The high temperature ceramic material assures the inside of the kiln stays clean while allowing plenty of air circulation for reliable firings.
The ceramic vessel offers mess-free carbon firing. The long-lasting, high temperature ceramic material is hotter inside than metal containers because the ceramic is porous. More oxygen gets in a ceramic container allowing for a lower firing temperature.
