Mine has been suctioning to the bottom of my crock-pot?? Like a suction cup ,its kinda hard to move around?? I do short burst & hand stir 2 like most of you but I'm not sure why mines doing this??Oh & I do light trace so its not like the mixture is thick or heavy.Does anyone else have this issue?? I somehow doubt it cause only things like this happen to me..lol. Like the soap gods don't want me to make a great batch of soap..I'm a newbie myself..
