Note: Martin called about firebrick slabs. He is building an oven with them which he plans to heat with electric ceramic radiant burners so that he doesn't need a flue. He had be using his kitchen electric stove rigged so that he could open the door while the oven cleaner feature was on. He got it up to 1,000 degrees F although it kept shutting off when he kept the door open too long. - Jim

Hey I missed your call but got your message. Here is the link to Elstein - the ceramic burners guys.
I also attached a catalog that explains the physics and shows the products.
There are no prices.
The engineer suggested I use a panel type burner, the HTS model, -"HTS 1 /" at 600 watts to keep me under a 20 amp load on the outlet/circuit. He ball parked 90$ for three of them, just to give you an idea on cost.
This model requires a temp controller that runs 250$. I'm working around that as we speak.
I am working on the fire box and I'll let you know how they work as the work progresses.
Hope this helps Thanks martin
