I purchased used Jen-Ken a well over a year ago and I haven't had any
trouble out of it as of yet. It's a good bit older than ten years old I
believe. Inside dimensions are around 21 X 27. I've fired 25 - 30 times to 06
bisque and cone 6 glaze with pretty good results. I managed to get a manual
from the manufacturer if you need one.
When I was a kid the other kids would call me dirt Claude now I guess I've
evolved into ,,,,,,,,Clay Claude ?

Hi Priscilla, I've been using a Jen-Ken since 1975, The model number has since faded away but its the big 31" X 24" there a bouts. I purchased it in like new condition for $300. Used it to teach
with for five years, then went into storage. Dragged it back out in 1994, polished it off, installed new wire and it still works like a charm. It also survived 4 local moves. I'm trying to find
something wrong with it so I can justify buying a new one, but so far I've been unsuccessful. One of these days I would like to have a kiln that has those computer controlled switches. I here
they are pretty neat.
