About the Skutt KS1018
KilnSitter Controllers have been used reliably on Skutt Kilns for over 50 years. Many artists still prefer the traditional close interaction of firing a kiln manually.
The KilnSitter is a mechanical control that fires your kiln by the time and temperature method of heat treatment using pyrometric cones or bars. After being exposed to the propper time and temperature (heatwork) the cone or bar softens and bends to a predetermined ange, shutting off the kiln.
The temperature and heating rate of the KilnSitter (KS) kilns are controlled by switches that you turn up in intervals.
A unique feature of the KilnSitter line of Skutt kilns is that all models (except the KS614-3" and the KS609) can be expanded by inserting a 4.5" tall brick ring between the sections. It should be noted that the use of the ring limits the maximum firing temperature to Cone 1 (2100 Degrees F) for most models. This ring can be added or removed between firings.
Limit timers should always be ordered as a safety backup to prevent over fires. They are listed as an optional feature and must be ordered at the time the kiln is ordered.
Here is the wide-mouth capacity of a 10-sided kiln with the loading ease of a 2-section kiln. Capable of firing to Cone 10, these kilns are perfect for firing fragile porcelain ware. KS-1018's are also excellent for firing heavy stoneware pieces that are difficult to lift out of deeper kilns. Although similar capacity is available in our 8-sided kilns, many users prefer our KS-1018's because they are so convenient. And you can still add a 4-1/2" blank ring for increased Cone 1 capacity.

The New Skutt Lid LifterThe New Lid Lifter makes Skutt 10 and 12-sided lids some of the lightest on the market. In fact you can now lift them with just a finger. The lid brace has been redesigned for added strength and now has 2 positions. The innovative Center Pivot Design distributes the force on the lid across 2 points as opposed to only one.
It ships fully assembled on the kiln. Unlike some other brands there is no awkward loading of the springs required. The kiln remains completely sectional for moving and repairs. The lid can be effortlessly and safely detensioned by simply raising the lid and sliding out the tension rod. It really is that easy!
