Lightweight with a large handle, the Chillpepper is designed specifically to suit the needs of the avid bead maker. With a 2" thick Non-Carcinogenic Fiber Blanket and a Stainless Steel encased coil, it will maintain a true temp all day. This kiln will not fuse glass or fire Metal Clay. You can preset programs to allow you to anneal several COEs without reprogramming. Our bead making instructors insisted we had several of these in the classroom as they are very reliable. The Chillpepper is great as you can plug this it anywhere and you're ready to go!
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.
