The trendiest kitchen appliance right now has to be the Dash baby waffle maker. The cheap, space-friendly Amazon best-seller with over 55,000 reviews has been all the talk on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok, with folks making everything from toasted tortilla wraps to carbless Keto pizza to brookies at home. (If you don't know, a "brookie" when you layer brownie batter and cookie dough on the waffle griddle to create a hybrid sweet treat. We know. Yum.)
Turns out, the popular brand has even more shopper-loved appliances on Amazon—the most popular of which is the Dash Mini Donut Maker that turns out warm doughy bites in just a couple minutes. Just like the waffle maker, it's made with a super reliable nonstick surface that makes cleanup quick and easy, and home cooks are getting just as creative with the ring-shaped molds. Any sort of batter is fair game, including Bisquick pancake mix, store-bought brownie batter, cake batter, and even denser mixes used to make banana bread and beignets.
The small donut maker comes complete with a recipe book with over 50 ideas for your donut treats, which reviewers note is super helpful when throwing together new donut flavors from what's right inside your fridge. With options like banana cinnamon donuts with Nutella glaze and classic chocolate frosted, we can see the appeal. (It even has gluten-free and paleo options.) But may we suggest starting with our recipe for Apple Butter Doughnuts with Salted-Caramel Glaze? You won't regret it.
The Dash mini donut maker is great for those who are ready to go beyond bacon and eggs, as well as those who enjoy making fun treats with kiddos at home (because everyone gets to decorate their own). It's as easy as snagging a couple boxes of batter from the grocery store and heating up your new trusty Dash.
