Do Canned Biscuit Donuts Store Well

Not really. Just like any other “fried” food, it is best served fresh. If you put any sugar on the donuts it kind of melts as time goes on.


These canned biscuit donuts are best when served warm. You can save leftovers but they won’t taste near as good as day one.

What to Do With Donut Hole Dough

Cook it of course! Make little bite-size donut holes for kiddos or yourself. Just lower cooking time so these smaller dough pieces don’t overcook.

Which Is Better Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi

What’s amazing here is both machines work the same. The Ninja Foodi is an Instant Pot and Air Fryer in one essentially. You simply change out the lid for each method of cooking you want.


So if you are looking to invest, just think would you benefit from a pressure cooker as well, or maybe just want Air Fryer only. Either way, both the Air Fryer and the Foodi are both highly recommended in my book!

  1. These donuts look good. I have an Instant Pot Duo, but not the new air fryer lid the company just put out. I’m a little confused, I didn’t realized it was called a Ninja lid. Can these be cooked in just an air fryer?

    1. The Ninja is A Different Brand. I am not sure if you can use the new air crisp kid that InstantPot just but out with your Duo. My understanding is it is only available with the Duo Crisp or you Could get a Ninja Foodi…

    2. the one I have is the Ninja foodi Grill.
      it comes with a crisper basket, a cleaning brush, and
      veggie basket
