There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Unit came packed well, but was beat up pretty good in shipping. Had a hole in the carton. The bowl has 2 deep dents in it from being pressed up against the steel shell of the unit itself. Also one of the metal straps the feet is attached to was dented in pretty badly. However not worth RMAing in my opinion, since it does not affect operation other than being unbalanced on a flat surface.
The unit spins sugar FAST, once you get going about 30 seconds per cone. Worked great at our neighborhood block party and kids were not left waiting long for another cone. I found that keeping the heat off if you are not actually spinning helps with the smoke and burning. You can spin with regular table sugar but for me it had an odd taste. I'll run regular sugar through as the first batch to clean up the head before serving.
You're going to want the plastic dome, too. The machine throws floss vertically up into the air, and when you finish a cone you will have a few loose threads that will most likely get on you. Unfortunately the edge on the dome is not finished well so will snag your cotton candy if you are not extra careful.
As with all cotton candy machines, some fluff will fly up and away from the machine. I always make mine outdoors for this reason although unfortunately this often also introduces a bit more wind so pick your poison. I did order a bubble/cover for this one even though they are pricey. I had considered purchasing a floss stabilizer but I found some reviews that indicated that the bubble is much more beneficial so I am going to start with that first. Plus, the floss tends to start generating right in the middle of the machine over and around the hole and not on the sides. I hold the cone right above the hole in the center and start turning.
My one complaint is the amount of sugar that is thrown onto the sides of the pan. Even with one scoop it seems that almost half of it was wasted on the sides. For me, one scoop = one cone so I could see a gallon of floss sugar going pretty fast. But my local Smart & Final sells it for $4 a carton so still a great price for a bunch of cotton candy.
I originally had one of those $40 cotton candy machines and this is just in a whole other class. Very happy with the purchase so far.
The machine seems very well made and is fairly easy to clean too. I love everything about it!
Be careful is a very bad product and know I can't return it.
