A Kandle Heeter™ Candle Holder will not heat "up" a room! It's just a candle. The Kandle Heeter™ Candle Holder will add the heat of the candle to your room and the ambience of a miniature "fireplace". (Always use a candle in a suitable container. Do not use a pillar candle -- it will melt!) Think of it this way, ". . . it keeps the cold out . . ."


Where would the heat of the candle go if you did'nt have it in a KandleHeeter?????? :D

What I was thinking too, Zelph.

Also, I thought a terracotta pot would act as an insulator, not a conductor.

Do you think the idea is to store the heat for release later. Like rocks in the desert?

Go back and read you miss the point It heats up the bolt and washer then it heats the pots. You know you can make a oven out of them pots.

This is a very new invention, and we are all learning together how to tease the most heat possible from a candle flame. But even better than a candle is our latest invention, the GlowWarmtm Electric Candle where 10% of the energy is "wasted" as light!


:D :D The amount of wax determins the amount of heat that comes out of a candle. His new invention can't squeeze any more out :D He did manage to squeeze $30.00 out of you oops. The guy learned from Barnum and Bailey about circus life and how there is a special person born every minute :D Suspend a boat anchor over the candle to collect the heat and have a nautical theme in your room, same diff. :mrgreen:

An oven, yeah.

Dances with Mice had a doozy at Soruck made from terracotta pots. The reason is that terracotta keeps the heat inside because it's a crappy heat conductor.

I suppose the bolts do an ok job but aluminum bolts would conduct better I guess.

Allright Oops, I've got an open mind. Figure out a way to test it against a stand alone candle of the same size.

We should have fun discussing it at any rate. ;)

I think what the guy should have said was 10 percent of the energy is wasted as HEAT :)

DWM had an oven made of pots????? Sorta heavy for the backpaker :D

A smoker, actually.

Dude, you shoulda seen it. A work of art/simplicity. He scribed a paver to calibrate assorted air intakes from the bottom.

Proof was in the pudding. Well, BBQ truth be told. It was delicious! 8-)
