If you are planning to create beautiful glass, you will need a kiln. The AMACO Excel Kilns - EX-399 with Sitter/Timer/EZ-Lift, 208V AC, single phase would be perfect for you, as it is easy to use. This is because it is easy to program, and it provides even heat because it has element coils on both the top and sides. If you are using the kiln to create several glass molds, this kiln heats everything evenly so they are all uniform. This means everything you fire will be even, and heated at a uniform rate. You can use this kiln for your drop mold projects, as well as for your tall slumping projects, and it can be programmed in both Centigrade and Fahrenheit. The fire chamber capacity is large enough so you should have no problem firing what you need.
