IF you love doughy churros you might want to snap up Aldi’s bargain churros maker for just £14.99 – and it could make the perfect Christmas gift.
The Spanish treat, which tastes a bit like a doughnut, sees fried dough served warm and sprinkled in sugar and cinnamon, often accompanied by a dipping pot of melted chocolate.
But now you can buy your own device to make the popular pud from the comfort of your own home.
And not only does Aldi promise it will produce “delicious” results, but it also claims the churro are “healthier” because the device bakes them rather than fries them.
Available in red, black or white the Ambiano-branded kitchen appliance makes four churro a pop, so it could be great for having friends or family round.
Aldi just recommends you turn your churros maker around during baking to ensure even results.
The appliance measures in at 32.2cm x 12.6cm x 10cm with a roughly 70cm cable that you will need to plug into an electric socket.
Once on, the temperature ranges from 180 degrees centigrade to 220 degrees centigrade and there’s an indicator light to tell you when the machine is ready to use.
After use, Aldi says the non-stick cooking surface ensures hassle-free cleaning and you can even store it upright to save on space.
The kit comes with a three-year warranty meaning you’re covered during this period for any faults or problems.
Unfortunately though, the machines have already sold out online at Aldi but you’ll find them in store from tomorrow (November 10).
Given their popularity you might want to go quick to get your hands on one. Use Aldi’s store locator tool to find your nearest and to check ahead that there’s stock.
Aldi’s price seems to be a stonking deal – we could only find the same machine being sold on eBay where it cost £8 more at £23, plus free delivery.
A similar looking device on Amazon, meanwhile, costs £24.50 plus £4.95 delivery
Aldi doesn’t say whether there’s a recipe for churro included, although the machine does come with an instruction manual.
But there are plenty of recipes you can use online with the dough typically being made from ingredients including butter, plain flour, baking powder, water and eggs.
If you don’t want to make your own, Aldi has sold caramel flavoured churros in the past, which you can bake in the oven.
While earlier this year Lidl sold bags of ready made churro for 99p.
And Morrisons’ new Christmas party food range includes chocolate orange churros – yum!
