  • For maintenance other than cleaning, please contact StoreBound directly at 1-800-898-6970 Monday – Friday or by email at [email protected].

  • Do not use metal utensils on the Cooking Surface as this will damage the non-stick surface.

  • This appliance can be used by persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience of knowledge, if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.

  • This appliance is not a toy. Do not let children use this appliance. Close supervision is necessary when any kitchen appliance is used by or near children.

PARTS & FEATURES

Parts & Features

Using The Mini Donut Maker

BEFORE USING YOUR EXPRESS MINI DONUT MAKER

  1. Remove all packaging materials.
  2. Check that the Express Mini Donut Maker has no visible damage and that no parts are missing.
  3. Before using the Express Mini Donut Maker for the first time or after prolonged storage, wash and dry the appliance and any accompanying accessories.
  4. If the appliance is preheated before use, donuts will cook faster. To preheat, plug the polarized power cord into a wall socket, at which point the Indicator Light will light up. This indicates that the Maker is heating in preparation to cook.
  5. When the Indicator Light turns off, that means that the Maker is ready to begin cooking.

Using The Mini Donut Maker

  1. Place the appliance on a stable, flat, heat-resistant surface.
    TIP : Lay a heat-resistant lining, such as a cooking tray, beneath the appliance to shield the countertop from any potential drips **(photo A).

**

  1. Plug the appliance into a wall socket. The Indicator Light will illuminate upon being plugged in indicating the Donut Maker is on and heating.
  2. Allow the appliance to fully preheat. The Indicator Light will turn off when fully heated and ready for cooking.
  3. Prepare batter using any one of the included recipes or using a store bought dough. Using store-bought dough can reduce prep time.
    TIP : For a more precise batter poor, place the mixture into a pastry bag or a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner **(photo B).

**

  1. Carefully lift the Cover Lid.
    TIP : The Donut Mold Plate has a nonstick coating that releases food easily, but for best results, grease the cooking surfaces with a light coating of cooking oil or melted butter **(photo C).

**

  1. Add batter to Donut Molds until each is about ¾ full (photo D).

    SymbolNote : Aerosol cooking sprays often contain soy lecithin, an additive that can cause nonstick surfaces to become sticky and hard to clean over time.
    To ensure the longevity of your product, avoid aerosols and instead grease cooking surfaces using a silicone basting brush or a non-aerosol spray bottle.

  2. Use the Cover Lid Handle to lower the lid until the Maker is closed for cooking (photo E).
    Using The Mini Donut Maker

  3. Allow donuts to cook following suggested times in the Recipe Guide (Page 19-33) or to your desired doneness (photo F).

  4. Use a toothpick to remove donuts from the molds as they will be hot on both sides (photo G).

  5. Place donuts on a wire rack to cool. Wait until cooled completely before beginning to decorate. (photo H).
    Using The Mini Donut Maker

    TIP : If frosting donuts, do so on a wire rack over wax paper.

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Be sure not to overfill the Donut Mold Plate as this may cause batter to spill into neighboring molds or onto the heating plate once the batter expands while cooking. It is recommended to add batter until each mold is ¾ full.
  • Oil and butter are not necessary to prevent sticking in the molds, but using them may help the donuts release more easily.
  • Plugging in the Donut Maker to preheat for a few minutes before adding batter will speed up the preparation process by eliminating waiting time.
  • Be sure to follow the cleaning guidelines outlined in “Cleaning & Maintenance” to avoid scratching or damaging the nonstick coating.
  • When filling back Molds with batter, ensure the Cover Lid is fully open and exercise caution to avoid burning fingertips.
  • An amount of time as small as 30 seconds can make a big difference in whether donuts are cooked to satisfaction or overcooked, so be sure to keep a timer handy. It is recommended to bake for 1½ minutes on one side then flip and bake for another 4 minutes on the other side.
  • Use a toothpick to flip the donuts to avoid burning or damaging fingertips on the hot cooking surfaces.
  • For added precision when adding batter to the Molds, scoop batter into 1-gallon freezer size plastic bag and seal partway. Snip off ¹/8 ” from corner of the bag and, with the open corner facing the Donut Maker, squeeze bag until each mold is ¾ full. Fold the bag between rounds of baking to avoid leakage or dripping.
  • The hottest part of the Donut Mold Plate is directly in the center, so fill the center mold with batter last to reduce the risk of overcooking it.
  • Get creative when frosting! Use a spoon to drizzle glaze or toppings for detailed frosting projects.
  • Try making the donuts ahead of time! They’ll stay fresh in a sealed bag for up to two days.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

  • Remove the plug from the wall socket and let the Donut Maker cool completely prior to moving or cleaning.
  • Once cool, thoroughly clean the appliance after every use.
  • The Mini Donut Maker is NOT dishwasher safe and should never be submerged in water; it must be hand washed.
  • Do not clean the cooking surfaces with metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning materials as they may damage the nonstick coating.
  • To clean, wipe the outside of the Donut Maker with a moist, soft cloth.
  • To clean the cooking surfaces, use hot water, dish soap, and a non-abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • If there is any remaining batter residue on the cooking surfaces, use a soft cleaning brush.
  • Ensure that the appliance is unplugged and all parts are clean and dry before storing.

Troubleshooting

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE SOLUTION
The Donut Maker does not turn on. The appliance is not plugged in.

Plug the Donut Maker a grounded wall socket.
The batter is not done after the recommended time.| The batter is clumpy or too dense.| Allow an additional few minutes of cooking.
The plastic bag method of putting batter onto the Donut Mold Plate is not working.| A larger plastic bag will be more efficient.| Use a 1-gallon freezer-size bag.
Batter is cooked unevenly in the Donut Maker.| Various batters need different amounts of exposure to heat.
Batter is being cooked improperly.| Make sure nothing is stuck to the Donut Mold Plates that may be blocking the heat from reaching the batter.
To properly cook the batter in the recipe guide, bake on one side for 1½ minutes. Then, using a toothpick, flip donuts and bake for another 4 minutes.
The Cover Lid won’t close.| Something may be stuck between the handle and the Donut Mold Plates.| Remove item that is stuck between handle and Donut Mold Plate and clean any impacted surface.
The Donut Maker’s nonstick coating does not work.| The nonstick coating may be blocked by dried grease or crust from a previous donut.| Wipe the nonstick Donut
Mold Plates with a soft, moist towel or another non-abrasive cleaning utensil.
