Not to be outdone, Manning-Bowman introduced a waffle iron in 1937 which could bake two waffles in the space of one. Batter is poured onto the top griddle and then the unit is rotated allowing batter to be poured on the second griddle. The 1937 catalogue notes that "The Twin Reversible overcomes once and for all the inconvenience of trying to satisfy hungry appetites with inadequate servings." By 1941, the unit was given a new name, the "Twin-O-Matic."
