I'm a relatively new soapmaker - I tried cold process just once and it was kind of a disaster. I then happened across a webpage (geocities site - I've included the link) with instructions for hot process soapmaking in a slow cooker (crock pot). I've tried that a few times now and it works great for me! I really recommend it. Your soap will harden in less than a day and can be used immediately - it doesn't have to cure like CP soap. When you put it in your molds it will be goopy - not liquid like CP so that may post some limitations for fancy soaps, but it's perfect for me.

Perhaps your burnign problem was because you were working directly on a stovetop? I think the crock pot probably keeps a mroe consistent temperature. I've heard a double-boilder might work as well thoguh I've never tried that.
