What colours does the sugar come in for the Fairy Floss?

You get the choice of ONE colour. Either, traditional Pink, Blue, Green, Mauve or Yellow. Theme your next event or function.

What is a Popcorn Warmer Machine?

It’s a machine which warms pre-popped popcorn. This means no hot messy oils to worry about. Popcorn comes in a 2kg bag, which is simply poured into the machine, heated and served. Its as simply as that!

Does the equipment operate on a standard 10amp power point?

Yes. A 20 metre extension lead is supplied with each machine. Simply plug the machine into the lead, then straight into a power point. Please, no power boards.

Can a generator run the machines?

Yes. A minimum of a 5.5 Kva generator is required for each of the Fairy Floss and Sno Cone Machines. Therefore if you hired both machines you would need a minimum of a 10Kva generator if both machines are running constantly. The Popcorn Warmer Machines, just need a standard generator to operate.

NOTE: If hiring more then 1 machine, call us first to discuss generator requirements and solutions.  As we can work around to be able to use 1, 5.5kva generator.

Is a bond required if I pickup and operate the equipment myself?

Yes. A $200 CASH bond is required per machine. This is to ensure no equipment is lost and the machine is returned clean.

"Please thank your staff who came to our UNSW Open Day. They did a great job. The smell of the fairy floss certainly attracted many people towards our tent and we were able to compare materials such as fibre glass with edible fibres such as fairy floss. All very relevant to us. I haven’t eaten fairy floss for years and it took me right back - it’s such a fun thing to eat!"
