This is an AMAZING kiln. It's size makes it perfect for the hobbyist and the professional. What sets the 1193 apart from similar sized kilns is its solid brick bead door.
The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes Cone-Fire and 8-segment Ramp-Hold modes. (Note: Ramp-Hold and Cone-Fire on the Sentry Xpress do not include some of the advanced features of the 12-key Sentry 2.0.)
Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller for Ceramic Kilns
Fire to a pyrometric cone by merely entering cone number and slow, medium or fast speed.
Program Review lets you check the program you are about to fire.
Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Set the alarm to remind yourself to close a vented lid.
Design Ramp-Hold programs with up to 8 segments (steps).
Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
Hold (soak) the temperature in both Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold. Experiment with Hold to improve color saturation of china paints.
Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
Temperature display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
Thermocouple Offset adjusts the thermocouple readout.
Set the Delay to turn on the kiln later to suit your schedule.
Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, stuck relay or broken element.
12 Month Warranty
LED Lights show whether you are in program, review, or firing mode.
Colorful, illustrated instruction manual. Download it from the “Additional Information” section below to review these features in more detail.

Ships by convenient UPS
The 1193 can now ship by UPS. Enjoy lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.
A kiln you won’t outgrow
You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the small one for testing or small projects. Perfect a new design in the small kiln before running production quantities in the large kiln. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems and perfecting difficult glazes such as crystallines.
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.
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.
