This set included Kit's porcelain-top waffle iron,a milk-glass platter, two waffles with a little dollop whipped cream to go on top,two artificial evergreen swags and some recipe cards.
What can I say? Cute, cute , cute!! I love this set. There is nothing I do not like about this set.
The waffle iron is so nice and heavy. It is metal and porcelain with little wooden handles.It even has an electrical cord with an itty bitty plug on the end! I love the picture on top too.It just looks so real.Very nice! I can see lots of play value in this piece too.
The milk glass plate is very pretty, but it does seem quite delicate. It is also completely flat, not shaped like most real plates.
The little waffles fit right inside the waffle iron, too cute!
The recipe cards have some neat little recipes for waffles on them, including the "Kittridge Family Waffles".
The evergreen swags are a nice touch.
This is really a terrific, very well made little set. A+

I got mine today and it is so well made! Everything is really nice. The only complait I have is that it is so much smaller than I thought it would be. Also, it wasn't packaged very well. The ceramic plate slipped out of the bubble wrap and the bubble wrap was popped but everything is OK. Grade: A+

Since no one has commented on this one in awhile, I figured I would! I bought this set for Christmas (off eBay---yeah, I know, not a real bargain) , and I was amazed at the quality! The iron is heavy, and the details are incredible. I could almost smell the waffles (Okay, Sarah, you're going too far there!)... My family was amazed, and I don't know what impressed them more--the fact that the rubbery waffles fit into the iron, or the fabric electrical cord---just like the real old ones were fabric-covered. Very cool and a must-have accessory, even at eBay prices!
I got one for a great price from a board member and I'm thrilled beyond words with it. This, Kit's typewriter, and camera are now my favorite accesories of all the dolls.
The waffles/whipped cream and the milk glass plate are available as replacement parts. The waffles are rubbery but I really like how that keeps them on the plate instead of sliding right off - especially since the plate is flat. I was glad the whipped cream was included with the waffles, too. A+

I bought ours back when it was announced that it was going to be retired. I tracked it down from a PS in Chicago and I am very glad that I did. It's very well made and detailed. Worth every penny, even if you have to get it from ebay.
This set is one of my favorites from Kit's collection. Christmas is my favorite holiday, but I don't think that influenced my opinion *too* much. The waffle iron itself is delightful - the porcelain and metal is authentic and heavy, and the fabric electrical cord is one of those details that just completes the piece. One complaint I have is that one of the screws has come loose in my iron, so it's now hinged only on one side - I have no idea what happened to the other screw.
The depression-era milk-glass-looking plate is beautiful, especially with the ribbon trim. And the waffles are rubbery, but I like that they actually go into the iron and don't slide off the plate, as rexphiles mentioned. The cinnamon-sprinkled whipped cream is a nice touch, and the recipe cards are real recipes that will work!
The evergreen sprigs are a nice touch, but not essential by any means. You can probably make a close approximation with similar Christmas decorations. If you see a set on ebay that's complete but without the evergreen sprigs, I wouldn't hesitate to get the set!
Well worth the money - I spent about $10 more than retail value on ebay right after it was retired, when I didn't know about asking if there were any left at AGPs or at the outlets. Though I wish I had known about the other avenues, it was worth it to me!
Love this set!! The iron is heavy, as Breeze said, but it's very pretty. The waffles acutally fit in the iron. The cream looks so delicious and the other stuff it comes with adds to how much fun it is to use.

I am late to the game, so I had to purchase this item off of ebay. I paid a pretty penny for it, but am still super pleased. It is such a cute set! I love it so much I had to post my own pictures and review. The waffle iron itself is beautiful - heavy, with a pretty design, and the plug is too cute! The waffles fit inside the iron. The plate is a little odd since it is flat and not curved like a traditional plate. But it looks nice w/ a waffle on it. Love the cute little recipe cards and the dollop of whip cream is cute too! I highly recommend this set, even at an inflated price. I am currently searching for Kit's Christmas Baking set to go with it! Here are some pics:
