I have just gotten a ROHDE kiln too, what model is yours and how are you wiring it in? You are in the UK or US? I am in the US so having it wired here is becoming a puzzle to figure out. I will then be following your lead as to burning it in, etc. as its is new as well. So thanks for asking these good Qs. Are you familiar with ROHDE any?
I now have a new(-ish) Rohde Kiln (TE 200s). has anyone had any experience with this one? I am still in the process of getting an electrician to make it US friendly. Its my first kiln and a beauty! Just so unfamiliar to me. Professional sized, fires to cone 10. Like an IKEA looking model!
