Ceramic Kilns at a Glance: 3 cubic ft. & under ; Listed by Size
Many of these kilns will fire hot enough for ceramics (clay and glaze), but some will not and are best used for enameling, glass, jewelry, china painting and firing overglazes. Each kiln description will have either a maximum temperature, or a maximum Cone. If a Cone level is specified, then the kiln can be used for ceramics (or anything else). Temperatures from 2000 degrees and lower are used for the other purposes only. Please note that 120v limits the size a kiln can be, because there is only so much power available. For larger kilns you will need to go to 240v. Consider the height and width of your largest projects - do you want to tend the kiln or be able to leave it - and what type of power is available to you.
