This Top-Rated Gadget Makes Mini Apple Cider Doughnuts in Less Than 5 Minutes
Aside from fall ushering in pumpkin everything, there's another treat that boldly announces that autumn has definitely arrived: apple cider doughnuts. These delicious bites of apple-tinged cinnamon-sugar dough really only make an appearance during leaf-crunching season, but if you'd like to have them year-round, or simply have the chance to make them yourself, Amazon shoppers have found a way.
Dash's mini doughnut maker makes it possible to experience the warm, bready goodness of an apple cider doughnut at home whenever a craving strikes. Shoppers love how easy it is to fire up and crank out petite pastries—so easy, in fact, you don't even need to dirty up a mixing bowl.
To buy: Dash Mini Doughnut Maker, $25 at amazon.com.
Doughnuts in minutes without a sink full of dishes may sound too good to be true, but it's not. All it takes is pouring batter into a piping bag, filling each of the seven rounds, and flipping them with tongs or a toothpick.
It also takes hot oil splatters out of the equation, making it safer to have around kids and pets. "It's so cute and very easy to use," explained a reviewer. "Such a fun activity to do with your kids—my daughter had a blast. The best part is cleaning up is a breeze and the small size makes storage convenient."
Oil burns and piles of dishes are a doughnut-making problem of the past. With this little machine, you can churn out apple cider, glazed, chocolate, and birthday cake doughnuts in no time.
