You cannot find a "regular" waffle maker anymore.
All of the currently manufactured waffle makers I can find make "Belgium waffles" with HUGE squares and a griddle for two waffles side by side.
I want a regular 4 waffle griddle with the smaller squares. The kind that makes the waffles come out in one big sheet of four.

My mom has one from the late 60s. It has a cloth wrapped cord and no ground on the plug. I will risk the recrimination for stealing and the potential for kitchen fires if I can just have waffles that aren't gaping at me with their 8x8 square cavernous waffles.

We had a similar problem getting a toasted sandwich maker like our childhood one - it made them sandwich into a big puffy shell-patterned thing, with crispy edges that you bit off and burned your mouth repeatedly on the insides.

Now all we can seem to find are the things that basically crush your sandwich into a millimetre-thick splat of unpleasantness. It's so cruel.

The only krups ones I've ever found make the "big waffle" types instead of the small ones... but that first one looks a lot like exactly what I'm looking for.
I'll never get it to be as seasoned as the plates in mom's but... man I can try

When I want kitchen stuff that they don't make anymore, I go to ebay.

Here, you can make long rectangular waffles: http://cgi.ebay.com/General-Electric-Waffle-Iron-Cat-No-169G40_W0QQitemZ6200105703QQcategoryZ11655QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Of course, if you want to use your mom's, you could always just replace the cord so as not to have to become too friendly with the local firefolk.
