I'm looking for a recommendation for a waffle iron with interchangeable plates for butter galettes.

I have one but it's over 30 years old, falling apart and runs off 220V to boot. Are there any replacements? I cannot find any, anywhere.

Why does it need interchangeable plates? – rumtscho Jun 7 '12 at 22:34
So I can make waffles most of the time and Galettes around new years :-) – Matt Jun 7 '12 at 23:24
Ah, you mean that they need a different shape? I had thought that you want to change the same shape during cooking, and wondered what the purpose would be. It is clear now. – rumtscho Jun 7 '12 at 23:48

I think it's hard to find this online. You better check your kitchen appliance store.

I did find this that is compatible with these plates, but I don't think they'll ship to where you live. Plus they are quite expensive and I have no idea about their quality.

You should be able to use the waffle iron as is and just not close it, I would think. Though I am also not able to find a replacement, except through alibaba.

Edit based on apparent flag and mod comment:

All a special galette plate will provide is the shape. You can still make the batter, spoon a couple of tablespoons onto a hot waffle iron and yield exactly the same thing, albeit in a different shape.

I'm not sure how this relates to the question, and it picked a flag. Please elaborate what you mean, or I will delete it as "not an answer" – rumtscho Jun 8 '12 at 13:48

If you are trying to find a new iron they are available. Try Verkinderen belgian cookie iron, they are available, to the best of my knowledge, at DeRonne Hardware store. Check their website under specialty items.

Does this iron include changeable plates for making butter galettes? – Chris Steinbach Dec 2 '12 at 3:55
