Welcome to Lil' Orbits!

Important Notice: In the coming months, you will see a slight change in the packaging size for Lil' Orbits donut mix. We want to assure you that the mix you know and love is not changing in any way. We are merely adjusting the size of our packaging to accomodate new policies that FedEx and UPS are instituting that would add an additional $24.00 fee per package weighing 50 pounds or more. We do not agree with these new policies, so we are altering our bags from 50 pounds down to 46 pounds rather than pass these new charges on to you. We value you as a customer and feel this is the best option to take care of you. Thank you for understand, and please feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns.

Note: Out of an abundance of caution due to rising global health concerns, we are postponing our trade show attendance for the near future. Please take a look at our trade show dates page for continued updates on our future attendance. Thank you.

Fresh, Hot Mini-Donuts have always been a popular food item at carnivals, festivals, fairs and many other outdoor seasonal events. Our customers often tell us how much fun it is to hear their customers reminisce about eating mini-donuts when they were kids.

The Lil' Orbits Uni-matic II pancake & crepe machine can help you add new, easy-to-prepare items to your current menu, and also improve product consistency. The Uni-Matic will cook anything you can cook on a griddle, without oil or grease.

In addition to seasonal, outdoor events, there are hundreds of other places where our popular automated equipment can be very profitable. Here are just a few examples of where a well-placed mini-donut or pancake & crepe machine can help you become your own boss or expand your current business: coffee shops, bakeries, mall kiosks, storefronts (indoor or outdoor), sports arenas, food courts, entertainment complexes, high school sports, fundraising and much much more!

Equipment, Accessories & Supplies

Whether you want to start a small home based business selling from a portable doughnut concession trailer, or set up a permanent donut maker or pancake & crepe machine in a food concession stand or store, we have the equipment and supplies to help you make money.

Our machines are easy-to-operate, lightweight and portable and manufactured with pride right here in the heartland of the USA. All our machines provide what we call "action attraction" - the action of the machine as it cooks attracts customers to your location, and the wonderful cooking aromas will do the rest. Our carts, cabinets and kiosks come in bright colors with bold artwork and attractive stainless steel to showcase your operation to hungry customers. If you have your own logos we can arrange to have our cabinet 'wrapped' in vinyl to fit your motif, or to answer the needs of a mall or sports arena where you want to set up your operation.

Lil' Orbits has been in the mini donut industry since 1974, and our machines are built with years of knowledge behind them. We are proud to offer a full lifetime warranty for all original owners of equipment purchased from our factory. We stand behind every machine we build, so you can be assured that your business is built around a reliable machine.

Turning Donuts Into Dollars for over 40 years!
Made in America, and operated in over 100 countries!
