the 14th century. The early contraptions consisted of two metal plates hinged together. The plates were then attached to a long pole, which allowed the cook to hold the iron over an open fire. Cornelius Swarthout patented the first American waffle iron in 1869. This device was designed for cooking waggles over the burner of a wood or gas stove. Fifty years later, General Electric began producing the first electric waffle irons.
