I am still trying to evaluate kiln possibilities. It seems that will
gas/propane kilns there is the advantage of reduction firing. What are
the disadvantages of gas/propane kilns? It seems that when I look
through Ceramics Monthly everyone is selling electric kilns which from
what I understand don't offer the possibility of reduction firing. What
are the advantages of an electric kiln that you don't get with a
gas/propane kiln?

Still trying to understand!
