Does the Nostalgia Electrics Cake Pop Bakery donut hole maker work?

We found an 8-year-old girl who seems to have a small obsession with doughnuts.

Sachi from Phoenix says she loves all kinds of doughnuts so she was excited to get the Nostalgia Electrics Cake Pop Bakery donut hole maker as a gift.

So with a little help from mom, we put Sachi’s baking skills to the test.

There are recipes in the manual, or you can make your own. You can even use pre-packaged mixes.

Sachi chose a Pilslbury donut kit .

Sachi and her mom mixed the ingredients together while the donut maker preheated for three minutes.

Once the mix is ready, it's as simple as filling the seven pastry wells and waiting.

About four minutes later, the donut holes are ready.

Sachi was impressed.

In fact she didn’t want to wait for the donuts to cool off and wasn't too keen on sharing with her sister.

Nostalgia Electrics Cake Pop Bakery donut hole maker was definitely easy to use, especially with the donut kit.

So we had to try it with a regular cake mix.

We followed the same instructions and the donut hole maker performed well.

Both Sachi and mom gave it a thumbs up for living up to its claim.

But is it worth the cash?

Sachi’s mom says she didn’t need the Nostalgia Electrics Cake Pop Bakery donut mole maker to make donuts since she was using a donut kit. But she says she is glad she got it because it was fun for Sachi.

I have to agree... If you're going to buy a donut mix, it's just as easy to roll the dough and put it in the oven.

Plus you can make more at a time that way.

But if you're looking for more flavor options or you plan to make your own mix, the donut maker is a good treat, especially for the kids.

We bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99.
