Enjoy the ease of a plug-in kiln without compromising on performance.


Plug-in kilns are a popular choice for many people for good reason:

✔️ Ease and speed of setting up

✔️ Save of installation costs

✔️ Ability to move the kiln to anywhere with a standard UK plug.

However, a 13-amp UK plug can only supply so much power at any given time. For many other kilns (especially kilns larger than 50L), this can often mean a compromise in maximum temperature.

For example, the IKON V46 (46 litres) plug-in kiln can reach a maximum temperature of 1300°C. However, its bigger brother, the IKON V61E (61 Litres) plug-in kiln, has a maximum temperature of 1200°C. This is because it takes more power to heat up a larger internal volume.

This can be acceptable of course, but if you want to enjoy the simplicity of a plug-in kiln, want the option to fire 1200°C+, and also require a larger kiln than the V46, this just won't do.

This is where the IKON V61 GXR comes in.

The engineers at Kilncare recently developed an upgraded version of the IKON V6E. Through making some serious upgrades to the insulation, they have managed to maintain the high maximum temperature enjoyed by the smaller IKON V46.

✅61 Litres -No compromise on internal space

✅1300°C -No compromise on maximum temperature

✅Plugs in to any UK plug -No compromise on simplicity

The IKON V61GXr does not take up any additional floorspace compared to the IKON V61E, although it is slightly taller due to the upgraded lid.

This kiln is probably our new favourite item on the store!

Here's how they did it:

  • Instead of 1 skin of micropore and 1 skin of fibre blanket, 2 skins of micropore and 1 skin of fibre blanket have been added.
  • New lid design which insulates the bricks. It is now insulated with 25mm micropore board. This heavily reduces temperature leakage from the lid.

Also included with your purchase:

✅ Free V61 furniture - Load your kiln with ease

✅ KCR32C controller included - Extremely simple to use, allowing you to get firing straight away

✅ 3-year warranty
