Paragon TnF-Q-11A

The digital TnF-Q-11A fires rapidly to 2300F on a common 120 volt household outlet. Light-weight, portable, and powerful, it is popular for everything from enameling to porcelain dolls. It makes a great test kiln and will fire silver clay and glass sculpture.

Q series heating elements, exposed in dropped, recessed insulating firebrick grooves, are easy to replace. Unlatch and open the door with one hand. No extra stand is needed; the Q-series built-in base stays cool during operation. All models include a door vent hole with steel cover.

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

The Furniture Kit

The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.

1 C-2 Shelf (5” x 5” x 3/8”)

4 - 2” long 1" wide Square Posts
