The Max-119 is heavily insulated so you can fire to 2300°F on 120 volts, making this kiln ideal for glaze testing. Fire small ceramic projects, glass jewelry, clay beads, and china painting.
Glaze test kiln
Buy a Max-119 for your classroom. Students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday without waiting until the school’s large kiln is fired.
New teachers inherit bags of unlabeled clay. Many ceramic firings have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature, which disappoints students. With a small kiln, you can test unlabeled clay.
Students can test glazes while they feel the momentum instead of waiting to fire them in the large kiln. A test kiln creates enthusiasm for a clay program. And a test kiln is relatively inexpensive. A glaze test kiln vastly increases students’ knowledge of glazes.
The walls are 4 1/2” thick! The 2 1/2” thick firebricks are backed with an extra 2” of block insulation between the firebricks and the stainless steel case. The lid is 3” thick, and the bottom is 4 1/2” thick.

A kiln you won’t outgrow
You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the Max-119 for testing or small projects. Perfect a new design in the small kiln before running production quantities in the large kiln. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems and perfecting difficult glazes such as crystallines.
Thermocouple with “special limit” wire
The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.
Kiln Comes with Heavy Duty Rolling Stand, 18” Square x 18” High
A deluxe kiln stand with locking casters is included with the kiln. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when it is not in use. The stand is rock solid. It fits together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Ships unassembled.)
The 18” tall stand raises the kiln to a convenient height for loading and unloading. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of the stand.
