Kiln Facts: Why choose an L&L Kiln?

Top Features of L&L Kilns


Durability, Repairability, Better Heat Transfer. The smooth, hard surface of the inside ceramic channel allows the elements to expand and contract freely. No pins! The dense ceramic holders extend element life because they do not insulate the hot elements from the kiln interior.
Mullite protection tubes extend thermocouple life and keep kiln clean. The mullite protection tube keeps the metal oxides of the thermocouple tip from dropping off and contaminating your work.
Aluminized stands are extremely strong and corrosion resistant. The offer solid support under the kiln - unlike spot-welded angle stands that are common in the industry.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.


Zone control gives you the utmost in controllable temperature uniformity. The DynaTrol separately measures temperatures in the bottom, middle and top of the kiln and automatically adjusts the heat output of three zones during the entire firing.
DynaTrol with 4 Easy-Fire programs (Slow Bisque, Fast Bisque, Slow Glaze, Fast Glaze), 6 custom programs, PreHeat, Delay, Program, Segment Review, and Diagnostics. Zone control included on most kilns.

L&L Kilns are Built to Last

L&L kilns are the most "industrialized" kilns in the "hobby-kiln" class. They last for decades. Take a look at some of our top-rated features like hard ceramic element holders, ceramic protection tubes, super-strong stands, spring hinge systems, arched roofs in front-loading kilns and on and on. We back this up with a three-year limited warranty and, for our School-Master K12 kilns, a five-year limited warranty.


Everything in an L&L kiln is logical. We think ahead and try to anticipate the problems you will encounter. That has been our tradition since L&L was started.


We engineer serviceability into every kiln. Control panels are easy to open and service. Our unique hard ceramic element holders and ceramic terminal boards make changing elements something that anyone can do.
