      The first cotton candy cone came out perfectly. I tried several more times to get it right and it just wouldn't form a good cone. I gave it to a friend who has a day care and uses it once in awhile.

      Verified Purchase

      We bought this as a Christmas gift for our 11 year old. She used it that night and loved it! We have since used it several times and it is always a huge hit. We just purchased the flossing sugar and she liked that as well. The candies worked perfectly also.

      this came very fast. it is easy to use all u need is some sugarless candy, u plug it in and then after it warms up u put an unwrapped piece of candy in the middle it starts making the cotton candy. all u need to do know is to swirl it around your cone that is included then enjoy eating it.

      works with hard candy, even better with flavored sugar granules. The local equipment rental supply has the granules and paper cones for much cheaper than online stores. Thinking of taking this out of the closet on Christmas Eve/Christmas and trying it with candy cane bits for a special treat!

      Cotton candy from hard candy - how fun is that?! The kids love it. I like it - I'm the one who ends up running the machine after they reach their frustration limit. It's tricky to catch and roll the cotton candy and easy to hit the center, melting and annihilating some of the fluff you have already caught. Patient kids with determination will be okay. Plastic cones come with the machine but do not work unless coated with something sticky. I have the kids use computer paper rolled into a cone, lightly coated with honey. Then the cotton candy adheres while twirling it. It also doesn't make big fluffy mounds. The hard candy is yummy, but not as soft. I use either Life Savers or Jolly Ranchers - 2 candies opposing each other. It must preheat, or your candy making will fail. I've had this for a while, and it still works fine. Cleaning up the machine is easy. There will be, however, little particles of cotton candy everywhere.

      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!!

      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 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!

    • 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.!

      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.

      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!
