I just found two old aluminium jaffle irons in a box whilst cleaning out my deceased parents home. One is a double and the other a tripple press. Both are covered with corrosion, expected after 40 years of hibernation, but are basically in good condition for their age.
Question: what is the best way to rejuvinate? sand blasting or wire brush or soaking in something.
Or do we now shy away from alloy. Cheers Steve

Huey, if they were cast iron I'd say a mix of molasses and water.(hope I spelt that right)
Not knowing how it would react with aluminium.  Undecided

May have to google for that answer

The triple could be a Trojan from Tasmania.

Please post a picture.  If it is a Trojan it could be worth good money.

I would prefer to use a soft green scourer pad first with some cooking oil to attempt to clean them up.
Go gently!

For mine, put old bread an butter inside and cook as if you are making a normal jaffle..  Do this a few times..  The inside will often come good when you wash with hot water and a sponge between uses as part of a cleaning regime.. Try to avoid any scourers except for soft nylon.. 

Of course, aluminium jaffle irons are no good for anyone but I would take them into safe keeping!!!    Wink (I'll bet ya rightfully dont believe me)  Wink

A couple of photos would be awesome.  If t is a Trojan Triple Toaster (they are round cups) then it will have a market as a collectable. Shocked
 


A furphy, is Australian slang for a rumour, or an erroneous or improbable story.  You would never get anything but the plain honest dinky-di truth here... I promise!!!!  Yup, hand on my heart, promise, true blue, uh-huh true dinks, dead set!!

teeth whitening toothpaste and a toothbrush also works a treat

None of the above, both methods are to harsh, The triple is quite collectable and worth a bit.
Id go with Rastas's advice.
Molasses can and will etch aluminum if your not very careful.
Personally I hate cleaning Jaffle Irons, and Ive cleaned my fair share, they can be buggers of things to get back into shape, I rather clean 10 rusty camp ovens than one really dirty Jaffle Iron.
