The Skutt HotStart Pro is the perfect starter kiln. However, it includes programming features that the beginner as well as the advanced artist can appreciate. It features customizable ramp and hold programming, which allows the user to program five custom programs, each with up to eight segments.
Standard with the HotStart Pro Kiln is the GlassMaster LT controller, the most versatile three-button controller on the market. This kiln also features GlassFire Mode, which has preset buttons for fusing, slumping, and tac fusing. These preset buttons help beginners start firing the kiln right away.
HotStart Pro has solid state relays for safety and durability, and operates on standard household 120 volt current. The element is in the lid, which has been redesigned to remove the pins that previously held the elements in place. This improved design eliminates the potential of pins falling into fused glass pieces. The chamber is 15" in diameter. Included with the kiln are a 13 inch shelf with three 1 inch posts, ThinFire shelf paper, and 8 oz of Kiln Wash.
