Weekend mornings staring at the syrup bottle have no need to be confusing. While one side of the equation may make perfect sense -- that being to serve something with syrup -- the other side can be as opaque as batter. For it may be that delicious syrup makes delicious breakfast even better, the fact remains a platform has to be chosen to pour it on to. The great eternal syrup question is of course: pancakes or waffles?

Unlike other breakfast conundrums, this one has no incorrect answers; both waffles and pancakes are delicious in their own ways. Yet just because there are no wrong answers doesn't necessarily mean the choices are correct. The Cuisinart WAF-300 Breakfast Central Waffle & Pancake Maker ($99.95) looks to resolve this seeming contradiction by providing the means to make both.

Whether flat and round or pocketed and square, golden brown syrup conveyances are never far away. Featuring a clam-shell design and dishwasher-safe interchangeable plates, the countertop appliance offers the speed and convenience that are so valued in the morning. However, the six-setting temperature control, indicator lights, and audible alert signal can't solve the entire syrup equation -- there is still the matter of deciding upon bacon or sausage for dipping purposes.
