Our 5 pound premium soap mold holds 63 ounces (3.94 pounds) of oils maximum. It will hold approximately 5 pounds of finished soap. If this mold is filled to the very top, it can yield up to 5.9 pounds of soap before cure or cook. Results will vary depending on your unique soap recipe.
Any liners purchased between 4/01/18 and 9/19/2018 will be about 1/16th inch shorter than our current batch of silicone liners. Liners purchased between these dates measured 17 7/8" and our current batch measures a full 18". We have made the wooden mold boxes to fit accordingly. There may be up to 1/16" gap between the liners and our current wooden mold boxes.
This mold always produces a perfect gel. No more partial gels like you get with a silicone mold. The wooden mold insulates perfectly without having to be wrapped in a blanket or placed on a heating pad. If it starts to get too warm, you can remove the top and/or wooden sides. Just ordered another one of these!
The best mold, Ever!!!
I purchased this mold, trying to run away from silicone mold disasters... Extremely pleased i am with this purchase. Telling this, from the bottom of my heart. I own multiple molds from silicone to HDPE, and let me tell you, i would never recommend any other than this. Grab one, and i assure you, you will be very pleased; if do things correctly. I did unmold next day using high percentage of Olive, and everything was 100% perfect 👍🏻
I've bought several 5 lb loaf molds. They are the perfect size for me. 18 - 1 inch bars in every batch. I just love these molds. The silicone and wood is a great combination that allows me to gel my soaps and get great color. The clear lid also helps the insulation. The removal of the sides also helps. I've been doing more milk soaps and when I worry about overheating, I can leave them on my counter and remove the sides to allow the soap to breathe.
This is my 2nd Premium 5 lb loaf mold. I just love these molds. The way the sides slide off of the mold the silicone slides right out. The clear lid protects the top so I don't have to worry about anything hitting it an ruining my dedigns. Added plus is being able to see my soap through the clear lid. Perfectly desiged molds!
I have had mine for a few years now & it is still in Excellent condition. Easy to use, both sides slide out to remove loaf.
