POPCORN MACHINE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CONTROLS AND THEIR FUNCTIONS
There are three switches on the popper.
LIGHT AND WARMER SWITCH
Turns on the heat to the bottom corn pan and heat light.
KETTLE MOTOR SWITCH
Turns on the motor which drives kettle agitator shaft.
KETTLE HEAT SWITCH
Turns on the heat element
AMOUNT OF POPCORN AND OIL
Your new popper is equipped with an eight-ounce corn measure cup. We recommend
flavored and colored coconut oil. Popcorn popped in coconut oil stays fresh longer. Coconut
oil does not leave black deposits in your kettle like other oils.
Corn charge - 8 oz. (240 ml)
Oil charge – 2.6 oz. (60 ml)
Flavacol – 1 tablespoon (8 cc)
1. Turn KETTLE HEAT and KETTLE MOTOR switch ON.
2. Make test pop with 3 kernels of corn and 1/2 oz. (15 ml) of oil.
3. Load pre-measured popcorn and oil pouch into kettle.
4. Do not lift kettle lids(s) after popcorn is placed in kettle.
5. When corn has popped, dump kettle.
6.Repeat cycle starting with Item #3; always pop 3-5 batches for best
Sno Cone Operating Instructions
To Operate the Sno-Konette:
1. Fill the hopper to within an inch from the top with ice cubes or block ice (no larger than 3
to 4 inches). The larger the pieces, the better the snow.
2. Switch the motor on, and wait for it to reach full speed (this will take a minute or so).
3. Press the pusher handle down against the ice in the hopper. Apply firm and even
pressure to make the best snow. Practice will enable you to gauge when to stop.
This allows the ice to resettle against the shaver head. You may find that you
need to relieve the pressure two or three times during a cycle. Too much pressure will
result in snow that is coarse; too little pressure will make the snow mushy.
NOTE: Never allow any foreign or metallic objects around the shaver area of the Sno-
Konette. Ice picks, scoops, and debris that may be in the ice often damage blades.
The Sno-Konette can take ice cubes or block ice, if you break the block into pieces
approximately 3 to 4 inches in size.
NOTE: The ice will not enter the shaving chute if the pieces are too large.
Cotton Candy Machine Operating Instructions
Operating the Machine:
1. With the main switch OFF, fill the floss head. Always fill it 90% full with floss sugar. This quantity is necessary to
obtain a balanced condition in the floss head. DO NOT OVERFILL! Excessive vibration will occur if overfilled. Before turning
the power on, manually turn the head to balance out the sugar. This will eliminate excessive vibration of the head.
2. IMPORTANT: Always turn machine off before adding more sugar.
3. Turn MAIN SWITCH and HEAT SWITCH “ON.”
4. Turn heat control knob clockwise to maximum setting to initiate the fastest possible warm up.
5. The machine should start making floss in a few seconds. When the unit starts making floss, you must reduce the
6. Turn the heat control knob counter clockwise to the marked operating position to eliminate smoking. If you operate
the unit at “start up” setting, you will “carbonize” the ribbon (heat element). Never operate equipment for a prolonged period
of time with the HEAT CONTROL in a position that causes the sugar to smoke. This will result in excessive carbonization of
the ribbon (heat element). If you smell burning sugar or see smoke, reduce the heat.
1. Keep hands away from spinning head!
2. Pick a cone; if it sticks in the stack of cones, twist it off the stack.
3. Hold an inch or two of the pointed end of the cone between two fingers and a thumb. With a light flicking action, roll
cone in the web of floss building up in the pan. Lift the cone up with the ring of floss attached and rotate the cone to wrap
the floss. DO NOT roll floss while the cone is inside the pan. This will pack the floss too tightly.
4. If the floss fails to stick to the cone, pass the cone near the spinner head to pick up a “starter” of melted sugar. Lift
the cone out of the pan and wrap the floss with a “figure eight” movement of the hand. This leaves giant pockets and makes
the final product appear larger.
5. Make sure room humidity is not too high, or product will be “heavy.”
6. In operation, the floss will collect on the mesh stabilizer inside the bowl. If the floss collects “low” on the netting, twist
the front (leading) edge of the leather floaters down. You get more lift and the floss will collect higher.
