The UltraLite Beehive Kiln is a table top jewelry kiln used to fire FS999 Fine Silver Clay, EZ960 Sterling Silver Clay, PMC and Art Clay Silver. This kiln is not recommended for Metal Magic Clay. It will fire glass cabochons, over glaze enamels and is good for metal annealing and heat treating. The UltraLite is also popular with jewelers world-wide for working with granulation, keum boo, and enameling techniques. And, it's possible to fuse small glass projects as well.

The heating chamber of the kiln measures 3 1/2" in diameter and the exterior measures 5" in diameter. 3" Element. It uses only 250 watts of power. The 15" cord plugs into standard 120V household power and heats directly to 1550F / 843C. The temperature can be raised to 1600F / 871C with the use of the Flat Cover Accessory.

The Ultra Lite Beehive Kiln is shipped ready to use for granulation and enameling. Spatula Included. Weighs 2 pounds.

The UltraLite Studio Kiln is an upgrade to the UltraLite Beehive Kiln. The Studio model has more working space, is more durable and is more energy efficient than the Beehive model. Perfect for larger enameling projects or items that require more heat.

The 120V UltraLite Studio Kiln Features:

  • Larger 3.5 Element creates a Larger Heat Sink (which means more available heat)
  • Compact size of 6" Tall x 6.25" Round
  • Weighs less than 2 pounds
  • Firing Surface of 3.5" Diameter x 1.5" Height
  • 1600F / 871C Maintained Operating Temperature

  • All of the Accessories for the Beehive Model are Interchangeable with the Studio Model
  • Standard 120 Volt household power
  • This 250 Watt Kiln costs less than .02 cents per firing to operate
  • The UltraLite Studio Kilns are a small and handy firing device. While intended for enameling, these kilns can also be used for firing silver 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 controller does not work with the 240 V Studio kiln. 240 V Kiln comes with a Euro Plug. If you do not have a Euro Plug, a standard adapter will be needed.
