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.
