There are many different features to look for when buying a cotton candy machine. For instance, you may want to consider a machine with a 950-watt heating element and a belt-driven motor. It should also come with two reusable plastic cones for easy cleaning.
Nostalgia Electrics Retro hard Candy Maker
The Nostalgia Electrics Retro Hard and Sugar Free Candy Maker is an excellent way to make a variety of delicious treats for your family and friends. It accepts hard candy and flossing sugar and is compatible with the Nostalgia Cotton Candy Kits. This retro-styled appliance is easy to use and comes with 2 reusable cones, an extractor head, and sugar scoop.
950-Watt Heating Element
A cotton candy maker with a 950-watt heating element is ideal for making a large variety of sweets quickly. It has two switches to control the power and heat. Whether you’re using sugar floss or hard candies, the machine is simple to operate and comes with an easy-to-clean bowl. Some models include a drawer to store floss sugar, spare cones, and other supplies.
Make Candy Cones in per Minute
A commercial cotton candy machine can make two to three candy cones per minute. A powerful motor produces enough heat to quickly melt sugar for the perfect cotton candy. Stainless steel bowls and a belt-driven motor ensure a smooth process. The bowl can be easily removed for cleaning and comes with a large sugar scoop for easy sugar mixing.
Commercial Cotton Candy Machines
Commercial cotton candy machines have large bowls and high performance belt drives. They can make multiple candy flosses in a minute, making them ideal for both small and large fundraiser parties. Before using your commercial cotton candy machine, it’s important to warm it for at least 5 minutes. Then, you can add sugar powder and hard candy bits.
A belt-driven motor is the heart of a cotton candy machine. It provides mechanical power for spinning the large bowl at a high speed. In addition, the machine features a heater to keep the sugar at the proper temperature. The combination of high speed rotation and the heating element produces cotton candy with a thin thread. Some machines feature a cone that collects the sugar mesh from the interior walls of the large bowl. Another feature of a commercial cotton candy machine is the large size; a cotton candy machine with a large bowl can create colossal candy floss.
Some Machines use an Electric Motor
Some machines use an electric motor to produce cotton candy. The commercial-grade model can create two to three candy cones per minute. It features a powerful motor that generates up to 1030 watts. The machine’s stainless steel bowl is also removable, which makes cleanup easy. It also features a large sugar scoop, which lets you prepare several floss sugars at once without having to wash any bowls.
Two Reusable Plastic Cones
When shopping for a cotton candy machine, consider the type of candy that you’d like to make. Some of these can be made from hard candies, while others can only be made from sugar. Either way, you’ll need a plastic lid, sugar scoop, and wooden cones. These can be purchased separately, as well, or you can buy a kit that includes them.
Read the Instructions Carefully
Make sure to read the instructions carefully before using your machine. When the machine reaches its maximum heat, the sugar will run out. The cotton candy that’s produced will be white and burned. Once this happens, turn off the machine and let it run without heat for a minute or two.
Machine comes with a Sugar Scoop
The Nostalgia Electrics cotton candy machine comes with a sugar scoop. When the sugar is put in, the cone will spin and release the cotton candy. Make sure not to touch the center of the cone, as that may cause damage.
