The SC3 is digitally controlled, so you can set it and forget it. Use one of 4 customizable heat, hold and stop programs, or build firings up to 8 segments long saved to 4 customizable programs.
The firing box measures 8" wide, 8" deep, and 7-3/4" high. A maximum of 3 kiln shelves can be fired at once. Any of the stainless steel and ceramic firing vessels we carry for carbon firing will fit this kiln.
The SC3 plugs into a standard 110V household outlet (3-prong) and draws 1800 watts. As a comparison, most hair dryers, when set on high, draw about 1500 watts.
Order your SC3 in traditional Paragon Blue, or have fun with our custom color options. Be sure to add a kiln furniture kit that includes the essentials you'll need for metal clay firing.

Place the SC3 on a counter top or table without worry; the surface will not heat during firing thanks to the elevated firing box. Double-walled construction keeps the outside case cool, even at extended firing times. Maintenance
Your kiln will give you years of trouble-free service as long as you are good to it. Keep the inside clean, don't gouge the fiber walls, don't fire directly on the floor, etc. The Paragon SC3 kiln has a ceramic fiber interior with the heating elements embedded and protected within the shell. The heating elements have a lifespan that is use-dependent, and for most people, will last for years. When it is time to replace the heating elements, the ceramic fiber shell, called a muffle, is replaced.
The kiln is warrantied to be free of defects in workmanship for a period of 1 year from date of shipment. Manufacturer will repair or replace any parts that become defective under normal and proper use during the specified period.Entire warranty can be read here
