Cotton Candy Machine

Cotton candy machines are used in various businesses (such as carnivals and movie theatres) and in some homes as well. The machine uses a hot plate, centrifugal force, sugar, and fine holes. The machine basically creates spun sugar. This is a dessert that has been around for hundreds of years but has only become very popular in the past 50 years.

Sugar is mixed with food coloring (usually pink or blue) and heated up on the hot plate. The sugar will begin to melt and threads of it will get sent through a mesh net because of the centrifugal force. The threads will then start to cool down and the cotton candy will be ready to be spun up and served.

Why Buy a Cotton Candy Machine?
Many business owners can make a profit from owning cotton candy machines. This is especially true for owners of carnivals and fairs. Cotton candy has already been revolutionized so there is no need to do much marketing for the product.
