Vintage Alum. Fairgrove Automatic DONUT MAKER, Orig Box! - eBay (item 310043600922 end time Apr-28-08 18:07:48 PDT)
This 1970's donut maker is an aluminum batter dispenser still in the plastic sleeve and original box with vintage graphics. The only thing missing is the recipe booklet. The dispenser itself is marked, "Taiwan."
The box is marked, "Fairgrove Automatic Donut Maker...also for pancakes. Made of heavy gauge, bright anodized pure aluminum." One end says, "Automatic Donut Maker and dispenser for Waffles 'n Pancakes. No pouring, No drippy mess, Donut maker keeps batter of uniform consistency. Prevents air drying so batter won't thicken. So Easy To Clean!" The other end tells how to clean it after use. "Another Fairgrove Product, Copyright A.H.C. 1971."
The dispenser seems like new. The stopper disk had a tendency to shift to one side when I depressed the plunger for photographing. When I took it apart and reassembled, it worked straight and true.
The original box with great vintage graphics is in good condition, still sturdy but taped, crunched and lightly soiled. It claims there's a recipe booklet, but that's missing.
Does this old donut maker make you smile?
