This kiln uses common available household electricity, 115 volts at 14 amps, 60 Hz. The cost of electricity to run this kiln for one hour at half power is approximately 9 cents per hour. A digital controller, which includes a pyrometer, is included with kiln. This bead kiln, made with insulated fire brick, can also be used for fusing glass, ceramics, copper enameling, or many different uses. This style kiln has the unique feature of being modular and stacking. This allows you to add accessories to turn the kiln into a crucible kiln, a casting kiln or kilns for other uses! All kilns should be kept 12" from any flammable materials. The fiber cloth door covering pictured, is included free with the kiln.

Also Available for 240 Volts Why have a side door opening for a glass bead kiln?
  • Comfort. Sure, one could put a mandrel into any kiln. But when you lift the lid a blast of 1000 degree heat will hit you. The unique feature (invented by us) of this bead kiln is a side door opening. This allows you to insert beads through the side without much heat discomfort.
  • Safety. Sure you could place a mandrel into any kiln. But if you happen to touch one of the exposed elements with the metal mandrel you will get an electric shock. The unique feature (invented by us) of this kiln is a side door opening. This keeps the metal mandrel away from any electrical elements for safety.
  • Kiln maintenance

Check out this feature!

Optional bead rack that holds many times more beads than any other kiln the same size! Built in bead rack for kiln with optional snap on rod rest for glass rods. Close up view of the side opening. Even though the opening is only 8" wide by 2¼" high, many beads can be stacked upward. Notice from this picture how many beads are just on the left 2" of the kiln. Pictured on the right is the optional glass rod holder. Place glass rods on this rack to preheat the ends. When you are ready to use that color, simply remove the rod and go directly into the torch flame. This eliminates the need to preheat the tip of the glass rod in the torch!

We require that the shipping costs for all orders including kilns be calculated by
