Mini Donut Factory

Hiring 19 semi-legal immigrants, renting out your garage, and giving them a “Deep Fryers for Dummies” book seemed like a good way to get hot and fresh donuts on demand–that is, until “The Incident.” Put those disturbing memories behind you with the new Automatic Mini Donut Factory ($179.99) from Nostalgia Electrics. Move over defibrillator, this little lifesaving device takes raw batter and churns out tasty treats within 90 seconds, making 30 per batch with a cute little “donut slide” topping it all off. Drizzle them with icing or sprinkle with powdered sugar–just the way Sergei liked them. RIP Sergei.
