Hello christophergsmith-ga,

I?d like to get some additional information from you regarding your question. 

Are you looking only for a small fryer that can be used for either
donuts or churros or other fried pastries or also associated
equipment? Churros are made by using an extruder that is either a
stand-alone machine or is an attachment to a multi-purpose machine.
Are you looking for a churro extruder as well? Churro vendors also
frequently use a warmer to display the churros. Are you interested in
a warmer to go along with the fryer and/or extruder? Churro carts are
another option. Where will you produce your churros ? in a kitchen or
in mobile vending situation?

How many donuts/churros do you want to produce in a given time period?
What is your budget? Are there any other factors about your situation
that would help me with getting you exactly what you need?

I look forward to your clarification.

I think that the churro dough is easier to make and keep than for
regular donuts.  I would like a small stand alone unit that I can use
here at the Mystery Spot.  We do not have alot of visitors but I think
that I need to be able to sell 10 to 15 orders an hour.  The warmer is
not something that I thought about but sounds like a good idea.  I saw
a very simple set up in Mexico.  There was an extruder, a hot oil area
and a place for the sugar mix.

Hello christophergsmith-ga

Are you really the operator/owner of the Mystery Spot? I remember the ubiquitous bumper stickers
from years ago and how my family eventually decided to check it out
when we went to the boardwalk one summer. I?m glad to hear it?s still

The quest for a churro system for you was much more challenging than I
thought it would be. My research shows that you have several options
to choose from depending on your specific needs. It seems that you
would prefer to get a simple, small yet complete setup with the fryer,
extruder, sugaring station and warmer/display case in a compact unit.
Mr. Churros USA seems the best bet for this. They offer a wide variety
of setups and programs for a complete package. Other food equipment
vendors can also provide you with everything you need but you will
have to do more shopping to decide exactly how you want to set up your

The price of the equipment will depend on the decisions you?ve made
about what kind of operation you want to set up. EBay is always a good
option for searching for used equipment but availability and variety
will be spotty. I?ve also found some used equipment exchange services
that might be of interest to you. Another possibility might be to get
a concession cart setup. Several concession equipment vendors could
help you with this. California recently passed a law to permit churro

You said you wanted to offer freshly cooked churros but it seems that
you could also buy frozen churros. In this case you would need an oven
and a warmer unit. The quality would not be the same but it might be
easier to handle than hot oil frying.

You also asked for recipes. I found that for there are several
suppliers of churro mixes for commercial operations. Some of them
include recipes. I?ve also found lots of churro recipes for home use.

I?ve organized what I?ve found so you can get a comprehensive overview
of your options. What to do next will depend on your evaluation of
what?s available and how much you want to pay for it. I hope that the
materials I?ve found will give you the answers you need. Please don?t
hesitate to ask for clarification on any of this.

Wishing you great success at a wonderful old tourist attraction.

Churros Recipe



Churro law is freshest thing going
January 14, 2004

Up to now, churros in California could be sold from mobile carts only
if they'd been pre-made, frozen and then baked in a small oven on the

With the start of the new year, a California law took effect to allow
churros to be fried fresh at "mobile food facilities," or carts. State
and local public-health officials are working out particulars to
implement AB 1045 by Assemblyman Tim Leslie, RTahoe City, a big fan of
fresh churros.

State health authorities are requiring that churro carts meet the same
standards as restaurants for cleaning and sanitizing utensils and
equipment, including a "three-compartment utensil- washing sink" and
hot and cold running water.

The following bills were signed into law by Gov. Gray Davis during the
first half of the 2003-04 legislative session. Unless specified
otherwise, the laws take effect in January.
