Your mini-donut maker and its half-a-dozen donuts a minute might make for a convenient way to fix yourself a quick snack. If you can down two dozen of them at a time, though, pouring the batter onto those six holes during every batch is still too much work. It may be time to trade it in for this Automatic Mini Donut Factory.
Made by Nostalgia Electrics, the kitchen appliance steps up the production, pumping out up to 30 of the holed treats. Even better, you just dump the batter onto the contraption and let the machine do all the work. All you have to do is pick up the bin after the donuts are mixed, shaped and fried to perfection, then frost it (or just eat it if you’re really not in the mood to do any work).
While designed to go over countertops (dimensions are 22.8 x 6.9 x 14 inches), the Automatic Mini Donut Factory will probably make for an even better rig sitting right on your desk at work. Imagine 30 donuts plopping out every 90 seconds, ready to fill you with sugar and dough so you can eat the stress of your thankless job away. Or something like that.
The machine features a see-thru safety window that locks all cooking components in, so even kids and clumsy dorks can use it. Yes, you can watch as the things are cooked, too, so it can make for a nice distraction if you’re tired of staring at the same Excel spreadsheet you’ve been pretending to work on for hours.
