A Test Kiln is a small capacity electric kiln that is usually wired to run off 15-amps or less of standard 110-volt household current. They offer a convenient choice for ceramists whose work is very small (dolls, jewelry, miniatures, etc.) and whose production level is light, or who cannot install the 240-volt power line required for larger kilns. Test kilns are also an indispensable tool for high production studio potters. Their small size makes them perfect for: (1) developing and testing new glaze recipes, (2) testing a new batch of a standard glazes to confirm its performance before applying it to a kiln load of ware, and (3) for firing single pieces when a full load is not ready and the deadline is near.
