DS has a pricey Krups waffle iron that he got free (and it was brand new!) at the end of a garage sale. One of the plastic feet has broken off. What do you think is the best product to glue it back on? Don't know how hot it gets--probably not very, but warm. Thanks.

Maybe it's not so "all" purpose, after all!

I got an electric griddle in the mail when I got married 37 years ago. It had a broken foot and Dh glued the foot together with super glue and we hoped it would last a few years. 30 years later it was still holding when I decided the teflon was too far gone for me and donated it to the thrift store.

My waffle iron leg broke off and disappeared. it's likely in the back of the cabinet - but who wants to go digging?! god only knows what other treasures i might find! (i am well aware of why my house is halfway to "Hoarders")

I balance a plate under it. or a banana peel. or anything that's .678473657 inches high that happens to be laying around on the counter.

I am soooo not worthy to partake of this board!

But we'd kick you off if you went out and bought a new waffle iron, especially if you paid full retail!

The housecleaner happened to have Super Glue in her bag, so that's what I used, and it worked fine--if it doesn't break off again. I also bought a small bottle of Gorilla Glue to have on hand. I never seem to have anything when something needs gluing. And I remember that I do have something else to glue, I just can't remember what it is! LOL

Apoxy? J.B. Weld is the brand DH uses for hard plastic stuff like the foot.

Or seeing if you can get a new foot through the company? You might get it free or it might cost you more than the waffle maker.


I once got a free wheel from Graco for a used stroller since it was under 1 year old. Can't hurt to try.
