This is a great melter for heating low melt point ingredients such as soy or coconut candle waxes, soap oils, butters and melt and pour soap bases. The heating element gently warms and does not allow the contents to get above 215 degrees so your ingredients won't burn. Stainless steel tank sits securely on heating element base and can be easily removed for cleaning. The tank is large enough to hold 25 to 30 lbs. of material.
Features: * Easy to clean stainless steel tank * Ball valve with downspout to empty ingredients * Separate heating platform for easy tank removal * Maximum temperature 215 degrees
Commonly used for: * Melting candle waxes (low meltpoint paraffin, coconut or soy) * Melting soap oils * Heating bulk blocks of melt and pour soap base * Making lotion/cream from scratch in large batches
This unit plugs into a standard outlet and the heater is 1500 watts so it uses about 20% less electric than your stove.
