5.0 out of 5 stars It’s works! Just keep trying!
By Amazon Customer on March 19, 2017
Verified Purchase

We got a different cotton candy maker from a toy store before this one and it was broken right out of the box! The reviews for it were bad anyway so I decided to return it and get this one plus a floss sugar with paper sticks pack from Candy Express. The first time we used it we followed the directions by heating it up for 15 min. then adding one scoop of sugar. It yielded small bits of cotton candy. The kids enjoyed but I thought we’d get sticks full. The second time we used it I let the machine heat up for like 45 min.! This time after a few scoops of sugar it started to yield larger quantities of cotton candy. What also helped was that we made sure to only turn off the machine just long enough to load the sugar. Then we let the candy “floss” start to build up before we started in with a paper stick. What finally gave us a real stick of cotton candy was laying the stick against the edge of the top of the machine, holding it perpendicular (like across it level to the base) and turning it as if we were roasting a chicken or something! We found that one scoop of sugar gave us 1 stick of cotton candy.

So if it’s not working out for you keep trying! Make sure the machine is good and hot, once hot don’t keep it off for too long, and keep the stick held above the machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Flavor Combinations – Plus Which Candies WON’T Work
By Compay on December 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
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.

For best results, DO NOT stir your cone in a circle around the spinner (like how you would stir a pot of soup). That only works on big machines, you’ll be too close to your heat source and some of the candy will burn. Instead, do that for just a few seconds to get some fluff on your cone. Then wave the cone side to side a few inches above the spinner, while slowly spinning it in your hand (like the way you twist your fork with spaghetti on it). That twisting will pull fluff towards your cone; you can even raise the cone a few inches every so often to pull more fluffed candy up and out of the bowl. Mostly you want to keep it away from the hot spinner.

This is a really fun product, and you’re given many ways to experiment with flavors. Definitely get your hands on one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be patient
By Zinnia E. Satour-chraa on August 1, 2017
Verified Purchase
I watched several YTBE videos so I was prepared for this
First one was skinny but after getting the hang of it I got a full one
Now first let it heat up 10 min
I put my scoop of flossing sugar and turned it on
Waited til I saw a good amount then began spinning
When you see it stops webbing
Turn it off put another scoop and quickly turn it back on and continue
If you turn the machine off for more than a minute and you try to make another it burns the sugar and gets crunchy
So remember scoop turn on spin turn off immediately scoop immediately turn back on you can do this 3-4 times before sugar burns
Cleaning ……
Disassemble run hot tap water sugar comes right off plastic parts
For the sugar spinner get a bowl set it in and boil water with a tea pot and pour in after 5-10 sugar dissolves make sure everything is bone dry before you do it again
Hope this helps remember be patient and have fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Mood for Love?
By BriLa on March 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
My wait is over. I ordered this little contraption after reading a very thorough, enlightening review. I had some reservations based on some negative reviews I read through, but I wanted a cotton candy machine for my daughter’s birthday party. It was only forty bucks so I took a chance. Guess what? This little machine will do JUUUUST fine.

The trick is completely heat the elements before putting the candy/sugar in. (I used floss sugar three times tonight. I still need to experiment with candy.)The booklet said to heat it for at least five minutes if using candy and ten minutes if using sugar. I turned it on and let this baby heat for a full 15 minutes. I poured in a tablespoon of the sugar and quickly turned it back on. Within a couple of minutes, the floss began to fly. Paper cones seem to stick to the candy a bit better than the plastic cones that came with the machine, but it’s still nice to have reusable cones!

Granted, my cones weren’t masterpieces,(one even came out looking like “Judy Jetson’s hairdo”) but believe me, I got a GOOD amount of cotton candy out of one serving of floss. I took pictures and will hopefully add them to my review when I have more time. If you don’t rush the heating time and be patient, you will get a big, fluffy ball. The candy was the perfect consistency. After taking a bite, my husband looked at me with adoration in his eyes and told me he loved me. Oh yes.

Each batch came out perfectly and they didn’t take long to make. Our new little kitchen gadget is a hit, so far. It produces fluffy happiness and love.

If you are considering a machine like this for home use, I highly recommend it.

UPDATE:

Well, it’s the second night of owning this machine and we need practice making cones. (That’s our excuse, anyway!) So, we had another fun time making huge, fluffy cones to eat. We made several more out of floss sugar, which turned out as beautiful as the previous batches. We tried a couple of peppermint candies as the last batch. OH my goodness, it was delicious! We still had better results with the floss sugar, but only in the quantity and “fluffy factor.” The candies made less and were a bit more brittle than the what the sugar floss produced, but it was still very, very good tasting. I have downloaded a couple of pictures using my subpar laptop, so I hope they turn out okay! Thanks for reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great small cotton candy machine!
By Dana Kiederlen on August 1, 2017
Verified Purchase
First off, this small little machine packs a big punch! It is super cute and very easy to use. After experimenting with many different hard candies, we found that dum-dum suckers, of course smashed, work the best. With one or two suckers you can make a decent amount for one person. When using hard candies, put one in at a time. Doing this, actually makes more and fluffier cotton candy. Also, warming up the machine up for 10 minutes or more in advance, makes the cotton candy making go a whole lot smoother. Combining flavors and experimenting is really fun and a delicious result in a little amount of time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Assembles and disassembles perfectly, works like a dream..
By Lee E. Walkowski on March 11, 2018
Verified Purchase
I wish it came with more cones. Other than that, it was easily assembled and disassembled, and works like a dream, though there’s a learning curve to making cotton candy stick to the cones right. Even heavily textured, the plastic cones provided were hard to coat. I recommend buying paper cones. Also, the area to roll up cotton candy is small, be careful to not hit the sugar hopper.

It turns any hard candy or flavored sugar into cotton candy, though I highly recommend butterscotch candies for a most delicious twist.

I’d give it a 5 if it had more cones and they worked better with the machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge hit at my daughter’s birthday party
By WangA Top Contributor: Baby on February 5, 2018
Verified Purchase
This was a great way for kids and parents to be entertained without having to have someone perform. You have to let it heat up for 10-15 minutes (like the instructions suggest), then turn it off, then put the sugar in…then it might take another 5-10 minutes for the wisps of candy floss to start to form. Also, don’t stick the sticks vertically in…they need to be waved horizontally (again, this is in the instructions). This thing was on for like 3 hours, with brief pauses in between, and it kept working. I think it was a great buy. I honestly expected it to break down halfway through my party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot air type that takes 4 minutes to heat up for a small cone
By CobraJ on August 4, 2017
Verified Purchase
I had a Cotton Candy machine as a kid in the 60s and saw this one for my granddaughters. It works by hot air and not by a direct hot coil as the one from my youth. This new one does take some time to heat up and only makes small cones. This does clean up fast so that is a big plus over the old type. My girls liked it and enjoyed making some before they turned it over to me as a job to keep them supplied. I do wish that it would make bigger cones. This does not come with any sugar or candy so have some on hand when the kids see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let machine heat 45-60 minutes and get clouds of cotton candy
By Amazon Customer on December 25, 2017
Verified Purchase
I followed the advice from one of the video uploads and left the machine to heat 45-60 minutes and I get amazing light, fluffy cotton candy.
Paper cones work better than the reusable plastic included. Holding the cone horizontal and rotating slowly works best.
Can use to make ahead in large quantities, takes about 5-7 minutes per cone otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Far So Good
By MOM OF 3 Top Contributor: Baking on July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
So far so good. This machine works with everything I tried so far: colored infused regular store bought granulated sugar, the nostalgia flossing sugar, hard candy (crushed and whole)- Life Savers, Jolly Ranchers, colored starlight flavored candy… So far I made about 15-20 cotton candy treats. The directions are spot on! Let the machine run at least 8 minutes before adding sugar or candy. After running the machine for 8 minutes (sometimes I only ran it for 5 minutes) turn it off add your candy or sugar and then turn it back on immediately and get ready for some delicious fluff. Yes the hard candy version of cotton candy comes out a bit different from the granulated sugar and floss sugar but trust me it is DELICIOUS! I’ll add more to this posting after 2 months of continuous use.

3.0 out of 5 stars PROS AND CONS!
By CRAVE on May 27, 2015
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
There are pros and cons to this machine. It’s important to remember it was only a $50 item. If you follow the instructions and only put in one scoop of floss sugar it yields a very disappointing and tiny amount of cotton candy. I fill the area with probably 2-3 scoops of floss. I also make sure I hold my funnel right above the machine and rotate it round and round. The cotton candy sticks a lot better this way. Just as the picture shows. Do not have the funnel down inside the plastic dome scrapping the sides and do not hold it upright. The machine is quite loud and it moves around and vibrates on my counter. We had to place it on a towel so it didn’t move itself onto the floor. But overall, it does make good cotton candy, the kids are happy, and it’s going to be fun for my daughters carnival birthday party. Would I spend $50 for this machine….probably!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool device, easy to setup
By Brian on January 1, 2017
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
Cool device, easy to setup. I gave a 4 because it could use a bit of a bitter housing as you cant let much cotton candy build up else it gets pulled around. If you want to make a lot this device will take awhile, so good for small amounts if you wanted to make 10-12 for a party it would take quite a long time as you can only put 1 scoop of sugar per usage which seems to make 1-2

Also it did not come with any sugar which is crazy at least a small sample pack should come with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price!
By Mfamily on December 27, 2014
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my daughter that loves cotton candy (she’s the only one in the house that likes it). I was hesitant to try the hard candy after reading reviews so I ordered floss sugar. I made her first batch and as usual, she liked but I thought it was nasty (only bc I just don’t care for it in general). I found it easy to use and easy to clean. I shared a pic of them using it on FB and I had one friend say she had the same machine and loves it and another ask if I used hard candy. This prompted me to do a little more research on the “hard candy” technique. I read one very helpful review that advised using one hard candy (crushed) and placing it in the scooper, then adding regular granulated sugar to fill the rest of the scooper. We decided to send dad out for some lifesavers and jolly ranchers. Turns out, I guess I DO like cotton candy after all. You’re not going to get a big fluff ball with this machine but if you add the your first fluff ball on a second go ’round, you should have a decent candy ball. I’m pretty impressed with this machine considering the price. The only downfall would be tiny strands of webs flying around when you are close to finishing all the sugar in the spinner. Other than that, it’s GREAT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
By SAMMSquad on January 12, 2017
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
I have mixed feelings about this and hope it’s due to a learning curve. Perhaps I had too high of expectations? The cotton candy is fluffy and yummy, so that’s not a problem. To make a decent sized bunch, I have to go through the process at least two times, which is slightly annoying. My biggest issue is that a string might fall off or not stick well, causing it to harden quickly. (The opening doesn’t seem wide enough. )

I found it easy to clean, but also realized that if tilted, a sticky goo dripped out onto my counter. Perhaps that’s a user fail, lol. Overall, easy to take apart and clean.

3.0 out of 5 stars Makes good candy, but so slow
By Tester 140 on February 23, 2018
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
I really wanted this to be a five star product, but the reality is, three is the best it can do. We bought this for my daughter‘s birthday party because she requested it and was having three friends over for a sleepover. My goal was to make enough cotton candy for the four of them plus my two boys. In order to do this, I started warming up the machine at least an hour before we were going to serve the cotton candy. The instructions will tell you to warm it up for 10 to 15 minutes. I found the machine to be more effective if it was allowed to warm up longer. After a good 20 or 25 minute warm-up., I turned off the machine just long enough to add flossing sugar and then turned it right back on. Cotton candy began forming on the outsides of the ring almost immediately but was only really enough to do a small stick of cotton candy. I turned it off, added more sugar, and turned it right back on, but this time got even less. I think this is because the dish for the candy is so small that when the flossing sugar is placed into the center spinner, it has the effect of cooling the metal before all has melted. You pour in flossing sugar, start the machine, the sugar melts, the sugar on the bottom of the spinner closest to the heating element will immediately floss while the melted sugar at the top of the spinner will harden and stay stuck inside of the spinner. The heating element is only operational when the device is turned on and the spinner is spinning. This means that it is not possible to add candy without losing heat. With each addition of flossing sugar, the accumulated candy inside the spinner increased until there was no room for additional flossing sugar inside the center spinner. At that point, the only choice was to leave the machine On for an extended period of time so that the entire spinner would eventually heat up, remelt the candy on the inside, and floss it out into the ring. The problem is, this remelted candy does not floss as cleanly and it results in large accumulations of hardened candy on the outsides of the ring.The good news is, you can chip these off and put them back in the spinner to re-attempt flossing. The bad news is this will put the spinner out of balance causing the machine to vibrate. I found that you had to just let it vibrate for a while and allow it to be held in place by the suction cups underneath it until the candy melted and the spinner was clear. All in all, we probably ran the machine for about two hours straight in order to get 6 to 8 mini basketball sized portions of cotton candy. Happy we could make the candy for my daughter but not satisfied with the speed and inefficiency of this machine

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Machine!
By Ashley Conley on June 23, 2014
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
I held off writing this review until I had the cotton candy machine for a while. I’ve had it for a few months now and the machine is still working great! I’m perfectly pleased with it. I make sure I clean it properly, as described in the manual, after each use, and I haven’t experienced any issues with it. I saw other reviews when I was considering buying it warning that the machine stopping working after a while, and it *could* be that those machines weren’t being cleaned properly. The part where the flossugar comes out is VERY small (it has to be so that only the melted sugar comes out, not whole granules), so if you neglect to clean it and let anything build up in there, it probably would stop it working properly. However, take care of the machine as you’re supposed to and it should continue working for you as it’s supposed to! 😀

A few tips on operating:

1. Have patience! As other reviews have stated, yes, it IS slow. This is a smaller model, it can only heat up and spin the sugar so fast, so you will have to have a bit of patience. You’re not going to produce mass quantities in a small amount of time, but for what it’s designed for (small, personal use) it’s perfect!

2. Take the instructions rule to let it warm up first seriously. If you don’t let it warm up it’ll just take even longer to start making the flossugar into cotton candy, so again, see tip #1.

3. On occasion when I’m making the cotton candy it stops shooting it out but I can see there’s more in it. I think this happens because the force of the spinning holds a lot of the sugar fairly high in the machine. When this happens I flip it off for a second and after it stops spinning I knock the sugar back down and turn it back on. It only takes a second and usually speeds up the cotton candy process!

4. If you’re using hard candies, yes you *can* just stick the whole candy in there. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, it’ll come out better if you mix in some regular sugar to soften it up. To that end, I recommend crushing the candy if you can and premixing it with a little extra sugar. I find that the cotton candy comes out not only smoother but faster than waiting for the whole solid candy to melt 😀

Again, I highly recommend this product! I’ve been having a delicious blast with it ^_^

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well
By p4killer on November 5, 2016
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
Pretty Solid – Works well – Made 3-4 full cones within 10 minutes of opening box.

Were gonna use this to make wedding favors

Couple tips if you plan to mass produce:

Have your candy or sugar melted to semi melted already. This means tempering which is obvi tedious, but if using sugar you can get away with a bowl of hot water to heat the bowl holding the sugar.

This way you can pour the liquid sugar into the spinner and therefore wont have to wait for this device to heat it. Ala fast cotton candy production

Also no need to swirl inside the bowl just hold directly above the head horizontally and rotate akin to roast a hot dog on a campfire

Scrape the bowl and respin the residual stuff for a quick extra 10% cotton.

Cleaning :

All is standard, beside the head can harbor candy along the inner seam. Run directly under hot water while rotating for a few minutes. Wipe the rest out and dry.

By Adam T. on April 6, 2016
Size: Nostalgia PCM805RETRORED Retro Hard & Sugar-Free C | Verified Purchase
This is way better than some of the things you can buy from CrayZart and similar places. I would place it somewhere on the high end in between the aforementioned lackluster performers and a professional machine, Cleanup is super easy and the cotton candy looks legit if you are using flossing sugar. I’ve never tried it with crushed up hard candy but it claims to work on that as well.

One note of caution. I wouldn’t let a kid use this unsupervised because there is a red-hot heating element and a rapidly spinning disk (which is also hot). With the help of an adult though this can be fun for the whole family.

Bought this for my husband for Christmas, and he loves it. We made a couple batches of Cotton Candy and were pleased…tasted JUST like the stuff you buy at the fair. Please be warned, it makes small batch of cotton candy…perfect for one or two people. Also, please follow the instructions in the booklet and let it heat up for the time stated in the instruction booklet, otherwise the sugar will not melt and spin like it should.We also picked up some peppermint discs, as the instructions said could be done. Have you ever had peppermint cotton candy? YUM….my new favorite!

Fun little gadget for the kitchen. Very happy with the purchase and the quality of the machine.

My son really wanted this for his birthday so I gave in and let him get it with his birthday money. He loves it and all the neighborhood kids do too! It only uses two candies or 1 tsp of sugar so I don’t feel guilty letting them make their own treats. I suggest buying the paper cones and cotton candy sugar to go along with it. The only candy he tried it with so far was sour warheads and they worked great. It looks nice and sturdy and was easy to clean.
