Surprise! It actually works!!! I didn't listen to the filling instructions and put too much in. But other than that it was nice to make doughnuts (never have before) and best of all, make them without frying. I wish though that they sold these pans in a bigger size though because the doughnuts were a bit smaller than I would prefer. But who knows, maybe you can't bake larger doughnuts and have them turn out well LOL! Overall, a great buy!
