There is nothing more enjoyable than a day out at a carnival with family and friends, and there are some things that have to be there or it just won’t feel right. Can you even imagine a carnival without being able to buy a hot dog and smother it in your favorite sauce (ketchup for me please)? Or not being able to get cotton candy that’s bigger than the size of your head? Don’t you just love to let that sweet pink cloud melt in your mouth? A day at the carnival just absolutely wouldn’t feel right without these things!
But why wait for the next carnival to provide these things for you when you can get a cotton candy maker for yourself. You can or use it for birthdays, parties, and summer gatherings. Your friends and family will be so impressed, and you’ll probably get the well-deserved title: the hostess with the mostest!
To make sure your party hits the nail on the head, make sure that on really hot days your guests can stay cool and refreshed. One of the best solutions is to have shaved ice at the ready to serve after eating your pink, fluffy creation! Once everyone is filled up on good food and treats, the adults usually want to sit down and enjoy the day and catch up with friends. But there’s the small problem of being surrounded by the excited, energetic kids whom you can barely keep your eyes off for more than a second. One of the best ways to keep all the children entertained and happily playing together for hours on end is a bounce house, so make sure you add it to the list when planning your next party. And then sit back and enjoy!
Even if you don’t throw a party, you can still use your cotton candy machine anytime you want cotton candy for yourself!
The price of a cotton candy maker can vary quite a lot, from around $50 to about $650, so it’s good to consider what you’ll be using it for and what your budget is before setting your heart on one particular model. At the top end, you can buy a steady, well-made product that is efficient and speedy for you to make many cotton candies in a small amount of time. This is a good investment if you are purchasing the machine for your business or to serve large crowds. It’s also a good idea to make sure it comes with a year or so guarantee to give you peace of mind when you’re parting with that much hard-earned money. At the lower end of the range, you can get a cotton candy maker that is more appropriate for smaller crowds or home use that won’t need to have as quick of a making time. $50 will provide a well-made and trustworthy machine that will add a touch of sweetness into your home life.
Whilst you’re scanning the shops and internet for a good deal, be weary of cheap cotton candy makers. It may sound like a great deal, but if the machine fails just as you get it out for your child’s birthday party, there are going to be tears of disappointment. And it will be a complete waste of money.
If you’re a first-time buyer or want to upgrade to a new model, there are a few things that you should think about and keep in mind when choosing the right cotton candy maker for you.
Here are a few of the most important factors:
If you need more information to help you decide what would suit you best, keep reading below!
The main construction and design aspects of a cotton candy machine are speed, wattage and material. These are all equally important factors to consider before making your purchase and here’s why.
The speed or efficiency of the maker determines how many cotton candies you can make within an hour. At the top of the range you can make 200 an hour, and, although this sounds impressive, you only need to invest money into that speed if you are using it on a business-level or around big crowds. Other designs aren’t as fast but are better suited to more intimate events and parties.
Before purchasing your maker, ensure you have checked the wattage to see whether or not it will suit the power you can provide from where you will set it up.
The majority of cotton candy makers are made from metal—usually stainless steel or aluminum—or plastic. Stainless steel is often used when it comes to food appliances due to its sturdiness and the fact that it is easy to clean and maintain. This is the same for cotton candy makers; stainless steel will be able to be used regularly with little wear and tear. Aluminum is also a reliable option, but it is slightly lighter than steel, so it’s good if you need something that you will want to move around with ease. Plastic is the cheapest option out of the three, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a good choice. However, it is the most child-friendly and lightest option; so if that’s what you’re looking for, plastic is the best choice.
A cotton candy maker’s performance will mainly rely on its construction (speed, power etc.) however its ease of use is equally as important and this will depend on the set-up time and difficulty, the size and weight of the machine and also any extras that come with it. Let’s delve deeper into these key aspects.
It’s a good idea to check out customer’s reviews and comments on the set-up and disassembly of the maker before buying to get a better idea of how much work it will take to get it going. Some people are good with machinery and can magically work out where everything goes and get it up and running in no time. However, if you’re a step-by-step manual reader, having clear instructions is a must-have with a new toy! Some you don’t even need to set-up, but it may take some time to warm-up enough to be ready to make the candy floss. Once again, this depends on each make; some designs specifically have quick warm-up mechanisms, so you don’t have to wait long to get started.
Weight, Size and Carry Cart
The weight and size will directly impact how easy it is to store and move to wherever you want to set up the cotton candy stand. Some come with a cart so you can easily wheel it around to where you need it to be, but this obviously takes up more space. Remember to take that into consideration when thinking about storage space, or if you want to get it into a vehicle to take it to another location. Smaller, lighter designs can be easily picked up and moved by one person, so there are options for everyone to choose from.
You can purchase a maker with a cash drawer, so you can easily handle the customer’s money in the same place without messing around with a money bag. Or you can get a cone holder, so you can put down the delicious treats to give you your hands free to sort out money or start the next cotton candy order. There are a variety of perks and extras to choose from so just choose the one that appeals to you the most.
Each cotton candy maker will come with instructions on how to clean it, so you can have good, clean fun every time you use it.
