How to make Cotton candy - 3.6 out of 5 based on 5 votes


Concept

When sugar is heated, it becomes a liquid caramel. If you continue to heat, the sugar burns out. When caramel is pushed out from tiny holes to the outside by using the centrifugal force, the cotton candy
can be made.   The cotton candy making machine can be made with easy available materials.

Materials

tea strainer of metal, motor, wire, spirit lamp, pin, adhesive tape, rubber t ube, aluminum plate, dry battery, conducting wire, cardboard box, and crystallized sugar

Fabrication

  1. Cut the aluminum plate as like the gear wheel for the tea strainer lid, and the hole for putting sugar is made, too.
  2. Bend two places on the tea strainer grip.
  3. The pin and the rubber tube are pu t up to the axis of the motor.
  4. The connection of the motor and the tea strainer is made from the wire.
  5. The spirit lamp is put in the cardboard box and ignited.
  6. The crystallized sugar is  put in the tea strainer.
  7. The motor is connected to the dry battery after heating s ugar with the spirit lamp for a while.

    Asalam Alaikum, such a nice idea for cotton candy but If you search around probably you will find an old method of hand operated cotton candy making machine in Pakistan, they used to burn wood in it and that machine was existed in and around 1978 (Last seen by me in Islamabad)
