MAXI / MAXIne Features

  • Available in multiple colours.

  • Superb Efficiency.

  • Unique Lowered Floor.

  • Designed to service many areas of bead making.

  • Removable racks.

  • Detachable stabilisers

The MAXI has been designed for the serious beader or class application.
Major British beaders and flame workers have been involved in its development to ensure that nothing was over looked.


Unique Lowered floor

The kiln has a unique lower floor that enables the lower row of beads to be inserted at a slight down facing angle. This allows the kiln to house three rows of beads at differing heights on its unique real wall rack. The result is a possible 90 or more beads (size depending) to be annealed without touching each other or having to be moved. Many more if the racks are removed.

The kiln has to service many areas of bead  making and so it is designed to mix and match.
The perforated rear wall rack is in 3 pieces and any one can be removed and a lower rack inserted for larger flame work.

  • Stainless Steel doors.

  • Thumb throw door catch.

  • Unique COOL door handle shething

  • Three years guarantee on ALL parts
    including the elements.

  • Designed and built by Kilncare in the United Kingdom.

Rod Stabilisers

The rod stabiliser on the front can be clipped off in either 1/3 or 2/3 sections. depending on rod size and length.



The internal rear rod racks are also in 1.3

sections with a spare, 1/2 height section

supplied for those much thicker rods

Mineral Insulated Element

In Kilncare tradition, the kiln is ultra-safe. The element is protected by a steel sheath making it impossible for the element to be accidentally touched. This also ensures that the kiln elements can be safely left running whilst the mandrel is placed


The real benefit of the design of this kiln though is its superb efficiency. Tests with its main competitor show that the MAXI uses between 35% and 40% less electricity over the same 8 hour garaging period and 5 hour annealing cycle.  

Addition Boards

2 additional half Boards are supplied that bring the lower floor level with the front edge so making for a flat floor which may be preferable for off mandrel applications. 



Stainless steel doors with thumb flick catch

The stainless steel doors cements the MAXIs position as the finest of ALL Bead Annealing Kilns.
The doors have a thumb throw door catch that automatically keeps the door in the closed position but opening of the door is still a single handed “flick” operation.
The handles are covered with our unique COOL handles heat resistant sheathing.



Pick your colour from the company that bought you the original PINK mainstream kiln, the MAXIne.

In standard form the MAXI is Kilncare Ultramarine Blue and the MAXIne is pink (this kiln set a trend across the world).

However, you can choose your prefered colour for a small colour change fee.

Simply get in touch with us with your colour requirement and if we have it in our swatch then we can do your kiln in it..

The KCR32C has functions that far out weigh the requirements of the MAXI but it is our default controller for all glass kilns and although full of features, it is also extremely easy to use.


It is a multi-program controller designed for glass.

The slow rate capability of the KCR32C, down to 1c per hour, makes it the perfect controller for complicated glass cycles.
