This melting pot is a convienient small capacity pot that is suitable for those starting out in white metal/pewter casting to experienced modelmakers who only require small batch quantities of molten alloy. The temperature is thermostatically regulated between 200-450c. An ordinary electric cooker does not go more than 320c which is barely enough. By heating the metal an extra 50-70c the metal gets much more fluid and flows into the intricate parts of a mould and you will get much better castings. It is also much more energy efficient and uses only 250w against an electric cooker 1200-2000w. It melts the alloy in less than half the time compared to a standard electric cooker. The pot is titanium plated so alloy will not stick to it
Capacity: 850g - 1.25kg depending on casting alloy used.
