Default Sunrise candy/cream machine

So I've made the move from spoon and pan, to power and a pull of the hand. 250 gallons in on the machine and loving it!! Great technical and customer support from the crew at sunrise. Willing to take ideas I have to stream line machine better and they send me the parts to try it out at their cost. I can't complain at all.

How well does it make cream? Also with any machine like this how do you clean it without losing a lot of product? Seems like the sticky, viscous cream or candy would be very hard to clean out without thinning it.

On my gear pump cream machine I heat up a 1/2 gallon of syrup to close to boiling and pour it in when finished. Let it circulate for a bit and let it back into the jar. This gets most of the sweet out. The 1/2 gallon goes back in the fridge till I make candy or cream again. Then I do two passes with water.

That Sunrise machine is a pretty sweet setup. I played around on one last year at Merle Maple; not quite long enough to get the hang of a perfect fill in the molds but enough to know that it's a fine piece of equipment.

Seems fair given it does candy and cream and has a water jacket. Really cool feature.
