F1418 (USA) Hobby Kiln

Small home kiln designed for Home Hobby/Craft Pottery Up to Cone 10

Model F1418-usa Fuego Craft Kiln reaches Cone 10 with power to spare. This ideally sized home craft kiln uses a minimal 240 volt 20 amp circuit. Includes simple One-Touch™ program control. Great for apartments or houses with smaller power systems.

The FUEGO has the full range of premium L&L features such as hard ceramic element holders, Type K 8 gauge thermocouple with ceramic protection tube, full support 14 gauge aluminized steel stand, two solid peephole plugs with full 1” view, proprietary reflective brick coating that protects brick and minimizes dusting, and three-year limited warranty. Brick thickness is 3” and also includes a layer of non-RCF fiber between the stainless steel case and firebrick for extra insulation, a door shut-off switch for the elements, and an extra peephole plug in the top for venting.

Initially designed for the international market where home voltage is typically 240 volts and either 13 or 15 amps the Fuego and Robin and available for the USA market with a 16 amp 240 volt design. The USA Fuego will heat Cone 10 in 3-1/2 hours!

Two 9” high sections stack on top of each other. The element connection box/control box hold the entire kiln together as an integrated unit. The kiln is very easy to assemble and disassemble.
Stainless steel wrapped around shaped firebrick. There are three adjustable clamps welded to each casing. All assembly is with stainless steel screws. The kiln sections sit on a separate stand.
Simple strong hinge with chain for door support
Heavy-duty 14 gauge full solid stand with multiple bends for strength. Legs bolt on with heavy 1/4-20 stainless bolts. The metal is aluminized for good corrosion resistance.
A proprietary brick coating is applied to all interior surfaces of the kiln. This is put on before the element holders are inserted. This coating penetrates the firebrick and fuses the surface on a microscopic level which helps prevent dusting and crumbling of the fragile firebrick.
Solid ceramic peephole plugs with full 1” diameter. Three total: one per section plus one in the lid for ventilation.
Single Zone.
8 Ga Type K Exposed Thermocouple in Mullite Protection Tube (4.5" long /114mm)
Mounted on control panel

Controls are mounted in a removable box.


Durability, Repairability, Better Heat Transfer. The smooth, hard surface of the inside ceramic channel allows the elements to expand and contract freely. No pins! The dense ceramic holders extend element life because they do not insulate the hot elements from the kiln interior.
Mullite protection tubes extend thermocouple life and keep kiln clean. The mullite protection tube keeps the metal oxides of the thermocouple tip from dropping off and contaminating your work.
Aluminized stands are extremely strong and corrosion resistant. The offer solid support under the kiln - unlike spot-welded angle stands that are common in the industry.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.
Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
Stainless Steel clips help the lid stay secure and durable. This extra step ensures that the lid won't slip out of the stainless steel band.
Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting kiln.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.


K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength

Ease of Use

Four-Key Control that Redefines Simplicity • Perfect for Schools & Hobbyists
Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln.

The bottom can be easily reversed in case of a firing mishap.


Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury in schools
All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch


The combination of 1/2" diameter element coils, the doubled surface area of the Quad element design, and superior heat transfer of L&L's patented ceramic element holders, make this the best element system in the world today. 


Pyrocil thermocouples are sensitive but limited to about 2200°F but offer greater sensitivity to temperature change and so may be appropriate in applications below 2200°F that require sensitivity. NOTE: Price of upgrade is per each thermocouple. 


The Vent Control allows you to automatically control the operation of the Vent-Sure kiln vent with one of the outputs from the DynaTrol (or Genesis). 

The L&L Vent-Sure Kiln Vent is the most powerful downdraft kiln vent on the market today. That means you have more flexibility in the installation.
