Candy Floss Maker
Advantages: it does make candy floss
Disadvantages: slow, eats batteries
Who doesn't love candy floss? The sensation of those soft sugary pillows dissolving on your tongue is simply divine. It tends to be a once a year treat in our family as it is only available to buy when we go to the fair so what better way to enjoy the sugary treat all year round than buy a candy floss maker to use at home.
The hand held candy floss maker comes in at around £20 and is battery operated. It is simple to use, let it warm up and then add a measure of sugar and food colouring if you want and the magic machine is meant to turn those ingredients into nice fluffy candy floss. You can also buy special candy floss sugar which is already coloured and flavoured but it is much cheaper to buy simple white granulated.
The machine does work, it does make candy floss but the problem is that it is a long slow process. If you have ever seen a commercial candy floss machine at the circus then you will notice that they are huge drums which heat up really hot whilst this is a pathetic little plastic toy. The amount of candy floss made with each use of the machine is miniscule, so little that it is hardly worth putting it on a stick. It would take several hours to make a candy floss as big as the ones you buy at the fair as you would have to repeat the whole process dozens of times.
This is one of those toys which is a total waste of money, it is likely to be appealing to kids because of the bright colours and the fact they think they can do a grown up cooking activity but I can guarantee if you buy it that it will be used a couple of times and then chucked to the back of the cupboard.
Summary: waste of money
