    Throw a couple “kill shot” ingots in it to start the cooling process faster.

    And put a fan on the whole pot, then maybe you wouldn’t need the cool down step which does seem like a silly design

    My SAECO pot of 40+ years finally died. Wife says go ahead, get a bottom pour pot, meaning the Lyman. I can lap the seat to reduce dripping - did valve work in the Navy. Not sure I want to invest that much money in a device, but she tells me I'd push her to upgrade if her current sewing machine died. Being retired doesn't make life easier.

    Will say THANK YOU to everyone on this group of threads who pointed out the cool down cycle of the Easy-Pour. Was about ready to pull the trigger on one, now I'm back considering spending twice as much for the Lyman Mag 25.
    There is no such thing as an ex-Submariner.

    It's darkest just before it gets darker.

    You know sometimes the answer stares you in the face. That is a great idea. I'll give it a go and see what it changes. Thanks!
