Hi, I'm looking at either
for my new studio. We have both 120 and 220 v electric with 30 amp breakers.
My question is: will porcelain FULLY vitrify at 2300°F (the first kiln) or 2350°F (the second)?
I know 2300°F is the low range of Cone 10/high fire. I want any porcelain I fire in my new kiln to really "get there." I'm having a hard time figuring out if vitrification is guaranteed at the low end of that temperature or if clay folks like to err hotter. Basically, I'm wondering if the extra heat capability (a similar glass kiln would only need to hit 2000°F) is worth paying for.
Any insight is helpful, thank you!
