jaffle irons

Hi all, just wondering if anyone knows where I can get a round jaffle iron. Something happened to the one I have used over the last 35 years and I had to turf it out. My partner went out and bought a new square one but it just doesnt cook right. Everything sticks, the bread doesnt brown, etc etc. The old round one was brilliant but I haven't seen this design anywhere.
cheers, doc.

Gooday Oz Doc,
with the square ones, when new, and before use, it needed to be heated up until just too hot to touch comfotablly, then lightly oiled all over using a good quality olive oil or similar. Then allowed to cool and wiped clean. same as if you buy a new cast camp oven.

oz doc - have a look at www.campingwithhillbilly.com - they have round ones and you can buy off their site.

No connection with the business.

Something that really irritates me is people feeling they have to justify when passing information to help others that they have 'no connection' with businesses. If those who feel all information passed to help others is trying to drum up business it's about time they looked at themselves and their own inadequacies and obviously other small bits. Give others the benefit of being helpful and making life easier on others.

Longtooth (SA) - you have no idea who you have addressed your comments - if they are male for female.

Good reply, although I share Longtooth's irritation with the need to post such disclaimers.

Don' t take any notice of comments like
"Something that really irritates me is people feeling they have to justify when passing information to help others that they have 'no connection' with businesses..."

As far as I am concerned saying no connection means you aren't being biased and that can only be good.

If they don't like the message they don't have to read it.

Cheers Kev

Available on Ebay, but expensive. Look around second hand shops, markets, garage sales etc. I collect them and that is where I find them.

The old round ones were made of a cast alloy rather than cast iron as is used nowadays, and as such transmitted the heat very quickly. If you can track any of them down grab them as they are a scarce as.
As other have said you need to season new ones - but as you say they still don't cook the same.

OK Guys, thanks for the comments- I'll keep an eye out at the local garage sales and op shops for one. I just knew the new fangled ones were not the same. doc.

Actually the current Furphys brand jaffle irons are very good, made in china, but they have longer handles so are well suited to campfire cooking. Available direct from Furphy in Shepparton.

Hi Tony- picture 3 is eighty mile caravan park. I don't think it looks like this any more - not after the cyclone went through.doc.
