    The portable and convenient Paragon FireFly Digital will give you unbridled freedom. It plugs in almost anywhere on a household 120 volt outlet. Take this kiln to seminars or on vacation.

    Test Glazes with Digital Accuracy

    Test glass and glazes in the FireFly Digital before firing production loads in a large kiln. Perfecting colors for larger work is faster and cheaper in a small test kiln than in a large kiln. Test glazes while you feel the momentum instead of when you have enough ware to fill your large kiln.

    An Excellent Classroom Kiln

    Because new teachers often inherit bags of unlabeled clay, many kiln loads have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature. With your own classroom test kiln, you can fire small clay samples to determine the correct temperature. Your students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday instead of when the school’s large kiln is available.

    Teachers are delighted to find that the FireFly Digital is relatively inexpensive. The kiln creates enthusiasm for the clay program, because students see their test results right away. And testing in a small kiln will vastly increase your students’ knowledge of glazes.

    Good Choice for Beginners

    The Paragon FireFly Digital fires rapidly with a digital Sentry Xpress controller at the precise rate and temperature you choose. The controller stores up to 4 custom programs in memory. The display shows the kiln temperature throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C. Program up to 8 segments, or steps, per firing. Duplicate the firing schedule of your large kiln. If you know the natural cooling rate of your large kiln, you can even program that cooling rate in the FireFly Digital.

    You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger one, continue to use the small one for testing or small projects. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems.

    Watch the Interior Through the Optional Glass Window

    You can order the FireFly Digital with an optional glass window in the top. The glass window is rated to 2300°F (1260°C), so it can easily withstand glass-fusing temperatures. Please note, however, that the window reduces the kiln’s maximum temperature to approximately 2100°F (1148°C) and is meant for glass fusing. (You can still fire porcelain and stoneware even with the window, but you will need to plug the window with ceramic fiber.)

    Durable Paint

    The FireFly Digital switchbox is coated with a durable high temperature, water-base finish. We chose this type of paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.

    Built-in Stand, Long-Lasting Electrical Parts

    A built-in 2 3/4" tall steel base with mar-proof rubber feet covers the entire firebrick bottom. Place the kiln directly onto a heat-resistant work surface. No extra stand is needed.

    A stainless steel heat shield inside the switch box protects wiring from contact with the case. Costly nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. Slots on the top, side, and bottom of the switch box circulate air for the long life of the electrical components. In addition, Paragon kilns go through a 15-step quality control inspection.
