Paragon QuikFire 6

From Zero to 1000°F in Five Minutes! The QuikFire 6 brings instant gratification to ceramics, glass fusing, enameling, and china painting. Small glass pieces can be fired and cooled to room temperature in only 30 to 40 minutes. Small ceramic pieces take only 40 to 50 minutes. No more waiting to fill your larger kiln to test-fire a new technique or new glaze. No more waiting until morning to see freshly fired ware.

"The QuikFire 6 is a great kiln for checking a concept,” said Lynn Perry. “The last time I used the QuikFire, I wanted to confirm that a small new earring design would bend rather than just drawn into itself, and within 30 minutes I had my answer. I put together 80 pairs of earrings after the verification. If I had just taken a chance and not done a test, it could have been a very expensive mistake, because I would have not oriented the pieces properly on my forms and not gotten a bend."

Demonstrate the QuikFire to your family and watch their astounded reaction. Demonstrate it at craft shows, and crowds will gather.

Experimenting with the QuikFire is fun. Instead of risking a good piece of greenware on an untried technique, you can fire throw-away clay scraps and view the results in minutes. This kiln is a learning tool you will use over and over, whether you’re a beginner or a master.

The QuikFire is a ceramic fiber shell with an embedded element. It measures 6" x 6" x 6" inside. The shell rests on a ceramic fiber base with steel stand. The QuikFire is rated to 2000°F. It fires on 120 volts and needs no other heating source. At only 1560 watts, it uses less power than many hair driers.

To see how your work is progressing, tilt the shell up an inch for several seconds. Read temperature at a glance with the built-in pyrometer, which indicates when to start watching the ware inside the kiln.

You can make projects faster with two or more shelves. As the kiln is firing, prepare your next project on the spare shelf in the furniture kit. Remove the first shelf and insert the second. Leave items on the hot shelf that need slow cooling. The shelf keeps the pieces warm.

For European voltage, specify the QuikFire 6E.
