    The 120'F set point from the factory is for liability reasons. 120 won't scald you.

    At my work we have 3 different settings for water heaters. 120 for anything that touches humans. 140 to kill bugs in the water therefore not having to treat it chemically. And 180 that is mainly for the dish machine.

    At home I set my water heater so I take a shower with only the hot turned on. To tell the truth I don't know exactly where that is for myself...

    Congratulations Jerry on your purchase. Pottery is fired at 1000 F to 1400 F+- I missed the memo on not putting the SWK scuttle in the microwave. I’ve been doing it for 9 years and never had a problem which includes the new SWK recently purchased.

    IF you decide to try this, you must condition the scuttle with hot water prior to nuking for 2 to 3 min so you do not shock. Soak wash cloth for pre-shave face wrap and dribble on to soap to soften. Steaming HOT water will burn.
