Cotton candy machine question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'd like to buy a machine that "spins up" - so I would be able to make artistic shapes like this:

 

some of the Gold Medal videos I watch they do not seem to do this.

Any advice would be appreciated - thank you.

I don’t think there is a vending machine that will do that. There are cotton candy machines but they only make a regular ball on a stick.

Yes I suspect there are no vending machines that will do anything like that.  I am wondering what sort of machine they use in these videos.

I am no cotton candy aficionado but that looks like a standard cotton candy machine. I googled  "cotton candy machines"  and got a ton of results. Here is one:

I have found all kinds of machines for sale, but I am looking for one that can do what is shown in the videos.  I am unsure what to buy because of this.

I don't think you can buy "talent" because no "machine" will make those

They were selling these at the IAAPA expo this year.  The spin head produces a much finer floss than a Gold medal type machine and the spin head is surrounded by a fan that pushes this lighter floss vertically.  They had 2 machines available, the standard version for $999 and the XL, which could produce it faster and a larger volume, for $1,299.

There was also a vending machine type version at the show that used air pressure to help form the various shapes.  It was pretty impressive!  They were asking $7,500 FOB China.

That vending machine looks unfinished. You put the coin in, but need a key to open the door to insert the stick, and then again at the end you need a key to open the door to get the product.
