    Lock-Go-Floss Machines

    Lock-Go-Floss Machines
    If you want an easier to operate cotton candy machine, you’ve got it with Gold Medal’s new patent pending Lock-n-Go handle design. Lock-n-Go machines feature a handle that snaps up and locks the floss head in place, for easy transportation. No more thumbscrews to worry about. When it is time to make product, simply push the handle forward and down to release the floss head. This feature is absolutely ideal for machines to be in rental operations. Currently the Lock-n-Go feature is available for the Breeze, Accu Breeze, Auto Breeze, and Stainless Steel Econo Floss models.

    #3030 Breeze Cotton Candy Machine
    A successful re-introduction of the tubular heating element floss machine Gold Medal made back in the 60’s. Laser technology, improved motor and heat control design makes the nearly permanent candy floss heating element a viable cotton candy machine. Similar to the Econo Floss shown on page 45. Probably the ideal machine to rent when the operator is not the same person as the owner.
    Stainless steel cabinet, Aluminum floss bowl and Whirlgrip stabilizer. 1200 Watts, 115 Volts. Ship weight 46 lbs.


    Maximum Cotton Candy production on a 15 Amp line

    • Whirlwind band and ribbon assembly
    • 1/10 horsepower motor

    #3077 Super Floss Maxx
    When you are selling all the floss you can make and don’t have additional electricity, the Super Floss Maxx will give you more sales per hour than any other machine!
    In early 1999, you saw the first Floss Maxx - a really high output machine suitable for operation on almost any 15 Amp line. People still wanted more production, fluffier cotton candy, more yield per pound of sugar - you get it in the specially patented, high performance floss head shown above. This is standard on the new Super Floss Maxx and the #3015A Whirlwind.

    One word of caution - do not use high wattage heating elements - use special Floss Maxx heating elements. 1800 watts. The wattage has been reduced so that you can plug in on a 15 Amp line. Ship weight 43 lbs.

    #42040 Aluminum Floss Pan is included.
    The white non-metallic bowl is optional at no extra charge. Rental stores love the non-metallic bowl because it does not dent - won’t scratch - won’t discolor.

No other adjustments are needed for this single switch operation machine. Auto cool down simplifies the operation of machine by preventing spinner head clogging. Features a 1/5 H.P. spinner head motor, and a 1500 watt heat element. Requires a 15 amp plug and 1440 watts

    For maximum Cotton Candy sales, change colors each time you add sugar to the spinner head Gold Medal Flossugar is made from a special sugar – not too fine, not too coarse. Colors have been “vividized” so that you get a bright color, but color concentrations do not exceed the limits set down by Food & Drug Administration’s GMP Directives. Flossugar is packed and sealed in 3ΒΌ-lb. cartons and packed six to a case. Open the box and pour into the spinner head-no messy mixing or unsanitary sugar buckets. Inventory is easy and more accurate. Shipping weight is 21 lbs. per case on all flavors.
