The two models I am looking at both are single phase programmable top
loading kilns and are
more-or-less in the same price range. The Cress is model ET2831 an the L&L
is model e28T both
are rated to cone 8.

i would NEVER buy any kiln except an l&l. the ceramic element holders are
the difference. changing elements is a breeze. no pins. no broken bricks from
pins. i have a 20 year old l&l and it is still in great condition. had to
change to wiring in the control box a year or so ago. the tech guy is awesome.
spent about an hour on the phone with me and talked me right through the
process. bought a new computer controll j230 about a year ago and it is a dream.
the programing uses takes in to account heat work.
