Best Doughnut Maker Reviews UK 2017

I have to admit that I am a bit of a doughnut addict. I have no idea why a ring in the middle of a bun suddenly makes it even more fun. It isn't just the hole though, it is that distinct taste that makes me want to eat at least two of them. And no, one is never enough for me. Leave a bag of doughnuts anywhere near me, and you do so at your peril.

I am now going to cover below the top 5 Doughnut makers that are currently available in the UK. I will try to do that and resist the temptation to actually go and make some. There are plenty of these to be bought. In all honesty many of them are just not worth your money.

You will be glad to know I have excluded those from my list, but I have added them at the bottom so as you know how to avoid them. However let's start with the Top 5 doughnut makers. Below we have lined up the top 5 doughnut makers. We have placed these in order of best value along with the highest rated by buyers.

Any ratings shown are an average, and marked out of a maximum of 5 stars. We have also used average retail UK prices. Both ratings and prices change constantly, so please always check before deciding to make any purchase

  • At 3.5 out of 5 stars this model does not get as good a rating as the others on the list.
  • With an average RRP of around £20, and lower than average reviews, there are in my opinion, better choices.
  • I only included this one as some of the buyers said this was very good, and allowed them to make fun doughnuts with the kids.
  • Although it seems to be good enough quality, it does not come with a recipe book, and many buyers found that disappointing
  • It makes up to 7 doughnuts at a time and claims to have a non-stick surface, which is exactly what you need for any type of doughnut mix.
  • It is also thermostatically controlled, and comes with a cool touch handle.
