Homebrew Wax Melter

I bought a Presto Electric Kitchen Kettle for $30 at Amazon. Normal people use it to cook food. I use it to melt candle wax.  As shown in the photo, I added a little modification. I drilled a hole and installed a ball valve on the side of the Presto for pouring liquid wax into a container.

There are other ways to melt wax. One can use a pot and an electric burner. But that’s two separate pieces of equipment. The Presto combines a pot and a burner into one unit, which is very convenient. Professional wax melting equipment can cost around $1000, which is way beyond my budget.

I’m pleased with this solution and works well.
