You've found a vintage waffle iron, round chrome, from Fostoria, model 251. 575 watts. This chrome non-Teflon vintage waffle iron with 7 3/8" cast aluminum plates has scratches and stains from normal use, and some rust spots and pitting to the chrome. The cloth cord has extensive wear (wear to the end that attaches to the prongs, and some fraying on the cloth cord cover); though it's functional, I don't recommend using it, and am selling this waffle iron as a collectible or decor piece. The bakelite or plastic handles have minor nicks around the edges, but no significant damage.

The lid and handles have a lovely Art Deco design, and the cover has a temperature dial to indicated when the waffle iron is fully heated. Marked "Fostoria, mfd by McGraw Elec. Co. Bersted Mfg. Div, Boonville, MO, Model No. 251, watts 575, volts 115." It is from around the 1940s. It measures 8 7/8" total diameter.

Frequently asked questions about LaurasLastDitch

Shipping options in order of speed from fastest to slowest:

Priority Express
Priority Mail
First Class Mail (in many cases, it's just as fast as Priority Mail)
Parcel Select / Media Mail / FedEx Ground

Sometimes I substitute shipping methods for something of equal speed or faster.

Tracking is included, except for flats (items mailed in an envelope, such as instruction manuals and recipe booklets).

I reclaim packing materials in order to keep shipping costs low and save natural resources. Printed receipts included upon request.
Refund is for purchase price less s/h, unless my error necessitates the return. I accept returns for any reason, even if you've simply changed your mind (the only exception is props buyers, though, as it's easy to abuse the privilege).
Lost items: full refund or replacement (if available) if tracking info says item didn't arrive within a reasonable amount of time, which varies by destination.

Damaged items: full or partial refund (I may request return or proof of damage). I double-box glassware and especially fragile items. I reserve the right to provide a replacement rather than a refund.
Should you require gift wrapping, a gift note, or have another special request, such as a longer return period, please ask.
