Maximize Your Firing Flexibility with the Olympic HotBox 86E Kiln

The Olympic HotBox 86E stands as the pinnacle of compact kiln innovation, offering expansive possibilities with its detachable lid and collar for those artists seeking more depth and versatility. This model isn't just the largest of the Olympic's Hot Boxes featuring a detachable lid—it's a transformative tool for those who push the boundaries of creativity.

With an electronic controller and standard 120-volt operation, the HotBox 86E delivers high-performance firing up to Cone 10 at 2350°F within its ample 8"H x 8"W x 6.5"D interior. But when your projects demand more space, the optional collar extends the firing chamber to 11", all while maintaining a firing range up to 2000°F. The bead collar isn't merely an extension; it's an enhancement, complete with a door designed for the annealing process.

Every Olympic 120-volt electric kiln embodies reliability and convenience, from the reassuring glow of the pilot light to the robust metal stand and the enduring stainless steel jacket. Programming is intuitive and user-friendly, facilitated by the acclaimed Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller, where precise cone fire or ramp/hold settings are at your fingertips.

For those looking to take their firing capabilities to the next level, consider upgrading to either the Genesis touchscreen or the 12-key digital KilnStar controller. These state-of-the-art controllers offer additional user programs, delay start options, preheat functions, cone offset capabilities, and various features tailored for serious artists.

And if you want to watch your precise firing at work, consider adding a quartz viewing window. Two size/shape options to consider, a 2" round or a 2" x 4" rectangle window.

Oh, and for you glass artists looking to do some vitrigraphing, be sure to add on the fiber floor option!

For artists who prioritize organization and efficiency, the Furniture Kit for the HB86E is a game-changer, boasting dual layers of 6.5" x 6.5" shelving and a variety of posts for optimized stacking, all complemented by a pound of kiln wash to maintain your kiln's integrity.

Embrace the recommended Solid State Relay upgrade for unwavering power control up to 20 amps, ensuring that every firing is a testament to your commitment to excellence. Discover the power and precision of the Olympic HotBox 86E and let your artistry know no bounds.
