Fastest easiest way to melt base
I need to be able to melt 5-6 lbs of base at one time and was wondering what the best way to do it is. I've been using the microwave, but only 2 lbs at a time and it's taking forever to melt.
Question #1- can you melt base in a crock pot, and if so, how long would it take to melt 5 lbs. of white base?
#2- what about a double boiler...how long does that take?
#3- If you CAN use a crock pot to melt it, do you have to stir alot, or can you leave it alone, do other things and then come back to melted base?
#4- any better suggestions???
Thanks alot...I'm stressing...;)
