My tiles cracked using these at 04 firing
from Sacramento, CA
Comments about Amaco Tile Setter:
I wrote a review earlier but am now revising it. At 04 firing, my tiles started cracking on top of and underneath these tile setters, especially the ones that I was refiring. Also the tiles under the setters were not getting hot enough so my black line in my cuerda seca tiles was not getting as black. I'm not sure why, but it happened the last three times I used them. The tiles I fired right next to them not using these shelves did not break.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for reaching out! We're sorry to hear that you've started having trouble with these tile setters. What you describe is likely not a problem with the tile setters themselves, but may indicate a kiln or firing issue. We want to make sure we take care of this as well as possible, and our Product Information and Customer Care Agents will be working with you to find a resolution. Your satisfaction is important to us!

Worked great at cone 04
from northern California
I bought these after all my tiles warped using another rack that had no middle support for the tiles. These racks work great for me at cone 04. I haven't tried them at any other temperature. They stack nicely, the tiles fire evenly...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have a small Kiln and the great thing about the stackable tile setter is being able to maximize your kiln space.Perfect for firing multiple tiles.I live in Australia and these are not readily available here, plus Dick Blick packaged securely so as they arrived in perfect condition. Thank you

This is the 3rd type of tile setter I have purchased. Have not fired the tiles using this one, but the setters that don't fully support the tile cause them to bend during glaze firing. These are fully supportive of tile and yet compact so that I can fit more 6 x 6 tiles than my kiln shelves will normally hold. They are thin so don't drop them. One broke in shipping, but Blick replaced it no questions asked.
