Great For Hobbyists

When Hobby Ceramics was at it’s peak, this was our most popular selling kiln. It’s large enough for most people yet small enough to fit in most peoples homes.

KilnMaster Controller

Kiln Sitter Controller

  • Uses specially formulated pyrometric cones to measure heatwork and turn off the kiln.
  • Skutt purchased The Original Dawson KilnSitter company in February of 2009. All parts are guaranteed original.
  • Now standard – Safety Timer helps to prevent over-fires
  • Individual infinite switches on each section allow you to heat up slowly to avoid thermal shock.

Sectional Design

Sectional Design

Sectional Design is a good idea on so many levels.

Moving

Imagine trying to move a kiln into the basement or through a narrow door without being able to break it down into sections.

Repair
No more standing on your head in the kiln to replace those bottom elements or removing every brick in the kiln to get to the one you want to replace. Just disconnect the control boxes, unhook the buckles and place the section you want to work on on a table.

Replacement
We hope nothing really bad happens to your kiln … but … if it does, isn’t nice to know you can replace one bad section instead of the whole kiln?


The Warranty

  • Unlike most warranties, ours covers Parts AND Labor.
  • Never Pro-Rated.
  • Serviced by the most extensive, knowledgeable and talented distributor network in the industry.
  • Backed by a company whose mission statement is “We help you make great things”. When your kiln is down, you can’t make great things.

And So Much More!

When you are buying a kiln, you are not just buying the equipment, you are also buying the service that comes before and after the sale. From the moment we cut that first brick to the day you open the box, to the day you are ready to retire it, our reputation is on the line and we take that very seriously. Get the whole story here.
