A trend in kitchen appliances is customization. Holstein Housewares has carved a niche out of making “novelty electrics” — using the basic design of the waffle maker (pour, close and bake) — and creating appliances that make doughnuts, empanadas, muffins and more. Does the idea of owning an appliance that makes doughnuts and doughnuts only make you smile? If the answer is yes, then maybe Holstein’s latest invention will appeal to you.
Non-stick, round surface
The “Multi-Maker” promises to save time and money. This compact and colorful appliance (available in green or yellow) is designed for “making anything from a creamy goat cheese spinach omelet to a crispy golden arepa (corn pancake) or even a large macadamia nut cookie!” No pots and pans? No problem.
This one appliance covers it. It is smaller than most appliances of its kind, so good for tight spaces. It also comes with a safety lock and a red indicator light to let you know when it is temperature-ready.
The list price on the other Holstein appliances is around $35, so this one will probably be priced accordingly. We’ve asked the company for one to try out. Follow this blog and stay tuned.
