I’ll take ‘Unnecessary Kitchen Gadgets’ for $500, Alex.

I own a donut maker. When I tell people this, my follow up is that it makes cake donuts, not fried ones. Picture a waffle iron, only instead of the waffle shape, there’s a lot of little donut shapes.

Despite this being exactly the type of ridiculous thing I’d buy for myself, I actually got it in a holiday white elephant exchange at my office. This means around the holidays, it was on sale for about $20.

It comes with a booklet of donut recipes. I’ve made the plain ones with both vanilla and chocolate icing, and around Halloween, when I was stuck home from Hurricane Sandy, I made three batches of Apple Cinnamon donuts.

My most recent donut foray was Olive Oil with Dark Chocolate Glaze and Sea Salt.

The donut maker is easy to use, if kind of messy. And the novelty of homemade donuts never fails to wow a crowd.
