    I read a lot of reviews before deciding to make the purchase. I felt the the reviews that were positive all had the same underlying information... Follow the directions and be patient. That being said we tried first with 2 jolly ranchers and for the first try I was a little nervous, however I decided before going further to watch some great utube demonstrations. We gave it a try with regular sugar next and what a difference, big and fluffy, so I was thrilled. I went to a party rental supplier and picked up a package of the floss sugar much cheaper than all the prices I saw online. I am very pleased, the party was a hit and we will defiantly be using ours often..

    Ok I was going to buy one of the jelly belly cotton candy machine. But we're out of stock so got this one. I made some and first batch was tasting weird like burnt but looked fine. They use some kind of glue or cocking that when it heats up it melts and looks like gum. Gross!!!!!!!!

    It wasn't that bad. It did make cotton candy. But the work you had to put into it didn't justify the outcome. For a tablespoon of sugar about half of it ends up coated to the sides of the dish and reformed back into granulated sugar. The cotton candy that you do get is a little deceiving. It looks like a good bit, but it's just extra fluffy and not tightly packed as i was used to. Mine stopped working correctly. About the first 5-8 times we used it it was fine.Then it would stop putting out cotton candy half way through, then kick back up and finish. Last it started making a terrible racket and the cotton candy would only come out the top of the spinner. Before i get hate mail let me say, YES, i did properly soak and clean all the parts as i was supposed to, let it dry completely, and use it as was described in the instruction manual. With that being said, It wasn't the worst product i have ever tried. Worst cotton candy machine i could have probly gotten though. I will be shelling out a few more pennies for a much better model in the future.

    This cotton candy machine looks pretty much exactly like the picture, when you get it out of the box. The machine is also light weighted. And if you're wondering, no the wheels cannot spin, it is just a decoration. The motor itself is pretty small, so it will take about 5+ minutes to heat up. But once it is heated up, and you put the sugar in it, it will almost immedietly start making cotton candy, though it will take about 10+ minutes to make one about the size of your head, so it takes a long time to make one. The only problem I have on this, is that the sugar burns a bit, and is hard to get off of the extractor head. So I would suggest that you have a wet cloth/paper towel beside you, so that you can clean the burnt sugar off. I have tried using Jolly Ranchers (hard candy), and it comes out great! It tastes the exact same as when you have one in your mouth. I have also tried using plain sugar, and personally, I think that it tastes much better, as it has the cotton candy taste. You could also try using flossing sugar. I would not really recommend this machine for big parties though, unless everyone is patient. But if it was for fun, then I would deffinately recommend this. Kids, (and your inner kidself) will really love this.

    Got this for my son and it works great! I got the sugar that is for this machine and we had NO issues. You turn it on, let it heat up for 10 minutes, turn it off and put NO more than the little scooper in, turn it back on and within seconds you've got cotton candy. We made 10 batches with NO issues. We absolutely love this machine. I am guessing the people that gave it low stars didn't do everything correctly and they are the ones who messed it all up. It's simple to use if you follow directions correctly. I will most definitely recommend this to my friends!

    • A. We used regular sugar and it came out great. We also used regular hard candies bought at the local dollar store and also tried some sugar free hard candies. They all worked well. The only one we had any problems with so far is the hard caramels.

    • A. it uses cotton candy sugar or hard candies like jolly ranchers. I tried them both and was a little disappointed with this machine, but the PCM-805 model which is $35 was way better, and made a lot more candy and a lot less noise.

    • A. Not sure if you can use just "regular sugar" we used flossing sugar that you can buy in the packs. But I do know that you can use hand candy in this machine. My stepsons used peppermint hard candy and hard carmel candies and it was great! Okay I went through and read about the sugar and all it says is add one tablespoon of favored sugar. Does not say anything about any special sugar that needs to be used. I do know that I bought the flavored sugar and it is the consistency of regular table sugar, I hope this helps.
