I spent months researching kilns and it came down to the Kingpin 88 and the Paragon SC-3. Both are top-notch but I chose the Kingpin because of Evenheat's great customer service, the kiln's design, and other jewelry artists' glowing reviews. This kiln is reliable, well-built, and I absolutely love the powder coat finish (mine is antique gold, aka Gold Rush). It has a lower initial cost than the SC-3 and is also cheaper to operate. It arrived with a kiln shelf and posts. An added bonus is Evenheat's 2-year warranty. Very happy with my purchase!

More efficient and costs less!
June 12, 2012
from Choctaw, OK United States
I tried to read every review I could between the Paragon SC series and the Even-Heat Kingpin 88. Wasn't much out there, but I eventually found that the Kingpin costs less (from here) with a window door plus it was about $0.05 a kilowatt hour cheaper to operate due to it's more efficient design and materials. The Set-Pro digital panel couldn't be any easier to use. Very happy customer!
