    Personally I don't like them, but know a ton of people who do. For me the results are way to inconsistent to be of any real value to me. Same wax, size wick, scent, etc., same everything and if I make 5 candles, get 5 different results. It's too much for me. Some people I know can get them to work. However, I don't have the stamina to keep trying.

    They are good for slow burning and tend to crackle. I like them for the crackle effect, but at 1502 we are only using cotton wicks.
