Thanks to Rodney!

For all of you folks who have lost the instructions and recipes that came with your donut maker or who have purchesed one at a garage sale or elsewhere and the instructions were gone, a reader (Thanks, A.B.!) has generously sent them for your enlightenment and enjoyment:

  How To Use:

1.  Before first use, wash cooking surfaces with hot, sudsy water 
and a soft sponge, dishcloth, or nylon mesh.  
NEVER IMMERSE TOP COOKING SURFACE IN WATER.

2.  Brush vegetable oil (or melted unsalted shortening) on cooking 
surfaces.  To best preserve non-stick coating, oil cooking surfaces 
before each use and after cleaning.

3.  Close your Donut Maker.

4.  Plug cord into 120 volt wall outlet.

5.  With your Donut Maker closed, preheat for 10 minutes.

6.  After 10 minutes, raise cover and fill donut cavities to fill 
line in a continuous circular motion around each donut ring until 
all 6 donut cavities are full.  You will find it easier to pour 
the batter if you use a vessel with a spout.  Do not overfill 
donut cavities with batter.

7.  After donut cavities are filled, close cover and bake according 
to directions specified in the donut recipe.  Generally, baking time 
is 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes.

8.  A) Raise cover on back hinge.
    
     B) Remove donuts with plastic spatula or small wooden utensil.  
	 Sharp-edged cooking tools such as forks can damage the non-stick 
	 coating.  SPECIAL NOTE: When donuts are finished baking, simply 
	 lift each donut out of cavity.  If donuts do no lift out easily, 
	 close cover for a few seconds longer.

      C) To make another batch of donuts, brush oil on cooking surfaces, 
	  then preheat your Donut Maker six or seven minutes.  Always repeat 
	  Step C before each new batch of donuts.  It is necessary that you 
	  keep your Donut Maker closed while baking donuts and during 
	  preheating.

9.  Your donuts are well baked when they are a light tan color on the 
bottom and a golden brown on tope.  If you desire a more browned bottom 
half, turn donuts over so the bottom faces up.  Close cover for one minute. 

10.  Should the top half of your donuts be light and not brown, you are 
not filling the donut cavities with sufficient batter.  Try adding a 
little more batter to each donut cavity.

11.  Should the bottom half of your donuts be too light, accompanied 
with over-browning on the top, you may be overfilling the unit causing 
the two cooking surfaces to part, or you may not be preheating long 
enough.
