HF 1818

The HF 1818 is by far the most popular cone 10, personal-sized ceramic kiln model. It fits well into any small studio and the kiln shelves are very manageable and easy to load. On top of that, firing performance is spot-on. The HF 1818 is the perfect personal sized cone 10 ceramic kiln!

The HF 1818 features our Multi-Zone TAP I, Icon+ and Rampmaster II controls and is standard equipped with our exclusive Swing View Adjustable Viewing which you will absolutely enjoy.


Order yours with our Quiet Drive Solid State relay option for tight temperature control and longer element life.


Top Load

The HF 1818 is a top loading design and offers a chamber 17.5" diameter x 18 deep. The HF 1818 is, and always has been the most popular size for the individual cone 10 ceramic artist. Width and depth are perfect, shelves and ware are easy to load and the firing results are beautiful.

Wonderful Lid Handle

We love handles. Handles have to be properly sized and shaped for the job. Our lid handles make this point by offering an 8" handle that's easy to grasp and operate.

This wide, corner mounted handle allows for confident and easy lifting, even with a gloved hand. It's unlike any other and it's a joy to use.

Multi-Zone Control

The HF 1818 is designed with multi-zone control. Multi-Zone control means the kiln uses more than one thermocouple (temperature sensor) to control the heat in the firing chamber.

The kiln chamber is divided into heat zones, each with its own thermocouple. Each zone temperature is controlled very precisely. The end result is a very even temperature distribution from top to bottom.

2 Position Lid Vent

The HF 1818 is equipped with a 2 position lid vent. Perfect for speeding up the cooling process.

Swing View Equipped

The HF 1818 temperature controls are fitted to our Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.
The swing view is a pivoting, swing-up enclosure that allows you to rotate the control to a comfortable viewing and programming angle. Once you're done, lay it back down to see it from across your studio. It's that simple.
The swing view pairs well with touchscreen controls like the TAP I and Icon+ as viewing angle can be perfectly aligned. You'll love it.

3" Firebrick with No Loss of Chamber Volume

Historically kiln designs were based on 2-1/2" firebrick. As 3" firebrick began to show favor in high temperature designs many kiln manufacturers simply reduced the firing chamber size to accommodate the thicker firebrick while leaving the outside dimensions the same.

At Evenheat we took a different direction. Instead of making the chamber smaller we kept it the same while increasing the outside dimensions. In this way there is no loss in chamber volume and common, standard kiln furniture would continue to fit. Nice.

Swing-Away Peephole Covers

Our kiln designs feature swing-away peephole covers as opposed to plugs.
Plugs get lost and they get broken. Our attached peephole covers remain on the kiln and simply swing open and closed. You won't lose them and they certainly won't break.

Lid Prop

The HF 1818 is provided with a lid prop bar that positively keeps the lid in the open position. Simple operation is made even easier with our well designed lid handle.

Relay Access Port

The HF 1818  incorporates our Relay Access Port for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.

Simply remove the access plate to gain access to the mechanical relays. There's no need to remove the control panel and dig into the internal wiring. It's absolutely simple and effective and all it takes is a screwdriver!

It's a given that mechanical relays will fail at some point. This relay access port really comes in handy when they do.

Full Stainless Steel Jackets

Multi-section, multi-jacketed kilns were conceived to lower production costs for the kiln manufacturer and to make life easier for the person installing the kiln. These are worthy goals but they come at the cost of kiln quality. It's a trade off we're not willing to make.

We build our kilns with full stainless jackets from top to bottom. Full stainless jackets mean absolutely solid, life extending construction. There are no leaks, no shifting and no weakness. Insist on Full Stainless Jackets for true build quality.

Build Options

Multiple Control Options

The HF 1818 is available in a variety of Multi-Zone controls including the TAP I, Icon+ and Rampmaster II. Multi-Zone controls use multiple thermocouples (temperature sensors) to provide excellent temperature distribution throughout the firing chamber.

At Evenheat we take the best control platforms on the market and make them even better by adding Special Limits thermocouples for precise temperature sensing and non-metallic faceplates for stellar Wi-Fi reception for on-line Apps. Visit our Controls tab to learn more about our controls and why they represent the very best that you can get.

Quiet Drive Solid State Relay Option

The HF 1818 is available with our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay option.

Our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System offers tight temperature control, high reliability and increased heating element life. We fully expect our solid state relay to last the life of the unit. You want this!

Voltage Options

Production for the HF 1818 is 240V.


All controls available on the HF 1818 will operate properly on both 50Hz and 60Hz line frequencies. To say it another way, line frequency has no effect. It doesn't matter.

Evenheat recommends that you check your operating voltage before ordering or placing the kiln in service.

Haik Brushes

Our Brushes are a wide and very soft brush used to apply shelf primer.

Kiln Wash - 1lb (Dry)

Kiln wash creates a layer of protection between the kiln shelves and your ceramic ware as it prevents your ware from sticking to the shelf. It is generally applied using a soft brush like our Haik brush. It can also be airbrushed on with the proper equipment.


Our kiln wash is made in-house. We've been told it's some of the best there is. It's supplied in dry form and is mixed with water for application onto the kiln shelves.
