are three switches on your machine:
Makes the machine spin.
Turns on the heating element
CONTROL KNOB: Adjusts
the temperature of the heating element.
- Setup your machine: it is easier to work
"over" the machine. Place the machine at a height so
that you may reach down into the metal pan. Plug in the
machine and place metal "bowl" or pan over the spinner
- Add Flossugar: In the
round opening on the top of the spinner (where you see the heating
elements) Pour in flossugar, approx. 3 tablespoons or until sugar
barely covers the bottom; machine should still be completely shut OFF
at this point. TIP:
Take a damp sponge or paper towel and run it along the inside of
the metal pan to help the sugar stick to the sides. You only
need to do this ONCE before you turn on the
- Turn on the machine: Turn
on the Motor (it is common for some
sugar to spray out of the spinner at this time. BE
CAREFUL and keep your face away from the top of the
machine!) Turn on the heat switch
and adjust the temperature (heat control knob
should be just a little right of the half-way point.) You
should begin to see cotton candy build-up in the metal pan within
about 45 seconds. If not, adjust heat
- Harvesting the Cotton Candy: After a small
"ring" of cotton candy has built up on the sides of your
metal pan - reach into the metal bowl to the opposite side of where
you are standing with either your hand or a floss cone. Pull
the cotton candy toward you and out of the pan.
- Package Your Candy: If
you're serving on a paper cone, twist the cone into the cotton candy
and pull the circle of floss onto the cone. If you are using
bags, gently stuff the candy into a plastic bag. Typically two
reams (layers of the pan) is considered a serving.
- Clean Up:
When finished, rinse the metal pan with water, the sugar will melt
away effortlessly. Please
DO NOT clean the floss
machine; weíll happily do that for you!
- Don't just make on serving at a time! The
sight and smell SELLS! Display your cotton candy for an
enticing visual and olfactory delight!
- After several cones/bags of candy you will run out
of sugar, simply add more to keep your candy coming. This is
also a great time to switch colors!
- Making Cotton Candy IS a skill!
Practice, practice, practice!
- Thereís no way to prevent some flyaway, donít
worry that some candy escapes the area of the machine.
Always pick a color of floss that looks good on you, youíll
probably have plenty in your hair by the time you finish a hundred
- Especially if itís your first time, have a helper
bag the cotton candy while you spin.
Our bags are on a cardboard header designed to be hung on 2
nails or taped to a table. After
the bag is full, just rip the bag from the header and twist tie,
capturing air in the bag.
- Floss starts to shrink the minute you bag it.
In the cool months, it will last from one to two days before
disappearing, in the hot months, you may have less than 6 to 8 hours
shelf life. Humidity affects the output and shelf life of your
cotton candy, even though itís not always possible, try to make
the candy in an air conditioned environment.
- Be cautious of the spinner head, its rotating at a
high rate of speed, keep your hands away!
