With a large 16” firing area, the Pro-Fusion Fiber 16 Square is perfect for fusing, slumping, Metal Clay, combing, roll-ups, glass painting & more! It is super flexible as you can fire directly on the bottom, or use shelf paper, fiberboard, or lava cloth. The all rigid fiber construction allows the Pro-Fusion Fiber 16 Square to heat and cools quickly and it reaches fusing temps in less than 90 minutes! And, at only 45 pounds it is lightweight, portable and ships UPS for fast delivery! Did we forget to mention that the Pro-Fusion Fiber 16 Square is designed as a clamshell. Once opened, the lid stays back to assemble projects with ease!
Want to protect the bottom-firing surface of your kiln? Now you can order a 15" square, rigidized-hard fiber shelf. This 1" thick shelf will give you even better insulation for firings and protect your kiln bottom from knicks and scrapes, giving you the smoothest surface for your work.
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.
Love it. Great for larger items. Easy to program using digital programmer.
I love this kiln!
This was my first kiln, and I’ve since bought three more. The is great for my small to medium sized projects, and they’re super easy to use and do upkeep on.
Jen Ken Profusion 16
i love my new kiln. it’s small enough for a home shop but large enough to do big projects
This my 3rd Jen Ken kiln !
I love the kiln . We picked it up at Jen Ken . Set up was easy . All my questions were answered by JenKen and kiln frog
Nice Kiln. My first fiber kiln and I love it. Nice addition to the studio.
Jen Ken Pro 16 purchase
Very pleased with my kiln and my experience purchasing from Kiln Frog. Highly recommend them! The kiln is awesome!
I love the kiln. A bit of a learning curve. My other kiln is not a Jen Ken. Paul was very helpful. Love the ease of setting the firing schedule.
Quick and easy!
Great kiln and Customer Service!
This kiln is great for small and medium size projects, as long as you don’t need greater height for slumping, of course. If you purchase it, don’t forget to turn on BOTH switches - there is one behind the lid and one on the controller itself…. Dumb me couldn’t find the paperwork to read details when finally firing it for the first time after 3 months from purchase, and had to call Kiln Frog Customer Service to see what was wrong, as the kiln would obviously not fire!! After talking to both Kiln Frog and Jen Ken, the mystery was solved and I am very happy with my purchase and the service I have received, thank you!
Great Little Kiln
I like it so much I bought a second one!
Outstanding Product & Customer Service
Second time ordering this kiln - love it enough to run two, but also wanted a solid state relay. TAP controller is easy to program and kiln periodic maintenance is easy to do, particularly with the great customer support team here and at Jen-Ken. Love the clamshell top & fast project firing. Due to pandemic, took a bit longer than usual to ship but totally reasonable timeline because of this. Wish I had a bigger studio to accommodate the 26 model, too.
ProFusion Fiber 16
I am loving my new kiln Paul was so helpful and patient on updates while awaiting my kiln. Moved up from having a Jen-Jen 16-inch octagonal for only a few months to the ProFusion 16. The square format is so much better - and even a novice like me can easily create new programs. I LOVE it!!
Love my new kiln
I’m having an amazing time with this kiln. I haven’t had any issues. Works like a charm
Jen Ken Kiln Fiber 16
Great. I bought my first Jen Ken Kiln about 11 years ago--15/6. I still have it and it still works! Love Jen Ken Kilns.
LOVE my kiln. It is my first kiln and the programs are great and easy. I am enjoying filling it and experimenting and making some beautiful pieces. Kiln Frog was wonderful to deal with. My only negative is the instruction manuals. I use about 2-3 pages and the rest is way over my head. Once I called and was told how to start it I was good to go... instructions could be simpler and more easily stated. All in all I am 100% happy
It took about twice as long to get the kiln as the website indicated but that is on JenKen not Kiln Frog. The kiln with the Tap controller and solid state relay is fantastic. This is my first kiln so nothing to compare it too but it is very easy to use and the pre-programmed schedules are great to work through to get to know your kiln. I’ve dropped the temp on a few of them by about 10 degrees to get the effects I want but overall it is great. I couldn’t find a stand I liked so went with a stainless steel table from uline. The only surprise to this complete newbie was that the elements are encased in glass tubes which confused me as I thought we were melting glass. A quick question to a forum explained that it was leaded glass so had a higher melt point. Fantastic starter kiln.
