The Xpress E-12A comes with the Genesis Mini Touch Screen Controller mounted in the kiln base (instead of a side switch box) to save table space. The kiln includes a door safety switch that turns off the element when the door is opened. The controller automatically resumes firing when you close the door.
The Xpress E-12A heating element, exposed in dropped, recessed insulating firebrick grooves, is easy to replace if ever necessary. The 2 1/2” thick firebricks store plenty of heat for slow cooling through the glass annealing range. For small glass pieces such as jewelry, you can anneal without having to turn the element back on during cooling. (If extra heat is necessary to anneal large pieces, that is easy. Just program a slow cooling segment in Ramp-Hold mode.) The firebricks store heat for quick temperature recovery after removing a copper enameling piece.
The thermocouple is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life. A switch on the front panel turns off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use.
Unlatch and open the door with one hand; the latch operates so smoothly that delicate copper enameling or silver clay pieces remain undisturbed while opening or closing the door. The door opens smoothly on a heavy-duty 1/2” hinge shaft. No extra stand is needed; the built-in base stays cool even during extended hold times.
The interior is large enough to fire a 10” bronze clay container. A vent hole in the top, complete with tapered vent plug, is designed for lost wax casting. You can also vent combustible cork clay and other fillers used with silver clay.
The Xpress-E-12 can ship by UPS. Enjoy lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.
Works great still learning it and tuning it in for my burnout cycle but great machine. Have already referred it to a buddy who is getting one soon himself.
Absolutely love my kiln! It really simplified the casting process for me.
The kiln came in a
The kiln came in a reasonable time frame with no visible damage. I have cycled the unit about 25 times since making the purchase. I found that the temperature you set it at is not the correct temperature. I checked the electrical source and found it to be fine. I set the kiln 384 to get 300 degrees, checked with a laser temp gun. 1400 gets me 1100 degrees. It has always worked, if flawed.
I love my kiln and my enameled pieces look great!
I researched and bought this model, the biggest one that fits my budget. I am so glad that I did not settle with the smaller and less expensive one. I use this for enameling and firing small clay pieces and works very well for both. The customer and technological support staff at Kiln Frog were very kind and helpful as well.
