The new 1 litre/34fl oz larger jug/pitcher has been designed to be used with the original candle maker and fits perfectly into the cradle.The newly designed spout ensures a clean and easy pour. To use the larger jug at maximum capacity, simply run through phase one of the melting process twice.
Feed in the flakes: Tip your soy wax flakes into the jug and press the flashing start icon on The Candle Maker unit as normal – if you are planning to melt the maximum capacity of 1 litre of liquid wax you will need to feed the wax flakes into the jug as it melts. Do this by filling the jug with wax flakes all the way to the top, press the start button and keep an eye on the wax as it melts, keep feeding more flakes every few minutes.
Approximately 830 grams of soy wax flakes will melt to 1 Litre of liquid wax.
Run phase one twice: If melting the full 1 Litre of wax you will need to run through the initial melt phase twice, this is because the unit is programmed to melt up to 400 grams of wax to the correct temperature for adding fragrance and you are now melting 830 grams. Once phase one is complete and the fragrance light starts flashing check to see if all the wax has melted; if not remove the jug wait 5 seconds and then replace on the cradle and pus the start button again.
Once the unit reaches the fragrance flashing icon for the second time your wax should all be melted at at the right temperature and you can then proceed as normal to the next stage of adding in your fragrance and pressing the flashing icon to proceed.
