I burn lots of scented candles. When they get too low to burn, I use them on a candle warmer. Instead of buying a candle warmer for $10, I bought 3 coffee cup warmers at the local thrift store for 99 cents each. One has an automatic shut-off so I don't have to remember to turn it off.

Not a good idea! Coffee warmers are a fire hazard when used with any candle wax. These coffee warmers are not regulated to maintain a low consistent temperature needed to melt candle wax. If wax and fragrance reach a high temperature, you will have a fire from the heat. Fragrance has low flash temperatures. This is why they make candle warmers specifically for candles. The heat is regulated and much safer. DO NOT use coffee warmers for any wax products, if you do, you are liable for a fire. .99 cents isn't worth the risk. (02/11/2006)

You can buy a candle warmer at wal-mart. They cost about $5.00. They are made to warm candle wax (02/11/2006)
