Rohde Ecotop 43 litre, 13amp kiln.

Fire to STONEWARE temperatures in a 43 litre, home use, 13amp kiln  !


The Rohde Ecotop 43 litre kiln is an energy-efficient, 13amp ceramic kiln ideal for potters and ceramists looking for an efficient small kiln, happy to fire to high temperatures.  Capable of reaching stoneware temperatures with ease, this top-loading kiln combines advanced technology with user-friendly features, making it perfect for both beginners and experienced potters.

Get this kiln to run a new hobby at home, or use in a busy Ceramic Studio as a 'test-kiln' to quickly fire emergency items.


VERY High thermal energy efficiency

35mm microporous insulating board with special silica and infrared opacifiers are able to hold in MUCH more generated heat.

A lower thermal conductivity by a factor of 10 when compared with the conductivity of chamber bricks.



At least 30% MORE EFFICIENT..!


A reduction of heat loss of equivalent (already very efficient Ecotop43) kiln model by at least 30 percent!!!

Significantly lower energy consumption due to new thermal insulation properties.



Monitor firings remotely - LIVE

Check the status of your firing from anywhere in the world using the Rohde app.  Did you actually start the firing? No need to travel back to the studio... Is the kiln cool enough to unload?.. just get out your phone and take a look.  Log previous firings as well to assess element efficiency as the kiln ages.




Long Term application Temperature 1260C

Maximum achievable temperature 1300C, however it is designed for long term and continuous use at temperatures up to 1260C, making it suitable for firing bisque, earthenware, porcelain and even high temperature Stoneware up to Orton cone 7.



Gas Pressure Spring-Supported Lid hinge

A Sturdy Lid construction is supported by gas pressure springs which allow easy, effortless and safe opening and closing of the kiln lid.



Computer Controlled

Advanced, easy to operate computer controls every stage of the firing.  Top spec. Stafford 411 controller.  Watch your kiln fire from your smartphone with the Wifi enabled computer and Rohde app.  Controller includes an over-temperature cutout, stopping the firing if it gets to hot.



Reversible Kiln Stand

The strong metal stand can be turned upside down allowing for two different kiln heights.



Integrated Safety cut-out switch

A door contact switch automatically isolates the heating elements inside the chamber from the power supply when the kiln lid is opened.



High Quality Heating Elements

All heating elements made from 'Kathal A1' metal, ensuring the best possible durability and reliability with a reserve capacity calculated into the element to limit any stress.



S Type Thermocouple

s type thermocouple

Hard wearing, high temperature, long lasting 'S' type thermocouple fitted as standard.



3 Year Warranty

Each Rohde kiln is made by hand and kept to strict quality guidelines, therefore each is sold with a reassuring 36 month warranty.



13amp UK plug

Supplied with a standard UK 13amp plug.





This is the most energy efficient hobby kilns we have ever sold, at least 30% more efficient than it's respectfully efficient counterpart.

Using a microporous insulation material outside the kiln chamber we are able to contain much more of the heat generated.  This will mean significantly lower energy consumption on each firing when compared with previous models.

Ecotop 43 Toploader has a volume of 43 litres and is a kiln manufactured by German kiln maker 'Rohde' and comes with a 3 year warranty.

The Ecotop series kilns are able to fire as hot as 1300°C, however for long term use on this amperage supply it is suggested to limit long term high temperature firings to around 1260C, which is more than enough for stoneware and porcelain firings.  With the special thermal insulation in used in this kiln, high temperature firings will have less impact on the kiln, allowing it to get to those higher temperatures with ease.

This kiln has an exterior measurement for the chamber of 50cm tall by 63cm wide, however including the metal control box the width is 77cm.  The height of the kiln is 82cm when on the tall side of the stand and when flipped over to the short side of the stand the height will be 67cm tall.

The stand has 2 wheels on the rear which you cannot see in the photos, allowing you to easily move around your studio.
