Is your's the 5 gallon can, or the bag-in-the-box (BiB) variety?

Cretor's sells both - a heating iron for the can and a warming bin for the box variety.

Check with your conc supplier on these items.

good luck-monte

I have never, in 24 years of exhibition, seen a coconut oil warmer like that.

When I did have coconut oil, we had EXCALIBUR...

not seen one like that either , however it looks like the warmers homebrew makers put around their brewing drums , might pay to check a brew shop, not sure how hot they get.

We use to have a pair of those warmers. They're basically a bandclamp with a heating element. You put them around the bucket (one near the top & one near the bottom).

Get yourself an engine block/oil pan heater - available in any automotive store. They're cheap and magnetic and will stick to the outside of the bucket. Not the fastest, but they work. Get two and put one on each side if you like.

The other option is get a Hot Rod. They're available from any decent restaurant supply store. They like a sword you plug in. You just plunge it into the oil and it melts. They're more expensive, but work well.
