Hi sweetie, a kiln with firebrick is better. Fibreboard doesn't control the heat well enough for a phase one kiln. Essentially you want a kiln that doesn't cost a lot, runs on 240v and is big enough...

I knew this stuff was a good investment. Spare a thought to the Aussie who bought some of this and the regular Foster Fire and spent USD 90 bucks! (most of it was shipping) Best investment EVER!
