Working with clay as a hobby is one of the great joys of life. If you can fire your work immediately in your own kiln you have more control and immediate pleasure. Paying a little more for a high quality kiln is worth it in better results, higher satisfaction, and less trouble. Our instruction manual alone is like an education in ceramics.
