    Basic, Premium, or Handle Mold?

    We often get asked about the difference between basic and premium molds.

    Basic Molds:

    • Have a wooden box to support the liner.
    • Have holes in the bottom of the wooden mold to push out the liner.
    • Do not have a lid.

    Premium Molds:

    • Have a wooden box to support the liner.
    • Have a clear lid to view soap as it gels and prevent soda ash.
    • Have grooves in the wooden mold box that the lid slides into, creating a seal between the soap and outside air. This is the main method of preventing ash.
    • Have removable sides for easy removal of the liner.

    Handle Molds:

    Handle molds come in basic and premium styles. They provide the ultimate ease of use when making soap. The lip of the liner surrounds the wood mold and keeps it clean. The handles on the liner allow for very easy removal from the mold. 

    However, the sides of the wooden mold box are not removable in the premium style, and the basic style does not have holes in the bottom of the box for removal. This is because you can simply lift up by handles and the liner pops right out! Another benefit of our handle molds is the silicone is thin yet sturdy, make soap a breeze to remove from the liner.

    If you do not gel or cover your soaps, basic molds are best. They can be covered with cling wrap to prevent ash. If you prefer to gel your soaps and want more ease of use, premium molds are ideal. Handle molds offer the best of both worlds in premium and basic styles.

    Mold Sets:

    A mold set is any mold available as a full set. For example, basic molds come with a liner and wood support box and premium molds come with a liner and a box and a lid. Mold sets are all the components you need in a mold at a lower price then buying them separately.

    🧮 Lye Calculator

    How to calculate the volume of a mold:

    1. L x W X H = ? X .4
    2. Example: 18 x 3.5 x 2.5 = 157.5 x .4 = 63 ounces of oils
    3. This is the maximum amount of oils that can be used with this size mold.
    4. Use any mold and calculate the max amount of oils the same way.

    Really liked it!

    Very cool mold. Love the handles. I cut 9 bars 1 inch each. (Hot process) Thank you

    So handy

    These are so handy to use and the handles make them super easy to pull out of the mold. I did notice (it also states this in the description) that the amount of soap you get is slightly less in this mold compared to the ones without the handles but still works wonderfully for smaller batches. Highly recommend

    This is a fantastic mold! The handles are so helpful for getting the liner out of the wood, and the way the silicone covers the top of the wood means that cleaning up spills is easier than ever!

    Loving the 2.5 lb mold!

    This is a user friendly mold that is just the right size for a smaller batch of soap. It makes 8 bars. The bar size is perfect, same as their larger loaf molds. It is easy to unmold your soap due to the handles on the ends of the liner.

    Nice mold

    I like to try new products. This is 3.5 inches wide. I wish it was a bit narrower.

    Oakley Acres (Dallas, US)
    2.5 lb handle mold

    Worked just as expected! As others have stated it is easy to get your soap out after the molding process and is also very easy to clean. The soap “loaf” came out in a very uniform shape and the handled liner had no deformations. Will be purchasing more soon.

    Love the handles!

    This is my new favorite mold! I love the handles! The quality of the mold is excellent. I also like that it is wider than most molds I have used.

    Nice handles

    The handles on the liner are nice. Maybe one day there will be handles on the mold itself:-) It was also nice that the liner covered the wood on the top sides of the mold. I have only used it once, but it worked very well.
