FAQ/Answer

I am trying to decide whether to buy a top-loading ceramic kiln with 3” walls or 2 1/2” walls.

Get the kiln with 3" walls if you are firing to cone 6 or above, because the kiln’s heating elements will last longer. If you were firing to cone 05, then it wouldn't matter which model you chose. Electrical cost to fire the 3" wall kiln is slightly lower than to fire the 2 1/2" wall version. In 1980 we introduced 3" wall kilns as the Energy Miser series, because they save electricity. The 3" wall kiln also takes longer to cool down. But slow cooling enhances certain glazes.
