The Prometheus PR1 For Art Clay, PMC, Jewellery, Annealing Beads, Dichroics, Enamels, Glass Fusing, Moulding, Sagging, And Slumping, Lost-Wax Casting, And Metal Clays.

The Prometheus Pro-1 PRG is a 1000°C, rectangular, plug-in, front-opening, table-top, ceramic-fibre kiln, with a ramp-hold Orton AutoFire Xpress 3-key digital programmer.


The UK-EU kiln is rated at 220V-240V 700W, so it can use a regular mains socket. To comply with UK-EU safety regulations, the elements are embedded in rigidised ceramic fibre: an important safety feature. However, never get careless: kilns are very hot and connected to the mains.

The external dimensions are 225mm x 240mm x 295mm high. The case is slotted for air circulation and has an integral stand with four rubber feet. The door opens 90°, and has an adjustable door catch and a vent-hole for processes that release fumes. The vent also serves as a peephole: it's not a glass window. The shipping weight, including the box, is about 6kg.

The firing chamber measures 115mm x 135mm x 70mm high, and heats from the top, both sides, and the bottom with the fast-firing element safely embedded in the fibre. The kiln has a silent long-life solid-state relay and a nickel-chromium K-type thermocouple.


The programmer's electronic display prompts for heating rates, target temperatures, and hold times, making it easy to set up and re-use accurate heating, holding, and cooling sequences.


The accessories for this kiln are in the on-line shop:

List. stacking shelf kit and shelf paper
List. charcoal for the stainless steel box used for firing some metal clays
List. ceramic fibre cloth
List. ceramic block
List. HEPA dust mask
List. glare-resistant glasses
List. heat-resistant gloves

And finally, my opinion:

Ten years ago, Prometheus kilns were almost unknown. To create a market, we sold our own version of the Pro 1, renamed the Kitiki MiniKiln as part of our jewellery brand name Kitiki. Having created a UK market, the name Mini-Kiln was soon adopted, along with the text I wrote. You might have seen photos of it: black with a grey and peach-coloured fascia.

At the time, the programmer was a single-sequence controller: its one simple ramp-hold programme had to be set manually. However, every other kiln manufacture was starting to use built-in comprehensive programmers so, eventually, Prometheus released a programmable kiln. It's very important to understand that the current Mini-Kiln has a comprehensive digital programmer, not just a basic controller.

The digital programmer, an Orton AutoFire, allows you to set up, and re-use, fifteen accurate drying, heating, holding, and cooling sequences: and do something else whilst the sequence is running. A sequence can consist of up to five segments.
A segment is one step in a sequence: often the time it takes to reach a target temperature. For example: a segment could take 50 minutes to reach 650°C, could hold at 850°C for 12 minutes, or could cool down over two hours.

There is a version with pre-set programmes but I wouldn't pay extra for them because it's so simple to programme your own, and edit and save them: it's how you learn. And metal clays usually come with recommended firing programmes so use those at the beginning.

If you've read elsewhere that 1000°C will fire ceramics, that's not correct. You can work with some low-fire ceramics but for normal ceramics and porcelain you'd need a 1290°C kiln. Also, it does not have four elements: just one wrap-around element that heats the top, both sides, and the bottom.


Compared to the Paragon SC2, the MiniKiln has a smaller firing chamber, and it heats to 1000°C, not 1095°C. But it's about half the price.

The kiln is fired in the factory to harden the ceramic, so it may not look bright white. It's also important to understand that all ceramics discolour, might develop hairline cracks, or tiny bits may flake off: this does not affect its safety or use.


Some bronze and copper clays can be fired in activated charcoal granules in a stainless-steel container. The MiniKiln will hold a small container but most that I've seen are the wrong size or badly made. Any local engineering company will make a small stainless-steel box, with a lid.

Particulates represent a health risk if they're breathed in, so wear a HEPA mask when cleaning out your kiln, mixing kiln wash, and working with charcoals, ceramic-fibre blocks, cloths, and papers. And, ideally, use protective glasses.

If you want to touch anything hot or move your kiln before it's cooled off, it's important to wear heat-resistant gloves. And, if you want to look into a red-hot kiln, wear glare-resistant glasses which protect your eyes from IR and UV.


Use it for making jewellery, annealing beads and glass, painting china, applying decals, dental work, fusing dichroic glasses, enamelling, fire polishing, glass art, glass casting, fusing, sagging, and slumping, glass clays, heat treating, laboratory testing, lampwork, lost-wax casting, some low-fire ceramics, melting gold and silver, firing bronze and copper metal clays, moulding gun and model parts, pâte de verre, sintering gold and silver clays, staining glass, hardening and tempering blades, cutters, dies, and tools, wax burn out, and many other materials and processes.

Small kilns are perfect for jewellery-making, so you can use most popular small-scale materials such as Accent Gold, Art Clay metal clays, BullsEye glasses, dichroic glasses, enamels, GlasClay, Image Transfer Solution, Metal Clay Veneer, PMC silver clay, Prometheus bronze clay, ProCopper clay, and SilverEtch.
And there's an increasingly diverse range of other metal clays, such as Cinter, Clay Mania, Creative, Goldie, Hadar Jacobson, Metal Adventures, Meteor, Noble, and PMC Sterling.

You can make beads, bracelets, brooches, candle holders, chandelier components, decorations, earrings, figurines, fingerprint keepsakes, glass-art, jewellery, miniatures, gun and model parts, necklaces, ornaments, pendants, pet-id tags, rings, souvenirs, stained-glass designs, tableware, thimbles, tiles, tools, and trinkets, as unique hand-crafted pieces or repeatable stock for sale.


It's ideal for your arts centre, college, course venue, craft classes, dental or medical laboratory, engineering workshop, home business, jewellery studio, school, or technical facility. Especially as it has a two-year warranty.

It heats up quickly, so it's just right for a classroom, and it's small enough to pack away if you want an occasional hobby kiln. As it only weighs about 6kg, it's easy to take to craft fairs, demonstrations, and exhibitions. It's probably the most popular minikiln in the UK.


The MiniKiln is sometimes called an Art Clay kiln, a craft kiln, an enamelling kiln, a glass fusing kiln, a jewellery kiln, a hobby kiln, a metal clay kiln, a Kitiki MiniKiln, a PMC kiln, a Prometheus Kiln, a Prometheus Pro-1 Kiln, a Prometheus Pro-1 PRG Kiln, a SilverClay kiln, or a trinkets kiln: a measure of its popularity.


For help, or in the unlikely event of a fault, you can mail or call an engineer in the UK. However, checks, adjustments, and repairs are simple, needing little more than a PosiDriv screwdriver. Alternatively, we can service the kiln in our workshop at Cherry Heaven.

THE KITIKI MINIKILN: KILN FURNITURE

The Kitiki MiniKiln Kiln Furniture.

The international Pro 1 kilns don't come with a shelf. However, so you can start work straight away, a shelf is included in the price: one durable 150mm x 150mm x 6mm ceramic fibre shelf. You can easily cut it to the most useful size.

A shelf provides a smooth stable work surface, protects the floor of the kiln's interior from glass accidents, and helps to even out any small temperature deviations during annealing, enamelling, firing, and fusing as the elements turn on and off. And, as it's included in the price, it isn't an £18 extra.

There's an extra recommended kit, not included in the price: one ceramic-fibre shelf 150mm x 150mm x 6mm and four 12mm shelf posts. You can buy extra shelf kits in the on-line shop.

Depending on the material or process, and the sizes of your pieces, stacked shelves will hold more work, free up your time, and reduce the unit firing cost: so you might want another kit. This kiln has room for two.

UK-EU-US REGULATIONS AND GENERAL SAFETY

Electrical Spark. Kitiki Protective Heat-Resistant Gloves. Kitiki Protective Glare-Resistant Glasses. Kitiki Dry-Powder Fire Extinguisher.

UK, EU, And US Safety Regulations.

Prometheus kilns have elements that are safely embedded in rigidised ceramic-fibre: so there's no danger of a mains-voltage electric shock. And they're CE marked: the manufacturer's declaration that its product satisfies EU health, safety, and environmental protection legislation.


It'll be too late to think about safety practices after an accident. Apart from kilns and accessories, the on-line shop includes heat-resistant ceramic blocks and cloths, digital reminder-timers, fire extinguishers, heat-resistant gloves, glare-resistant glasses, and clear protective glasses.

All particulates represent a health risk if they're breathed in, so it's important to wear a HEPA mask when mixing powders, handling charcoal, sanding dried metal-clays, and cleaning out your kiln. And, ideally, use clear protective glasses.

It's important to have your fire extinguisher near your kiln. Read the instructions as soon as you unpack it, learn how to treat burns, buy a basic first aid kit, and fit a smoke alarm. Although I've never heard of a fire caused by a kiln.
