Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

How To Find The Best Waffle Makers For Your Needs

By Terry L. Jones

There are many great waffle makers on the market today, but there are also many different price ranges. Depending on how much you want to spend and your intentions for use, different models will come out as your top picks. Consider the following tips as guidance on picking one that will suite your needs and deliver perfectly golden waffles for years to come.

Watts of Power: Any kitchen appliance with a heating element will have more capabilities with more power. Lower priced models tend to have lower watts of power, which limits their cooking abilities. For a small household or someone who makes waffles only occasionally, these lower watt models may be perfect.

If you will be using this appliance regularly or want to make larger batches of waffles at one time, then you are likely better off with one that has higher power.

Capacity: How many waffles will you want to make at a time. Lower priced makers tend to make just a couple waffles at a time, but there are larger models that make six or more at once. You may pay a bit more for one that makes a larger batch at a time, but if you are feeding a large family or want to use this in a business setting, then larger is going to be a huge time saver.

Shape: Are you looking for a particular shaped waffle? If so, then make sure to look around and see all of your options before making a final purchase. Most models today come in a standard square shape, but you can find round models and even a traditional heart shaped waffle.

Price Range: The market carries these machines at a very wide price range. You could walk into virtually any store right now and find a very simple waffle maker for $20 or maybe even less. Or, you can look around online and find them well over $100. For most consumers looking to add this appliance to their home, a model in the $30 to $50 range will be suitable.

As with all things, you get what you pay for. The top of the line professional waffle machine will be last longer and do more things than a lower priced model meant for residential use. While these more expensive models are great, they aren't a good pick for everyone.

You probably don't need the absolute best waffle makers on the market in your kitchen. You just need a high quality model that meets all of your individual answers to the guidelines presented here. Find one that works in your home for your needs, and you will have delicious, golden brown waffles for many years to come.
