Sorry - This Kiln Has Been Discontinued

This kiln uses common available household electricity, 115 volts at 14 amps. The cost of electricity to run this kiln for one hour at half power is approximately 9 cents per hour. A dial heat control switch (ICS) is included with each kiln. A pyrometer, purchased separately, is necessary to measure temperature. Choose between 3 different types. 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. Shown in the picture, is the optional snap on rod rest and the fiber cloth door covering, which is included free with the kiln..

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 HotGlass) 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 HotGlass) of this kiln is a side door opening. This keeps the metal mandrel away from any electrical elements for safety.
  • Setting up your kiln for flameworking.
  • Setting up your kiln for glass fusing. (under construction)
  • Kiln maintenance

Built in bead rack that holds many times more beads than any other kiln the same size!

Close up view of the side opening.

Even though the opening is only 11" 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! See the web material on the top of the picture. That is HotGlass's unique high temperature fiber cloth door. We pulled the cloth up to expose the inside of the kiln for this picture. This cloth door covers the door to keep much of the heat in the kiln. Because it is flexible, the cloth will bend around any mandrels or glass rods protruding from the kiln.


This part of the kiln overhangs the base on each side by 1". It was found that by making this part of the kiln 2" wider we could turn the 9" kiln into a wider 11" kiln for the same price! This overhang will not affect kiln performance.
