I bought a glass kiln for the first time last year. I do mostly fused jewelry and glass painting so I bought a Jen Ken Kiln which is 11" x 4"deep. It has a digital controller which makes it very easy to program. It takes a standard 120v current so no special wiring was needed. I bought the kiln second hand from craigslist and it's been awesome. No problems whatsoever. It is a small kiln though so space is limited.
