PREPARING FOR USE: Please take this kiln out from its original packaging and connect it to a power source. Now your kiln is ready for work. IMPORTANT: We have tested each kiln BEFORE we have sent it to our customers, but in any case, when you wish to use it for the first time please heat up this kiln for approximately 5 minutes only to allow water, oils etc to evaporate (light smoke or light smell is possible in first heating as well) from the chamber and the inside of the kiln. Now let the kiln to cool down before you start your works. If this kiln is used less than once per month please repeat this process each time the kiln is used. SAFETY AND HEALTHY: Always make sure that the door is closed properly to speed up a heating process and to reach high possible temperature inside the chamber. This kiln has a secure switch under the door that disconnects the kiln from a power supply in case the door is open so always make sure that the door is closed properly! Always use heat resistant gloves when using the kiln. Do not pick up the kiln by the red handle and do not leave it to cool down with the door open. Do not place a hot kiln on any flammable and/or combustible materials as it will be extremely hot on high temperatures and may cause a fire. Keep out of the reach of children as the body of the kiln gets very hot from the high temperature inside the chamber. When the kiln is in use please never leave it unattended because of the high temperatures reached. 90% of heating processes take less then 1 hour (usually 40-60 minutes). Please never heat up this kiln continuously more then 1.5 hours (90 minutes). If this kiln is not in use please disconnect it form a power supply. This kiln should be fixed on a ceramic (tile) or metal top for easy operation of the door and to provide good heat resistance between the working kiln and the surface it is positioned on.
