Last week I found one! It was a Black and Decker one, in almost new condition, and it was only $4. Yay!
The Shell Baker exterior.
The Shell Baker interior.
I made some simple strawberry n' whipped cream pastry dessert:
Before baking, remember to plug in the baker to preheat the unit.
I bought some phyllo dough pastry sheets.
Fold each sheet into little squares.
Place the folded sheets into the baking pan (detachable from the baker).
Place the pan into the unit, close the lid and bake for 8 minutes, and I got my pasty shells! OK they didn't look pretty but they were yummy.
I read about the phyllo dough sheets in these bakers... it takes a little bit longer than other kinds of doughs because it's harder to form little shell/cup shape out of these sheets. The instruction (that I found online) indicated that most of the doughs will only take about 2-3 minutes to bake.
I filled the pastry "shells" with whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Simple yumminess!
I think I'll be making a lot of edible shells/cups from now on.
