The good news is that glass kilns keep getting better.

Avoid any kiln that uses pins to hold in the elements. It is a terrible design from which most kiln manufacturers (but not all) have moved away.

For a starter kiln, I’m a big fan of the Paragon CS-14D (

It is an excellent design (ball groove element design, opens both as a top loading and clamshell, Paragon build quality), reasonbly priced, and plugs into standard 120V 15A outlet.

We distribute Paragon – but I generally only sell locally where I can support them – so the recommendation comes with no hidden agenda.
