Since you are 'getting back into clay' i assume there is no rush. If so, check craigs list daily. my last two L&L 23 inch kilns (one with a computer control) went for $500 and $700. Make sure there are photos, and with L&L the serial number is the date of manufacture.

Jennifer, see if you can download the instruction manual.

I know with my L&L kilns there are dozens of pages telling how to do everything from write a custom program for crystal firing to doing 15 minutes at 500 degrees for a pizza. I have yet to try a crystal firing. :D

Slightly off topic:

If you/anyone really intends to do a lot of cone ten firing, why not go with gas? That temperature is really hard on elements, and you can't do reduction or salt.

Is there anything made in your hemisphere? China? South Africa? South America?

In Topic: Electric Kiln Design: 'bucket' Or 'box' Preference?

I currently load a pair of 7.5 cu ft 'bucket' kilns about six times a week. (same height as the 10 cu ft) I don't have any health issues doing the job. I am 5'8", 30 pounds overweight, and 72 years old.
