Paragon SC-3 Silver & Glass Kiln with Glass Window

The digital SC-3 kiln fires Art Clay Silver and PMC silver clays, decals, china paint, enameling, and glass in minutes up to 2000°F. The SC-3 is popular with seminar teachers because it fires so fast, plugs into a 120 volt outlet, and is easy to sell.

The SC-3 has been in production since 1998. It is a proven design that we have steadily refined every year. Artists in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan love their SC-3.

The SC-3, for a digital kiln, is surprisingly affordable. It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of clay silver to its recommended time.

The ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the layer of air between it and the inner case. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times. A powerful rare earth magnet holds the bead door open.

The 6 1/2” wide bead door includes a brushed stainless steel mandrel holder. The 1” x 3” window is beveled for a wide view of the kiln interior. Watch your project turn bright red through the window, which is guaranteed up to 1700°F. (Note: Always wear firing safety glasses when viewing the kiln interior.)

The fast firing element is embedded in the firing chamber shell. It includes a top vent for lost wax casting.

The SC-3 has separate heating elements in the left and right sides of the firing chamber. The back of the chamber has no element. This results in improved heat distribution, because heat does not build up in the back of the kiln.

Each SC-3 includes a 1/4” thick ceramic fiber shelf.

  • Door opens 180 degrees for easy loading

Have something good to say about the SC3 with Bead Dr and Window? Tell Us

"I am a metalsmith and glass artist. I did a ton of research when shopping around for my kiln. I needed something that could do just about anything and considered several options. I chose the Paragon SC-3 kiln as it looked to be the most versatile, and almost every glass artist I spoke with expressed that Paragon is a great company. With such a good reputation, I was fairly confident in my purchase choice, and I have been very pleased with my kiln. It handles my enameling, PMC firing, functions quite well for flask burn-out for lost wax casting, and is an awesome glass fusing/glass bead annealing oven. I chose the model with a bead door and the door window so I can visually monitor my work while fusing PMC firing.

"This little kiln really can do it all. With it’s 7 ½” X 7 ½” X 8” interior, it’s large enough for all my projects, yet still runs on a normal 120V outlet. I love that it is small enough to take to classes & art fairs and can hold up to 4 shelves of work. I wasn’t sure I would like embedded coils, but I have found that it provides for a little extra safety when I’m teaching classes, because there is less potential to for shock. The programmable digital Sentry Express has plenty of program memory & was real easy to learn to navigate. I can even use the kiln for small to medium sized glass blowing operations that I do on my large torch, without worrying about cracked pieces.

"The SC-3 is the best 'all around' little powerhouse kiln and meets/exceeds all my studio needs. Additionally, Paragon has a great website with lots of training videos available to their customers, and their customer service people were really friendly when I initially called with all my questions. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase!" - Teresa Perry, Ohio
