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.

    This is an awesome maching from Carnival King. We've had one minor issue after a year, which is the rubber band that connects the motor to the spinner. It was in one of big trucks that rattles quite a bit and we think ti came off then. Otherwise, its a great machine and easy to clean and maintain.

    I would like to thank Webrestaurant for their excellent cotton candy machine. We are satisfied and our customers too. We used it several times this summer and it is still in good condition.

    My Carnival King got a bit beat up in shipping, including a broken piece on the head. But the WebstaurantStore immediately shipped me a replacement head to get me ready for our first concession night! No questions asked! Most places would just tell you to contact FedEx or UPS. The bowl also took some abuse during shipment, but the small dents it has don’t affect the function at all.

    Has continued to hold up well. We use this every single day for about 10-20 bags and have yet ot have any issues with the cotton candy quality

    The first time I used the machine it worked GREAT! Just like the ad said, 2 cones a minute. Now the 2nd time I used it, it takes 5 minutes to make one small cone. I have tried to clean it. I have asked the company several times if I can remove the spinner head to clean it, but with the only response was look on page 3 of your manual. Can anyone offer any advice to me. I loved my machine the 1st time, but now I can't use it.
    Thank you for the review, Suella. We're sorry this isn't working for you. We recommend letting the unit cool down after an hour of operation to keep it working properly. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you to make sure this is resolved.

    I bought this machine about a month ago, it worked great and all off a sudden it will not heat any more so I cannot make any more cotton candy, I like machine, it is quite and did work great. I just have no idea on how to get this fixed, there is no customer service number and been trying to figure something out for a week now. The machine is great when it works, the customer service not so much.

    Was looking for a cotton candy machine to use at many of our family functions and small events. While I did a little research I admit I didn't spend hours or days researching machines. One link for machines sent me to WebstaurantStore, which I've purchased equipment from in the past and have been very satisfied with their service. The Carnival King CCM28 had decent reviews and seemed "commercial" enough for what I wanted to do. After placing the order WebstaurantStore shipped quickly with me receiving the machine in two days. I ordered the plastic dome which did not arrive yet, but after using the machine I'm not convinced you absolutely need it. Knowing nothing about making cotton candy, and being a little frightened by some of the posts saying it sprayed sugar all over the place or was too difficult to use I was surprised at how easy it actually was. I let the machine heat up for a couple of minutes as the directions indicate to do, poured a scoop full of flossugar into the head and within moments I could see the cotton candy begin floating up out of the head. The floss candy comes almost straight up out of the head and was easy to attach to the cone. I just kept spinning the cone until I didn't see anymore floss coming out of the head. By the third cone we were making good looking cotton candy. It is not a dense cotton candy and is made up of thin floss (which may depend on the type of sugar used, like I said, I didn't research it a lot). It comes with a scoop and one scoop full of flossugar makes one cone, so you have to dump sugar in each time you want to make a cone, but it makes a cone very quickly. Overall I am very happy with the purchase. While the machine was running it was very stable with very little vibration, no more than I'd expect for a spinning item. While I have no idea how long it will last, it seems to be built well enough to suit what I need it for. . Read Less Read More

    I started my cotton machine shopping about 2 weeks ago. I shopped several on line sites and found prices ranging from $40 to $2,000. I decided to buy the CCM28. I liked the concept of the large bowl. Many of the listing had the word "commercial" in it. My vision of commercial is something you see at a fair or carnival. Massive amounts of candy forming around the bowl. The CCM28 does NOT shoot cotton candy around the bowl. The draft that cools the cotton candy comes from three fan blades mounted on the side of the floss head. This blows the cotton candy up. If you don't use a cone, it will feed itself back into the floss head. It makes a fair amount of cotton candy. The cotton candy cones made by this machine aren't very dense., your winding up a smaller web /stream . vs a thick accumulation in the bowl.. I just read the other customer reviews on this site. People are more compelled to write a review when they have an issue. I ended up returning the unit, I wasn't happy with the quality of the floss head. It wobbled in my opinion. The capacity of sugar in the floss head is about 1 cone. The machine costing in the $200 range come with a floss head similar to the CCM28. There is "cover" that screwed onto the floss head. It provides a small gap that the molten sugar flows out of. On the more expensive units there is a "screen" that allow more sugar to flow out and it results in faster accumulations.

    We appreciate your review, David. We wish this Carnival King CCM28 Cotton Candy Machine with 28 inch Stainless Steel Bowl - 110V would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    We use this for our downtown events. This is a great hit and we end up with lines out the door. Would like to find local organic floss for it though.
    Used this machine one time and it worked. Second time the machine turned on for a few seconds and it quit working. Fuse was good. Tired other outlets. Looked online to troubleshoot only to find nothing. Went back to read reviews and several customers had similar experiences. Warranty has expired. Online chat advised me I may have bent something on the machine or I may need to plug in another outlet. I asked since there were several complaints was there any way to troubleshoot ? I dont mind getting a new part but I have no idea what part may be needed. HELP??
    Thank you for your review, Rachel! We are sorry this Carnival King CCM28 Cotton Candy Machine with 28 inch Stainless Steel Bowl - 110V has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    This is a very nice machine that produces rapidly. However, it is very cumbersome when it comes to cleaning since it recommend you turn the machine off every hour for 15 to 20 minutes. It recommend that you clean the flosshead every time which is a bit of a chore since you are supposed to take the machine apart. However, it does make beautiful candy floss! I use it to make cotton candy flowers ?
    I bought this item for my company to do a Graduation Party. It works great. Only issue I had was it got a little windy outside so had hard time making the candy, However I put the dome on top of it and it worked perfectly. Also used for a Garage Party and Didn't have any issues. I had a hard time keeping up with the Machine. (was in a garage so no wind)
