The portable and convenient Paragon Fire Fly will give you unbridled freedom. It plugs in almost anywhere on a household 120 volt outlet. Take this kiln to seminars or on vacation.

The firing results will thrill you. Create breathtaking glass bracelets and pendants in the 8" square x 4 1/2" high interior. Fire small glass casting molds and even drop molds. But you are not limited to glass. Fire porcelain or stoneware pendants and beads. Test glazes. The kiln has plenty of power to reach 2350° F.

The Paragon Fire Fly is an excellent choice for beginners. It fires rapidly. Yet you can slow it down with the infinite control switch. The pilot light glows brightly during firing.

Enjoy digital accuracy on a modest budget: Watch the kiln temperature on the hand-held, easy-to-read digital pyrometer, which is included at no extra charge. The pyrometer will help you determine the cooling rate of difficult glazes or know when to begin monitoring glass. It takes the guesswork out of firing.

The reliable hand-held pyrometer weighs only 5 ounces and measures in degrees F up to 1999°F. (Please note: If you fire hotter than 1999°F, you will need a pyrometer that reads higher temperatures, the Celcius model.) The liquid crystal display is easy to read even in bright daylight. Replace the Type-K thermocouple in seconds with a simple plug-in connection. We do have the Celcius Digital Pyrometer available. It reads to 1999 Celcius. So if you think you might do high fire ceramics, then please let us know when ordering and we will switch out the Fahrenheit for Celcius pyrometer. You can read a more complete description on the Firing and Torch page where we sell the pyrometers separately.

The Paragon Fire Fly is made of durable 2 1/2" thick insulating firebrick, which stores heat for slow cooling and safe annealing of smaller glass projects. Dropped, recessed grooves protect the replaceable heating elements for longer life. Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Rugged construction makes this kiln a little workhorse.

The hinged lid is self-adjusting to compensate for expansion at high temperatures. The hinge includes a stop that holds the lid open and out of the way. Lift the lid with a handle on the front or a separate handle on the side.

A built-in 3" tall steel base with mar-proof rubber feet covers the entire firebrick bottom. Place the kiln directly onto a heat-resistant work surface. No extra stand is needed.

A stainless steel heat shield inside the switch box protects wiring from contact with the case. Costly nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. Louvers on the top, side, and bottom of the switch box circulate air for the long life of the electrical components while keeping dust inside the box to a minimum.

Please note, however, that the window reduces the kiln's maximum temperature to approximately 2100°F (1148°C) and is meant for glass fusing. You can still fire porcelain and stoneware even with the window, but you will need to plug the window with ceramic fiber.

An optional switch is available that will turn off the elements when you open the door.  This is available for a $60 additional fee.  Please let us know if you want this added to the kiln in the comments section.  NOTE: some countries require this and it will have to be added to the kiln or it can be turned away at customs.
