Description 

4" Silicone Loaf Mold: The flexibility of silicone makes unmolding a small loaf quick and easy.  The inside of this mold has a high gloss finish giving your soap that smooth, professional finish. The sides are re-inforced to prevent bowing, but we have found that they sometimes curve ever so slightly. We think it's virtually impossible to see the curve of the loaf - especially once you've cut your soap into bars.

Tip: If making Cold Process soap in this (or any) silicone mold we recommend adding Sodium Lactate to your recipe. This will help to harden up your soap so that there won't be any dents or finger marks from unmolding the soap.

The mold holds 20 ounces when completely filled to the top but we reccomend keeping your recipes to 16 ounces and under for ease-of-use.

Mold Dimensions: 2 5/8" (Height) X 3 1/2" (Width) X 4" (Length)

Cavities: 1

Capacity: 20 oz

Like this mold for solid color soaps
I would love this mold if it were slightly longer. I have a soap cutter that cuts perfect 1" bars. Because this mold is precisely 4", it will give me precisely 4 - 1" bars. There is no room to cut the ends off on each side, exposing a beautiful swirl. So, I only use this mold for solid color soaps. I had wanted to buy the 10" silicone mold but decided not to for this same reason. I really like to swirl and play with lots of colors in my soaps. It's a bummer, because the wooden loaf molds my husband made for me hold 4.5 lbs. of soap. If I want a small amount of soap to use up some FO, this little mold would be great. No swirling allowed, though. Also, you definitely have to add sodium lactate to make the silicone mold work well. That is an added cost, which could make a difference if keeping costs down is a concern. I love not having to cut freezer paper and folding to fit my wooden loaf mold, though. Pros and cons to both.

Too Fab!
I bought this to try out new recipes that I'm including in a soap making cozy mystery series that I'm writing. One pound batches make for an easy conversion to larger recipes. My soap comes out easy (I pop it in the freezer overnight) and there's no bowed out edges to trim. It cleans up great. Wish there were a one pound slab mold. Hint, hint.

Great Molds
After numerous batches of CP soap in this 1 lb loaf molds, I'm still happy with how well it performs every time..holding its shape, releasing the soap block easily, cleaning up easily. it's a convenient size for experimenting with new recipes. The silicone does retain trace amounts of fragrance but it's not proven to be a problem in the next batch of soap. I bought several on sale...a great product!

Love this little mold
Before I got this I had a small one pound cardboard mold for test batches that had to be lined every time. No more lining! I use this for hot process, so it unmolds easily for me. It does retain scents somewhat, but that's not a big deal to me. If you slice it 1", you get 4 nice size 5oz bars.

Durable, well made, perfect for beginner
Just like the title says, I made my very first batch of soap and it was a dream! The thick silicone doesn't bend and bulge, the sharp, shiny corners make a professional looking bar. It takes a little bit of working to get it out of the mold I'll admit, but nothing that would make me not recommend it. The small size is perfect for testing out fragrances, colors, anything you need really.
