This is amazing

I like this mold. Other than the dimpling on the outside of my soap in a couple places, it worked perfectly. No leaks, no huge seams, literally no problems even with tapping it on the table to release air. Perfect!~

Works Perfectly with clamps

I don't make a lot of round soaps but this little mold works perfectly. You MUST clamp the sides. I use 3 large binder clips on each side and have zero leaks. Soap unmolds beautifully.

Worked like a charm

It's great not needing to line a cylinder mold or push out the soap like most other cylinder molds! I had read the suggestion to clip the mold. The clips made it wide enough to use a bucket to stabilize it upright, plus the bucket would contain any leaking (but there was none). The result was nice round soaps (though you can see the two seams). I had no trouble unmolding at ~24h, even though I did not use any hardener such as sodium lactate. I did not insulate or gel my soap. Also, because only the top side of the top soap has contact with air, there was less soda ash than usual for my soaps. I found it challenging to keep the soap cylinder loaf stabilized when cutting it; so a multi-bar cutter would help a lot. This size soap fits a 2-part soap box made from two sheets of 6"x6" paper.

very nice

I rated this 5 stars but I had the advantage of the collective wisdom of all the other reviews. I found the best way to seal it is to seal the bottom first and then both sides at the same time-one hand on each side. Then go over it again to make sure it is sealed. This mold fits perfectly into a half gallon milk or juice carton. If it leaks the carton can serve as the backup mold. I did not have any leaking at all. I made a milk and honey soap so I lined the mold with bubble wrap to get a honeycomb effect. That made it unmold very easily. I added honey to half the batch (honey makes the soap a light brown color) and I did an in the pot swirl. I did get a very nice circular swirl. The finished soap is not a perfect circle but very few people will notice or care about that. The second time I used it I did not line it but I did use a recipe that tends to harden well (coconut oil 50%, rice bran oil 40%, sesame oil 10%). This one also unmolded easily after 24 hours.

worked great

I hesitated to buy this because the reviews were spotty but I'm glad I tried it! I made a batch of cp soap with a fairly high percentage of hard oils and poured it at thin trace. I had put the mold in a pot and wrapped it with a thick towel to insulate it for gel which gave it a little extra support so I didn't knock it over. I did not try to thump it or shake out any bubbles. I set a bit of cardboard on top and wrapped the towel around it and set it away for the night. When it was hard enough, it unmolded easily and washed up with a little soapy water. The soap has a few tiny air bubbles around the edges on the bars that were closer to the top (where the soap was starting to thicken and not pour so easily) but I think they will polish off with a little rub with a towel later. I'm eager to use this to crank out my shaving soap pucks. I've been putting them off because I hate wrestling with the PVC pipe!
