Details

The all-in-one Candle Maker is a compact, easy-to-use unit for small batch soy candle making. The Candle Maker melts the wax to the appropriate temperature, alerts you when it’s time to add fragrance, and stirs your fragranced wax continuously until it’s time to pour. It’s perfect for trying out new fragrances and making little runs of samples to promote your business. Holding up to 8 weighted ounces of wax, it’s a convenient device for creating test candles before committing to larger batches and quantities of materials.

The Candle Maker is ideal for smaller project ideas, capable of making 16 tealights, four votives, two 6 oz candle tins, or one tumbler. This device can also easily melt wax for second pours to fix any surface issues with already poured candles. No additional equipment is required, so no need to dig into your stash of pouring pitchers, stirring utensils, and thermometers. When your candle is poured and cooling, all you need to do is wipe out the non-stick aluminum pitcher for easy cleanup.

The unit works best with low melt point waxes that have a melt point of 125ºF or less.

Usage:

  • Plug in the unit and add up to 8 weighted oz of wax to the pitcher.
  • Press the first button to start the melting process.
  • The second button will flash once the wax is hot enough to add the fragrance. Pour in 0.5-1 oz of fragrance and press the second button to start stirring. The unit continuously stirs to ensure the fragrance is fully mixed into the wax.
  • The third button lights up when the wax reaches pouring temperature. (Things happen, so if you get distracted, the unit will turn off after two hours if a button has not been pressed or the pitcher lifted.) Then lift the pitcher and pour the wax into a pre-wicked candle container. Let sit. Enjoy your homemade candle! If you want the strongest fragrance possible, wait at least one week before burning the candle.

Incredible!

That is incredible. I've put in on my shopping list. Definitely going to buy one. Maybe a larger size is in the works as well.

Candle Maker

I have being using CandleScience since 2015 but this is my first review on this site.
I really enjoy this candle maker. It is very easy to use and even easier to clean. I have so far made three batches of soy candles, it is a real time saver.
I also was wondering about the temperatures so I reached out to Chandler & Me on Facebook. They informed me “The wax heats to around 167F for adding fragrance and cools to around 144F for pouring. Even though many of the different soy waxes vary in their temp recommendations we find the unit works well with almost any soy container wax...also works great with soy wax for tarts and melts. Have fun:) ”. While I was making some candles I did check the temperature of the wax with my own digital thermometer that I bought from CandleScience, when it was ready to add fragrance it said 174F and ready to pour was 143F ( I was using GB464).
I am very pleased with this product it is a game changer. On the instructions it does state that if you want to add more than 8oz of wax you can wait until it melts and add more, there is a max fill line on the pitcher and it can hold more than 8oz,but I have not personally tried it yet.
So far I am happy with the final results. The cold throw was on par and tops came out nice and smooth. Although I can’t say anything about the hot throw yet, I am hoping it will be good.

Couple questions

Pretty near, but couple quick questions:

1) Any plans to make one that makes more than 1 standard size candle?

2) Unless I am missing it somewhere, I cant seem to find any info on what temp i keeps the wax melted to, what temp it beeps to add fragrande, and what temp it beeps to pour? Are there any temperature control settings? Soy, parasoy, parrafin, etc... all have different temperature considerations for melting, adding FO, and for pouring.

Thanks
