  • Fun for home use!
    Verified Purchase

    I've operated many cotton baddy machines at our school carnivals and this home machine is very good! Just be fast and one you get a little floss wrapped around the cone.. Go around and around the basin while tailing the cone to create that beautiful full cotton candy look! Blue tastes most original we felt!bit gets hot so supervise! Enjoy!!

  • Easy to set up and easy to use!
    Verified Purchase

    A Christmas gift to my 6 year old, this was easy to set up with the help of his 10 year old brother and older sister. It made cotton candy that tasted just like the County Fair! A bit noisy because the clear ring lid did not fasten down.

    Takes a long time to make. Loud, hot and not much cotton candy is produced for the amount of time spent.

  • Very dispointing
    Verified Purchase

    Was very difficult to use and did not produce cotton candy-item would become hard and chewy.

  • Great buy!
    Verified Purchase

    Our son is a cotton candy fanatic, and asked for a machine for Christmas. I viewed several and decided on this one. It was exactly what he hoped for, and definitely exceeded our expectations for the price. We tried various candies, and he became quite the little expert on making the whole family sweet treats. He now plans to do the same for his birthday guests.

    This cotton candy maker makes game night or movie night fun. This also sits in our game room, and is a big hit with guests, and we get many compliments.

  • Homemade wonder
    Verified Purchase

    Just the look on the kid's faces when the cotton candy started flossing out was worth the price of the machine. We made two batches of it using jolly ranchers since that is what we had on hand. It does not make as much as you see in the photo with one batch (two pieces) of candy. The trick is to follow the instructions and turn the machine on for 10 minutes, walk away - and then go back and turn it off (so it comes to a complete stop), drop in your two pieces of candy and start it back up - it spins out the cotton candy almost instantly. Once it's heated you can stop, add more candy and keep churning it out till you have as much as they show in the photo. It is also easy to slide it off the plastic gathering cones into zip sandwich bags so you don't have to balance it all on the cone in between runs. Fun times for young and old alike!!

  • Too little candy made
    Verified Purchase

    I would not recommend this unit. It is too small. It takes way too long to heat up for candy to make and when it makes the candy it is very little. I had to continue to wash the candy holder. You cannot over fill because it will not melt, I think it works as designed, but the unit is way too small. Only produces a very small amount of candy.

  • Love This Cotton Candy Machine!!
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this for my 7 year old son for Christmas. He loves it!. We make the best candy out of it. The kit, isnt very tasty. Lemonade flavored cotton candy doesn't appeal to us, but any hard candy will work and we love to experiment.!

  • Very cool
    Verified Purchase

    This is fun. You don't really believe it will work until you see the candy flowwing before your eyes. Some candy doesn't floss as well, but it still works. Jolly ranchers were a problem, but they still work. There just ends up being some slight crunch in the cotton candy. Werthers work like a dream!

  • Impressed
    Verified Purchase

    I don't write many reviews but I was so impressed by this little machine I thought I better. I was very leary about buying this but after my 5 year old daughter asked Santa 2 years in a row for a cotton candy maker, I couldn't not get one. I was pretty sure I was probably wasting my money. Well, I was very wrong! I also bought the kit that goes with it that has candy, pink sugar, and the paper sticks. We have only used it once, but like I said I was very impressed. I did read reviews and read one that said it was very important to let the machine heat up. I let it heat up for about 8 minutes, shut it off and added the sugar. It took about a minute or two for the sugar to start webbing but once it did it was really easy. I would probably let my o8 and 10 year old try to do it, but that will have to wait until they can do it outside. I didn't have any problems and it wasn't a big mess, but sure it could be with the kids. The cotton candy was very good tasted just like we bought it somewhere. After we made it with the sugar we decided we had to see how the sugar free candy worked. So we put 2 candies in and turned it on. Instantly it was webbing. Probably because it was already warm. My 10 year old said he liked the candies cotton candy better, but my duaghter still liked the original. We haven't tried with the regular candy yet. I am very happy with this Cotton Candy maker and would defintely reccomend it to a friend. I hope it lasts a long time.

  • Nice product, but we received it USED!
    Verified Purchase

    We ordered this item for a Santa present. Upon opening it Christmas Eve to set it up, we discovered sugar granules down in the base of the machine as well as chipping on the metal surface. Also, there was sugar residue on the plastic dome! We just tried it out, and it seems to be working fine. Just would like to have known that we were ordering/receiving a used/refurbished? product!

    I just love this little cotton candy maker! I had success the very first cone and the only failure I had was once when I used a sugar made specifically to not melt on the top of cakes. My favorite candy to use is Werthers Original and also their coffee flavored caramel! Two candies makes a perfect "adult" serving. My second favorite candy to use is Starlight Peppermint Mints -- oh my, goodness, it's JUST like eating a fluffy candy cane! I even like the combo of 1 orginal Werthers and 1 Starlight Mint. My least favorite candies are the original fruit flavored lifesavers and it's not that they technically didn't work, but they came out very strong in fruit flavor and not that subtleness that the Werthers produces. I have placed a vanilla bean in regular sugar and this weekend I want to make Vanilla Cotton Candy. As other reviewers have stated, make sure the little disk that spins is flat when you begin -- you can check it by simply hand turning the disk while the machine is unplugged. Also, watch one of the You Tube videos... they will be most helpful. Clean-up is a breeze!
