love these 5 stars
By RobinLittle on January 6, 2015 - See all my reviews
Pros : Easy to cut, easy to use holds up for many firings. Great for making your own drop out molds
Cons : The thickness inhibits the use of small fine designs.

cheap crap 1 stars
By marcgordon on November 19, 2012 - See all my reviews
Pros : It's cheap!
Cons : This is the cheapest grade vermiculite I've ever seen, crumbles, dusty, guaranteed to wreck whatever you're working on . I bought it to confine casting pieces and found it a total waste. No matter how careful you are it will wind up in your piece.

Versatile 5 stars
By starrvelez on August 10, 2012 - See all my reviews
Pros : I love these! Not only can you get the perfect shape you desire, but it accepts the high temps in the kiln. It is perfect for my creative glass stylings and allows for more creativity.
Cons : A little messy to cut, but with practice and a great blade nothing is impossible.
Other Thoughts : Don't confuse this with the other high fire boards, the versatility and size of this are perfect for platters to ornaments. Your imagination dictates.

Warning Produces CO in Kiln 2 stars
By aslan96 on May 2, 2011 - See all my reviews
Pros : Sturdy easy to cut and light weight.
Cons : Produces Carbon Monoxoide when fired in a kiln. It set off my CO detector once it got over 1100 degrees.
Other Thoughts : This should come with a warning on it that when it is fired in a kiln it produces dangerous levels of Carbon Monoxide.

Great product overall 4 stars
By tanyabrennan (top contributor) on March 6, 2010 - See all my reviews
Pros : I love working with the vermiculite boards. They are great for "building" glass pieces on in layers and not having to carry something to the kiln that is not steady. I find them incredibly handy. They are also great for making tons of dots. Line them with thin fire and use your scraps to make dots. Fire once the board is full. It is low profile, so I can keep it in a drawer and keep working with it until full.
Cons : I stilted a board ONCE and it warped at 1500. I won't be able to use it again. I was very surprised that it bowed in the middle. Two pieces were ruined because of the warping. I still love these boards and will just never stilt mine again.
Other Thoughts : You can cut these boards into shapes and sizes, which is very handy. The vermiculite does leave some board powder residue behind on the kiln shelf after firing.

Vermiculite Board 5 stars
By janeeve on October 28, 2009 - See all my reviews
Pros : I LOVE THESE!!! I cut the 12" tiles into 4 piece to use in my kiln. They are perfect as I can still get my hands in when setting the tile down in the kiln. This allows me to set the tile in while keeping it perfectly flat. Nothing falls off, and I don't have to re-adjust anything before I close the lid! I have used them again and again and again. I have used thin-fire sheets on them for the most part, but find that after several firings there is enough of the powder left from the sheets that I can actually do several firings without anything. You go get a rougher back on the glass, but I don't care as most of my pieces I bead around so the back is covered any way. I have had the glass grab the tiles from time to time, so I would still recommend the thin fire. Using kiln shelves with kiln wash, etc. is just not my thing. I don't like having to re-coat the tiles again, and again. Also, I take my glass out when it is still pretty hot so these are great!
Cons : They are kind of messy...but that is the only negative I have. Of course, you can't use kiln wash with them as they can't get wet. But I prefer thin fire sheets any way.
Other Thoughts : Wish they made these for high fire ceramics...say to 2300 degrees or at least Cone 6.
