Karen: use a hot glue gun
Please use a hot glue gun for heating glue.
The gun uses a continuous-duty heating element to melt the plastic glue, which the user pushes through the gun either with a mechanical trigger mechanism on the gun, or with direct finger pressure. The glue squeezed out of the heated nozzle is initially hot enough to burn and even blister skin.
Hi Karen. If you are trying to remove glue, use a heat gun. You can get it at any home improvement store. Be sure to not hold it in one spot very long. Wave it back and forth.
i am so sorry for the confusion - I was watching HOMETALK TV wreath tutorial and he uses a skillet looking item with melted glue and I like it better than a glue gun
I think you are referring to a glue pot. I've seen them used, but, never tried one.
I think this question relates to a specific post.
Hi Karen, I would be careful what I put the glue in, it could damage your electric skillet. Be safe and stay well. Microwave the glue on full power in 20-second intervals.
Depending on your microwave and amount of glue, you should at least be able to partially melt the sticks. If there are still solids, microwave the glue for an additional 20 seconds after stirring it with a craft stick or plastic spoon.

Yes, there are little ones made for that, but any old electric skillet will work. Here is an inexpensive one: https://amzn.to/2xlkmhH
Hello. They make little pots for melting hot glue for dipping purposes I have one that’s probably 20 years old. Here’s a link that might be helpful to see if there’s some options you would like to consider.
here is an idea for one of these items
Thank you all so much - you are too sweet. Bless you
Hi there, I just saw one on this DIY list. https://www.marketplace.hometalk.com/nicksseasonaldecor-shop4?utm_campaign=week21_nick&utm_medium=storepage_ht
You could use a double boiler to water in the bottom pot and pot on top with glue
Hi Karen: You can line a small pot with foil and warm your glue in that, or if you have a chocolate melting pot, line that with foil, or, if you have an electric flying pan or griddle, you can line that to pour your glue into. I bought a small electric glue pot from JoAnn's years ago, don't know if they still sell them though. Good luck and be careful.
For animal glue, my father would use old cooking pot with boiling water, over which he would use an old paint kettle suspended into the water with a stick going through the handle of the paint kettle........Best wishes.
