Skutt’s KM-1027 kiln is hands-down one of our most popular models because of its large 7-cubic-foot capacity and ability to fire to Cone 10 with consistent results, firing after firing. If you work in porcelain or stoneware, this could be the kiln for you.
The KM-1027 comes standard equipped with Skutt’s easy-to-use 12-key controller. If you are new to ceramics, you will find this controller easy to master; in cone-fire mode, you simply enter your target cone and then push a button to program a slow, medium, or fast firing program. Of course, even the seasoned potter will find themselves using these time-saving buttons, but if you do intend to write your own programs, the Skutt controller makes that easy, too. This computer stores up to twelve programs that can feature up to 32 steps each. Whether you want to slow-cool your cone 6 glazes, promote crystal development, or fuse glass, this controller can handle it.
The KM-1027 is sectionally-constructed, which means you can easily disassemble the kiln’s chamber when you are moving or repairing your kiln. The KM-1027 comes standard with 2.5” brick -- if you are interested in 3” brick, please see our listing for the KM-1027-3.
Skutt kilns all feature balanced elements -- because the top and bottom of a kiln tend to lose heat faster than the center, Skutt has solved that problem by placing more powerful elements in your kiln’s top and bottom positions.
Every kiln of the KM Skutt Series is equipped with a current sensor that allows remote technicians to troubleshoot your kiln right over the phone. When you purchase a Skutt kiln, you can know that troubleshooting help will be there when you need it.
Options for Customization:
First, select the correct voltage and phasing for your space; if you are unsure, please consult with an electrician before placing your order.
Next, you may choose to upgrade to APM elements. If you fire to Cone 10 multiple times per week, these long-lasting elements will save you time and money in the long run. You can also upgrade the 12-key controller to a touchscreen controller, which makes operation as easy as working a smartphone.
Finally, you may opt to order your kiln with the suggested furniture kit, which includes eight 22" half-shelves and a 36-piece large post assortment including six each of 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", and 6" kiln posts, as well as the Envirovent vent system which is highly recommended for closed-air spaces.
