The first time I fired my new SC-2 kiln, I could smell something burning, so I lifted the bead door to peep inside and noticed that the ceramic fiber shelf had turned brown.
The ceramic fiber shelf contains binders that burn out during the first firing. Do not be concerned if the shelf becomes discolored. It will turn white again after the kiln reaches about 1000°F / 537°C.
