This was too cute to not put on a thread by itself!

Macy's also has a mini cotton candy machine!


Mini snow cone machine (good for home theater decoration too!)

I don't know why Macy's doesn't have the cotton candy posted on their website.

My Dad says that the mini cotton candy machine is pink.

I think he was looking in a pre Thanksgiving Macy's ad.

I think that particular ad has all the pictures.

I'm going to Macy's with my Dad sometime and get the hot dog stand and snow cone machine.

I might get the popcorn one for decoration.

I will definetely use the snow cone and hot dog stand.

Thanks PC Doctor. I actually mentioned these to my wife last night and she said that she saw them at a store in Canada called Home Outfitters. She was also quite short with me about them, and usually would tell me right away about an interesting find like this. Looks like I might find one under my Christmas Tree after all :)

I bought the popcorn popper posted above for $39 dollars and tried it out last night. Unfortunately the results are not good. It spins the kernels at pretty high speed while it is popping and when the kernel pops, it gets thrown out the chute on the side. The problem is that it throws out two or three pieces of burning hot unpopped kernels with each piece of popped popcorn. Keep your kids away!


Needless to say, it is going back to the store.

Yes, I have heard this about the popcorn machine.

I would only get the popcorn machine for decoration purposes but I will actually use the snow cone and hot dog machines.

I took back both my Dad's and my snow cone machines to Macy's.

It took five mins. to make a snow cone.

I have heard bad things about the popcorn machine also but I'm just using that for decor.

I still haven't had time to try out the hog dog machine.

Just tried out the hot dog machine about 30 mins ago.

It's ok.

On a scale of 1-10 I give the hot dog machine a 7.

I'm used to cooking my hot dogs in a microwave.

So, I guess I'm not giving it a fair comparison.

I'm just going to use the hot dog cart for decor.

I boiled the hot dogs about 20 mins.

Also, the snow cone machine manual says that you can't use the machine more than 5 mins at a time.

You have been warned.

jim in cincy,do they have the others that go along with the hot dog cart..i received one for x-mas..haven't used it yet, but it does look nice.


i have to agree with the popcorn machine opinions.i got mine for $14 on ebay brand new,awhile ago..before they picked up popularity.the popcorn i made was okay..it probably would have been better with some quality corns..although alot of it did go unpopped..i kept it for decor as i believe most has..if i can find the others for a good price i will get them as well(scowcone, and cotton candy).LMK if you see em somewhere.

I received the Old Fashioned Popcorn Popper Cart for Christmas but haven't used it yet. And I just got the Hot Dog Cart last week but I haven't opened it yet. I'd like to have the cotton candy and snow cone machines but can't find them at Macy's. Looks like all they have now is the Hot Dog cart.
