UNIQUE Rebuilt Antique Waffle Iron from 1920s 1st by Universal


Completely restored. This is one of Landers, Frary and Clark's very first waffle irons built in the early 20's. Why they used two inputs is beyond me but I guess they didn't have the spring conduit for the upper plate. Its Nickel plated, not chromed so it is not all shiny and cool but its cool in its own right from the design. I was surprised how heavy duty the heaters are inside. They will last forever. I had to make a special cord set for this so I installed a switch for on/off control. It makes smaller waffles than most only 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Nice size for toaster waffles. Two at a time. Its cleaned, re-wired and tested so its ready to make waffles for you for 20 plus years. Take it to the cabin, trailer or any getaway spot making waffles for dinner!
Dimensions are 10" x 7" by 5 1/2" tall. Plates stay on and are not removable by the user. Just keep them seasoned.
110 VAC, 5.5 amperes ( about 600 watts). 2 new 6 foot cords with switch supplied. It comes with full instructions for seasoning, cleaning and using.

All items come with cords.
All cords are either new or old style that have been tested and refurbished.

What are materials

Waffle grids are cast aluminum.
Toasters are metal
Coffee pots vary and I always tell you the materials.

How will I keep it working and will it work?

Everything I sell is refurbished and in like new working order.
If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.

Is it safe?

It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.

What does Restored and Rebuilt Mean?

It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
