The Paragon Caldera can be used to make jewelry from the silver, bronze, and copper clays; fire ceramics, porcelain, or stoneware jewelry. Can also fire china, decals, be used in enameling, and glass. Glass compatibility and glaze color tests are fast and easy. The Caldera fires rapidly to 2350°F/1287°C.

You can order your Caldera with an optional (2"x2") 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 jewelry even with the window, but you will need to plug the window with ceramic fiber.)

The Sentry Xpress controller fires in either Ramp-Hold or Cone-Fire mode. Control both heating and cooling with simple 3-key operation. The Caldera includes an on/off toggle switch so you can turn off power to the controller when the kiln is idle.
