Skutt’s KM-1027-3 kiln is one of our most popular models because of its 6.4-cubic-foot capacity and ability to fire to Cone 10 with consistent results, firing after firing. This model features thicker 3” brick throughout, which makes this kiln particularly energy efficient -- a great idea if you routinely high fire. If you work in porcelain or stoneware, this could be the kiln for you.
The KM-1027-3 comes standard equipped with Skutt’s easy-to-use 12-key controller. Even a beginner will find this controller easy to master; in cone-fire mode, you simply enter your target cone and 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-1027-3 is sectionally-constructed, which means you can easily disassemble the kiln’s chamber when you are moving or repairing your kiln. Your kiln will have the versatility to fit through just about any doorway. The KM-1027-3 comes standard with 3” brick (as opposed to the standard 2.5” brick). The KM-1027-3 also features 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. This standard feature is just one more way in which Skutt kilns are some of the best on the market.
Every kiln of the KM Series is equipped with a current sensor that allows remote technicians to troubleshoot your kiln right over the phone -- this sensor reads your voltage and amperage with just a button touches on your kiln’s controller, and can also check the board temperature, LED readout and a host of other useful troubleshooting data. Skutt’s products are some of the best out there, and their customer service also sets a high bar.
Options for Customization:
The KM-1027-3 can be ordered with a few different customization options. 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 will save you time and money in the long run. You can also upgrade the 12-key controller to a touchscreen, 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 20" half-shelves and six each of 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", and 6" kiln posts. You can also add the Envirovent system, which is highly recommended for closed-air spaces.
