Gold Medal Cotton Candy Machines
What's on offer - Gold Medal Econo Floss, Mega Floss, Floss Boss
Gold Medal cotton candy machines first made an appearance in 1949 when the company developed a more reliable mechanism to improve on the original design by William Morrison and John Wharton. The Nashville candy makers made the first electric candy floss machine in 1897 and it was an instant hit at the 1904 St Louis World's Fair where they sold 68,566 boxes for 25c each. As the demand for cotton candy grew so did the demand for reliable cotton candy machines and it was the Gold Medal company who stepped up to the challenge. Their improved design was such a success that they still dominate the industry today. Just about every cotton candy machine used at fairs, carnivals and other large events are made by Gold Medal.
All Gold Medal cotton candy machines are equipped with four carbon brushes and contact with the brass slip rings helps to prevent damage. The carbon brushes are 50 percent larger than in earlier models which helps minimize wear and extends the life of the brushes. These two features are what make Gold Medal cotton candy machines so durable and capable of outlasting many other brands on the market. Gold Medal carries a wide range of cotton candy machines for commercial and home use.
