The only thing better than preparing homemade mini waffles from the comfort of your own home is making mini pumpkin-shaped waffles to get in the fall spirit. Dash, the brand behind Amazon’s number one best-selling waffle iron, decided to make our autumn dreams come true by creating a pumpkin mini waffle maker that cranks out pumpkin-shaped waffles in minutes. And right now, the festive, orange-colored gadget is available on Amazon for just $10.

The compact device only weighs a little more than a single pound and hardly takes up any counter space—meaning even those with tiny kitchens can enjoy it. Like all of the mini waffle makers from Dash, this one heats up in minutes after you plug it in, cooks the batter evenly, and has dual non-stick surfaces that make cleanup a breeze. 

The best part? It’s actually capable of making so much more than just waffles. You can also use the adorably festive device to prepare anything from paninis to hash browns—depending on how creative you’re willing to get (and how many pumpkin-shaped meals you want). 

An Amazon best-seller, the small but mighty waffle maker has unsurprisingly racked up thousands of five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers who say it heats up quickly, is fool-proof to use, and is easy to store thanks to its petite size. 

“This silly little thing is perfect. It is so simple that it works almost solely because of that. The non-stick surface really is nonstick. [Which is] kind of critical with a waffle maker so the waffles come off clean without scraping and scrubbing. It makes a waffle in about two minutes—about the time it takes to make my coffee,” one reviewer wrote.

Another described its versatility and effectiveness, despite the size. “At first, I laughed [and] thought it was too small to really do anything. I was so wrong; it's an amazing little waffle maker!! [You] can cook almost anything on it! I have cooked eggs, waffles, and french toast,” they wrote.

Of course, the fall-inspired color and pumpkin-shaped iron were also major selling points for many reviewers. “I love fall so this is perfect!!! I may be a grown adult, but there's nothing more fun than eating pumpkin-shaped pancakes in the morning,” one costumer wrote.

Turn breakfast into a celebration of fall and purchase the pumpkin mini waffle maker from Amazon before it sells out. But hurry, the current discounted price (and fall season) won’t last forever.
