What is the best way to heat PCL pellets for sculpting?

As above, what is the best way to heat PCL pellets to make them soft enough for sculpting.

I’d like to avoid anything that includes a naked flame as I also use a lot of alcohol based chemicals, so there is a fire risk.

Glass/Melt temperature is ~60C.
Afik most people modelling with this just use hot water, I’ve never done it myself but seen videos of it being done. Assuming you have a kettle or electric water heater you will be fine, I imagine you could use hot air from a hairdryer or similar too. But water seems to be the usual method.
