This cotton candy machine is Great. I ordered it for my granddaughters 3rd birthday party instead of renting one each yr and was expecting something smaller for the price but it's definitely commercial size and works great. My son just YouTubed a video for fast instructions since we didn't open it before the party and made cotton candy on and off for 4 hrs (whenever the kids wanted it). I would definitely recommend this to any family or friend wanting one.

I received my npc cc machine yesterday in the mail. (5 days earlier then I was told) I set it up and used it. It works great but very fast. As soon as you put the sugar in it begins emitting cc so have the scoop in one hand and cone in the other. (This does not come with cones) Your cone will be done being spun in 30 secs or less. Unfortuntely it began to rain so I had to pack every thing up rather abruptly. I plan on making more cc today! Thanks Home Depot for providing me with this great machine!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobL Great machine, but...
Definitely a pro-quality machine, not to be compared to the plastic toy machines. Heats up fast and makes good cotton candy. Mine was missing the extra belt it is supposed to include. Biggest issue is that a scoop of sugar lasts only seconds and flings about half out as granular candy, which sticks on the walls of the tub. Maybe this improves with more use, but it sure seems like it could handle more sugar than 1 scoop, and maybe that would clog up the extrusion holes so that it would all melt and come out as floss instead of rocket out to the tub walls. By the way, the candy from the walls is tasty and kind of fun, but I want better cotton candy yields.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by texastravelers Great value!
Bought this machine to use in a weekend vendor booth at local fesitvals. The vortex is fairly light weight, so it's easy to transport. It takes about 5 minutes to heat up, then works like a champ. It puts out 2 to 3 cones per minute. My only complaint is that quite a bit of the floss ends up sticking to the walls of the machine. So, it's not super efficient in that regard, but this is my first cotton candy machine. Maybe that's normal. At any rate, so far we are very happy with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCN90266 Perfect for PTO's!
I bought this machine so our school would not have to rent one year after year. The out put is good and it is very easy to clean! The cotton candy spins out the center of the machine, which is different than the more expensive machines. I also purchased the "bubble" that goes over the drum (from another site, Home Depot did not carry it) which is a must so that the cotton candy doesn't fly everywhere. Great machine, easy to use and clean!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by plumfunpartyrentals Not a commercial unit but works great for backyard party
Good solid construction, simple operation. I have several Gold Medal units and they work great however, they are heavy, big tub and a lot of work to clean.
This unit has a smaller drive motor and belt drive. Replacement belts at Harbor Freight cost less than a buck. It's slower to heat up but good for backyard parties and rental business.
