Kiln question

I'm buying my first kiln and looking at a Paragon Express 1193 which has the internal size that i want. I looks like its for ceramics. I will be doing mainly fused glass would i be able to do it in this kiln? Also one has a 3 key digital controller and the other has an infinite control switch with a dawson kiln sitter and Limit timer...which would you suggest? Most of what I will be doing is fused glass jewelry and small bowls, vases etc.

Thanks so much,

Lori

Re: Kiln question

The Paragon site seems to list glass as one of its uses:

Re: Kiln question

Hi Lori,
I've found that over the years, when in doubt, I actually call & talk to the manufacturer. It has served me very well over the years & since this is an investment you'll be using (hopefully without problems!) it's worth the effort to do some research.
I hope you love working with glass!
Best,
ginger

Re: Kiln question

Thank you for your input. I did some fusing years ago with my sister and loved it just never have done it on my own. Crossing fingers. Will give the manufacturer a call.
