Pottery Kiln - Skutt Firebox 8x6LT kiln with digital programmer and shelf kit 240v.

Our lowest cost ceramic kiln and a great little workhorse.  We think it is great because it has a strong build, it's amazingly fast firing, the hinged lid is marvellous, and the icing on the cake: it comes with the excellent Kilnmaster LT 3 button controller, which has programming features for the beginner and the advanced artist.

A great pottery kiln for beginners or teachers alike. We regularly use one in the studio for test firing.

Comes with Skutt's 2 Year Warranty

Product FAQs

Ask a Question

  • My husband is looking to get into creating his own pots as a hobby in his retirement, would we need to house this kiln in any particular building? Would he need a brick built structure rather than a wooden studio?

    Hi there,

    This kiln is very well insulated, so doesn't get very hot at all on the outside during firing. As long as there is adequate ventilation and the kiln is positioned away from walls you shouldn't have a problem.

  • Do I need to buy a stand for the kiln or does it operate safely without?

    This kiln has small feet attached, which provide adequate insulation for whatever surface the kiln is placed on so an extra stand does not need to be bought.

  • How long would it take to bisque fire three mugs?Does it fire to stoneware?How long would a glaze firing take?Many thanks

    Hi,

    There are so many factors that affect the length of a firing that it is hard to say. Below is an example but it is very much a guide.

    If you were to do a bisque firing with a 4 hour preheat, Cone 04, Slow speed, no hold at top temp and an average size load, it would take approximately 15 hours and 20 minutes. The kiln would then take several more hours to cool down, but 3 mugs is the most you can fit into this kiln so it may take a bit longer.

    In terms of a glaze firing, this has even more factors that affect the firing speed, but below is another example.

    If you were to do an Earthenware glaze firing without a preheat to Cone 06, Medium speed, 0.00 Hold at top temp, and an average size load, it would take approximately 7 hours and 10 minutes. The kiln would then take several more hours to cool down.

    We have this kiln in our studio and use it for test firings, and have taken it to stoneware temperatures multiple times. However, this will affect the element life and will probably void your warranty so it is down to you whether you decide to fire the kiln this high.
