We love using this mold for testing fragrances and colors in Cold Process soap. This silicone soap mold is safe up to 230 degrees Celsius, 440 degrees Fahrenheit.
I actually have the 12-cavity version, which I had picked up on clearance from here.
This is probably one of my favorite cavity molds. The ovals add a simple elegance to the soaps, while keeping the bars at the standard 4oz size. The cavities have a slight lip, which helps keep from spilling when moving a freshly-poured batch.
Unlike the silicone molds that you find for baking, or even the loaf mold liners here, this mold is a thicker, sturdier design. This has proven to be a bit of a mixed blessing.
On the positive side, the structure keeps the soap from distorting the mold, and the thickness provides a little extra insulation, which helps keep it from cooling too fast.
The downside that I did find was that soaps that are softer when first unmolded tend to stick and don't release easily without some extra prep. A minor inconvenience, though, and easily mitigated.
Tried using this mold for cold process soap making after my recent purchase. I'd say the quality is worth the price and I am loving it!
I dont understand why this is being continued. I have bought 4 now and will buy more if they are available for a while.
This mold holds up very well. The shape produces a very professional look. It is sturdy, strong and its one of my favourites.
Really like how sturdy this mold is and the 'lip' that each cavity has yo contain the contents. I need to get more of these!
I love this mold, I bought one and had to get 2 more, very easy to use. please don't discontinue it... makes the perfect size and easy to hold soap.
