Does Any Know What This Is?

creativeangelSeptember 19, 2010

I purchased this at a thrift store for $2.00.

It doesn't look like it's ever been used.

There were no instructions.

I thought I could find something on the internet but no luck doing google, Elite and eBay searches. I haven't been able to find anything similar.

I thought maybe a crepe maker?

It has a very shallow area for cooking...maybe 1/8 inch.

Any ideas?

It's a pizelle maker!

Well, Lord Luv a Duck...learn something new every day.


I did a google search and found blogs specifically for this.

It looks like this is going to be my new favorite toy.

I was thinking crepe maker too. So glad Paintergirl came to your rescue and could let us in on it's purpose. I'll bet you will enjoy this little goodie. I have made some waffle cookies for the holidays a few years ago.

Paintergirl, please come back and tell us what you paint. We have a painting forum and would love to have you join us there. I haven't painted much lately but sure love to see what all the others are painting.

Yep...Take it from an 'Italian' here... it's a
Pizelle Maker..
It's a tradition in our family to make them every Christmas/Easter..the only problem...
they're like Potato can't eat just one!!

A tip when you make them...Cool Completely and store them in a box..or large Tin Container, with Wax Paper... not a plastic container...
They will stay crisper that way and not soften...

Phone girl, I love pizelles, they're a tradition in my family, too. Like Slinkey, I am Italian. I have never made them myself. I can paint -- bake, not so much.
The other morning, my son asks me if Dad is awake yet. I said no, why? He said because I want an omelette for breakfast. I say, OK, I'll make you one. He has this very weird look on his face. What's the matter, I ask. He says do you know how to make those?
Anyway, Creativeangel, enjoy your new toy!
