I have a solar wax melter, only melts during peak heat months. I can melt in a crock pot all year round. A crock pot does a faster and sometimes better job too. The crockpot is also much cheaper and reliable that a solar model (even if you build it yourself).Cheap crock pot from yard sale, craigslist, Salvation Army store, Goodwill, etc.
I use the one which does not have the hot water jacket. The element and the wax and water are in the tank togetherWill it melt cappings without the water as per the write-up? Will it melt blocks of wax that come from a solar melter?
