Why buy a kiln from Warm Glass?  

We have an experienced team who will support you every step of the way, including free technical help if you need it. Call us on 01934 863344, and we will find the best setup for you. If you find this kiln cheaper elsewhere, please contact us and we'll do our best to match it. 

Special features:

  • The floor of the Grand-fuser is made from high grade, lightweight insulation bricks that give both a structurally steady surface to place the work on and a thermally steady base to aid in maximum glass results.
  • "Infra-red" quartz heating elements, designed for high performance and effective insulation. This means your Hobbyfuser will make the crucial ramp from 700°C to 800°C in as little as 9 minutes.
  • The stainless steel lid is lined out with press-cut, non-ceramic fibre. This eliminates the risk of brick dust particles dropping from the lid and onto your glass.
  • A fast response thermocouple to avoid lag between the kiln temperature and the controller reading.
  • A British company, on hand to offer great advice and post-customer care.

I love my Hobbyfuser drop out and it's very versatile. The controller is very simple and the warm glass instructional video really helped me overcome my controller fears, very very easy to use and adjust after the programme has started. However I cannot understand why it comes with bumpers around the walls, this makes loading the supplied shelf painful from barked knuckles unless wearing gloves; you can't make up on the shelf and then load into the kiln. I think I will have to buy a smaller shelf. It's easy to remove the layer of bricks for deeper work. The stand is excellent and although the wheels are expensive they are chunky; I've had to move the kiln a couple of times due to workmen and I can move and lock into position. This will be my one and only video but if buying again I would definitely get a clamshell.

WARM GLASS RESPONSE - Hi Bev, Thanks for your feedback. The easiest answer to this is to use slightly taller shelf posts to support the shelf. I hope this helps!

I bought this as was so happy with my HF3 (non drop out) and wanted both a second kiln and one in which to do drop outs. Was pleased to find it has extra bricks so inside is same dimensions as non drop out, unless you remove them to do a drop out, thus performs same as HF3 non drop out in full fuse, tacks etc. Works just as expected from the off. Fab piece of engineering, and British too.

Claire Munday

Had my kiln for a year now. When I purchased it I was not far off from being a complete novice in glass work. This kiln is easy to use and to programme your own schedules in. I bought the deeper version knowing that I would be progressing to drop outs. It is a good size for a hobbyist. Love this kiln.
