Nostalgia pretzel maker
Whenever I think back on working in New York City, I often think of the great-tasting food including the hot New York pretzels that I occasionally treated myself to from a vendor at Penn Station. Ever since then pretzels just have not tasted the same – until now! With the pretzel maker from Nostalgia Electrics I have discovered that I can make the great-tasting soft pretzels right in my own kitchen, and the homemade pretzels are a hit with everyone in my family.

I initially thought that making homemade pretzels would be complicated, and I will admit that I was a bit overwhelmed, when I first took a look at the Traditional Soft Pretzels recipe in the Nostalgia booklet. However, after having made my first round of pretzels, I started feeling more comfortable with the pretzel making process. When I put in the last batch of homemade pretzels in the pretzel maker, I felt like a pro.

The pretzel maker from Nostalgia Electrics definitely helps ease the process of making homemade pretzels, and I am very impressed with the capabilities of this simple but high-quality pretzel maker. The pretzel dough cutters which are included with the pretzel maker are simple, easy to use, and my kids love using these pretzel cutters.
Another feature that I love about the Nostalgia Electrics pretzel maker, is the fact that it comes with two sets of interchangeable pretzel cooking plates, a set of cooking plates for two large pretzels, and a set of cooking plates for six small pretzels.Not only is it great to be able to make two sizes of pretzels, but the fact that the cooking plates easily can be removed, is a big help when cleaning the pretzel maker. Cleaning the pretzel cooking plates is easy to do with a soft cloth, and I was relieved to see how quickly it was to clean the pretzel maker.The pretzel maker handbook includes seven pretzel recipes and six dip recipes, and while I have only tried one of the recipes I am thrilled. I made a big batch of pretzels, both big and large and they all disappeared very quickly.

How To Make Homemade Pretzels:
  1. Make the dough according to the recipe, and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Roll out the dough, press down the pretzel shaping tool.
  3. Push out the pretzel on a spatula
  4. Lower the pretzel into a water and baking soda mix
  5. Add the pretzel to the pretzel maker
  6. Wait 3 – 7 minutes
  7. Brush with butter, and then sprinkle water and drizzle a bit of sea salt over the pretzels.
