Enjoying churros and chocolate is one of the pleasures we look forward to every time we visit Spain. In every town and city in Spain the smell of fresh churros greets you as you step into the street in the morning.

This high quality churro maker brings this experience to your home. It is made in Spain by Bernar, the leading manufacturer of churro makers for generations. They include a classic recipe and detailed instructions. We recommend cooking churros in a deep fryer using vegetable oil, or lard, but you can also use a frying pan.

In days gone by each municipal market had at least one churro maker. In El Puerto de Santa María where we lived, we would see two families making them by the market gates -- right around the corner from the man who had myriad varieties of olives from dozens of pails and barrels. The churro batter would sizzle in a cauldron of hot lard as the husband would flex his muscles to extrude the batter into long pretzel type shapes. Then his wife or son would take a thin iron rod to lift out the crisp-fried churros as they became golden brown. They would snip them into handy pieces, fill a cone made of a page from an old newspaper, sprinkle with sugar, and deliver them to you for 5 or 10 duros (5 peseta pieces).

In recent years the churro makers have gone 'high tech.' At the Spring Feria in Sevilla the neon signs generate excitement flashing 'churros y chocolate'.

    "easy to use once you get the right consistency of the churro mix"
  • ROBERT COOPER - OCEANPORT, NJ  
    "Looks great, but I have not used yet. Looking forward to it, though"
  • Patrick - Cambridge, MA  
    "It was good having freshly made churros while it lasted, unfortunately it didn't last very long (less than 2 months). The other thing that was annoying was that the handle was actually quite uncomfortable when pushing out the dough. All in all, not a good buy."
  • Maria Posadas - Lindenhurst, NY  
    "I have been using this product for years and it works great, very easy to use. I bought this one for my future daughter in law and she was thrilled."

    "In spite of having tightened the end of this maker before using, it loosened, fell off into the hot grease, and melted enough to make it useless- all before I finished my first batch of churros. Beware! This is not designed well!"
  • Christine  
    "After two uses it broke."
  • Jackie  
    "This was exactly what I wanted. Would consider purchasing more for family members."
  • Beth Wilson  
    "I used this on Saturday morning with the 3 granddaughters. The five year old helped with the dough and sugar and cinnamon coating. We doubled the recipe and ate them all. Easy to use and easy to clean."
  • Maria Martin  
    "The churro pastry maker is very easy to manage. I have it for a while and use it often in the winter months, specially on sundays (when it is freezing cold out there) Wonderful treat to be enjoyed with company and a thick hot chocolate."
  • Carmelo
