  •   wishing for molds
By on
Pros : I love this little kiln since I mostly wanted to make "eyes" and nuggets of any color. Works beautifully with the thin fire paper. Have been having a ball with it.
Cons : Now wishing I had the $ to buy a larger kiln since there aren't any molds. Didn't care for the fiber paper or instructions.

  •   It's doings what's it supposed to do
By on
Pros : For a project I needed opal glass nuggets from 10 to 15 mm (approximately) and the ready-made were not quite good - limited colors do not allow to create "shadowed" realistic effect. With this small kiln I solved my problem easily. Allows to make 3-5 nuggets at a time even with the simplest microwave I used - 650 watts or so. It's simple, handy, inexpensive and allows to create some small but interesting details for a stained glass project if you need something like a bud or a bee and do not want (or there is just no space) the soldered lines.
Cons : None so far.

  •   Instructions Seriously Lacking!
By on
Pros : Good for firing small pendants and earrings. Much cheaper than a regular kiln. Also, you do not need a special area for a real kiln. It's also quick and relatively easy once you work out the best way to use it.
Cons : The instructions are poor! They only mention firing on full power. I have found this does not work well. I ruined a lot of glass to start with. I have found that 3-4 minutes on 50% power to slowly warm up the kiln and then 3-4 minutes on 75% power works well. This also depends on whether you are fusing 2 or 3 pieces of glass. It is recommended not to fuse more than 6mm in total. It is also fine to have a quick peek to check how the fusing is going. Some instructions tell you not to peek under any circumstances. The other problem I had initially was that the paper I was provided left the piece with sharp edges and a rough bottom. Now that I use Bullseye thinfire paper I have no problems with this.
Other Thoughts : More detailed instructions would have been really useful. Hope all this helps new people to fusing without the enormous amount of frustrations that I have experienced.
