15lt Professional Candle Making


Model: 15CDI  – 15lt Digital Temperature Controlled Electric Double Boiler

Soy Candles – Bees Wax Candle – Wax Products & more.

Please note: It is not recommended to make different products in the one unit due to cross contamination and allergy concerns, a dedicated unit to a dedicated product is best practice.

If interested, we can arrange a video to explain the double boiler method in detail, why it’s so important and is still the fastest and safest way to make quality products.

AU Wax Melters Electric Double Boilers are the single best investment a hobby, cottage or small business can make, there is no better Digitally controlled Electric Double Boilers currently available in Australia, our electric double boilers are easy to maintain and use, allow the user to do in a few hours what previously may have taken a day/days using other methods with confidence, temperature control, time Saving, improved product quality, they’re Australian Made and we are here to help and support you should you have any questions or need advice.

Most AU Wax Melters models are capable of achieving up to and some just over 90℃ in the product, we recommended product temperature of 85℃ as this in most setups is easily achieved, water boils at 100℃

Double boilers are limited to the boiling temperature of water (100℃) and are subject to some heat loss that occurs in the transfer of heat from the water through the metal chamber wall to the product, ambient (room) temperature does play a part also, to reduce these effects units are fitted with thermal body insulator wraps offering greater temperature stability, significantly reducing power consumption, ensuring optimum performance and making them safe to touch.

The Basics

  1. First fill the water jacket with demineralised water – demineralised water is a low cost product that can be purchased at supermarkets and hardware stores for around $4 for 5 litres, once filled the demineralised water is left in the unit for it’s entire life just topped up as required, demineralised water protects internal components extending unit life and improving serviceability for many years.
  2. Plug into power.
  3. Heat unit to desired temperature.
  4. Add product and heat product to required temperature.
  5. Stir occasionally until the product is stabilised at the required temperature.
  6. Make Products.

Double Boiling Method explained

An electric double boiler means the unit has a water jacket around the outside of the product chamber providing a much larger heating surface, the water jacket protects the product from high heat that is produced by the electric element when it’s heating, the water jacket thermostat controls the heating process, once heated up product is placed into the product chamber and the heated water in the jacket melts/heats/emulsifies/separates depending on the product being used from the base and the sides to the desired temperature.

The product tap passes through the water jacket and is surrounded by hot water heating it.

Product is stirred periodically to stabilise temperature before pouring.

Product temperature is maintained by the water jacket thermostat allowing the user to spend time preparing for the final product.
