This should be no stars, but it's not an option. I ordered this after customer service said it was shipping from 2 states away, and I needed it quick. When it eventually shipped it was literally from the opposite coast. When it arrived it was dented in several places. When I plugged it in, it blew a fuse. When I eventually got it plugged into another outlet, nothing spun and sugar started bubbling out of the screws.

First and last Carnival King product. There are 9 positive reviews of this product from owners who have just received their machines and are still dazzled by the newness. I, however, have the opportunity to review this product after a few months of ownership and have discovered that Carnival King has abysmal customer service post-sale. I cannot get a replacement head for this machine. Direct contact with the company has yielded no luck. Their excuse: Sorry, we don't sell directly to consumers. After contacting Webstaurant Store and their other distributor, lo and behold, there is no availability at all, while they continue to sell the unit with...you guessed it...a spinning head. In closing, I would not recommend this company if you operate on a commercial basis. You will be sorry when you are missing out on $$ while your machine sits idle for want of a critical part.

Machine worked great....for 2 days. then shut down and has not worked since. cannot call the customer service line as there is no number on the website. have been waiting for a week for them to contact me. bottom line the machine is not worth the hassle. I plan on finding a better one
Nathan H. from pasghettis Posted on 03/05/2018
Loved it huge hit at outdoor pool party. I couldn't keep the line down. It is well worth the investment! Guests didn't believe I owned my own cotton candy machine. Definitely a crowd pleaser! It is always a huge party favorite Adrienne
Adrienne G. Posted on 06/05/2016
This thing is awesome we bought it to bring it to the school for fundraisers and we're just going to give it to you it was on sale for a great price so I couldn't pass it up fantastic deal works great
Mike R. from N/A Posted on 01/20/2017
If this has a temperature control this device would have been great, but it doesn't. The sugar will burn easily and my only option is to remove the bolts and spend days using a dremal and sand paper to remove the tar. This then leads to further damage to the machine. My advice to some one looking for a machine so for a high end model with temp control and only use Gold medal floss brand.
Paige Posted on 11/13/2016
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.
Suella D. from Shelly Kent Posted on 06/05/2016
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.
Michael L. from Launch Trampoline Park Posted on 04/26/2018
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.
David B. Posted on 02/15/2018
All clips broke loose second use. After adding bubble, sugar flys everywhere and can't make a nice cone. Can't figure out why it all the sudden is throwing sugar all over. Frustrated since there is no one to call and a poorly written manual. Giving up on this venture. Cannot be used indoors without the bubble, overall would suggest a different machine.
Kimberly B. from Tasty Mayhem Posted on 06/03/2017
BEST investment ever. This cotton candy machine is easy to clean and assemble. Not incredibly heavy and has been a fabulous fundraising took for our non profit charity. So much so, I just purchased an additional machine.
Care f. from Care for Kids, Inc Posted on 04/04/2016
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.
Pierre-André V. from LSBK Posted on 10/08/2018
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.
Kelly P. Posted on 09/29/2018
The cotton candy machine was easy to use even for a 5 year old. I would suggest getting the bubble because the crystals do get everywhere.
John J. Posted on 08/04/2018
This cotton candy machine works great. The machine heats up quickly and is very easy to use. Great for company parties, fund raising events. Would highly recommend to businesses
Dawn M. Posted on 05/07/2018
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
Jessica Q. Posted on 04/30/2018
I have a rental business. I rental these units out to customers. perviously to owning these units I owned Econo Boss by Gold Metal. Carnival King is easier to clean, more durable, and far less expensive
Mark V. Posted on 04/24/2018
Best consession stand there is! Makes best cotton candy would recommend to anyone that wants awesome cotton candy. A+ would buy again. Very happy with this purchase
Kevin S. Posted on 04/16/2018
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. .
Jim M. from Jim M., Michigan Posted on 04/02/2018
I started out renting a cotton candy machine and was impressed by the quality and fun I had. as a result I purchased this model. I've used it twice since receiving it this week and have had no issues. I recommend this product!
Shawn N. Posted on 03/17/2018
This is a professional unit! The product is sturdy and is professionally built. It can make a ton of cotton candy. Great product, arrived on time
Herman H. from In-stock supply inc Posted on 02/22/2018
Ordered online was seamless on 2/5 with an estimated delivery date of 2/14, received the items on 2/6!!! From unboxing, to cleaning it (wiping with damp cloth) so I know it’s clean :) to putting it together and actually having the beautifully made fluffy, delicious and happy kids cotton candy eating was a total of 20 minutes!!! We cannot wait to have it for birthdays and all gatherings ... thank you!!!
Yuttie Z. Posted on 02/08/2018
Awesome machine. Makes great cotton candy. We have used it every day since purchase and have not had one single hiccup in operation. Would recommend.
Logan S. Posted on 09/23/2017
Ordered this just 1 month ago and, as many have specified, the latch tack welds on the pan are very weak. We've only used it 3 times and the 3rd time we noticed a heavy vibration. The tack welds on one of the clips had broke off and cause the others to start breaking and flexing.
Christine S. from Scoops LLC Posted on 09/05/2017
This is a good option for a mid priced cotton candy machine. Not as stout as they can be, but it also doesn't come with the price tag that goes with it. If you aren't too rough with this machine, it will last for a long time. Easy to use.
Jessica A. from Bb Posted on 07/25/2017
I read several reviews and decided to purchase the Carnival King CCM28 Cotton Candy Machine. I LOVE it! i will be buying a 2nd and possibly 3rd machine for my company. When i do it will be CCM28's. The size is perfect for commercial use! The cotton candy turns out perfect! It is fairly easy to clean, and easy to store.
Cyndee J. from CJ's Cotton Candy Posted on 07/18/2017
Hi very nice piece of equipment here ! I would recommend it to all my friends and family ! Excellent product to own ! Makes cotton candy !
Jack h. from Jack hermiz Posted on 07/07/2017
This machine will not disappoint! After letting it run for 15 mins to warm up, you quickly dump in a scoop of sugar and POOF! Cotton candy will rapidly shoot up into a fluffy cloud above the head. I use wooden sticks rather than paper cones, to collect the fluff. I hold the stick very close as I dump in the sugar and can quickly spin the fluff into a perfect ball shape. Cleaning the bowl, though it is awkward to do so, is still a snap. Hot water and a teeny bit of soap are all you need to get the bowl shiny again! I will say that I bought this machine and after about 3 hours of use the heating went out, the sugar would just sit in the head and end up burning before fluffing out but Webstaurant pulled through and a new machine is on it's way. Very little trouble and amazing customer service
Catherine F. Posted on 06/29/2017
The machine works great, however the four clips that are attached to the bottom of the stainless steel bowl are horrible! The clips were attached to the bowl with three welds each. Within a year the first clip feel off, now the second one on the same side. The design of the bowl is flawed and now within a year we have to replace the unit.
Herbert R. from H & M Party Rentals, LLC Posted on 06/10/2017
Worked great the first time we used it a week ago, made about 100 cone. Went to use it today, made maybe 20 cones and it started sparking and spitting electrical wire out. Would not recommend for commercial use.
Mary C. from Carter Family Creations Posted on 06/10/2017
Amazing design my whole family loves it. Great for entertaining kids at parties! At first I thought it was a little pricy but it is great!
Carol B. Posted on 05/17/2017
I love my machine. I have no problems with it at all. I was surprised that the Cotton is spun straight out of the top instead of the sides.
Rejeana &. from Mickem Concessions Posted on 05/12/2017
The machine runs very quiet, which was a concern of mine because I am using it in a public place. After the machine initially heats up, the candy comes out very quickly. I was researching different techniques and I finally settled on one that works best for me. I turn off the machine before I add the sugar. I add one scoop via the scoop that is supplied with the machine. That single scoop will make one serving the size of a human head. I find doing it one serving at a time eliminates most waste. Transitioning from one cone to another can get a little messy, so I do one serving at a time. Once i have the scoop poured into the heating head and the machine powered on, I use a cone to collect the candy. I do this by spinning the cone in my finger counter-clockwise, while running the cone around the bowl in a clockwise motion. In my practice this gave the most presentable looking cones.
David L. from Kidswear Posted on 05/12/2017
This cotton candy machine works like a charm. It is light and dependable. Love it and plan to order several more of these for more events!
Teneal I. Posted on 05/02/2017
Do not buy from this website! I received not one but TWO broken machines. I needed this for a party and ordered it two weeks before the party date. I recieved it a week later with broken pieces. Frustrated, I contacted webstaurant and they were willing to send me a new one. I needed the machine by that Saturday but they didn't do anything to get it to me by then. I didn't receive the new machine till the Tuesday after the party. I opened it up and that machine was also broken. I gave up trying to work with webstaurant and tried to turn the machine on and see if it would work without the piece. It worked for a minute but because I used it and turned it on, webstraurant wont take the piece of crap back. Now I have a huge $230 box of metal that doesn't make cotton candy. 0 of 10 would recommend.
Kasey C. Posted on 04/16/2017
This product is easy to use and efficient. Although the first machine we received did not turn on, customer service worked with us to get a replacement pretty quickly. Heat up quickly and easy enough for other staff to use.
Giuseppe B. from Village Grill and Chill Posted on 04/12/2017
Got the Carnival King Cotton Candy machine and it is awesome. Machine has worked fine since we brought it. The spin time to make about 40 bags of cotton candy is about 10 minutes, depending on how your production line is setup. Using less than a scoop if you want fluffier cotton candy. I am excited about the machine and the kids have love being able to have cotton candy. Our first event with the machine is coming up and we know it will be a huge hit.
Alvita G. from Venesha Sweets Posted on 03/16/2017
We've only had this machine about a week now (2/2/17) and so far we are having a BLAST with it! We placed the machine by the entrance near a window and the attention it draws as the Floss cones are made has been wonderful. The machine has been super easy to clean and is significantly quieter to operate than I had anticipated. It is incredibly easy to operate, our 13 year old has become an effective cotton candy maker in our candy shoppe. So far we've only purchased the cherry flavored Floss be today I'll be ordering a yellow and blue flavor to compliment our display. Highly recommend this affordable fun machine.
Diane R. from Kingston Candy Bar Posted on 02/03/2017
I purchased this machine a few months ago. Upon start up it makes a loud humming noise and I have to turn it off and on several times to get it to stop humming. Now just the other day the hooks that are used to secure the steel drum to the motor broke off. Now I can't even attach the unit to the motor. I've tried to find a customer service number for carnival king but I've had no such luck. This machine was purchased to increase revenue at my business. It has failed miserably. Looks like I'm out of a few hundred bucks. Very disappointed.
Brian S. Posted on 01/21/2017
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. It was, single-handedly, the best gift he's ever received! He plugged it in right away and started making cotton candy. We've made it for guests the day after Christmas, too. This piece is quite large - really not for home use - but we plan to use it for parties and at our business, eventually. Delicious cotton candy. Easy to clean. Great price and amazing customer service. Will be back for future needs!
Cherie H. from CSH Posted on 12/27/2016
Purchased that Carnival King CCM28 cotton candy machine for a school project and our students loved it. Now every day at school we are making cotton candy. Cool.
Ioannis T. from Cliffmart LLC Posted on 11/03/2016
Amazing machine smells so good attention grabber line maker and efficient in making cotton candy glad I purchased ??will buy more quality products from Webstaurantstore
Tania M. from Cottoncandy.lite Posted on 10/23/2016

Pablo R. from Enchanted Pro Party Rental Posted on 09/14/2016
love the smell took,a minute but now I know how to make cotton candy. this machine is full of fun exciting to everyone who sees it and draw a lot of attention.
Nicol D. Posted on 06/25/2016
Outstanding customer service! Promptly replaced defective machine! Produced delicious light, fresh tasting cotton candy! The customers were extremely impressed with this machine's output of product!
Steve N. Posted on 06/18/2016
Bought this to use for my concession trailer business. I will be using it this weekend. We have tried it at home a few time, seen to work like a charm. I will update after the weekend.
Dave W. from Dj's mini donuts Posted on 06/01/2016
After using cotton candy machines costing hundreds of dollars more than the Carnival King, I was skeptical regarding the performance of this machine. We gave it a thorough work-out at a local festival, spinning cotton candy for hours! The cotton candy was so beautiful that people were taking pictures and videos of their children holding it. It kept up with the demand of non-stop production until about 6 hours into the second day when the belt broke. Fortunately, it comes with replacement belts so we were able to get it up and running again. Another plus for this machine is that it stretches the cotton candy floss sugar so much further as it spins every single grain (unlike our more expensive machine which leaves a lot of sugar unspun) and is super quiet.
Deborah C. from Treetz Posted on 05/09/2016
We purchased the Cotton Candy Machine for our small business to rent out and we also wanted to use it for our children's ministry at church. It is so much fun and so easy to use! We have used it several times and it is easy to set up and use. Our kids ministry is showing the kids how to spin their own cotton candy and they really love it! For outdoor use, I would suggest purchasing the bubble cover to keep the candy from blowing around too much. That's my next purchase from webstaurantstore.com
Leeann M. from Texas ServicePro Posted on 03/30/2016
The cotton candy machine works great I got it for my babys 1st bday and all the kids loved it and they are cheapest place to buy from shipping is fast too I buy all my concessions supplies from them never have a problem
William J. from Kendra locke concessions Posted on 03/27/2016
Huge, bigger than it looks in the picture. It will turn one scoop of sugar into candy in about 10 seconds. Very sturdy and well built. Quiet.
Sade K. from Deliciously Dipped Posted on 03/10/2016
Just got my machine in and its GREAT!! Easy to use and very very fun!! I would recommend this to anyone who is just starting off!
Japhet R. from Japhet Rivera Posted on 09/11/2015
This is a good beginner cotton candy machine. I make my own sugar floss and it works great in the machine. I would recommend getting the dome to go with it.
Zoran A. from Oh sweet treat Posted on 07/28/2015
We received our Carnival King Cotton Candy Machine last week and we are amazed by the quality of the machine! Great Product and super price! The Carnival King is a great addition to our Gourmet Popcorn Store.
Amanda W. from Wirtz Family Popcorn Posted on 07/08/2015
I bought This to replace the nostalgia cotton candy cart. I was so impressed cotton candy comes out supper fluffy and yummy! My customers love it aswell... i will def be ordering another one once they are back in stock
Kristi H. from Speedy party rentals Posted on 04/07/2015

Barry S. from SouthJersey BBQ Posted on 01/06/2015
AWESOME! I was going to purchase a similar one that was pretty much twice the price (well known brand vs. competitor) and I am so glad I went with this one. Bargain and does the same thing! YUM.
Brandi G. from Honey B Posted on 11/11/2014
In the market for a cotton candy machine?! Who isn't?! This is a great choice if you're looking for a cotton candy machine with class. Its pink color is really beautiful and it also get the job done fast. Look no further; your next purchase starts here!
Dorothy T. Posted on 10/23/2014

John B. from j&b family affair Posted on 09/20/2014
WHY RENT IT WHEN YOU CAN OWN IT? I PURCHASED THIS UNIT FOR A SCHOOL FOR THE SAME PRICE AS A PARTY RENTAL COMPANY WANTED TO RENT IT TO US FOR. GOOD QUALITY, LARGE UNIT. BEST PURCHASE!
Diana C. from INCR-EDIBLE CUPCAKES Posted on 08/12/2014
The Carnival King CCM21CT cotton candy machine is attached to a mobile cart with two side shelves for holding cones. Its attractive pink color creates an enticing presentation that is perfect for carnivals and parties. With one switch to power on the motor and one switch to turn on the machine’s heating element, operation is simple. Additionally, its bowl is secured to the cart’s base with locking clamps that minimize vibration for quiet use.
|Output||120 Cones / Hour|
|Bowl Material||Stainless Steel|
|Electrical||110 V, 60 Hz, 9.5 Amps|
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.
Deith B. from House of Holistic Posted on 03/20/2018
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.
Brianda Y. Posted on 10/11/2015
This cotton candy machine is great! Once it gets going it can keep going for quite a while. Haven't had any issues where i have to shut it off during use at all. The cotton candy flows right out onto the cone easy peasy. Took a few tries to get use to it, and to see it doesnt stick to the sides of the machine but just comes straight out. Makes nice cones. Have done a few charity events with it and cotton candy is always a huge hit so im glad i got such a great machine!
Kevin M. Posted on 08/16/2018
I do not recommend this product. The first one I purchased only made 5 bags of cotton candy and it broke. The head melted. The only thing that saved me was I took a video of my husband trying to fix it and it showed the melted parts. The company sent me a new machine. It gets olhot easily and I can't do very many bags at a time before having to let it cool.
Rejeana &. from Mickem Concessions Posted on 04/21/2018
I never regret buying this,the kids goes crazy for cotton candy. A good business when it comes to kids.Good for every occasion with kids. Great buy
Marisca R. from The Soualiga Grill Posted on 04/16/2018
Our customers love this product. We have rented this product so many times. It's very easy to use, and simply designed. Cleaning can be tricky, but we have learned to let it spin all the sugar out, then clean it with hot water and soap. We love this machine!
Jose A. from Santi-Rae's Party Rentals Posted on 04/12/2018
My Carnival King Cotton Candy machine arrived with a scratched bowl and what I later discovered to be bits of floss tar on the spinner head. The machine itself is fine. However, it should not be sold without the bubble to control the flying sugar and wisps of cotton candy from going everywhere. Also, my machine came with a stand that is not very sturdy and the side tables are too short and narrow to be productive. It would have been great if Great Western had left the drawer intact on the machine for storage of the floss then one would have more workspace on the side tables.
Mom O. Posted on 03/13/2018
Was very disappointed in this product. The spokes on the wheels broke after the first use. We used it only 3 times in the 5 months since purchasing it. It quit working during the 3rd time using it. A company selling products for commercial use should not be offering anything of this poor quality.
Joseph B. from Mark Twain Dinette Posted on 03/12/2018
This cotton candy machine will Be our number one and our origins will Now be the back up! This machine powered up so smoothly and once the floss sugar is added, the cotton candy begins to form rather quickly. I highly recommend this machine for at home, festival, or outdoor use!
Nicole from Poppin’ Party Concessions & rentals Posted on 02/26/2018
Unfortunately we had to return this product twice and we ended up going with a different machine. Fortunately we bought it from Webstaurantstore.com and they were very accommodating in taking it for return.
Melissa P. from Sweet Peach's Candy and Confections Posted on 02/25/2018
Great for the carnivals at school, We will be ordering more as our business expands in the near future thanks for a great product. Price was good as well
Herman H. from In-stock supply inc Posted on 02/22/2018
I love this cotton candy maker so much! We enjoy making cotton candy with the kids and it’s so easy! The color is so cute and the two shelves on the side gives you room to hold stuff!
Abigail L. Posted on 12/22/2017
Ordered the machine on the 18th and they had it at my door on the 19th, It was a birthday present and it came right on time, my son loved it. This machine is awesome it takes about 2 minutes to heat up and you have cotton candy just like you get from the carnival.
Robert g. Posted on 09/05/2017
A wonderful cotton candy machine that is very stylish on its cart. A great addition to any carnival themed party or even. Makes wonderful cotton candy that kids and adults alike will love.
Jonathan P. Posted on 08/26/2017
The kids and adults loved it. Was easy to use, Easy to put together. Only thing I have to say, a few of one of the wheels spokes were not attach. I have to order a new wheel. I love it.
Deirdra S. Posted on 07/26/2017
We have a theater room in our house and in it we have a popcorn machine we use it every time but I thought we needed something else to spice things up and that's why I bought this
Lalit p. from Foxland market Posted on 07/25/2017
I enjoy making cotton candy with this machine. All the kids line up in my neighborhood and buy some from me. Good unit to purchase
Tre A. from Tre's Anything you want Posted on 07/24/2017
I love this thing. It's from Carnival King and is on a cart which makes it easy to use! I am glad I got this one as we are always moving it around. Great for any party or events your throwing.
Person O. Posted on 06/10/2017
This machine is so, so, so cute! It makes wonderful cotton candy and so far I've had no issues with clogging however I haven't had it very long.
Linda S. Posted on 06/09/2017
Cotton candy machine works great so far! Very cute and attention grabbing design. The only downside is that the instructions it comes with isn't very clear about installing but it is easy to figuare it out. I thought that it comes with the bubble shield but it didn't and that another $100, which is very expensive compared to the machine only being over a little over $200. But overall I would recommend this.
Kady C. from n/a Posted on 04/03/2017
Love the size of this machine. Perfect for small business or gathering. Makes cotton candy really fast. Easy to put together and operate. Easy to clean!
Lisa M. from NE Food Services Posted on 03/13/2017
We really like this cotton candy machine, but the cart broke the first day we used it and wasn't as study as we would have liked. Wish we had ordered the larger machine as we use it a lot for large events, such as tournaments and bday parties. Overall, very easy to clean and smaller machine takes up less space.
Luciana Y. from Legends Ballpark Posted on 01/25/2017
I really like this carnival King cotton candy machine it comes with a nice little stand with wheels and the picture shows only three holes with cones but it actually comes with six holes it's really

Best 6 year old party ever! My daughter wanted a carnival/princess theme. I bought a bunch different food stations and this cotton candy machine was by far the kids favorite. My kids looked it so much we put it in our theater. Gets used quite a bit and is still holding strong (even after 6-8 year old playing with it). Don't it would be good for a pro but for a house worth the money, especially if your a cotton candy freak like me. It is somewhat odd a pain to clean and has had some issues with clogging.

Even though it's pricey, it's a great investment for entertaining. It's easy to use and makes great cotton candy. It's overall a really great product.

Cotton candy machine arrived unbelievably fast, like overnight fast and it was free shipping. Looks to be just what we ordered. Excited to start offering this new treat.

the product arrived with no front or back legs, the company gave me the run around for 3 weeks, would not recommend. Called 3 times to get the missing pieces, still have not received them. the directions suck as well.

I've only used the machine and not the actual cart. Machine works fine but the pieces on the bottom of the bowl where the metal bowl laches to the machine have all fallen off. I can't use the machine until I get them welded back on. Not happy about that.

This machine works like a charm. I made so many cotton candies in a short period of time I couldn't believe how fast it was spitting them out/ I love it.

Who wants to be the favorite person in the neighborhood?? It was my turn to host the kids summer party. I bought this product and it was a HIT! Worked amazingly and it wasn't too hard to cleanup. Worked perfectly!

This cotton candy machine is ADORABLE. I love the vintage pink color and style. The wheels make it easily portable. This would be the hit of any party.

I bought this machine to rent out for my small business. I have had so many good comments about this item. I will recommend the product to others

The Paragon 7105100 Classic Floss 5 cotton candy machine is a durable workhorse that can supply your business with a fresh supply of cotton candy. This machine features a 26" diameter aluminum bowl for added durability, and its simple controls make it easy to operate. Plus, it can make up to 200 cotton candy cones each hour to keep up with your busiest days.
|Output||200 Cones / Hour|
|Electrical||120 V, 60 Hz, 13.6 Amps|
I purchased this item for use at our kids parties and school fund raisers. Couldn't be happier. I have made as few as 6-7 cones at a time and as many as 100 non-stop. easy to use, consistent results, never clogs up, cleans easily. Make no mistake though, this is a large machine, not a kids toy. it's not something you are going to set on the kitchen counter - unless you have a very large counter. I have no doubt this unit will stand up to continuous commercial use. I researched these machines extensively before purchase. This is by far the best value available.

I wish we would have bought this machine from the start. This machine has never let us down, works like a charm. Produces a lot of floss, minimal cleaning. Self cleaning head is perfect.
Scott M. Posted on 09/20/2018
We use this all of the time! We ordered this for two major events that we were having and they were perfect! They made more cotton candy sticks per hour than most machines that we've used.

This machine puts out a ton of cotton candy and quickly, which is also one of the few downfalls of the model. It is slightly louder that other models which makes it a little hard to work with when dealing with crowds. The candy spins out so rapidly it really is a two-three person job and makes it hard to keep up with. Be prepared to be wearing a head to toe cotton candy outfit by the end of the day. The quick making cotton candy machine can be a challenge for one person, but the output is worth it in the end. you can get a full days worth of candy in under an hour, easily. We love the result for the price point.
Kelsey M. from Turntable Cafe Posted on 01/16/2018
We added Cotton Candy to our summer menu. The unit works well for the 6 different flavors that we purchased. FYI, the dome is a must purchase or you have cotton candy everywhere.
Chris F. from INDYO Posted on 04/07/2017
We sell cotton candy at every PTA fundraiser and it's always a hit. We finally decided to invest in our own machine rather than renting and this model was the perfect fit.
Jessica C. Posted on 10/24/2016
We bought this for our concession stand and it easy to use and works perfect. Makes a lot of cotton candy in a short period of time.

I bought this Paragon Classic 5 Floss Maker to start a vending business. I used to own a GM Floss Boss, and it was barely adequate for the volume that I do... The Paragon Classic Floss 5 is twice the machine, it makes the Floss Boss look like a toy.... After test running my machine, I will be purchasing a Bubble Top for it, as without a top makes running it indoors impossible... (Unless you want to clean Cotton Candy off of everything in the house) If you are considering a new Floss machine, this is the one you want...

This machine is junk. I own a Carnival King machine, and it performs well, if a bit slow. I bought this one in the hopes of increasing volume at the events I play. But no matter what heat setting I use, it just spits out little tufts of cotton candy that fly EVERYWHERE. I can't make cones with it, I can't collect the cotton candy to put in a bag, the head won't come clean without taking it apart. I lost money at my last event because of this machine's shortcomings. Do yourselves a favor and avoid machines with the tubular elements, and get a ribbon-style element instead.

I really don’t like the machine compared to my other one. I like that the candy fills up in the bowl but it also deflates as it’s filling up. It heats up really fast and smokes.
Sade K. from Candy on main Posted on 09/27/2018
This machine will be good for any type of commercial use. I find that when I use it indoors there is a fair amount of smoke left indoors after, even though the candy still tastes delicious.

I purchased this cotton candy machine in hopes to make more cotton candy cones at our home football games. A few years ago I purchased the Carnival King CCM28 Cotton Candy Machine with 28" Stainless Steel Bowl - 110V It was a very good machine for the money until the heating element went out. Tried to get a new heating element,but they are on back order. So, I decided to purchase a brand new machine that would put out more cotton candy cones per minute. This one was suppose to put out over 200 an hour. I used it tonight at the football game and I was lucky to get one cone out of it. Following the directions that were sent to me and on the machine all it would do is fly all over the machine and not collect on the cotton candy cone. We couldn’t even get it to start on the cone to get it to wrap around. All it wanted to do was collect in clumps at the bottom of the machine. I was so disappointed. We had to quit before the 2nd quarter of the game. I thought I was purchasing a better machine to produce more cones, but I was wrong. Don’t know what is wrong with this machine, but it is not worth the extra money I spent on it. Was wondering what I can do? I followed the directions and every else that we could possibly do but it would never do what it is suppose to do. All I was doing was wasting my cotton candy floss. I’m really disappointed right now. Please help!!!!!

Replaced a Carnival King cotton candy machine with this Paragon machine. This spins so much faster and more cotton candy bags. The heat is also more powerful with this machine. Bowl came damaged but we were credited some money back. Highly recommend the plastic bowl in order or catch the cotton candy as it spins.

The Paragon 7105200 Spin Magic 5 Cotton Candy Machine with 26" aluminum bowl is a great deal, it's a little bit on the expensive side but all in all it's large size and capacity makes for a whole lot of fun for a whole lot of individuals.
