The TnF-27-3 is easier to load than the deeper studio kilns. It is only 22 ¼” deep, yet larger inside than the 29” deep 10-sided 24-series kilns.


The TnF-27-3 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and two sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.The top row of brick in the TnF-27-3 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.

The massive, 12-sided Paragon digital TnF-27-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up stacks of low-fire ware as well as porcelain and stoneware. It is rated to a full cone 10. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-27-3 is one of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.

During busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln. Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”

Paragon studio kilns have withstood years of abuse in school environments. High school ceramics teachers fire these kilns unmercifully, without remorse. Yet the kilns keep going. People swear by them.

Paragon Kilns Rolling Kiln Stand


The TnF 27-3 now comes with a deluxe rolling stand at no extra charge! The new 12" stand has locking casters, a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent, and a greenware drying rack.
You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use.

Easy Access Switch Box

Paragon kilns easy access to control panelHinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 & 12 sided TnF kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.

The TnF-27-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3” thick lid. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)
