I know Georgetown scuttles are highly regarded but it just isn't working for me. I've tried a a couple of different methods but I can barely detect any warmth in my lather.

Any scuttle must be primed before use. Not familiar with G12, but try warming it up with hot water while prepping, dump the water and refill again before making lather.

Beartrap's suggestion works well in most cases. You can also put in the microwave. Start with 1 minute on high and adjust from there.

Thanks for the suggestions. So far I've tried hot water from the tap before i jump in the showers then I refreshed it with hot water again before i started lathering. I've also microwaved the water which got the scuttle hot and hardened some of my cream but it have me slight warmth but not what I was expecting.

I fill the reservoir and bowl with hot tap water and let the brush soak ~5 minutes then empty the scuttle and refill the reservoir with hot tap water. Gives me warm lather for a 2 passer plus touch-up.

I nuke my scuttle for 40 seconds and leave the water in it. I also put a few drops of water in the outer bowl. If you use a boar brush you will get less heat and if its a badger more heat. One word of caution too much nuking will ruin the lather.

Interesting I never thought to nuke the scuttle

I'll add in the mass of the pot matters. It might be hot on the outside but the internal temp might not have risen much. A flow of hot water for a some seconds might help.- Jay
