Create the fanciest cookies with the best pizzelle makers

Pizzelles are light and crisp cookies that show off intricate designs. Before small appliances, they were made in a single-cookie iron held over the fire. Thankfully, you can now use a pizzelle maker to streamline the timing and temperature of the cooking process. We’ve gathered a collection of the best pizzelle makers to make your next celebration a hit.

Customizable cooking

Cuisinart WM-PZ10 Pizzelle Press

Staff Pick

This model will tell you when it’s ready to cook, and when pizzelles are ready to eat, which is useful if you’re trying to get the next batch of cookie dough ready. You can also use the 5-setting browning control to adjust the cook time on the non-stick plates for a softer or crispier cookie. A measuring scoop and rolling dowel for waffle cones are also included in the box.

Space saver

Chef’sChoice PizzellePro Toscano

Having a specialized appliance for each task can start to crowd your kitchen. That’s why this model stores upright, which will save countertop and cabinet space. It also uses two features to help you make perfect pizzelles in 30 seconds: a locking latch on the non-stick plates and consistent temperature recovery.

Mighty minis

CucinaPro Mini Italian Pizzelle Maker

Although this pizzelle maker only creates mini cookies, you can do them four at a time. That means it will be easy to build stacks of different flavors for your next event. The heated plates are extra-thick, which helps with heat distribution, and there’s a guard to protect your hands from the steam.

Built to last

Palmer Pizzelle Maker Classic

This pizzelle maker is sure to remind you of cookie days with Nonna. The heavy cast aluminum plates are incredibly durable and have no chemical coating. Once you heat it up, you’ll be able to make 5″ cookies, two at a time. The plastic handle keeps hands away from the hot plates when in use.

Stack ’em

CucinaPro Pizzelle Maker

A locking handle ensures that each pizzelle will be the same thickness, helping these thin and lightweight cookies stay stacked. Non-stick plates mean you won’t break these delicate cookies when removing them from the heat. As a bonus, the 5″ cookies can easily be used for waffle cones.

Pizzelle perfection

Precise cooking is key when your cookies are this thin. That’s why we think the Cuisinart WM-PZ10 Pizzelle Press is the best choice for most people. The cooking indicator lights save you from guessing when the plates are ready for the dough, and when your cookies are finished. Using the 5-setting browning control makes sure that your cookies are the consistency you want them to be, every time.

If you want to produce stacks of cookies for an event, then the CucinaPro Mini Italian Pizzelle Maker is also a great choice. The four spots for cookies is enough room to make multiple flavors at the same time. Whichever you choose, at least you won’t have to make them one by one anymore.
