The UltraLite Studio Kilns are a small and handy firing device. While intended for enameling, these kilns can also be used for firing
silver and gold metal clays only. The UltraLite Kilns cannot fire base metal clays. This is a good choice for those who want an inexpensive option at a modest price. The Keum Boo kit will allow you to use this kiln to add pure gold leaf to your metal clay and other jewelry creations. The UltraLite Studio kiln can also fire Accent Silver with the flat cover in place. Please note: The flat cover should only be used for 3 - 5 minutes at a time.
International Customers, please note: The 240 V Temperature Controller is needed for the 240 V Studio Kiln. The 120 V Controller will not work with the 240 V Kiln. 240 V Kiln comes with a Euro Plug. If you do not have a Euro Plug, a standard adapter will be needed.
This product includes a 90 day limited manufacturers warranty.
We do not recommend firing dimensional pieces in these kilns.
Please note: The controller and ceramic inserts are required for proper firing with both kilns.
