My kiln is much smaller, but I wanted to put in a good word for
Paragon. I've had my Paragon SC2 for 5 years and it's gotten hard
use -- being taken in the car, carted all over to classes and being
run at top ramp speed for workshops, and it's holding up really,
Sierra makes a kiln the size you want:
Sierra PMC Kiln Model 1100
Width 12 inches, Depth 12 inches, Height 8 inches.
Source for the below:
All Sierra kilns have a baked white powder finish, with a peephole
in the door and a vent on top. All kilns use a 3-key controller, with
auto programs for firing PMC, PMC+ & PMC3.
PEOPLE OFTEN ASK US WHICH KILN WE RECOMMEND FOR PMC.
We recommend the Paragon SC-2 for the following reasons:
-The inside dimensions are comparable to the Sierra Model 360, but
the cost is quite a bit less.
-The Sierra tilted panel can be damaged with hot glass accidentally
falling on it when unloading.
-The electrical requirements for the SC-2 is identical to the Sierra
Model 360 giving the same heat.
-The controller of the SC-2 kilns is similar to the Sierra kilns and
is totally programmable for PMC.
-And finally, we have used both kilns and our personal preferance on
kiln quality and use is the SC-2.
