Paragon QuikFire 6−From Zero to 1000℉ in Five Minutes!
The QuikFire 6 brings instant gratification to ceramics,glass fusing,enameling,and china painting . Small glass pieces can be fired and cooled to room temperature in only 30 to 40 minutes . Small ceramic pieces take only 40 to 50 minutes . No more waiting to fill your larger kiln to test-fire a new technique or new glaze . No more waiting until morning to see freshly fired ware .
The QuikFire 6 is a great kiln for checking a concept,said Lynn Perry . The last time I used the QuikFire,I wanted to confirm that a small new earring design would bend rather than just drawn into itself,and within 30 minutes I had my answer . I put together 80 pairs of earrings after the verification . If I had just taken a chance and not done a test,it could have been a very expensive mistake,because I would have not oriented the pieces properly on my forms and not gotten a bend .
Demonstrate the QuikFire to your family and watch their astounded reaction . Demonstrate it at craft shows,and crowds will gather .
Experimenting with the QuikFire is fun . Instead of risking a good piece of greenware on an untried technique,you can fire throw-away clay scraps and view the results in minutes . This kiln is a learning tool you will use over and over,whether you're a beginner or a master .
The QuikFire is a ceramic fiber shell with an embedded element . It measures 6 x 6 x 6 inside . The shell rests on a ceramic fiber base with steel stand . The QuikFire is rated to 2000℉ . It fires on 120 volts and needs no other heating source . At only 1560 watts,it usesless power than many hair driers .
To see how your work is progressing,tilt the shell up an inch for several seconds . Read temperature at a glance with the built-in pyrometer,which indicates when to start watching the ware inside the kiln .
You can make projects faster with two or more shelves . As the kiln is firingprepare your next project on the spare shelf in the furniture kit . Remove the first shelf and insert the second . Leave items on the hot shelf that need slow cooling . The shelf keeps the pieces warm .

A QuikFire 6 That Went Around the World
By Betty Jean Scott (Las Vegas,Nevada)
My Paragon QuikFire 6 has traveled with me around the world . After two years in Moscow,we were assigned to three years at the embassy in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia .
I create lamp work beads over flame and use my Paragon kiln for annealing the glass . But mostly I create fused glass cabochons for my jewelry . I will often spend over an hour filling the 6 x 6 shelf with several completely different intricate designs before placing the hood on top and firingthe glass .
Because of the design of the kiln,it is very easy to raise the hood and use my tools to modify the shapes of the glass while it is hot . firing take less than an hour,including the stepped flashing,and within three hours the glass is out of the kiln,and I am ready to create again .
During our time overseas,I made many friends There is something about ladies and crafts that provide a common bond . I used my kiln to introduce my friendsto glass,and worked with each of them to bring their creations to reality . One of my honors was to be invited to bring my jewelry to the Australian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur for a show and sell .
Many friendsand their families,all over the world today,are wearing glass made in my Paragon Kiln . I am very happy with my Paragon Kiln,and I know it will continue to bring my creative ideas to life for many years to come .
