Improved my production rate!!

I’ve been eyeing this melter for some time but hesitate because of the price! I had a large candle order to fulfill and decided it was time to splurge! I am so happy with the purchase! It has made my candle production faster and saved me time standing over my stove mixing for hours. I would definitely recommend. The dual heating zones is perfect. This is a quality made melter.

Almost perfect

Great melter right out of the box. Because of previous reviews, I watch the temp very carefully - it seems calibrated pretty spot on, though.

I do with that the spout was a little more tapered. I have purchased a 3/4" spout to try to reign in the splashing and air that is introduced into my pouring. It's plastic, so I obviously need to find something more permanent - but since I purchased this to get through a large order in a time crunch, I will do this when time permits. I highly suggest something however, unless you have 1. a large space for wax to splash and 2. more patience than me.

Overall - if you have the need, I would recommend. I can't imagine going back to the presto pots now.

Calibrated incorrectly

I have now ruined my 2nd batch of C3 wax because melter is approx 30 degrees higher than temp setting… not worth the headache and with shipping and increase in prices I’m now out of $1300.

Worth every penny. I'm still the one and only candle maker for my rapidly growing business, and this thing has tripled my output. I will be purchasing a couple more when they come back in stock!

I love these. We currently have two and are about to order 2-3 more. Going from a double boiler system in the kitchen these things are a Godsend. They hold 60-65 pounds of wax and melt the wax in a fraction of the time of a double boiler system. And if you have the patience and time to stir the wax it melts even quicker. Not to mention they're much more energy efficient than the double boiler system that uses water and either gas/electricity for the heat. We're very satisfied with our purchase and are excited to get more when they're back in stock!

Not as advertised

This wax pot won’t even hold 60lbs of wax and is advertised as 65lbs. I now have a big mess to clean up. Disappointed in this product so far. The pounds should be corrected since it isn’t accurate

Solid, reliable, efficient melter that makes quick work of melting wax

I picked one of these wax melters up directly from the manufacturer since they were near me and did not require shipping. I had previously used presto pots and modified hotpots as wax melters, but they were unable to keep up in our process as our production volumes increased and their reliability wasn't what we needed from a business that relies on wax melters.
So we upgraded to this commercial melter, and what a difference!! We can melt a 50lb batch of soy wax in about 1 hour with this melter, where the other melters we've used would take OVER 4 hours just to melt as much. The other big benefit is that with the larger volume of melted wax we can pour more candles per batch and have less downtime waiting for the next batch of wax to melt.
This melter has really improved our efficiency and reduced our operating costs. It's been an excellent investment for us.

This was a hard purchase for us to make, but SO glad we did! Works great, holds temperature great, and made our candle making process so much easier! Worth every penny.

I had been stalking the website waiting for this to come back in stock and was so happy to snag one. First, it is a really solidly built piece of equipment and simple to use. The key with the temp is to regularly check your wax temp and adjust the dials. I mainly used just the bottom control once it was melted and at temp and then would knock it back until it was around 195, when I pour and add oil, it was at 185 and perfect. I banged out a huge order in no time - what a lifesaver from my old way of making them a pot at a time. If you are leveling up your business and need more output, this is such a smart investment.

I just received this melter (and I'm very excited about it). I rated it 5 stars because I believe that if someone knows how to fix the minor issues that they will encounter, this will be life-altering. I've been using smaller melters for quite a while, and they took my business to a new level; this melter promises to go even further.

A couple of caveats: first, pay attention to the temperature. You cannot simply set this to 185 degrees and assume that you will be good. Setting it to 185 will bring you to near boiling temps (in my experience), which of course is terrible for wax. The answer is to pay attention to it, check the temperature of your wax, and expect to turn it waaaaaayyy lower than 185 to maintain that temperature.

Second, the output/spout on this is tough. It's a huge spout, and the wax does not come out in a "stream" (hard to describe); rather, it comes out in a spray (like when you hold your thumb on the hose?)--no matter how slowly you try to pour. My husband fixed this problem on Day 1 by attaching a more narrow brass fitting/fixture/whatever you call it. It narrowed the stream, and resulted in the perfect solution! I don't understand why the manufacturer doesn't take this extra step, given the obvious use of the product. It makes no sense to me. That said, it was a pretty simple fix (the spout is threaded on the inside, so the added piece just screwed right on). It's now perfect (assuming I don't forget about the heat and boil my wax...haha).

All in all, this is a solid and beautifully built piece of equipment. I hope that my experience helps the next person (because losing a case of wax because it reached the boiling point is not cool). Thanks for a great product, Candlescience!
