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?

  • So I can make waffles most of the time and Galettes around new years :-)

  • 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.

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"

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.
