Now that we have a great list of kilns that will all work on 120v household current, we need to make sure your plug matches your receptacle. 

Most homes in the U.S. are wired with a combination of 15-amp and 20-amp, 120-volt circuits. Because 15-amp receptacles (5-15R) can be used with 20-amp circuits, most of the receptacles you see in homes are the standard 15-amp variety, with two slots and a U-shaped grounding hole. Twenty-amp receptacles (5-20R) have a horizontal slot branching off one of the vertical slots. Plugs designated as 20 amp will not fit into 15-amp outlets. 

The final important piece of information when looking at 120v kilns is amperage. You will need to be certain you have a breaker that meets the amperage requirements for your kiln as most of the 5-20R kilns require a dedicated circuit. Without a 20 amp breaker, your kiln will not reach the desired temperatures to fuse glass. Older homes, apartments, and mobile homes will have 15 amp breakers. Please check your breaker box carefully prior to ordering. Kiln Frog, LLC cannot be held responsible for kilns ordered that cannot operate at full temperatures due to electrical issues on site.

 If you have questions, we always recommend talking to a licensed electrician.
