Well, that wasn't in the product description. On December 26, Brian McCarthy took to Twitter to express his concerns after Amazon sent his daughter a waffle maker...with food still in it. As someone who is currently looking for a brand new coffee maker, I'd be equally mad if my shipment came with dirty filters and old coffee grounds.
McCarthy's tweet says that his mom sent the Amazon order to his daughter. Since this tweet went out the day after Christmas, we can't help but assume this was a holiday gift. Poor Grandma! I hope she knows this isn't her fault for buying a used item. It's a cute mini waffle maker, and I can see why she thought it was a great gift.
Once again, we extend our apologies and if there is anything we can do to assist in this matter, please do not hesitate to reach out.

I checked the manufacturer, and it's from Select Brands. This is the same manufacturer that reached out to Brian McCarthy on Twitter apologizing for the mistake. Brian replied to the apology saying, "I do not believe you have any responsibility in this matter. This is clearly an issue with how Amazon markets used products on their website as coming from."
Hello, Jeff Bezos? We're a bit confused with your definition of used. Well, if you like the waffle maker and want to give it a shot at a new one, here you go. You won't get huge Belgian-style waffles from this cooker. Instead, you'll get four crispy waffle sticks. For those who love dousing their breakfast in syrup (me), you'll love this new non-stick waffle stick maker.
For a quick little waffle, consider the Dash. This isn't your classic waffle iron! You can also make paninis and biscuit pizzas with this gadget.
Flip waffle makers remind me of college dining halls! It was the perfect meal for when you weren't feeling the menu of the day.
