Evenheat 2020 Knife Oven Changes

"Hey - Where have all the Evenheat KF knife ovens gone?"

Don't worry! You can still find the same amazing quality heat treating ovens by Evenheat - read on to find out the details.

As of January 1st, 2020 Evenheat has made the decision to discontinue their KF Series of knife heat treating ovens to be replaced entirely with the LB series. The LB Series has now been around for about 1 year to date and at some point the two lines became redundant.

The KF and LB kilns share an almost identical design offering: The side opening door, the cool touch handles, door shield, 2200F maximum temperature, swing view controls on the Rampmaster and TAP Smart controls, and the handy tool rest on the side. The only difference between the models being the element placement - The LB series was designed for knife makers and has only side elements for the most even heat distribution.

The side element only design of the LB has proven itself in testing and the market - many reports from the field indicate the LB is superior to the KF - and that's saying something, as the KF series is remarkable and a market favorite! We're excited for these new changes!

For each previous KF model - there is a matching LB model that will fit your needs exquisitely:

While discontinuing the KF heat treating ovens, Evenheat has decided to begin offering the LB ovens with a base model of the Set-Pro controller and a mechanical relay. This allows for a more basic and economical model for those who are on a tighter budget, while still offering the Rampmaster controller, TAP Smart controller, and Quiet Drive Solid State relays as upgradeable add-ons for those who really want the best product possible.

Further information on the controllers and relays can be found on all product pages, or check-out our Kiln Controller Types article in the Knowledge Center!

And of course, we'll still have those extra nifty options available such as the loud alarm and the power interrupt switch for those looking for the additional functionality.

But what about the Evenheat KF 13.5, you ask? Over the years, Evenheat has noticed that the 13.5" depth models have had very minimal sales - most users reaching for the 18" depth at a minimum to have more options in their blade creations. For that reason, both the Evenheat KF 13.5 and the Evenheat KO 13.5 have been removed from the line.

Along with these changes - we also have an exciting addition to the KO Series - The Evenheat KO 27! This oven is long overdue as many users have been asking for a 27" model of the KO line - and finally, it has arrived!

That's it for the 2020 changes to Evenheat's knife ovens - We're confident you'll be extremely satisfied with the LB series as it's complete replacement.

As always, should you need any further assistance - please don't hesitate to reach out to us at any time. We're happy to help you along your journey!

Jen-Ken AF3C 11/9 Ceramic Kiln

Perfect, simple, professional

I LOVE my new kiln!! I am new to pottery and ceramics and this is my first kiln. Great price, great customer service, easy to order and exactly as described! perfect fit for my home as it is small and fits a standard home electrical outlet without having to make any electrical modifications. SO easy to use with easy-to-read manual— my very first projects fired perfectly and I have never fired a kiln in my life before now. Perfect 04-06 range bisque and glaze just as described, which is exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t be happier with or more proud to own this equipment and everything that came with. Zero issues whatsoever with ordering and delivery, and I really appreciate that it arrived a week early with frequent communication and updates from the time I ordered, to the time it arrived, and great follow-up even after a couple of weeks of use. I never had to contact Soul Ceramics once regarding my order because I was provided all the information and updates I needed and more as my order was being fulfilled… but I have no doubt that any concerns, issues or questions I might have had would have been addressed and resolved promptly and professionally. seriously impressive, and this is a dream come true for me as a maker. I really can’t say enough about how satisfied and excited I am with this company and equipment. Thank you so much for a wonderful product and outstanding customer service!

Just received the kiln, so I haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Took a about 15 wks for it to be built and shipped. But it was packaged very well from Evenheat. Make sure you have someone to help you move it into place, as the kiln is not light. The drop ship was from a tractor trailer, so make sure you have room for that size of delivery truck. May update once I get to use the kiln.

Great Kiln!!

Took a while to get here but it was worth the wait!
Works great and it’s really easy to use, since we got the ramp master control. Customer service was also very nice and kept us updated on info we asked for and needed! When we got our kiln we ended up putting a dolly under the stand so we can push it around and store it easily. So far this kiln is great, especially for our small business. 10/10 :)
