    frosted nuts

    Combo Kandy King

    #2182EL Combo Kandy King

    #2182EL Combo Kandy King
    (Left Hand Dump)
    This machine is perfect for start up shops who might wish to do both Caramel Corn & Frosted Nuts. This machine saves space and allows you to sell two top money-makers in one machine. It makes perfect caramel corn or frosted nuts, batch after batch. You can make almost any kind of frosted nut in this machine including frosted almonds and frosted pecans. Use the #2166 cooling pan for caramel corn, which is sold separately.

    NOTE: Because parts of the machine are very HOT, you must allow for complete cooling before switching products

    #2182ER is Right Hand Dump Version.


    #2181EL Pralinator Frosted Nut Maker
    (Left Hand Dump)
    The Pralinator makes a 4 lb. batch of Sugar ‘n Spice Frosted Nuts about every 15 minutes or so (after the first batch). Use two cups of the nuts of your choice, plus a pouch of #4501 Frosted Nuts Mix and 12 oz. of the “three-to-one” Uncle Dave’s Vanilla. The machine does the rest.

    Shown here is the #2181ER Pralinator Frosted Nut Maker on a #2424 Base Unit. The 101/2" (27 cm) square pedestal actually mounts to the counter in a concession trailer or a concession stand. It’s handiest when it’s mounted no higher than 26" to 30" (66 to 76 cm)
    off the floor.
    4000 Watts, 208/240 Volts 60 Hz or 230 Volt, 60 Hz “EX” version available. Shipping weight 127 lbs.

    • Unit mounts with
      101/2 " x 101/2"
      (27 x 27 cm) pedestal


    Shown here is the proper way to fill and “tuck” so that you have a rather tight
    “rim” or “crown”.

    No need to send off to Europe to buy paper cones to serve glazed almonds. These heavy white Kraft paper cones with attractive graphics are made right at Gold Medal in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

    5 oz. or more.

    Selling price per serving is $2.00, $3.00 and up. Food cost is about 17% to 22%, depending on the price of nuts and the net weight per serving.
