If you want to ensure your next party is the talk of the town or your kids host playdates for the history books, all you need is a cotton candy machine. The fluffy treat is a crowd pleaser, and it’s a cinch to make at home. Here’s what to look for in a machine whether you want it for everyday family fun or a nostalgic twist at your next bash.
Personalize Your Flavors
Look for a machine that can use both flossing sugar or hard candies. That way you can easily experiment with flavors or meet dietary restrictions (yes, cotton candy can be sugar-free).
For Big Crowds
If you’re expecting a lot of guests, especially a group of eager kids, look for a fast-moving, electric cotton candy maker. One like this can whip up as many as three servings a minute!
For a nostalgic twist, look for a machine on a rolling cart. It’s a breeze to move for indoor/outdoor use. But best of all, it adds a whimsical touch to your kitchen or playroom when not in use.
