The Premium Mold 2.5 lb is an exceptional tool for the soap making process. The mold is high quality, very functional, and a great compact size for making 1 to 2.9 pound soap loaves. My soap loaves release from the silicone liner perfectly, and the liner cleans up quickly with soap and water. The two mold walls and clear see through lid that slide in-and-out of the mold are brilliant. The mold does a great job insulating soap during saponification and gel phase. Overall, this mold is excellent and I thoroughly enjoy working with it. I highly recommend this mold to all soapers, and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you for this great product, excellent job Nurture Soap!
