I love this machine - it was relatively easy to set up and was amazed at how quickly it made cotton candy! I am using it for parties -especially my carnival themed Halloween party. The cotton candy was delicious. Be sure to order cotton candy sugar from a retailer (can find online) as well as paper cones as this machine only comes with a small sample of sugar and cones.
This machine is fun and easy to use and really nice to look at. It makes a good deal of fluffy cotton candy quickly. It is also easy to clean. There are a few caveats, first, the instructions for assembly are poor, only a barely labeled diagram to follow, you can figure it through, but it will take a bit of time. The wheels are a bit shaky, but they seem to be holding up. My unit has periods that it is quite noisy, and then settles down. And though it might look like the cart has a storage area in the body, it does not. The plastic dome cover falls off easily if you don’t pay attention. These negatives are the only reason it lost one star in my ratings.
i havnt ran the product yet, but it was realy easy to set up after u figured out the little instructions. but is life size. stands perfect for easy monuvering, along with making cotton candy. i would recomend this if u r intrestead in getting one.
The price was far lower than anywhere else and the $2.95 shipping further lowered the overall cost. However, assembly instructions are the worst!!!! We were able to assemble it in about an hour, but I am not comfortable as there are bolts left and some predrilled holes are larger than ANY of the screws or bolts. No instruction as to which bolts or screws go where and there are several different types. Machine is however, very nice and works great. The sugar that comes with it is not very good. I suggest ordering the gold medal. Its very cheap and i did not have any waste and the taste was considerably better.
me and my hubby recieved this today put it together took about 10 min had all needed tools with it which was great.it was a christmas present for my 5yr old and 12 yr old but we had to use it early we all loved it. easy to clean the only thing that i would of liked would be some kind of storage but its a great item love love love it
the experience was good tyhank for every thing.................

I made 5 cotton candy cones and the heat component in the center shot out sparks and broke. It still turned on but wouldn't heat up to melt the sugar! WTF?!? Thank goodness that Nostalgia Electrics replaced the piece for me... there was no way I was taking that thing apart after the ridiculous instructions to send it back to overstock! I have not tried to make a cone since the new piece came in, but the heat appears to work on the new piece.
