It depends on what yu want to do, what kind of glass work you want to
do, but I used to have a big pottery kiln that had a set of controls
by which you could very carefully regulate the heat. It had three
sets of coils with knobs that changed the percent of time the coils
were on in some period of time. This couple with a good pyrometer
that had a readout in degrees celcius allowed you to regulate the neat
very nicely either in rising or falling, often important with the
Any kiln is fine if the controls are good. You don't want to fire
glass by cone and you don't want a kiln that shuts off with open vents
for gas which will cool quickly.
