The Skutt HotStart Pro kiln is probably the best value starter glass kiln available. It plugs into a normal 13amp socket and costs less than 75p per firing. This 38cm chamber diameter kiln is produced by the world's largest manufacturer of hobby kilns and has the best programmer we have seen. Skutt have spent years perfecting this excellent glass kiln. We think that it's the perfect combination of top firing and straight forward programming which makes this kiln extremely hard to beat. Ideal for glass fusing, slumping and casting.

The HotStart Pro is easy to use, whether you are a beginner or a professional glass worker. We highly recommend this for both quality and value for money. The HotStart Pro is similar to the Firebox 14, with the same great controller, but with a smaller chamber size.
We do not recommend regularly firing over 820C in this kiln as it can shorten the life of the elements. If you wish to use high firing techniques such as pot melts on a regular basis, we would recommend a Kilncare kiln such as the Hobbyfuser.
This is a stock product.
The HotStart Pro is a top firing kiln, with the elements in the lid. The lid itself is a lightweight brick construction coated with refractory cement. It has a cool-touch handle and a prop to keep the lid open when filling or emptying the kiln. The chamber is also made from lightweight brick, which is used because it is able to expand and contract as the kiln heats and cools. It also helps reduce the overall weight of the kiln. The whole kiln is set on a sturdy metal stand.

One of the best features of the HotStart kiln is the reliable and easy to use Glassmaster LT 3 button controller which provides features for both the beginner and the advanced artist. Starting with simple factory set programmes can save a lot of time and a lot of glass. However, as you become familiar with the glass kiln this controller allows you to modify the settings during firing or design your own firings with five additional eight segment programmes, providing you with total programming freedom and confidence.
The chamber is circular (actually heptagonal) with a diameter of 38cm. The maximum circular piece you can fit inside would be 32cm in diameter. The maximum square piece would be 26cm x 26cm. For example you could fit 4 standard coasters in per firing. The depth of the kiln is 16.5cm. The kiln comes with props and a circular shelf of 32.5cm diameter. See below for Kiln shelf information:
