If anything can be said of the number and variety of them seen in the vintage collectibles marketplace, it is that waffle irons were among the most popular of cooking implements. With a wide array of designs, shapes, and features, as a segment of cast iron collecting, vintage waffle irons can be an all-consuming hobby by themselves. Waffle irons are known from as early as the 9th century, when similar implements were used to produce thin wafer-like cakes and also communion wafers. The practice of adding leavening agents to the batter, believed to have begun in the 16th or 17th century, spurred the design of irons to make thicker, more deeply-pocketed cakes, culminating in what we today call "Belgian" waffles. Nearly every major U.S. manufacturer of cast iron ware in the late 19th and early 20th centuries produced at least one model of waffle iron offering round irons in multiple sizes, with a few making square and oblong designs.
