Made in the USA, The Betterbee Bucket Blanket for honey pails is a heater which uses a patented, 120W heating element to evenly warm and decrystallize honey. It will liquify a pail of crystallized honey in a couple of days with slow, steady heat. Made of heavy vinyl, the heater is well insulated to minimize heat loss and power wastage. An internal thermostat controls the blanket temperature to approximately 125°F to prevent honey from overheating or burning. In our tests, the honey reached a uniform and steady temperature of 133°F after 24 hours of heating. If lower temperatures are desired, the heater can be unplugged when the desired temperature is obtained.
Note: Even though this heater will not burn your honey, be sure to monitor the honey to make sure you don’t exceed your desired temperature.
Hint: When using the heater, place your bucket on a wooden board or on a piece of foam insulation rather than directly on a concrete floor for faster heating.
