Open Thread: Ambiano Mini Waffle Maker

Last Updated on March 18, 2024

EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2024. 

Waffles are a classic favorite for breakfast or brunch, and nothing is better than fresh, hot homemade waffles. The waffle-making station is one of my favorite things about hotel breakfast buffets, but you don’t have to stay in a hotel to get good waffles. You can buy an inexpensive waffle maker to use on your own kitchen counter.

Aldi has sold various waffle makers over the years, and I own one. My family likes to use Aunt Maple’s Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix or Aunt Maple’s Protein Pancake and Waffle Mix in our waffle maker, and we top our waffles with Aunt Maple’s Syrup or Specially Selected 100% Pure Maple Syrup.

Sometimes Aldi sells mini waffle makers in holiday designs during the winter. This spring, Aldi decided to also sell more traditional everyday mini waffle makers for people who want pint-sized bites of doughy breakfast goodness.

What We Know:

Ambiano Mini Waffle Maker Assortment

2024 mini waffle maker assortment in blue.


The Ambiano Mini Waffle Maker (Product Code: 831225 in 2024; Product Code 703410 in 2021) cost $7.99 each in March of 2024. That’s $1 less than the $8.99 they each sold for in March of 2021.

This is an Aldi Find (Special Buy), which means it’s only in stores for a short time, and Aldi does not offer online ordering for its specials once they sell out at your local store, so if you want one of these, you’ll need to act quickly.

Here’s more information about the 2024 mini waffle maker:

  • Features non-stick plates for effortless preparation and cleaning
  • Offers fast heating and efficient preparation in minutes
  • Compact design offers space-saving storage
  • Includes ready indicator light
  • Available in blue, rose gold, or mint green
  • Choose different designs that make traditional mini waffles, mini pancakes, or mini Bundt cake shapes

Aldi has not specified what size of mini waffles these make, but previous Aldi mini waffles makers produce waffles that are 4 inches in diameter.

Previous mini waffle makers from Aldi have come with three-year warranties, but Aldi has not yet published information about whether the 2024 mini waffle makers have any kind of warranty.

  1. I bought this mini waffle maker and was super happy to use .It only heated up one time and then it stopped working. I’m going to contact the manufacturer and see if I can get a replacement.

  2. Ambiano Mini Waffle Maker – Do the metal plates get sticky… can they be clean well?

    • I sprayed plates with canola, there was no stick. One time I put in to much mixture that seeped out which was difficult to clean up

  3. I put a little to much mixture In which caused an hard to clean overflow. The instructions do not tell you the amount of z mixture to add to plate
