I have been a practicing potter for over 60 years, starting with my first studies in 1947. I used several small kilns but as my skills progressed became interested in a serious kiln. This was before the Internet, but I researched kilns through Ceramics Monthly and decided to buy an early square L&L kiln. My decision was mainly based on the element holders where the unprotected grooves often broke in my earlier kilns.

Diane chooses to fire in an L&L JD230 for number of reasons. The fully opening lid allows her to load her larger sculptures in without the impediment of a lid prop and the durable ceramic holders have kept the kiln in like-new condition.  She switched to L&L because of the deterioration of the element channels in her last kiln.  She is commonly loading larger tiles and needs the extra durability on the faces of the firebrick.  

Conestoga has always used L&L kilns – going back over 30 years. Why? They hold up to the heavy use of this ambitious program.

These kilns keep looking new for decades because of the element holders. Now with the zone control, they fire absolutely evenly from top to bottom. All of this excellent engineering, along with their reasonable prices, make L&L the best electric kiln on the market.
