I ordered this mold to make some spin swirls in. My first batch of soap used 24 - 25 ounces of batter (17 ounces of oil) and produces 6 - 3.5 ounce bars. PERFECT for testing new fragrances or recipes. The mold CAN HOLD MORE Batter! I've made 2 batches of soap in the mold thus far and have had really good results from this mold. My only regret is that I only ordered one mold!
