DO NOT operate this appliance without the Extractor Head in place. NEVER place sugar or candy directly on the heating element as sugar is flammable and could cause a fire.

  1. First, find a stable surface near an electrical outlet before starting. Make sure the cord is away from any water source.
  2. Plug in unit on the OFF position.
  3. Turn unit to ON position and allow appliance to run for at least 10 minutes before adding sugar. This will allow the Extractor Head to heat up properly.
    NOTE: Hard candy must not be used on the candy maker.
  4. Turn unit OFF and place no more than one spoon of flavored sugar into the Extractor Head.
  5. Switch to ON position.
  6. When you see the cotton candy web begin, collect the cotton candy on a cone by holding the cone vertically. Rotate the cone with your fingers while you circle the bowl.
  7. Once cotton candy has collected on the cone, hold the cone in a horizontal position over the Extractor Head while still rotating the cone with your fingers. Continue turning the cone with your fingers while the cone is in the horizontal position and move from side to side making sure to collect all the cotton candy.
  8. Repeat above steps by adding another spoon of sugar into the Extractor Head and starting again. The cotton candy should flow more quickly as the unit is sufficiently warm.

NOTE: DO NOT overfill the Extractor Head by adding more than 1 spoon of sugar at a time. This will cause clogging and unit will not work properly.


  1. Make sure the unit is unplugged and cooled before cleaning.
  2. After cooling, remove the Extractor Head by firmly gripping both sides and pulling straight up. UNLOCK bowl by turning clockwise and lifting it up. Wash the accessories disassembled in warm water, rinse and dry.
    NOTE: Accessories are not dishwasher safe.
  3. Use a clean, slightly damp, non-abrasive sponge or non-abrasive cloth to wipe down the outside of the unit, then wipe with a non-abrasive towel to dry.


If your cotton candy is not flossing properly or is coming out with a brittle, “Easter grass” texture, follow these instructions:

  • Only add 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time.
  • Make sure the sugar is level after pouring into the Extractor Head.
  • The faster the Extractor Head spins, the better the result.
