The Ovation-22 Pottery Kiln
If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation-22. Fire large projects such as bowls or platters. Imagine how many mugs you could fire in the Ovation-22. As you can see, a few production loads can pay for this kiln.
Patented dual spring-assisted lid lifters transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the rear kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for. The truss and floating lid system allow for expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring system includes a floating lid.
The patented, control box on the Ovation-22 opens forward for easy maintenance. The box is hinged at the bottom. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position for your convenience.
A heavy galvanized steel base completely covers the reversible brick bottom. Tabs on the steel base fold up inside the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.
Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Crimpless element connectors are easy to install and are included with replacement elements.

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 Two Heavy Duty Rolling Stands, 24” Square x 12” High
Two deluxe kiln stands with locking casters are included with the kiln. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when it is not in use. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of one of the stands. The stands are rock solid.
The stands have solid tops to support the firebrick bottom of your kiln from edge to edge. They fit together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Stands ship unassembled.)
Designed for production
Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.
