What reviewers didn't like

The lack of features is not ideal for beginners.
Quite small, and the pattern doesn't always imprint very well into the cookies.
Manual baking; no light indicator. Makes only one pizzelle at a time.
Only cooks one cookie at a time, may be more difficult to use a stovetop press for some, messier than electric versions.
Plates can get extremely hot. Requires more manual dexterity than an electric pizzelle maker. Not as intuitive to use. The patterns don’t really press into the cookies.
