Digital Automatic TnF-82
Paragon 8-sided Digital Ceramic Kilns

China Painting    Decals    Low-Fire Ceramics

The digital automatic TnF-82 Paragon kiln is large enough for most ceramic projects. Figured at cost per cubic foot, it is among our lowest priced hobby kilns. It uses the same circuit size as most of our studio kilns. Upgrade to a larger kiln later without having to install a new circuit.

This kiln now features the easy-access drop down switch box. Remove two screws, and the box, hinged at the bottom, opens forward for easy maintenance. The kiln features a top row of 2 inch high blank wall bricks. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.


A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.


The TnF-82 is made of 2 ½ inch thick firebrick in the lid, walls and bottom. It is designed for low-fire ceramics, china paint, decals and gold. For porcelain and stoneware, select a kiln made of 3 inch firebrick.

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln.

  • Add Time Key adds five minutes to a temperature hold

  • Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, bad voltage, temperature deviation. 
  • 14 Segment Display is easier to read than the previous 7 segment. 
  • Delay Fire Set the time that the firing is to start. The kiln will turn on at that time.
  • Quick Release Molex Connectors permit fast removal of the controller. Replacing the Sentry 2.0 or Sentry Xpress takes only minute
