  1. I've been doing fused glass for the past 30 years and have an old front loading Paragon kiln with elements in the door.  The past year or so I've gotten hooked on pottery, and am ready to purchase a pottery kiln (the Paragon I have can handle low fire clay and glazes, but not anything above that).

    I really like the quality of L and L kilns, and am thinking about buying one of their front loaders (I'm only 5'3" tall and don't think I could reach the bottom of their traditional round kilns).  I'm concerned that their front loader doors (except for the industrial versions) don't have elements in them.  They say the extra insulation in the door eliminates the need for door elements.  Have you found this to be true?

      Yes, the EFL series work very well, even though they don't have elements in the doors. They use a microporous insulation in the doors that prevents that area from running cold. I've seen the results of all their testing and there are no cold spots due to the lack of door elements. None of my customers have ever said they had any problems.

      Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!  L and L front loader it is then!
