All Wenesco melting pots utilize even convection heating designed and are built to safely melt "soft" materials that liquefy at temperatures up to 250F. These include paraffin wax, machineable wax, soy , bees wax, gels, soap, and many industrial compounds.

Convection heated melters have many important advantages over direct heat or water jacket melters.

1. There is no hot water to spill or evaporate from the jacket during use. Ours cool quickly when turned off when they are empty since only the air and the pot have to cool. Compare to water in a jacket that will retain heat for a very long time.

2. The fully insulated outside case remains cool during use which helps prevent accidental burns and conserve energy. Compare to uninsulated water jacket melters that can get very hot on the outer case.

3. Convection provides even heat like a water jacket melter. Heatup time is 1-1/2 to 2 hours. There are no hot spots like a direct heat melter. This means less danger of burning your product if you have no stirrer in the melting pot. Heater elements are easily replaced and warranted for one year.

4. The temperature control is very accurate which ensures that you will not overheat sensitive products like Shea butter. The air temperature in the jacket will never exceed your setting. Compare to direct heat melters that can have very high element temperatures on the inner surface of the pot during the melting process.

5. Convection can be used with any volume of product with no danger of burning out the heating element. They can run empty safely although this is not recommended. Compare to a water jacket melter where the element can burn out if the water level falls below the element area, since such melters rely on liquid contact to keep the element from overheating. The air circulation cools the heating element in a convection melter.

6. Wenesco melters melt your product just as quickly as direct heat melters because the air jacket heats up instantly. There is no waiting for the water to get hot.  This is a very versatile melter. You can use it for candle production, lip balms, salves, palms and coconut oil mixture for production soap making.
It speeds production since you don't need to melt the oils for each batch separately. Simply weigh out the right amount of palm / coconut oil mix, add it to the lye water, add your liquid oils, blend and pour your batch. Then you can start your next batch immediately since the oil is ready to use.

Wenesco has been manufacturing melting pots for commercial users since 1962. You can order with confidence because we stand behind our products -- all models ship with a one-year warranty (copy available on request).
