The mechine is very easy to work, and cleaning it is easy as well.

Whether you can enjoy candies with sugar, or are diabetic, here are flavor combos and suggestions plus what you CAN'T use.

First off, here is what WON'T work with this machine:

* Skittles, Lemonheads or Boston Baked Beans
* Hot Tamales or Ike & Mikes
* Gummy Bears or Worms
* Gumballs or Round Candy
* Citrus Slices or Starburst
* Anything chewy, gummy or with too much cream

For best results, use no more than two pieces of candy (so it spins faster), but you can also cut/break candy into halves. One piece of candy on one side of the spinner, and two halves opposite that for better flavor combinations.

Good candy choices include Lifesavers (fruit, Hawaiian Fruit, Fruiteria, butter rum) but not their Mints (won't fluff), Werther's Original & Chocolate Hard Candies, Butterscotch, Cinnamon Discs, Peppermints, and Coffee (but not Nips). Brach's Soda Poppers (Root Beer, 7UP, Dr. Pepper, Orange Crush) work great, but only use one candy cut in half or it won't fluff right.

Here's what I've come up with so far:

* Orange Muffin: 1 Butterscoth + 1/2 Cinnamon + 1/2 Orange LS
* Turtle Frappe: 1 Hard Coffee + 1 Werther's Caramel Chocolate
* Raspberry Mocha: 1 Coffee + 1/2 Raspberry + 1/2 Werthers Choc.
* Chocolate Covered Strawberry: Strawberry LS + 1 Werthers Choc.
* Cherry Garcia: 1 Cherry LS + 1/2 Werthers Choc + 1/2 Vanilla
* Candy Apple: 1 Green Apple + 1 Cinnamon Disc

Your cotton candy will be fluffier with sugar-based candy, though sugar-free still works fine. Avoid candies that have too many non-sugar ingredients; heavy creams or actual peanut butter will cause it to not fluff.

My cotton candy maker arrived 6 days ago and I've used it every day since.

I heated it up for about 8 minutes before adding the sugar/candy, and the floss appeared about a minute after that. Since there were a lot of kids lined up to test the results, the two plastic cones that come with it weren't nearly enough to go around so we used thin 12" long wooden dowel rods which you can get at a craft store for about 5 cents each.

Before you make your first batch, you may want to watch some clips on making cotton candy on youtube. There is a certain technique to it but once you get the hang of it it's very easy.

We had it running, on and off, for about an hour as we tried different flavors and candies. The motor kept going strong the whole time. Make sure it's on a stable surface because the kids will want to lean in as far as they can to watch it.

It works with both hard candy and the sugar cotton candy mixes like Flossine. We found that it doesn't work as well with the hard candy that's typically pretty sticky, like Jolly Ranchers. The manufacturer also recommends not using round hard candy, like sour balls.

Clean up is a cinch. The metal spinner part and the plastic bowl come off, then you just soak them in hot water for a few minutes and the sugar dissolves.

Definitely the most fun appliance I've ever owned!

I have a few things to say, both about this product and the things you can use to make cotton candy with it, about the hateful and (sorry) uninformed feedback from some buyers, and about expectations on planet earth.

First, those expectations: you can go buy a chimpanzee. You can put him in little clothes and ask him to shake your hand, and you can giggle as he eats pieces of banana. And you can either admit to yourself that it's a chimpanzee, or you can fool yourself into thinking it's a live-in Certified Public Accountant.

Go with the first option. Enjoy the handshakes and banana nibbling. Because if you hand him your W-2s and your bank statements and your box of receipts, you'll be really unhappy when you come back on April 15th and he hasn't prepared your Income Tax returns.

He's a chimp. He TOLD you in the ad that led you to buy him that he is a chimp. It never said "Chimp CPA who can also whip up a heckuva chocolate souffle."

That was YOU projecting YOUR desires on him. Not him making promises he didn't and couldn't keep.

So please, people: before you buy this product and get on here and give it a One-Star review stating how disappointed your 75 party guests were that they had to wait a whole 5 minutes each for a ball of candy floss made of chewy caramels, THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION CLEARLY TOLD YOU WHAT YOU WERE GETTING YOURSELF INTO.

- This product is adorable, and so versatile in that it creates delicate cotton candy out of not only traditional commercial candy floss, but also common table sugar and an almost unlimited variety of hard candies.

- "Almost" unlimited is stated very clearly in the description and the more helpful user reviews, as well as the enclosed direction manual.

This is an AMAZING cotton candy machine and I'm very satisfied with it; however there are good and bad things about it, such as:
Pro:
-You can also use floss or regular sugar (just use the measuring cup that comes with it, no more than that) and it makes alot more than the hard candy would
-If you use hard candy cotton candy it starts coming out immediately and fast, but if you use sugar you have to wait about a minute before it starts coming out. It makes a big ball in about 1-2 minutes
-It heats up quick and makes little to no noise and doesn't vibrate around like other cotton candy machines
-It takes only 3-5 minutes, at most, to set all of it up
-Sugar and floss doesn't fly out everywhere
-comes with two reusable cones
-Fairly easy to clean up
Cons:
-the hard candy(I used jolly ranchers) doesn't work so well.The cotton candy isn't fluffy and I believe it tastes awful
-Instruction booklet was a bit vague
*Side-note: You want to let it cool for a few minutes between batches, and this machine is definitely only for small groups. After you finish using it you want to wash the bowl and top portion quickly because the sugar sticks there and starts to harden, and keep the disk on for a while because it is hot then soak it in hot water before washing(wash this piece thoroughly!). I hope this was really helpful and I really think this machine is worth the money! However, does anyone know where I can buy floss sugar at a store because I couldn't find it at Walmart, Target, and Food Lion! Your help is appreciated. :)
