The tixor malam wax pot is designed for batik work and other arts rquiring melted wax. The graduated temperature dial allows fine adjustments in order to keep the desired wax temperature.We have tested this pot successfully for use in workshops using both low melting soy wax, and high temperature traditional malam from Java Indonesia. It’s no-spill stability makes it practical for tabletop use. Six openings in the no-drip rim enable the wax to flow back into the cup rather than down the sides. The melting cup is 0.3 litre. These pots have been converted for use with N. American electrical current (3 prong plug).
