Originally bought the tabletop Nostalgic for less than $50. Product should not be on the market -- no cotton candy after trying for 45 minutes. Then, I saw this Nostalgic cotton candy machine cart and read the mostly positive reviews. I ordered it and am not disappointed. Yaayyy to a no-fat dessert whenever the mood strikes. This machine should not be considered "commercial" as it is definitely more of a family/home machine. I would love it if this could be made into a counter/table top item vs. a cart, though.
--Cotton candy started spinning out almost immediately.
--Good amount of cotton candy on cone
--Easy to use and clean
--Came with 2 packages of pink vanilla floss and 2 pkgs of blue raspberry floss; paper cones
--All tools for assembly provided
--Though it is a cart, doesn't really take up that much space, especially if you leave off the cone holder attachment
--2 spare fuses provided
--Great price in comparison to other cotton candy machines
--Terrible, awful, horrible directions for assembly. Incomplete information! The worst I have ever seen.
-- Not all bolts fit properly as some of the holes were too small (and, yes, I used the correct bolt) There were enough bolts that did fit O.K., so machine is stable, however, I wouldn't feel comfortable rolling it around here and there.
--A couple of springs were included, which I have no idea where they should go! I also had some left over bolts and screws.
--Some smoking when using it, though not enough to set off any smoke alarms.
--A fair amount of sugar doesn't get spun and ends up wasted and scattered inside the bowl.
