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 (227 g) 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 (51.7°C) or less.
- Plugin the unit and add up to 8 weighted oz (227 g) 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 (14-28 g) 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.
If the Candle Maker makes a loud noise, a chunk of wax may be caught in the stirring mechanism. The noise will lessen as the wax melts. To reduce the noise, don't pack the wax tightly into the pitcher. Add some of your wax, let it melt, then add the remaining wax.
A larger pitcher is available as an add-on for this unit.
