I have a one-year-old electronic Olympic kiln. I use the preset programs, always going with a slow bisque combined with a long preheat period -- usually 12-18 hours preheating at 200. Tonight I need to rush this load a little, but I don't think it's ready for 200 degrees! I'd like to dry the work a little faster than it can dry by just sitting in my studio (withits humidity of 85%). It seems that PRE pre-heating the work at maybe 125 for 12 hours before I use the actual preheat program, which is 200 degrees, would be safer than jumping the temperature on the sculptures straightaway to 200.
Is my logic, um, logical? And if it is, can anyone tell me how to do this? I can't find anything in the instruction manual that tells me how to set the temperature to 125 degrees for a period of time.
