The perfect little pottery, glass, porcelain, or PMC & ceramic kiln with big kiln features! Do it all with ease! Made to perform perfect 04-06 firings on standard household current. Plugs right into a regular outlet!
You may eventually upgrade to a larger kiln, but you'll never "outgrow" your small kiln. You'll use it forever for small pieces, test firings, and perfecting designs. This kiln is also a great kiln for fusing and slumping glass too. Taller than the Bead Annealer, perfect for tall "drop mold" projects and pot melts!
Shelves are NOT included in ceramic kilns, as you will want to order certain combinations of shelves and posts to meet your needs.
This kiln is also available in a higher fire model with 3" brick and 17a, to fire up to cone 8! You'll need a dedicated 20a circuit and plug for this version. There is NO EXTRA CHARGE for this upgrade!
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.
