  • Paragon Caldera XL

    Fire porcelain, stoneware, china, ceramics, and decals in Paragon’s digital Caldera XL. Test glazes and glaze application ideas before running production quantities in a large studio kiln.

    You will not outgrow a small kiln even if you acquire a larger kiln later. Continue to use the Caldera XL for testing or for small projects. Carry it with you to seminars or on vacation; convenient handles aid in moving the kiln.

    The Caldera XL in the classroom

    A Caldera XL is a nice addition to school programs. A test kiln is relatively inexpensive. Students can make gifts in the Caldera XL in time for a birthday or holiday instead of waiting until the school’s large kiln is ready to fire. A test kiln creates enthusiasm for a clay program. Students can test glazes while they feel the momentum instead of waiting to fire them in the large kiln.

    New teachers inherit bags of unlabeled clay in their classrooms. Many kiln loads of ware have been ruined because they were fired to the wrong temperature. With a Caldera XL kiln, you can easily test unlabeled clay.

    Built to last

    The firebrick corners are fitted together with L-shaped notches for extra strength. This type of joint lasts longer than the butted joint and the "picture frame" mitered joint found on competitive brands.

    A steel base supports the brick bottom. The Caldera XL comes with a built-in steel stand. Use the switch on the front panel to reboot the controller.

    Both sides of the lid and top rim of sidewall firebricks are hardened and sealed with a refractory coating to protect the ware from dust. The firing chamber, including the lid and bottom, is made of 3” thick firebricks, 20% thicker than standard 2 1/2” bricks.

    Heating elements are made from the finest high-temperature wire available. Paragon uses heat-dissipating element connectors refined and proven over many years in our kilns. The stainless steel case and lid band include case tighteners for easy maintenance.

    UPS/FedEx Shipping

    Enjoy a lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.

    Creative satisfaction

    The heat of the kiln offers wonderful surprises. Glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your masterpieces is a joy you will never outgrow. Get your family involved and create priceless memories using your kiln.

    The furniture kit

    The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for the Caldera XL or Caldera XL-KS. 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.
