Paragon QuikFire 6—From Zero to 1000°F in Five Minutes!
The Quik-Fire 6 brings instant gratification to ceramics, glass fusing, enameling, and china painting. Small glass pieces can be fired and cooled to room temperature in only 30 to 40 minutes. Small ceramic pieces take only 40 to 50 minutes. No more waiting to fill your larger kiln to test-fire a new technique or new glaze. No more waiting until morning to see freshly fired ware.
Experimenting with the QF-VI is fun. Instead of risking a good piece of greenware on an untried technique, you can fire throw-away clay scraps and view the results in minutes. This kiln is a learning tool you will use over and over, whether you’re a beginner or a master.
The QuikFire is a ceramic fiber shell with an embedded element. It measures 6" x 6" x 6" inside. The shell rests on a ceramic fiber base with steel stand. The QuikFire is rated to 2000°F. It fires on 120 volts and needs no other heating source. At only 1560 watts, it uses less power than many hair driers.
To see how your work is progressing, tilt the shell up an inch for several seconds. Read temperature at a glance with the built-in pyrometer, which indicates when to start watching the ware inside the kiln.
You can make projects faster with two or more shelves. As the kiln is firing, prepare your next project on the spare shelf in the furniture kit. Remove the first shelf and insert the second. Leave items on the hot shelf that need slow cooling. The shelf keeps the pieces warm.

“Everyone loves the QuikFire. While your main work is firing, you can have fun with the QuikFire.”—Dan Fenton, Fenton Glass Studio, Oakland, California
