I personally own and use a Jen-Ken Air Bath 21 in my shop. It heats up from room temperature to 1500F in 31 minutes. I highly recommend the Vertical Air Bath heat treating ovens.

12 Key Autofire
The AutoFire®4000 controller is a variable PID temperature controller for any electric kiln application, that includes many standard features, a user-friendly 12-key keypad and robust temperature control software. The controller allows the operator to create, program and save 9 separate firing schedules with 10 or more user defined heating and cooling rates, target temperatures and hold times. Many kiln operators prefer the AutoFire®3000 because of its versatility and proven reliability. Robust electronics and a four-layer circuit board design make the controller immune to electrical noise and able to perform in industrial environments.
TAP – Touch Screen Kiln ControlThe Temperature Automation by Proportional Integral-Derivative (TAP) controller is the first commercially available kiln controller that utilizes a Graphical User Interface (GUI). It has an intuitive touch screen that allows the user start to finish control of a firing process. It includes features such as diagnostics and Preventative Maintenance Alerts that keep the user informed about the status and remaining life expectancy of critical kiln components (relays, thermocouples, and heating elements).
