So disappointed in this product. I’ve tried this on 4 different vessels. It fit perfectly and still every wick I tried was not centered. What a waste of time and money.

This piece of Crap Makes no sense. no offence.

I mean, after reading the reviews, I thought to myself, what could possibly go wrong? I've read the reviews good and bad, but then I thought to myself, well, maybe they're not using it right. So, let me try it for myself. And turns out I'm having the same crappy experience. I might as well eyeball it, because that works better than trying to use this. It's so off-centered, even with the Jars that they recommend, I'm using anywhere from 2 inches to 3 inches diameter, and it's still off-centered. Now, I'm lucky to not have any of my jars cracked, as some others have experienced. But being off-centered is just as bad. 08/24/23

Works perfectly on some jars; description should be updated

I wish I’d read the many reviews advising that this won’t work on hand blown jars like Libbey, and I would suggest that the product description be updated accordingly. While the Libbey jars are my go-to, I have dozens of 8oz and 16oz mason jars that I have never been able to wick properly myself, even using a template, and the wick setter gives me a perfectly centered result every time. It does what it promises and I found it very easy to set up and use. Would I have purchased it if I knew it didn’t work on the Libbey jars? No. Am I pleased with its performance on my other jars? Absolutely.

Great Item

I am new to candle making. Brand new. I read a lot of the reviews. Always somebody not happy with something. I made the decision to purchase both of them. I love them, both of them. They work just fine for me. I have no issues at all. Set my wicks just fine and centered. Gosh if you break the glass more than likely your doing something wrong or applying way to much pressure. I highly recommend them. Use them properly and they will work just fine. They will put a smile on your face and make you a happy candle maker and not a grumpy old complainer.

Great tool!

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews on this about breaking jars. I decided to get it and put it to the test, well, I agree with one reviewer, you are being way too aggressive with it. I used some test jars I got at the dollar store plus some extra from here at CS and when I pushed down too hard the jars would break. If I slammed my palm down on it the jars would break, and if I didn't adjust the height like stated in the description they would either break or crack. It is not a perfect tool but it does work and centers perfectly on some jars/vessels but it does work. My advice, stop being so aggressive with it a simple height adjustment and a gentle tap/push will work, no need to slap it down or use your palm to hammer it down. The jars I used were medium thickness to really thin for my break test.

Shattered vessel on first try

Well, these do not fit the Libbey 8oz. vessels whatsoever. I thought a little pressure might have been needed to fit into the vessel, but of course, it shattered. Without it fitting in this jar this item was completely useless to me and I regret purchasing it.

Very disappointed with this product. It does not sit properly in the libby jars. So if you use those stay away from this tool.

I’m so confused by the bad reviews, especially when they are giving the bad review simply because the tool doesn’t fit their vessel… It plainly states that it will not fit all vessels. So no, your wick is not going to be centered if it doesn’t fit properly. Also, if you have vessels BREAKING when using this tool… then you again have not read the directions and set the tool to the proper height adjustment and honestly you’re just being too aggressive. You should never be hitting the handle hard enough that it could break your vessel. I use three different types of glass tumblers, and this only works on two out of the three, but let me tell you something… The two vessels it DOES fit…. AMAZING TIME SAVER AND PERFECTLY CENTERED WICKS EVERY SINGLE TIME. This tool has been a game changer for me. I can’t wait to get the multi wick setter next!

EXTREMELY Disappointing

I typically do not write reviews, but I am making an exception for this item so no other consumer makes the same mistake I did. When debating on purchasing this item, I read the very mixed-reviews. I decided however, that I would risk the purchase. Unfortunately, it did not work out. I, like many of the other customers who wrote reviews, had off center wicks. I was using the wick setter to set CD wicks in the iridescent tumblers from CandleScience. The ridges of the wick setter did not line up with the jar, and no matter what I tried, the wick was always set off-center.

While it did not happen to me, I can also see how this item would break the bottom out of any glass container.

Please please please do not make the same mistake I made - save your money and do not waste your time!!

Major Let Down

I absolutely love Candle Science; however, this product is basically useless. I was skeptical of reviews and maybe thought (hoped) I wouldn’t have these issues. This product’s ridges do not line up with my candle jar whatsoever, and no matter how hard I try to line up the jar with this, it never seems to work. Have not gotten a single centered wick placed with this product. I use the 9oz Tumbler Jar from this website as well. 1000/10 do NOT recommend.
