Pre-Firing Your New Kiln

Here is a recent article about how to prefire your new kiln. We also have a video, but this is easier to print and take to your studio:

Before using a new kiln for glass projects, you'll need to pre-fire it. This burns out binders, moisture, and other residue left over from the manufacturing process. New shelves can be slow to take on primer so we recommend pre-firing them, too...

It's not very long, but I linked it instead of copying it so that if it is ever updated, Forum readers will always access the latest version.
