I'm ready for a 5 Pound mold :p I love my crafters Choice 2.5 but I'd like to make more bars in one go. I've been looking at this 5 Pound Basic Loaf Mold https://nurturesoap.com/soap-molds/222-5-pound-basic-loaf-mold.html and the 5 lb one with silicone liner from brambleberry. I really don't want to have to line the mold myself but I will if it's absolutely better. Any recommendations? Thanks!

I have two that I use. The 7.5 lb from Nurture Soap Supplies is awesome, the silicone liner it thick and soap releases easily. I have the basic one and love it. I currently have two of them. I want to get several more in the near future. I currently use the BB 5 lb silicone liners in molds my husband built for me for them to fit in and though they are nice, they are flimsy an after time I'm finding that they stretch out. However, the liners are only 15.00 each. They release well and make a great loaf of soap.

But I would go with Nurture hands down.

I have a 2.5 lb mold from Nurture, and love it so much that when I decided I 'needed' a tall and skinny mold, I didn't hesitate to order that one from Nurture as well. I am sure you will love it!
