I find this jar is better with double wicking its works great but it does not work well with single wicking

Try SIngle Wicking

I really love this jar but was having a really hard time finding the right wick. All wicks I used, including the suggested wick in the guide burned really hot with 6006. I changed to a single Premier wick that works excellent. I will continue using these jars.

Great jars

These jars are very nice! I love them and the lid selection too. I use c-3 wax with two htp 93 wicks works great. Just make sure you put it to where the wick is going to curl out towards the outside of the jar. Google htp wick curl if you need to learn about how they burn. Or light a wick before you put it in a jar to learn which way they're going to curl.

Double Wick Success

I love this jar. I have been double wicking this size for years with LX-14s in 464 soy and they burn perfectly.

Love this jar!

We just started using these jars and have had no problems with the CD 26 wick! So far so good!
