Hi there dweebs0r,
At first I filled the reservoir with boiling water. Result: too hot. My soap was destroyed and I had to begin again. Just using the hot tap water (140º), I had better success. This scuttle doesn't have a plug for the reservoir, so if you soak your brush and puck, you'll have to pour all of the water out and refill the bottom to lather. I purchased the normal size scuttle, which has an opening of 5". The 1.5 Scuttle has a 6" opening and after having used my scuttle a few times, I think I would recommend you go with the larger. The spider-webbing pattern in the bowl really whips up the lather effectively. Compared to my Aesop stainless bowl, the Dirty Bird (and any scuttle) is a bit more work and I have yet to perfect my routine, but it's a beautiful piece of pottery, the colors are vibrant and, IMO, is worth the few dollars Julie charges to add to your shave den. Good luck. I will look forward to you posting a picture of your new acquisition. Biggrin

Nice. The DB scuttles work very well, holding heat as well as any available.

Thanks for the details! I am excited about mine getting here. 6 weeks is a long time to wait but it will be worth it.

Upper bowl and reservoir are ONE piece. No "rattle".

I purchased the original scuttle with the webbed design. I custom ordered a dusty blue color that was mentioned in another thread on this forum because I liked the color so much.

Thank you. It's my first scuttle and there is a learning/timing curve. also, it is really heavy when filled with water, so I am not used to lathering while the scuttle sits on the counter. Huge transition from my Aesop stainless steel bowl.
The colors are really great. Choosing was difficult.

It's a real work of art. Personal. Unique. I wish I had a larger "den" area so I could keep it on display. You need a large countertop.
I also like the fact that Julie communicates with you. You could probably design your own color scheme, she's that accomodating.
