The Paragon Janus-27 Glass/Pottery Kiln

The new Paragon Janus-27 can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top and sidewalls.

This dual media kiln for sale enables you to select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in the glass position, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in the pottery position, heat comes from only the sidewall elements.

In the glass mode, fuse and sag large glass projects placed on a single shelf. In the pottery mode, fire to cone 10. You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces using the pottery mode.

The elements in the lid are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The groove dissipates heat efficiently.

The lid on the Paragon Janus-27 is easy to lift with the exclusive, patented Paragon spring counter-balance. For easier maintenance, we use 2” high blank wall bricks in the top row of the Janus-27. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading.

The patented control box on the Paragon Janus-27 dual media kiln opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position.

The digital Sentry 2.0 includes two modes: Cone-Fire with programmed slow cooling and 18-Segment Ramp-Hold. It is manufactured by the Orton Ceramic Foundation exclusively for Paragon.

A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon dual media kiln is built to last.

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a dual media kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc. If you are looking for something that is slightly larger, have a look at the Paragon Janus 1613 kiln.

  • Sidewall elements in dropped, recessed brick grooves are easy to replace.
  • Tapered peepholes for a wide view
  • A steel floor pan supports the entire brick bottom of each kiln.

  • Since the Paragon Janus-27 is designed for porcelain, it also easily fire ceramics, china paint, decals, gold and, of course, glass.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)

The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular kiln for sale. When estimating the price of the kiln for sale, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
