Not made it before but my kids liked it so much when we are in Hong Kong each summer so in August, I bought one of these from Hong Kong. Really heavy but good job Cathay Pacific increased the baggage allowance from 20Kg to 30Kg!
You can also buy the traditional ones that you heat over a gas fire . Check on Ebay for the best prices.

If you boil an unopened can you get runny toffee sauce (be careful not to let pan boil dry or the can explode!) Carnation have recipes on their site and normally one on the tin also. You can make fudge, brownies, key lime pie etc literally hundreds of recipes.

Thanks a lot, good tips, want one too, where can you get one like this in HK?

I always wonder how people bring kitchen ware on flight, once I read a blogger brought a big miele steamer (none stock in Europe and she was very happy with the steamer) back or the most modern Japnese 240V multi function rice cooker (worth it I think) all sort ??!! How could they get it on air flight with such volume and weight ???

top 5 hits on google all say evaporated for Gai Dan Jai but i dunno! (the ball waffles)
doesn't seem to take much either in some recipes and iirc you can find packs of small pouch things of it in places like B&M for keeping it fresh and using what you need


if you use a tin of this are you not going to be making huge amounts of the waffles?

if you want to use condensed milk properly then you make tablet (wow the internet pics for it are so bad - this was the best i could see) or some sort of traybake

... or just get a spoon!

sorry I never make one but I used to eat plain Gai Dan Jai without condensed milk. For waffle style maybe 8 waffle for a tin, they are sauce on so one could add whatever they want, most important to get the balance right, as I used to eat such with other eg spread peanut, spread of sugar etc

and by the way, those is a bit different with the western style made waffle here, I don't cook but I could only tell about that.

.....right.... but..... what i am trying to say is this isn't evaporated milk
if gai dan jai needs evaporated milk then it doesn't need this

if however you want to make (or use as) a sauce then thats fair enough but thats not how it reads

They sell the machine on ebay, imported from China for around £120ish.

Yeah, I also bought a top of the range Made in Japan Zojirushi rice cooker back from HK! We had 4 x 30kg allowance so more than enough. Checked price.com.hk and the cheapest I could find was HK$2228

Went to the top floor of APM mall in Kwun Tong and Broadway had it for only HK$1798! (£172) . Sold in the Uk for about £280.

oh and to clarify... you are heating the unopened can in a large pan full of simmering water... if you try and boil the contents then BOOM
(runny will need to be timed - never tried that)
also.. they sell it 'preboiled' so no fiddling about (if want set stuff)

I've not made it yet. I know one of the main ingredients is Evaporated milk (probably because fresh milk is expensive in HK) so I will buy that first.

My Egg waffle machine is still in my luggage!

Looking at various sites, it appears to be evaporated milk. I've never used it before but I thought they were the same but obviously not.

I do think normal milk is OK as when we were young and people (or street seller) didn't have luxury to shop with evaporated milk, however here in UK we have different choice of milk eg full fat, , half fat etc not sure which one is the best.

I think the most important is the balance with the baking powder and the flour to make up the special style inside the ball.

I like her cooking style, maybe you would like to check her blog too (she says evaporated milk as well) :

My daughter love them and they are so expensive in Chinatown (£1.20 each) but so easy to make.

Yummy, Home made Dan Tat the best (you are home goddness). I found the UK shops generally not really good in taste and also expensive (but hey I don't cook so take it as a occasional treat better than nothing)

I just read a blog about gai dan jai just now (quit long or just jump to here for the milk receipt below but not mention which kind of milk)

thanks so much , just check that listing. I think it is too expensive for me (especially near Xmas time) as the with custom fee add on and the post office surcharge really make it a very expensive buy . I do know amazon.com would calculated all so I know exactly how much it it. I would keep looking and I hope I could get one sooner. Thanks a lot!

she used evaporated milk here.

Btw, if you do end up in Hong Kong, go to Shanghai Street near Yau Ma Tei MTR station. Lots of shops selling kitchenware. Bought my HK waffle maker (both traditional and electric), Bibimbap stone bowls, Dan Tat metal cases and wooden chopping boards from there.
