Ball Plunger for Type B/F/N

For Ball Donuts, Donut 'Holes', Loukoumades, and Hushpuppies.

You can make a lot of cake donut 'Holes', in a very short time with this plunger and standard cake donut batter. You can also make Loukoumades and Southern Fried Hushpuppies with this plunger. Plungers can be ordered with 1, 2, 3, 4 or even 5 holes. How big your finished product will be depends on:

  • The size (diameter of the plunger".
  • The size of the holes in the plunger. 
  • The number of holes in the plunger. 

If you already have a 1¾ inch plunger and cylinder, then you can choose a 1¾ inch ball plunger, and use the cylinder you already have. The most efficient ball plunger is 2 inch because it can "push out" a lot of cake donut batter through the holes in the plunger. Three holes of ¾-inch diameter are common choices. There are many different choices of plunger size, hole diameter and number of holes possible. 

As with all other cake donuts, you can increase or decrease the size of the finished donut using the dial setting on your Depositor, from 1 to 3. As your dial setting gets bigger, the batter will come out longer - like toothpaste coming out of a tube. The frying process will turn the batter into a round ball shape. If the dial setting is too big, the final product may become longer and slightly oblong shape. This is because batter is squeezed out of the holes, like toothpaste out of a tube.
