Aldi Waffle Makers
This Aldi Find is a favorite kitchen appliance of many Aldi fans: the Ambiano Belgian Waffle Maker. In 2022 Aldi has three different models of Belgian Waffle Makers (rotating, double rotating, and non-rotating) available at different times.
The most recent model is the Ambiano Double Rotating Waffle Maker. It makes two waffles at once and rotates for even cooking. Like the previous waffle irons from Aldi it has a non-stick coating for easy release.
In February 2022 they featured the Ambiano Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker. In July we get a second chance to pick one up with a non-rotating Ambiano Belgian Waffle Maker.
The rotating waffle maker may have an advantage in even cooking since it can rotate and spread the batter. But the non-rotating version will be take up less space in the cupboard which is a big plus for me.

Is Aldi Double Waffle Maker a Good Deal?
At $35 this looks like a decent price for a rotating double waffle maker. The best deal I was able to find on a similar model from a brand I recognize is the Black and Decker Rotating Waffle Maker.
There are also higher end options from Cuisinart (Click to check price on Amazon) or Hamilton Beach (Click to check price on Amazon). Both of these have a lot for great reviews but come at a higher price point.

Is The Non-Rotating Version A Good Deal?
I researched the Ambiano Rotating Waffle Maker when it came out in February and found that it was a pretty good deal compared to the competition. I was planning on picking one up to test out but I didn’t catch them in-stock at my local store.
Now we have the more compact but non-rotating Ambiano Belgian Waffle Maker. The ability to store it upright so it takes up minimal space in the cabinets is a big selling point for me personally plus it is a lower price.
The best deal I found was on the Oster Belgian Waffle Maker but it was still a few bucks more than Aldi’s Belgian Waffle Maker. I could also be tempted to go with the Hamilton Beach 2-slice Belgian Waffle Maker. It makes two square waffles at once which could be handy. It looks like Aldi has a good deal with the Ambiano Belgian Waffle Maker.

Aldi Rotating Belgian Waffle Maker
This waffle maker is not a new item at Aldi, it looks like it has been available at least once a year for the past few years. It also looks like each year it has been going up in price by about $5 which is not surprising with the increase in prices we are seeing across the board right now.
Looks like last year it was selling for $19.99 and it looks like it was selling for just $14.99 not to long ago. The good thing about this being a repeat Aldi find is that it has generally seen good reviews in the past and likely hasn’t had major issues that would cause Aldi to stop selling it.
From what I could find reddit users seem to be pretty happy with the waffle maker even after a year or more of use.
Is The Rotating Version a Good Deal?
Based on the warranty contact info it looks like this waffle maker is made by Sensio Brands (now called Made By Gather) which makes kitchen goods under their own brands and for store brands like Aldi. One of their brands is Bella which is sold on Amazon and at retailers like Kohls and Walmart (at least online).
The model that looks similar to the Ambiano is this one from Kohls.com since it has the same basic look and the same non-stick coating. That one is selling for about $35 while some on Amazon that are slightly different models are selling in that same price range currently. The version on Amazon has a browning control dial and a different type of non-stick coating.
Aldi’s rotating waffle maker looks like a pretty good deal even with the price increasing. Similar rotating waffle makers are going for $40+ on Amazon.
I was planning on trying out Aldi’s Rotating belgian waffle maker but I wasn’t able to get one at my local store. I may try to grab If I can’t get one or it doesn’t seem to work well I will probably try one of the models from Amazon that have removable plates to make cleanup easier.
Here are the best looking competitors I found on Amazon so you can compare features and prices with the Ambiano.

Review of the Ambiano double rotating Belgian waffle maker
Used it for the first time today. Very happy with the results. Had to leave a little longer to get browned and crisper. Will make a great Christmas gift.
