The portable and convenient Paragon FireFly Digital 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 Paragon FireFly Digital is an excellent choice for beginners. It fires rapidly with a digital Sentry Xpress controller at the precise rate and temperature you choose. The controller stores up to 4 custom programs in memory. The display shows the kiln temperature throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C. Customize your programs with up to 8 segments per firing.

You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the small one 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.

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 festive moment that you will never outgrow.

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 degrees F.

The Paragon FireFly Digital is made of durable 2 1/2" thick insulating firebrick, which stores heat for slow cooling and safe annealing of smaller glass projects. The solid 2 1/2" thick firebrick top and bottom help seal in the heat.

To strengthen the firing chamber, the firebrick corners are fitted together with L-shaped notches. This type of joint lasts longer than the butted joint and the "picture frame" mitered joint found on competitive brands.

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.

This kiln is built to last. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available.

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.
