  1. Yes. Double boiling defeats the whole purpose of having a presto in the first place. Not sure where the poster is getting debris out of the pot. Never had such a problem. Never had to clean my pot out either since I don't use the same pot for different waxes. When I'm finished for my project, I let the wax cool completely, cover it up with the lid to keep the dust out, and when I'm ready a few months later for the next time, I just warm it up and go again.
  2. I guess that helps testing different waxes. But I will never do double boiling. Way too much hassle. I only need one wax and it goes directly into the Presto pot.
  3. They distribute both soy and paraffin wax according to their website. https://www.kerax.com/applications/candle-manufacture/
  4. I personally never empty my Presto pot. When it gets low, I just add more wax to keep it at least 1/3 full all the time. I have heated, poured, left it sit for weeks on end with the lid on to keep out the dust, reheated, and poured again. I have never noticed any quality loss or problems with the wax. If I were to use more than one type of wax, I would want to have a separate Presto pot for the other wax so I would not have to be concerned about waxes getting mixed together between cleanings. I have not found it necessary to completely empty or clean mine at all over the past six or eight months. I have experienced no problems so far at all.
  5. Well, if this story doesn't warm your heart, you just don't have one ! It really reinforces my faith in humanity. And that new label is gorgeous !!
  6. Net weight in ounces AND grams according to US labeling laws I hear.
  7. From what I have seen, $1 to $1.50 per ounce seems to be the acceptable retail price range. Depending on variables such as type of wax, fragrance, jar type, among other things.
  8. Oh...THAT spider...lol...I I thought you meant the first picture of the second series which very much appears to be a huge spider in the lower left hand corner. I never noticed the spider attached here that you were referring to.😀😀😀😀😀
  9. I blew up the picture of the supposed spider. I think it is just the way the evergreen material attached to the holiday jar is pictured over the underlying doily which appears to be spider legs.😂😂😂🐛 🐜 🐞

Where you live will make the biggest difference due to shipping costs. I am in Pennsylvania, and I see that Candlewic and also Candlesandsupplies both sell the gel wax. Looks like it can be bought in low, medium, and high density. Hopefully that means more to you than it does to me. I hope this is helpful to you !!!
  11. These are the Vicky pics I see of gel double glasses candles described above.
  12. It is my hope that she WOULD find this site as she would learn so much helpful information. I wish her all the best, as I do for everyone on this board. There is no intention on my part to be mean spirited in any way. It would be great if she were here to tell us if there is a method to her system. I would be more than open to learning from her if that were the case. But nothing whatsoever is intentionally mean-spirited by me.
  13. I can't imagine anyone can last with a business model like that.
  14. Maybe you can find something out from the personal email listed in the post above. uncledoondie@yahoo.com
