Paragon SC-3 Silver & Glass Kiln with Bead Door
The heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Stained glass, enamels, and ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a special moment that you will never outgrow.
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 fast, plugs into a standard 120 volt household outlet, ships by UPS, and is large enough to fire many pieces.
A kiln with a long history
The SC-3 has been in production since 1998. It is a proven design that we have steadily refined every year since 1998. 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.
Fast kiln, with ventilated case
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 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.

"This has been a great kiln. I've fired it at least ten times
since February of this year. No problems at all. I also own a
top loading Janus I've had for maybe 6 years by now.
Again, no problems. It doesn't get used much. Every time I
need it, it works!
