Who would think that you need a specialized pot for candle making? Well its not absolutely necessary but it does come in handy and can be used not only in candle making but in melt and pour soap making.
The pouring pot is one of a two-part system that makes up a double boiler. A double boiler is a series of two pots, one fits within the other while the larger is often shallow and is used to hold water.
The shallow watered pot is at the bottom and is heated to cause the water to boil. The other pot, in this case the pouring pot is placed in the hot water which heats the pouring pot and melts the wax or melt and pour soap.
Once the wax or soap has been melted the pouring pot has a spout that makes it easy to pour the wax into a container or the melted melt and pour soap into its mold.
A double boiler can be made out of any type of pot however for ease of use and functionality its best to have the right tool for the job.
