Deluxe ceramic fiber lid
The CS-19D heats from the top for even heat distribution across the glass surface . The lid elements are completely embedded in a deluxe,lightweight ceramic fiber lid . The lid has no grooves .

Kiln lifts out of the way for hassle-free loadng
The CS-19D is dual-opening: You can open the kiln by lifting the kiln body and lid together or by lifting only the lid . Lift the kiln body out of the way to assemble glass directly on the shelf; open the lid to loadglass over a slumping mold .
Since the kiln lifts up and out of the way,you can assemble glass inside the kiln directly onto a shelf . Add stringersand frit to delicate designs without having to move the glass again . When the kiln is full,merely lower the kiln over the shelf .
The kiln is easy to open because of three counter-weight springs mounted under the base . The kiln base extends 4 in the back to support the weight of the kiln when in the open position . The base comes with mar-proof rubber feet .
When opening the CS-19D kiln body,the body and lid must stay together . The kiln is equipped with safety latches on the side: The gravity-operated top latch holds the lid closed when lifting the body; the lever-operated bottom latch holds the kiln body closed when lifting the lid .
Protective steel lid cover
Look at the details of a Paragon,and you will find ideas that were born of common sense . The top of the lid is protected with a painted sheetmetal cover . The sheetmetal is bent to cover the sides of the lid and then welded at the corners . You will be amazed at the sturdy construction and attention to detail that has made Paragon kilns renowned among glass fusers . The self-adjusting lid floats at fusing temperatures to maintain contact with the kiln body .
Reliability at the heart of the kiln
The CS-19D has a two-year warranty . A heavy steel base supports the reversible brick bottom completely . These features are extra assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last . For your convenience,flip a switch to reboot the controller . The large,comfortable wooden handles on the lid and kiln stay cool to the touch .
Paragon kilns are made in America to exacting standards . For your peace of mind,kilns go through a 15-step,rigorous inspection before they are crated and shipped .
