Adding lots of iron oxide vs. a small percentage of cobalt means you'll have more dry material in the batch, and therefore will need more water. Plus red iron oxide tends to be less pure than other oxides, and has a measurable percentage of clay in it, which will take in more water.

Check the labels for safety issues.

Nice stuff. Looks like maybe Standard 266 for the clay body. Would love to see more pieces with color.

The top and bottom elements are made to run hotter than the center elements, to compensate for heat loss out the lid and floor and prevent cold spots in those areas. This is what they mean by 'graded' elements. Very common in many brands. I've seen some (Cress maybe?) that have 3 or 4 different elements in them.
