Mixer FAQ:

Mixing in Pot Tipper

Question:
How fast do you mix in a Pot Tipper, and what do you use?

Answer:
I am assuming you want to mix CP (cold processed) soap. Trace times on CP soap can take a long time, as you know. We recommend our Pot Whipper, which has Nitrile, flexible blades which become more aggressive as the speed picks up by creating a fluttering action. The blades are cupped to create a downward pull, which creates a faster, more thorough mix and makes it easier to pull in additives, herbs, etc. This shape also eliminates air bubbles common to paddle blades and mixers not made for stirring soap.

You must mix at speeds above 1200 rpm, or it will take you a long time to reach trace, especially an all olive oil soap. Actually, 1500 to 1800 is best, and always stir at a 10° to 15° degree angle. You should reach trace in 5 to 7 minutes with a palm, coconut, olive base.


Pot Whipper Trace Time

Question:
You say on your site that the Pot Whipper will reduce my tracing time and give me a better blend of ingredients. Can you give me an idea as to what my tracing time might be using the Pot Whipper?

Answer:
Generally speaking, your tracing time will be between 5 to 7 minutes, depending upon your batch.
