The Iguana has power to spare. This results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. 10,800 watts heat the 18” wide, 18” deep, 22 ½” high interior to a full cone 10.
The 240 volt Iguana plugs into a standard 6-50R outlet, so you can fire it on the outlet most studio kilns already use.
Easy to Load
The Iguana is easy on the back muscles. With the optional 22” stand, the interior floor height is a comfortable 34 ½”.
Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge elements. The elements are easy to replace, because you can comfortably reach into the kiln.
Potters and ceramists who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Iguana. The door swings open wide on a heavy ½” steel rod with sealed bearings. A spring-loaded latch presses the door tightly closed. A recessed firebrick lip around the door seals in heat.
The Sentry digital controller is manufactured by Orton Ceramic Foundation. It is unsurpassed in reliability for a controller in its price range. It includes a programmed cool-down, Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold modes, and is capable of accepting types K, R, or S thermocouples. A type-K thermocouple with an Inconel® sheath comes standard.
For your peace of mind, the Iguana includes a switch that shuts off power to the controller when not in use.

The Furniture Kit
The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
