Can a 240 volt kiln fire equally well on 208 volts?

A 240 volt kiln will fire slower on 208 volt. In fact that kiln may never reach its rated temperature.

Before you buy a kiln, check the voltage of your firing room with a voltmeter. (Call an electrician if you need help testing the voltage.) It is easy to assume that you have 240 volts, because in the U.S. we have been brought up on 240 volts at home. But many strip malls, schools, and industrial buildings have 208 volts. Voltage can even vary within the same building.

Another reason for confusion between 240 and 208 is that the wall outlets are the same.
