Low-fire Electric Kiln Low-fire Electric Kiln 01/01/2017 Derek I’ve finally gotten a new low-fire electric kiln. This kiln is designed to fire up to 1000°C, so it’s useful only for on-glaze enamels and bisque. Total cost was 2900RMB, which is about $420USD. The kiln uses 45cm X 50cm shelves, a common size here. Elements are also snaked through the bottom of the kiln, on top of which are placed bricks. Single K-type thermocouple placed in the middle of the kiln. Locking wheels, really handy. Control box. Element connectors Spring door.
