Makes a fun item in the kitchen, it take practice to get the art of making cotton candy down. Candy flavors are stronger when made into cotton candy, warning.
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.
I bought this Cotton candy Maker for my kids one Christmas. They love cotton candy, so it was a fun purchase. It's nice that the cones are included. It does take some practice to get the candy swirled on the cone. You have to babysit it, though, because the candy will burn onto the spinner if you don't get it all scooped up in time. Then it's really hard to clean!
