Congratulations on your kiln present!! Always a wonderful thing!
I’ve heard that to break it in you’re supposed to bake cookies in it. I think that would be a full ramp (9999) up to the baking temperature, hold for how-ever-many-minutes, then shut off! Be careful not to touch the coils with your cookie sheet!
Keep an eye out for the classes and special events. Fusing Fridays are a lot of fun and very educational…topics vary, but are always full of new information.
Merry Christmas to you!
