    User features:

    The Candle Maker +Plus takes care of the heating and stirring of your ingredients to deliver the perfect candle every time (subject to ingredients and environment). The intuitive display alerts you when it’s time to add ingredients and again when your candle is ready to pour. There’s no rush and no worries, The Candle Maker will guide you through the process and it will even wait for you if you’re busy elsewhere around the house; it’s a very safe and easy way to make great quality candles at home. The +Plus offers all the ease of the Crafter Edition but with many added features;

    • Small batch mode: This mode is the perfect for melting smaller quantities of wax and makes up to 2 medium sized candles in 20 minutes.
    • Large batch mode: This mode is for making use of the supplied 1 liter jug to double the batch size. Makes up to 4 medium sized candles in 40 minutes.
    • High heat mode: Take the temperature up a notch and easily melt harder waxes such as paraffin, palm and beeswax (results may vary).
    • Variable “play” mode. This mode gives you the ability to ‘toggle’ forward and back through the various phases of the candle making process. For example you could use your own thermometer and fast forward when your desired temperature is reached. After starting this mode by pressing button 3 you can press button 3 again at any time to move forward one stage or button 1 to move back one stage.  A creative mode where the possibilities are endless!

These pre-set temperatures work perfectly with our own wax and also deliver good results with most of the common brands on the market. We display the pre-set temperatures for your information and whilst most wax brands will have differing melt and pour recommendations we encourage you to try our pre-sets first, moving to variable mode if you need to. Suitable for the following waxes: Soy container wax, soy tart and melt wax, soy blends (including coconut), palm, paraffin, beeswax. The unit is also designed for adding fragrance and colorants. We also find that it works well with some of the more popular melt’n’pour natural soap bases. We cannot vouch for the finish of your candle when using ingredients other than our own and we cannot offer technical support for other ingredients; your own testing is always required.

    Care of your Candle Maker

    Always wash the jug with a warm soapy water after every use, rinse and dry. Once the heating element has cooled sufficiently, wipe it down with a damp cloth. If a spillage occurs on the heating element be sure to clean it quickly to prevent any liquid enter the internals of the unit. Beeswax and other hard waxes can become sticky and clog the stirrer, please take extra care when washing the pitcher by always removing the magnetic stirrer during cleaning and using hot – near boiling – water to melt away all residue. WARNING! NEVER IMMERSE THE MAIN UNIT IN WATER OR IN A DISHWASHER

    1. taranathan5

      Fantastically easy to make a couple of candles at a time, a good way to test fragrances instead of doing a whole large batch.

    2. Mark

      It’s predictable that these Candle Makers sold out so quickly. Anybody who has used one will be instantly hooked. I bought my latest one for personal use at home after buying two units over a year ago for hobbies activities at my school. Got a bit jealous of the kids having so much fun making classy gifts for adult family members. Candle-making is a great hobby and these units make it so simple and enjoyable
