Chefast Donut Pan Set Review

We love doughnuts! Do you spell out donut, or doughnut? I always spelled it the longer way doughnut, but I see donut more and more. They both seem acceptable according to google.

Recently I got Chefast Donut Pan Set to Review. It's $16.90 on Amazon. If you don't like bigger donuts, you can get their small donut pan for $12.90. 



The Set Comes With:

  • A silicone mold - enough to make nine donuts. 
  • A silicone spatula 
  • Pastry bags - 5 total
I opened up everything, and washed it in warm soapy water. It's said that they can go in the dishwasher, but the pan and spatula last longer if they get hand washed. I notice it takes awhile for silicone pans to dry - up to 2 hours. What I do is take them outside to fling the water off of them. That works great! 




Lemon Donuts:

I wanted to try something different, so I made Lemon Doughnuts. They were so good!


Tip: Put your donut pan on a metal pan or baking stone when you bake them. You won't have to clean the extra pan or stone. It will just make the silicone pan easier to grab from the stove.

I didn't pipe them in, but the pan does come with piping bags. The recipe does make 12 donuts. There is 9 spots in the pan. I dug out another donut pan to finish the job. I have to say that I like this pan better though. The fact that it's silicone, the donuts just pop out easier.


Instead I used the spatula that comes in the kit. It did a great job of getting the rest of the batter out of the mixing bowl.


Because I used coconut sugar they are not a lemony yellow. They sure did taste lemony good though!

We skipped the glaze. We just didn't need more sugar. They boys didn't mind. They gobbled them up, and asked for another. I imagine you could drizzle some melted dark chocolate on there if you'd rather.


The boys each asked for another one.



What's your favorite kind of donut?

I can definitely see how these would be a good addition to the kitchen . I love lemon, I've never had a lemon donut. I think it would def. be delish! Glad you like your new molds, and thanks for the tip on flinging the water off outside.

I've had a donut mould for a long time but never got down to making any.. I want to make some sushi donuts. Have you seen those around? Just rice and toppings / fillings. I'll try it out and let you know how it goes :P
