We've been using the advancers for about 6 months. We're quite happy with
About the danger of explosions:
Several Clayart posts deal with disasters from them exploding because of
moisture, but it looks to me like they are all from potters who stored them
beside their outdoor kilns, perhaps under a type of shelter, but not inside
a building. The danger of moisture shouldn't be taken lightly, but unless
you expose them to water, (not just a little humidity or an accidental small
splash liquid) there should be no problem.
What we like is:
Very light - we bought 3 full shelves for our 10 cu ft kiln (12 sided) and
no problem handling the full shelf. This is key to us when firing things
that would have overlapped the two half shelves we used in the past.
We put kiln wash on them but a lot of folks say it isn't necessary.
They certainly were expensive - about $250 each from Smith Sharpe in
Minneapolis, but worth it in the long run.

Subject: Advancer shelves for electric kilns
I have seen ads over the last year for the thin light Advancer kiln shelves
for use in electric kilns. Has anyone had any experience with these?
