About the Skutt GP706 Glass Kiln
The Original - This is quite possibly the first commercially available Glass Fusing kiln available on the market. Inspired by genius Bullseye Glass co-founder, Boyce Lundstrum, the GP706 became a staple among the early pioneers of glass fusing.
- The perfect starter kiln. Large enough to easily fuse a 12" platter.
- A computer control is available on the HotStart Pro model.
Makes moving, repair and installation much easier.
The GP706 Furniture Kit Includes:
1 - 13" x 3/8" Thick (Round) Shelf
3 - 1" Posts

The GP706 comes with an analogl pyrometer that reads the temperature of the kiln chamber in degrees Fahrenheit. Since it is an analog pyrometer (as opposed to digital)it does not require batteries and can be mounted right to the kiln. The Pyrometer comes fully installed on the kiln.
The temperature rate (speed at which the kiln heats up) is controlled by the infinite switch on the kiln. It will take a while to learn the switch settings that create the rate increases you need. It absolutely imperative that you monitor the kiln at all times. When the kiln reaches the temperature you are aiming for you can turn the switch off or you can control the rate of cooling also by using the switch. if all this is too much for you, you may want to upgrade to the HotStart Pro which has a programmable controller.
Full Coverage Element Design
The element routing pattern in the lid perfectly matches the opening in the chamber with grooves spaces evenly across the lid. What does this mean? It means extremely even heating across your glass, that’s what..
Optional Viewing Window
Get the most out of your kiln by adding the optional view window and Adjustable Rolling Stand. The viewing window allows you to look into the kiln while it is actually firing so you can see if that piece is perfectly fused or slumped without losing heat by having to open the lid. The Adjustable Rolling Stand allows you to raise the kiln to a level that is comfortable for you. Watch this video to see what it looks like.
Great for Platters
This kiln will hold up to a 12 inch platter. Can you say dinner ware set? It’s 6 inch depth even allows you to use up to 4″ deep slump molds.
Unlike most warranties, Skutts covers Parts AND Labor.
Serviced by the most extensive, knowledgeable and talented distributor network in the industry.
Backed by a company whose mission statement is “We help you make great things”. When your kiln is down, you can’t make great things.
Moving - Imagine trying to move a kiln into the basement or through a narrow door without being able to break it down into sections.
Repair - No more standing on your head in the kiln to replace those bottom elements or removing every brick in the kiln to get to the one you want to replace. Just remove the control box, unhook the buckles and place the section you want to work on on a table.
Replacement - We hope nothing really bad happens to your kiln … but … if it does, isn’t nice to know you can replace one bad section instead of the whole kiln?
And So Much More!
When you are buying a kiln, you are not just buying the equipment, you are also buying the service that comes before and after the sale. From the moment Skutt cuts that first brick to the day you open the box, to the day you are ready to retire it, Skutt's reputation is on the line and we take that very seriously.
Plugs Into Household Voltage
Nothing against electricians, but who really enjoys paying to have their house rewired. With the HotStart Pro you take it out of the box, plug it into any spare 120V outlet you have in the house and you are ready to start fusing. Okay, it does need to be a grounded outlet.
