Paragon Janus-1613, 240 volt, 1 phase.
The Janus-1613 Glass/Pottery Kiln
The heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Stained glass and ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment that you will never outgrow. Own a Janus-1613 and you can have those moments whenever you want.
Glass and clay firing modes
Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets in clay or glass. Make treasured gifts. When you own a Paragon kiln, you can experiment with new ideas to your heart’s content.
The new Paragon Janus-1613 can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top and sidewalls.
Select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in glass mode, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in pottery mode, 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.
Advanced element grooves
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, evenly radiating heat onto the glass.
Heavy duty components
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 kiln is built to last.
Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available.
Refractory coating hardens the lid surface
A large, tapered peephole offers a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. The peephole, both sides of the lid and top rim of sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust.
Glass/pottery selection switch

Thermocouple with "special limit" wire
The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼" wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.
Kiln Comes with Two Heavy Duty Rolling Stands, 24" Square x 12" High
Two deluxe kiln stands with locking casters are included with the kiln. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when it is not in use. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of one of the stands. The stands are rock solid.
The stands have solid tops to support the firebrick bottom of your kiln from edge to edge. They fit together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Stands ship unassembled.)
Designed for production
Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.
