Does your melter match?

Thats why I cant answer the matching ???, I just have the warming plates and I use old candle jars for the melts. Do any of you put a special thingy under the warmers? I have pot holders, but the heat has gone through 3 stacked, plus it looks ugly. Dont the electric ones get to hot to sit on furniture? What do you set them on? TIA

I have a couple "nice" melters that always stay put - they are electric/bulb. They were chosen to fit the decor.
However, I have many other tea light melters that I may place in different spots, depending on the air currents of the season. Those are random - not really designed for matching just scenting.
As for protecting underneath - I often use the tile samples that I got when I remodeled the house - I bought a few to bring home to check the colors and they work well to shield the counter/tables from heat. One issue they also help with - if I use the larger ones - once in awhile the wax pops and the spatters land on the tile.

I also like the idea of the tiles. Will have to check them out. I went to Walmart and bought the clear plates that you put candles on. They come in different sizes and have small feet on the bottom to allow air to circulate between the plate and the countertop or furniture.

So far I only have 24 watt electric plate warmers. I have had no heat damage from using them so far. I've bought them at Almost Country for their good selection and prices. I hope they restock more soon, I did empty out a decent amount of their stock
