Bolied 2 skulls last year. Bucket did as advertised !
pulled it this year to do a skull; Ran it for 2 days before noticing water was barely warm and tissue still far from removal. Called manufacturer; 65.00 for replacement electrode or send it in for repair?
Rep. mentioned average usage was from 6 to 8 skulls . So expect to be buying replacement units!

Performs exactly as promised
I just completed my first skull and was very pleased with the results. This is more than a simple boiler. Dish detergent is added to hot water which as I gather from the instructions acts also as an electrolyte aiding in the dissolution of tissue. At any rate, very effective. Directions are thorough. Although they say skinning the skull is optional, I would say for all practical purposes it is essential. Boiling time would be vastly increased and the cleanup mess afterward would be daunting. For my conditions (skinned) in South Carolina I boiled for 10 hrs on a 40 deg day. I should've gone 12 hrs. The skull will require rinsing/picking away residual tissue. The only significant amounts are in the nasal passages and brain cavity. Compared to the old fashion way the Buck Boiler is a no brainer. Captom

Purchased the Buck Boiler for my son after seeing one used last year. We have boiled several heads over the past few years and this beats the fire out of the old fashioned way. You may need to experiment a bit to get the right mixture of soap for your type of water but it is worth the effort. Just a little tip: After using the Buck Boiler take your skull to the car wash and hit it with the pressure washer. Cleans up perfectly !!
