I just read that someone used regular sugar mixed with Kool Aid (powder) and got a lot more cotton candy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied Takes way to long to warm up for the amount of time it takes to make cotton candy. Makes very little cones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for a home machine I purchased this product for my daughters birthday because it was much cheaper than renting a machine. I found that the machine makes a decent ammount of cotton candy, not as much as you would get in a bag from a carnival, but more than I expected from a home machine. When putting the candy on to the stick I discovered that the candy stayed fluffy if I held the stick over the machine and turned it rather than following the directions that came with the machine. When I tried using hard candy it did not give off as much floss as when I used cotton candy sugar and it was not as fluffy. I found flavor packets that you can add to sugar, to make your own for much less than buying ready made sugar, on that big auction site. The longer you let the machine warm up the better the cotton candy it made. I have run the machine for up to an hour at a time and it has not had any problems when used for such an extended period. I have used this machine many times and it still works great. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! We love this cotton candy maker. My daughter asked for one for her 8th birthday and after extensive research I had found that this particular one came with the best reviews. I had attempted to purchase this machine at 2 other sites and found that they were either out of stock and excessively priced with expensive shipping options. I was extremely pleased to find and purchase my item from Home Depot since I have been so fond of the store for quite some time. My shipment arrived at an amazing speed and in great condition. We love making cotton candy with the neighborhood children but have found that it is best for the kids to watch rather than attempt to spin the floss themselves, which they still love!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very fun! This product works extremely well. It's easy to use - and fun! It can get a bit messy - but that's to be expected. It's fun to mix different candies to make your own flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great experience! Ordered the Nostalgia Electrics Cotton Candy Maker -PCM 805 for our son and his family for Christmas. Shipping was exteremly fast. The first one arrived with the clear plastic ring shattered...we attributed this to poor packaging by the Nostalgia company. Home Depot sent another right through to us, and it arrived in perfect condition. We used it for the first time with our grandsons (ages 6 and 4). It was very easy to use and also to clean. Worked great with both the flossing sugar and hard candy.We all had a blast with it, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Great buy!
