    Default Jaffel Irons: Stop Sticking

    Right, had I tried a Jaffel iron pre-1994, I am convinced that my citizenship would have been revoked.

    I bought a Jaffel iron, circa 2020, the 3 Jaffel type. Used it once and swore never again. I didnt burn the Jaffels, but the bread stuck to the iron itself and created a hang of a mess. I buttered the outside of the bread as one might for a toasted. So what is the best method for preventing Jaffels from sticking. I want to give it a go again today.

    With mine I just use Spray&Cook, bit of butter on outside of sarmie, turn frequently.
    Sometimes the edges burn, where bits of the sarmie sticks out. if gas flame is to high, then they stick, just use a knife to pry the bread loose.

    I would also like to know what cause the sticking. No sticking with the cast iron one that we have. We tried a friend’s aluminium one over the holiday and had endless sticking problems. We eventually stopped using the aluminium one.
    The breads seem to burn black immediately. Bread was buttered on the outside. Also oiled the pan with olive oil. Played with the heat and still no success.

    Get it hot first, then a bit of spray and cook, then place sarmies inside and toast.

    Aluminium ones get hot much faster than cast ones. So you to hold back on the heat with Aluminium. Spray and cook with butter outside. Preferably not light margarine.

    The more you use the iron the better it gets. Wash with soap and water only. No scouring.

    Sounds like it gets seasoned over time the same as a good potjie (well the cast iron ones any way).

    Very true. I also spray some Spray&Cook every third Jaffle or so.

    Hate the Aluminium ones though. Can't come right with them.

    I am sure I do not have to school anybody here, in the making of Braaibroodjies.

    Well I use toeknyp roosters when braaing. And you can identify a rookie braaier by the way his braaibroodjies sticks to the grid.

    You never close a toeknyp rooster on braaibroodjies and lock the handles with the bracket. That is a sure way to make it stick to the grid.

    You only close it lightly and keep it lightly closed with your hands only. You turn the braaibroodjies regularly to keep it from
    burning and always open the top grid, every time after turning, to keep the braaibroodjie from sticking to the grid. And this work well for me. And I very seldom put butter on the outside of the braaibroodjies.

    Now I suspect it is the same with Jaffels.

    Obviousely, you have to clamp it firmly the first time in order to seal the Jaffel, but thereafter, it might help to open it on a regular bases to help prevent sticking. And sommer inspecting how far the are from ready.

    I have notice that my wise old mother as well as my wife, opens the Jaffel pan regularly to inspect the condition of the Jaffel in order not to burn them. And I am suspecting that this helps a lot for preventing them from sticking.

    I suspect that it is the high moisture content in loafs of bread these days that are the cause for this stickiness to the Jaffel pan or braai grid. Even more so when you clamp them too tight.

    But then, I might have it tatally wrong.

    Just like with pancakes, your first one is likely to be the most problematical, so don't become disheartened too quickly.

    Preheat the iron over the flame. Spray and cook vigorously just before putting the jaffles in.
    You aren't blow torching them, you want to heat the contents through, so the flame doesn't shouldn't be too high.
    Make sure they are buttered all the way to the edges on the outside. This is a mistake a lot of people make.
    Cut off the excess as soon as you have squeezed the iron shut.
    Turn regularly so both the iron heats evenly on both sides.
    Do not open the jaffle iron to peek constantly. This is one of the ways you improve sticking. When you think the jaffle is ready, open the lid. The jaffle should release easily. If it doesn't, it probable needs a little longer. (Note there is a difference between the jaffle not releasing and a bit of escaped stuffing caramelizing and not wanting to release.)
    If some stuffing escaped it can leak into the iron or run along the seal and create a struggle to release.
    Flip the iron over on the plate and plop out the jaffle.
    If you have sticking problems, please don't use your knife or a fork to stab or scrape it out. You will create a worse problem going forward.
    If you have crumbs or escaped bits, clean the iron properly until it is clean again. Heat, repeat whole cycle. If easy released previous round, heat slightly, spray and cook vigorously repeat.

    Don't overstuff, so the jaffle can seal properly.
    I'm not a fan of spray and cook, and rarely use it. But this is one place where I don't think one can really escape it unless you have a really good iron.
