The 2415-E will allow you to do a big 20" bowl or table top. For it's size, it is also pretty fast. We owned this kiln and nick named it the "Big Mama" because it held our hand and allowed us to take our first steps into 240v kilns.Great, guiltless size! Not too big, not small at all! And, it's perfect if you want to do sinks or a very deep drop.
Designed for the artist that has a passion for all the fired arts! This kiln can have BOTH Glass Fusing and Glass Casting firing modes. The Glass mode gives the uniform top blast of heat to evenly heat the glass on the shelf with some of the side coils working to help bring the kiln to temperature. The Casting mode is all side firing that is great for the ceramics and glazes. The Casting mode will help glass casters hold at 1700°F without over heating the lid coils.
Why Upgrade from Mechanical Relays to Solid-State Relays?
Mechanical Relays, which come standard on most kilns have internal moving parts which over time wear out and need to be replaced. Kiln manufacturers recommend you replace your mechanical relays approximately every 2 years. Solid-state relays have no moving parts and last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer far better temperature control during hold times. Since solid-state relays also have no moving parts to wear out, they NEVER need to be replaced. You will notice that solid-state relays are silent. The only sound you will hear is just the reassuring hum of the heating elements. So, this factory upgrade saves you potential down time from having to wait for new relays to arrive, potential over-fires from relays sticking in the closed position, potential aggravation from having to learn how to remove and replace the mechanical relays yourself. We think this upgrade is well worth the cost and will save you time and aggravation over the life of your kiln.
Happy with Purchase
I was very please with Paul at Kiln Frog, very nice to work with deciding which unit to purchase to meet my hobby. I am new to the fusing world and so far have found that the unit will be easy to program and use. I have found many Jen-Ken youtube videos that are very helpful on programming and understanding my kiln. Looking forward to making many projects and learning the fusing world.
I was intimidated by the large size after using a small kiln for years. But after firing it a few times I'm very excited about the potential for new, larger projects.
