The HotBox E: Unparalleled Performance in a Compact Package

Craft your creative vision with ease using the HotBox E, a versatile and powerful electric kiln that combines user-friendly operation with the precision of high-end equipment. Ideal for artists working in pottery, glass, or jewelry, this 120-volt powerhouse is compact enough for any studio yet robust enough to produce professional-quality results.

Simplified Control for Complex Creations

Every HotBox E model comes standard with the intuitive Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller, a pilot light for safety, a solid metal stand, and a durable stainless steel jacket. Programming your firings is a breeze with the user-friendly interface; just scroll through the options with the up and down arrows to set your desired cone fire or ramp/hold profile.

Customizable to Fit Your Artistic Needs

The HotBox E adapts to your creative demands. Choose to expand its capabilities with an optional collar, either bead or blank, to reach firing temperatures of up to 2000°F and add an extra 4.5 inches of depth. For glass artists, the bead collar is a game-changer, offering a specialized door for the annealing process, ensuring your creations cool at the perfect rate to preserve their beauty and integrity.

Essential Accessories for Your Firing Success

The comprehensive Furniture Kit for the HotBox E is designed to maximize your kiln's space. It includes two layers of 5.5" x 5.5" shelving for efficient stacking of your ware, assorted small square posts to support your projects at varying heights, and a one-pound bag of kiln wash to keep your kiln clean and ready for action. This kit is an essential addition for serious artists.

Advanced Upgrades for Enhanced Operations

For those seeking even greater control over their firing conditions, the Solid State Relay upgrade is an excellent investment. This feature, suitable for up to 20 amps with 1 phase wiring, ensures smoother power control to your elements, leading to more consistent temperatures and extended element life.

Choose the HotBox E for a kiln experience that blends sophistication with simplicity, power with precision, and advanced features with absolute ease of use. Embrace the freedom to create, refine, and perfect your art with a kiln that understands your passion for perfection.
