MOM Review [Cotton Candy Machine]

I love to host. Its something we do all of the time, whether its just a few friends or our whole family. I came across The LA Shop, they sell all kinds of items online. Everything from gardening, photography, kitchen goodies to trade show equipment. One of their kitchen goodies caught my eye, A Cotton Candy Machine!

I just had to try this out!












I received this via UPS ( the shipping was fast!). My initial thought was, "the packaging could be a little more up to date."

Funny right? Whatever.. as long as it makes cotton candy!


Once you open the package you'll see the base, the bowl, sugar, a spoon and a black piece for the middle.

The instructions are easy to follow and assembly is fast.



Here's what it looks like put together.


Before you started spinning the sugar I looked for cones, there aren't any included in the package so I went to my craft room and whipped up a cone and added some washi tape for fun.



We didn't waste anytime trying it out... One big scoop of orange sugar... [fingers crossed]


The sugar goes in this center piece... this almost seems too easy huh?


Turn on the machine and wait...


 You can see that the center is spinning and the bottom is getting hot. The instructions say to wait about a minute or two before you see the cotton candy, I can tell you its closer to 4 minutes so don't worry its working...



Once it starts producing cotton candy place the cone in the bowl and circle your cone as you twist it... catching as much cotton candy as you can.



This process goes fast and you'll have something that looks like this:


I pressed the loose cotton candy up to make it look prettier on the cone... took a picture then proceeded to share this wonderful treat with a friend.

It only produced one small cone from the one scoop of sugar. This is a great amount to serve at a party and for kids. I love cotton candy but the amount you get at the amusement parks is just ridiculous.



The after math on the machine was not that bad at all. A little melted sugar at the base but nothing you can't easily clean up.


I'd recommend this product from The LA Shop: its fun, fast and who doesn't love cotton candy at a party?

Pros:
Fast assembly 
Fast Cotton Candy making
Small Amount
Variety of Sugars provided

Cons:
No cones included



Now for the fun part... because I got to try this Cotton Candy Machine, The LA Shop is offering you a discount!

  2. ...3D Bioprinting-Immortality... ((sugar cotton fibers produced by centrifuge machines are even finer...capillaries are between 2 tenth and 1 hundredth of a millimeter in diameter...perhaps... Could be used these machines adapted as "biocentrifuges" to make capillary micro-tubes with a biodegradable and binder yarn of sugar inside coated with endothelial cells?))... (Also could be synthetic-capillaries, both networks are put into the mold with the organ´s shape...mold that Bioprinter fills with cells)... Network capillary-skeleton, porosity among adjacent cells, A FINE MESH OF FIBROUS CONNECTIVE TISSUE fastening the cells: collagen?...fibrin?...a blood´s protein in salty water insoluble who forms the cell´s-subjection-mesh of blood-coagula... SUITABLE POROSITY: (would to watch very closely capillaries at microscope ) both capillary networks (blood and lymphatic) could have a natural unequal aleatory distribution (Better or Worse Equidistance in each organism, better or worse equal feeding to ALL tissue´s cells) of MESH´S HOLES (in blood capillaries: Exit for plasma, 1 liter/hour in human whole organism, through of this plasma go exiting continuously at their discretion towards the intercellular-space O2, nutrients, leukocytes...or Entrance for CO2. In lymphatic capillaries: Entrance for surplus lymph with cellular refuses lactic acid, etc...who cause muscular fatigue). Maybe the better or worse equidistant porosity of skeleton-mesh cell´s-subjection in each capillary tube; besides of genetics: ...size and quantity of mitochondria per cell (only are inherited the mother´s mitochondria...), distance of insertion´s point the tendon of a muscle from the articulation to a bone (law of lever), etc...; a natural cause for to win or not to win a medal in Olympic Games.

  3. "Mankind" going to "future" (silence is golden?)... "rossse-tie" passive homo-vice, "bluesss skysss-tie" active homo-vice from the "facestifffinger". The apostles of the inhuman homo-vice religious, politicians and their catchpolls propagator acolytes "maricones" and "tortilleras" in News TV installed "cual vieja germánica cucaracha" reclaiming miserable "free sex orientation" announcing "happy" their days of "pride" infecting colors, numbers, words... Literati hypocrites "ignorantes gentes basura con el pescuezo metido en la mierda de los curas"... unpunished and constant in TV channels and Hollywood-movies violence subliminal or evident agains women. Silence is golden?: NOT. Now have to DESTROY ALL VIOLENCE´S MOVIES AND TV PROGRAMS AGAINST WOMEN. 10,000 movies, South American TV-novels and general TV to Trash. Those movies and TV programs are sponsored by homo-vices cowardly hidden behind an apparent mask of "dignity". It´s time for to say without fear the truth for the wellness of Future Humankind.

  4. ...interstellar travel (immortals newbody)... 3D Bioprinting...the technology used to print documents is also being utilized to create living tissue, in a not too distant future to "print", overlapping layer upon layer, whole organs such as a heart, a liver, a kidney, and one day a whole body. In the beginning the basic technique was exactly the same as using a normal jet printer ink, when printing a document (or image) ink of different colors are distributed on the paper in a specific pattern. It all started in this way: at Clemson University (years ago) have replaced printer inks for some "ink cells" alive. The ink cartridges were refilled with some cell solutions and software was rescheduled. The "paper" is a biodegradable gel, designed at the University of Washington, which solidifies to reach 32 ºC of temperature. Still need it much? for to be a reality with great performances. The main problem is that it is unable to create an organ which circulates the blood, but it can print a tissue with thickness of a kidney in just 2 hours. The next step is to print the tiniest (capillaries) parts of an organ, just those that make it work (plasma with O2 and nutrients towards...▓...and CO2 which go into from...). If this is achieved would be very near the Eternity for human being. NASA and other companies are interested in these researches.
