This kiln is perfect for use in small studios and classrooms because of its compact size. It will fire up to Cone 03, and it can be used for glass decoration, enameling metal and for painting china. It loads in the front and is well insulated for efficient firing. This three-phase kiln comes with $110 in Amaco glazes and a five-year warranty. The 6" of insulation keeps the radiant temperature low, making it a perfect kiln for classroom use. The chamber has a capacity of 2.83 cubic feet. The bottom frames are constructed of tough welded steel that is 1/8" thick. The top frames are made from 11-gauge steel that has been welded in place. The steel shells are a durable 18 gauge. The steel door is refractory backed and is easy to open. When closed, it stays securely in place with its snug fit. The element wires are 14 gauge and are housed securely in the walls of the firing chamber. To store your supplies conveniently, opt for the cabinet base by FINE-ART that is pictured.
