Waffle evolution has had a long and twisty course. First, there was the waffle iron; somebody poured batter in it and all was well. Eventually somebody took a freshly cooked waffle and rolled it up, inventing the ice cream cone. After that, not much happened until one enterprising fellow ruined his wife's waffle maker and changed athletic footwear forever. Now, there is a new course set for the home kitchen with upside-down, inside-out waffles.

The CucinaPro Bubble Waffler (around $45) offers a fun take on traditional breakfast waffles. Modeled after the street food, eggettes, or even their cousin, ebleskivers, the devices uses small wells pebbled across the grilling surface to create a distinctive final result. The individual bubbles stick together creating a delicious waffle sheet that can be served -- and eaten -- in a variety of ways.

Convenient foods will always be welcomed in the kitchen, especially when versatile. Here, the familiar clamshell design of the waffle maker allows for a quick and easy introduction into the home kitchen. The bubble waffles can be served with a variety of toppings or ingredients can be mixed directly into the batter. Wherever the culinary exploration goes, the countertop appliance makes it easy: just pour in some batter, wait a few moments, and then taste history.
