Immersion heater is what I use each year. Bulb does not work very fast due to loss of heat on the sides. I also have put in hot water. picked up the tote with the front end loader and shaked the crap out of it. It was the biggest mixer I have ever used. I am thinking of doing Margaretta's at the next party that way.
