Bought the Bluebird XL as my first kiln and have had no issues so far. It only requires 120v and seems to be pretty efficient. The inside has a good bit of space and it'll be a long time before I need to go bigger. I highly recommend this kiln

Perfect 👌🏽


Perfect kiln I use it everyday the bead door really helps for quick in and outs

Great starter kiln!


I purchased the Paragon Bluebird XL as my first kiln in 2015. Absolutely zero issues in 4 years. You can definitely fit tall items, just have to lay them on their side. This kiln has a ton of space, don't let it fool you! Plugs into normal 120v outlets! Highly recommended.
