I am curious for the reasoning behind wanting an electric kiln for firing to ^10.
What sort of work do you do (clay bodies, glazes, etc) that ^10 oxidation
firing will do you well?
My relative inexperience has observed/learned that the reduction possibilities
in ^10 are quite wonderful but that many.most other effects/etc. can be well achieved
in ^6 oxidation. For now the public studio in which I work is the place I get
access to the ^10 world and home is the domain of ^6. Best of both worlds, really.
I've been hearing the siren calls of a gas-fired kiln from my back yard.
It may not even be *this* back yard (since a move in a year or loss seems
in the offing), but I look forward to exploring reduction firing at home.
Will I jump to ^10? It will be good to have that capability, but I'm not
convinced I'll do that for economic and ecological reasons.

Does anyone have recommendations as to which brand is most reliable?
Thanks for any replies.
