    Hit with the Grandkids!!

    The grandkids got turned on by the cotton candy at the county fair, but I had to feel guilty about letting them eat spun sugar, regardless of how delicious we found it to be. The beauty of this machine--beyond its simplicity of use right out of the box and the ease of cleanup--was its ability to spin cotton candy out of sugar free candy. At least that part of the guilt is gone--and the little ones love the different flavors and colors they get from the wide range of hard candies on the market. Didn't know what to expect, but this was a no-brainer for old grand-dad.

    I am in my 50s, my granddaughter is 5. We have so much fun making an endless variety of flavors. My favorite is strawbearry creamsavers with worther's original on the outside. She likes cherry lifesavers with grape on the outside. This cotton candy maker is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. I took it to work and my co-workers enjoyed making and eating cotton candy. We felt like kids again! Time is one of the most precious things to share, and this cotton candy maker lets you spend quality time with others sharing, laughing, talking and my favorite - eating.

    My kids love it. Who can argue with that?

    This is a fun toy. Yes, a toy. You can make cotton candy with it but it's not very much at one time. You put hard candies/candy in the center piece and it spins around and melts until it spins the cotton candy. My kids love to sit there with a flashlight in one hand and the cotton candy wand and watch for the strings to appear. My kids are 8 and 11 and do a decent job spinning the wand (or whatever you wanna call it) so the candy gets on to the stick, but they struggled early on to not bonk it into the side making the candy hard and not cotton-y at all. But they play with it a lot and really enjoy wowing their friends when they come over. It was a great event for about 5 kids to all participate in and watch and eat and play. They always have fun trying new flavors and playing with this toy.

    I received this Cotton Candy Machine as an xmas gift and I am very satisfied. It's very simple to use. Place a couple pieces of your favorite hard candy and tasty cotton candy is born! The instructions recommend adding only 2 pieces of candy at a time which limits the amount of cotton candy you can make; but other than that, I have no complaints. The clean up is a cinch since you can easily take it apart. My husband and I have experimented with all sorts of hard candy and flavors. Lifesavers (fruit-flavored) seem to work the best. Cinnamon flavored hard candy works well too and tastes great. Now I'm on the search for cotton candy flavored hard candy.

    I love this machine and had a very enjoyable snow day with my three kids and two of their friends! I think when purchasing this machine you should have realistic expectations. If you want circus or carnival size cotton candy, then this is not the machine for you! It does however spin just the right amount for a fun time for you to spend with your kids! We used yummy earth organic lollipops and the flavors were amazing!!!! We crushed them up in a ziploc bag and scooped them into the hot zone! We made 6 batches of cotton candy without any clogging issues and the machine was very easy to clean after its use. We have already made plans to do it again...hopefully after SCHOOL tomorrow!

    I had bought a different cotton candy maker last Christmas, but sugar flew everywhere and it produces an extremely small amount of cotton candy and it broke after a couple of uses. I got this one this year and it works GREAT. NO flying sugar and it makes a good amount of cotton candy- especially if you use flossing sugar. Hard candy works great too but it doesn't make quite as much! I recommend this product 100%. GREAT BUY! *Make sure you let it heat up for about *5 MINUTES.*

    Good product, but not suited for large groups

    The cotton candy machine had clear instructions, was easy to assemble and clean, and does what it is supposed to do. When we purchased it, we thought that we might be able to use this for a school carnival, but it takes a long time to produce a small amount of cotton candy. In our case, this is perfect for home use, since a piece or two of hard candy makes a good snack-sized treat for our daughter, but if you're planning on using this for a party, you might want to reconsider.
