The Cra-Z-Cookn’ Cotton Candy Maker, Bella Cotton Candy Maker and Back to Basics Cotton Candy Maker are three child-friendly cotton candy machines. These machines fit on countertops, do not need specialty sugar, and have many safety features.
Cra-Z-Art advertises its Cra-Z-Cookn’ machine as a kid-friendly appliance, claiming that children can use it with minimal supervision. The machine uses basic sugar, or owners can use hard candy to make sugar-free cotton candy. Children can use food coloring or specialty refill packs for rainbow-colored treats.
The Nostalgia Electrics Carnival RetroRed, Waring Pro, Bella, and Back to Basics cotton candy machines all have splashguards to keep the sugar from spraying outside the machine. They all accept standard cane sugar, and some allow users to add food coloring to produced colored cotton candy.
