AMACO Excel Kilns - EX-399 with Sitter/Timer/EZ-Lift, 240V AC, single phase
Having a kiln in your art studio collection, you may soon find out, is something of a treasure in and of itself. These units, especially the rather large, industrial-strength EX-399 Excel kiln may not be the most beautiful pieces of equipment in your studio, but its ability to help you create your next masterpiece far outweighs its personal image disposition. Though, for a practical-use kiln, this one beats its competitors in aesthetics by far.
The EX-399, large in comparison to its Excel counterparts, measures at 28 inches in diameter, including the control panel, and 27 inches in depth for plenty of room in its firing chamber for increased capacity. It operates with six Kanthal A1 elements and comes with an EZ-Lift spring-loaded hinge for easy loading and unloading of personal or industrial pottery and ceramic creations.
The 399 fires to Cone 8 and is under manufacturer warranty for two years with an added purchasing bonus of $100 worth of Amaco glaze.
