Rebatch soap is cp or hp soap, usually in shred form. I know Bramble Berry sells shredded soap for melting (re-batching) and yes, it can take an hr or so to melt down.
Melt and Pour is a remelt-able soap purchased as Melt and Pour, it melts at low temp quickly. Some including me do make melt and pour from scratch using a lye soap recipe then adding in additives to make it remelt-able and clear. It is not the same as cp (lye soap). Melt and Pour can be kept in a crock pot on warm if it is over approx 1/4-1/2 full to keep it at pouring temp, of course that depends on the melt temp of the m&p base.
You need to determine if you are using re-batch shreds or m&p (which many call glycerin soap). They are completely different. M&P is not considered soap
