Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the best way to “catch” the cotton candy while it’s being made?
This particular item can produce up to two cones per minute, and does so by streaming the floss right through the top of the spinner head. You will need to catch it with the cotton candy cones as it comes out of the top of the spinner. For added convenience, the Carnival King Floss Bubble (sold separately) features a wide cutout that better directs the floss for easy serving and will also protect against germs and airborne debris.

    We ordered this machine over 1 year now and I must say it is showing no signs of slowing down! especially after constant use in our business. I would confidently recommend this item to anyone seeking a commercial cotton candy machine! Thanks.

    Very easy to use, so happy it came with the plastic grate and clips. Without those i don't think this product would work nearly as well.
    I own a small candy company and primarily focused on artisan nuts, chocolates, and candies, most of which appealed to the more mature audience with very little to offer the young people. To remedy that I added lollipops, but was looking for something else that might appeal to the younger crowd which is why I decided cotton candy. I purchased this one less than a week ago; I assembled it myself with very little in the way of instructions while my husband watched TV from his recliner; it was breezy easy to do! Within the hour I had made a pile of cotton candy and having a ball doing it. My dome hadn't arrived yet, so I came away with sticky hair and a layer of sugar on the nearby counter top and had to mop the floors too, but it didn't stop me from making more. My dome arrived yesterday afternoon, so I'll give that a try and see if we can keep the mess to a minimum. Even if I never sell a single cone of cotton candy, I wear the biggest grin while making this stuff -- all my friends and their kids love to see me coming! Read Less Read More
    Very beautiful machine for small business, as expected, very well packed and works just fine! Its a cute machine for caterings and small businesses . Good brand
    This 21" stainless steel Carnival's King cotton candy machines and cart is a really good money maker. I've seen them at different events and I decided that I have to get one for this coming year's events.
    This is the second unit we purchased about 2 years ago. It’s been working great so far even with use multiple times a week. The machine is easy to clean and the wheels allows for easy transporting or moving within the facility. The price point was the biggest selling point for us.
    This cotton candy machine from carnival king is a great purchase if you are looking to start up a cotton candy business for parties. This cart and really easy to move.
    Phenomenal product. I did lots of research before deciding on this, and it is perfect for what it needs to be. I can't imagine choosing anything else. Great for local fairs and for hosting non-profit events.
    Purchased this for my business and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Adults and kids alike rave about the fresh, light cotton candy. Word of advice, purchase the dome or you’ll have cotton candy all in your hair. Kids like to watch and when pouring floss sugar without the dome it’ll get in their eyes.
    Love, Love, Love, the Carnival King Cotton Candy Machine ! I purchased for my sons carnival bday party and I love that it can be used commercially too.
    The best machine by far! Not to big not to small and it comes with a stand so you don’t have to worry about finding a table to prop it on.
    This cotton candy machine is extremely affordable and works wonderfully for making great cotton candy with. Bought this to make cotton candy at birthday parties and people love it! The cart is very easy to move around.
    You cannot find a better looking and preforming machine for this price. It's a amazing deal with the output and ease of operation you will make your investment back in no time. Great vintage and eye catching design and cart for adding mobility makes this 5/5! My rental business is soaring thanks to this machine!

    This machine is fantastic! It works great. This is not our first one of these... they are long lasting and put out the cotton candy fast. Very easy to use
    We have had 4 of these machines and we always buy this same one because it is reliable, easy to use, and puts out cotton candy at a good speed. The cart can be a pain to put together but, that's expected with most items you have to assemble. Just best to have 2 people when putting the cart together
