How a Krispy Kreme Donut Machine Works

Jared Owen presents another fascinating animation of a complex machine—or, in this case, multiple machines working together. In this video, he walks us through the automated donut factory, which you can find at many Krispy Kreme locations. These machines can crank out up to 3000 donuts per hour. Our favorite part is the glaze waterfall.

Making a Skittles Donut

You could make a Skittles-flavored donut by sprinkling some of the chewy candies on a glazed Krispy Kreme, but the guys at the Hydraulic Press Channel prefer to make donuts with industrial equipment. Using a custom-machined tool, they squish some M&Ms and Skittles into toroid shapes. They look like giant Life Savers.
