      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31).

Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

I buy the Woolworths brand chai sachets to use for coating.

Best if eaten fresh and warm, but aren't all doughnuts!?
