What are observation holes ?

Peep holes: uses

Peep holes in your kiln are used for observing the firing process so that you can see when the cone bends and when it is time to turn the kiln off if you do not have an automatic shut off.
Peep holes have a secondary function in that they draw oxygen into the kiln, preventing reduction, and carry off smoke and water vapour.
