The AMACO HF-97 is a mid range capacity kiln with great insulation. This top-loading model now comes with the ability to fire to Cone 10. The versatility of this kiln is due to the broad firing range which it can handle: high-temp porcelain, stoneware, earthware, and even overgraze decorating. The HF-97 works best in smaller to medium sized environments, such as a small classroom or personal studio.
Features of the HF-97 include:
