Our small aluminum pouring pitcher holds 1 lb. of wax making it perfect for small batches and tealights. This wax melting pot features a plastic handle that stays cool for easy handling, and a tapered spout for precise pouring.

Cleaning Tip: For easy cleaning post-candle making, remelt the leftover wax with a double-boiler setup. Then, carefully wipe the melted wax out with a papertowel. If there's any residual wax or fragrance left, just spray the inside out with rubbing alcohol and wipe it down again.

One minor change would make a world of difference

I've had these pouring pots for years now. They work great and hold up great. The one problem I have with them is that they are straight-walled, not tapered, so you can't stack the pots inside each other. I have 8 small pots and two large and they take up SO. MUCH. SPACE. If these were just tapered ever so slightly, you could save your customers like 80% of the space these things are currently taking up.

Other than that - these are great! ☺️


I was excited to receive this - it's the perfect size for a small batch and much easier to clean than the 4lb pots, but the pouring spout is awful.
Pour too slow and it drips down the front, pour too fast and it gushes out creating air pockets I have to go back and fix. I'm sticking with the 4lb pot.


Perfect for Tealights and Tester Jars

I use this for my tea light batches , as well as, pouring my tester candles. Its easier to handle and control with smaller amounts of wax. Love it. Also the handle is super sturdy.


Question please?

Can I use this small pitcher to make a (3 candles) each one is 8oz ?? I calculated and found that I will need to start with a (one and half lb) of wax to be able to make 3 (8oz) candles .. so???
Thank you very much

This pitcher holds about 1 pound of wax, for making larger batches that would need more than that, you may want to look at our Large Pouring Pitcher as a better alternative.

Hi! I love the pouring pitching. I wonder if I did something wrong. I was using it as a double boiler and it completely discolored the lower half of my pot. Is it not intended to be used this way? Just wondering. Thanks!

As expected

I like to use smaller batches. Works great for 1lb wax batch.


Bought several of these all working well!

Great for making 1 lb candle batches. Just the right size for pour tealights!

Better than expected, no pouring issues

I was hesitant to buy this because of the poor reviews, but it's working well for me so far, and I'm glad I got it. Mine does come to a point for pouring, although not as much of a point as my large pouring pitcher. I had no trouble pouring from this and didn't have anything spill or drip down the side. It's small, but it's the perfect size for test batches making only a few candles. I melted 8oz with no trouble, and it seems like this pitcher could hold more than 16oz wax. I'd recommend this as a great pitcher for smaller amounts of wax, it is faster and easier to use than a large pitcher (for small batches).


Ok Pitcher

The pouring spout needs to be improved to more of a point. It's not easy to pour and if not careful it runs down the pitcher.

Terrible spout

I am not one to go out of my way to bash a product, but this pitcher is terrible! I ordered 2, and they are both just as bad so I know I didn't just get a bad one. The pitcher does not have a pointed tip where you can slowly pour the wax out, it makes a huge mess everywhere. These are going straight in the trash!



I was wondering why my wax was spilling when I pour. I discovered that my pouring tip part on the pot, was round & not "pointy" like my other pot I bought (not from CS). So I just "readjusted" that part. Now, it's easy to pour

Nice little pot

I love this pot. It makes making candles and tarts very easy. I don't have to wait forever for the wax to get to temp to add color and FO. Cools down quick too for pouring. Color chips don't stick to It all either.
