I know this is a strange travelogue, but maybe someone else will be as fascinated as I am with the machine that automatically spits out tasty Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. In the photo, they call it something else, but this is the temp and humidity controlled chamber in which the doughnuts rise. You can see them on their little swing seats and the process is timed so they rise just the right amount.
The doughnuts are dropped from the belt into the vat of hot oil on the right. Somehow their passage to the left is timed so that when they get to the "flipper" in the middle of the photo they are perfectly cooked on one side. Then they are flipped and sent on their way.
Leaving the flipper, the doughnuts go along on rollers so that excess oil drops off and they cool slightly before being given a shower of frosting.
This is the whole line viewed from the end where they proceed on the conveyor for boxing or to be picked off singly for drooling customers like me.
Now wasn't that educational???
