Tips for Keeping Waffles Warm:

  1. Set Oven to "warm" setting To keep waffles warm while you're whipping up more for your family, preheat your oven to the "warm" setting or lowest setting available.
  2. Place waffles right on the oven rack Place the waffles right on the rack when you take them out of your waffle iron. The waffles will stay crispy and warm until you're ready to enjoy!
