Absolutely Beyond Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, April 5, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Ease of use, quick and reasonable shipping costs, awesome results, did I mention easy to use???
Cons
That I didn't buy the kiln sooner
Other Thoughts
This is an absolutely AWESOME kiln. I am a beginner. The Delphi Glass Consultant worked with me to answer all of my questions and to ensure that I was buying the right kiln. It took only three days to receive. Did my first firing today. The results are incredible!!!!!! I had fun with the microwave kiln, which is a good way to start, and I plan to continue using that kiln for single quick piece work. I can't wait to go nuts with this kiln. I ordered a square mold so it looks like I will be expanding my limited ability to even more fun and interesting areas of the glass art industry. Thank You Delphi, for being so kind by answering my questions and not making me feel dumb. Also, thank you for expanding my hobby and jewelry making!

AbsolutelyThe Best!!!!!, February 7, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Very easy to use Excellent results Great for beginners who want nice pieces without the big expense. Fantastic way to practice so you can move into a bigger kiln Buy it!!!!! What do you have to lose
Cons
Can be a bit tricky at first but don't let this fool you!!!!! A bit pricey, but then again, I think it is unique and good technology
Other Thoughts
I LOVE this kiln. I am a beginner in the glass bead making community. Having made some real cool pieces with my hot head, I thought I would try this. I am getting awesome results and starting to build my stock for some spring and summer art shows. You really can't make a mistake because even the mistakes turn out cool. I have a dedicated microwave that I just use for my glasswork. Don't let this bother you. You can pick one up for little money at a rummage sale or a resale shop. I can't say enough good things about this kiln.
