I recommend this model as the perfect starter kiln for fusers creating glass objects other than jewelry. I know the rationale is to start small, but if you buy a kiln that is much smaller than this, you will grow out of it in a VERY short time. This model will serve your needs for a long time to come.

The GF2E model is a top loading kiln only. The GF2ETLC or GF214ETLC give you the option of using your kiln as a top loader or a clamshell. The deeper GF214E and GF214ETLC allow you to create taller drapes or drops that you can monitor by using the clamshell feature. You can also use it for raking.
The GF2's square design expands the firing space provided by traditional cylindrical glass kilns. These models have elements in the lid of the kiln to provide radiant heat needed when fusing temperature is reached and elements in the kiln walls for conductive heat. Elements in the firing chamber are used to evenly heat the glass piece and the lid element is used when fusing temperature is reached. Models have a maximum temperature range of 1700°F to protect the optional quartz glass viewing window but can be reprogrammed to fire to higher temperatures. Top loading glass fusing kilns come in cylindrical and square styles and have the option of top loading, clamshell loading or top and clamshell loading. Glass kiln models 20” wide or larger are equipped with a lid lift assist for easy opening and closing of the kiln lid; however, smaller width kilns have the option of adding a lid lift if needed.
These 240 volt glass fusing kilns come equipped with pilot light, a tall 18” metal stand or frame, stainless steel jacket, and RTC 1000 12 Key electronic controller. Included in the kiln package are peephole plugs, lid wedge, instruction manuals and warranty card. Two-year Kiln Limited Warranty. Fits an 18" square shelf.
