Hi all

Just had to show the first use of my wax melter, before I get wax on it.

This is the first time I have ever had turkey for Christmas!

I'm following the Nigella method. :xmas-smiley-016:

Next time I will be using it for wax. Merry Christmas all.

I dropped heavy hints to family that I wanted one of them for Christmas. I am jealous. Not long to wait for Santa now. K

LOL no I'm just using it for brining at the moment :) P.S. even the brine tastes great! so many herbs spices also the magic ingredient honey.

It will be used for wax processing later on in the year.

It certainly is. I thought that it was a quail in there at first. The pot must be the size of a modest dustbin. LoL

Yes, though not used it as yet.
I was awaiting the sugar thermometer that Santa bought me.

That's a lot of pot to be presiding over with your thermometer if things go wrong Steve . . .
Good luck.

Definitely not a prototyping pot. :)

Used mine for the first time today.

I would strongly recommend that you use a thermometer of some sort to 'calibrate' the settings a bit. There is also a reasonable amount of over-run on the thermostat. So long as this is known, it should not be a problem.

Excellent!

I bought one too! I haven't opened mine yet but I am also going to use it to melt wax. I wasn't too sure if it would work for wax melting when I bought it. so told myself i could use it to cook hams in.

Has anyone actually ever used it to melt wax? A bit worried it may get bunged up.

Just a thought, will you be able to sell turkey flavoured candles to veggies?
