A Mini Electric Pottery Wheel – 5 Reviews

In 2 previous blog posts, I wrote about (miniature) pottery and the artists that make them on Etsy. Today I am going to give you 5 reviews on a mini electric pottery wheel, this time mostly from Ali-Express. Because frankly, I found them cheaper there than on Etsy or Amazon.

Let’s dive right into things, starting with number 1.

 

Pottery wheel number 1.

 

Product NameElectric Pottery Wheel DIY 

Place(s) To Buy: AliExpress (yes, they have it on Amazon as well, but the price is 3 times higher!)

Product Overview

The Good And The Bad :

The good

  • cheap to start out with if you want to try out pottery making
  • wireless and rechargeable
  • doesn’t rust

The bad

  • it can take a long time to arrive as it ships from China
  • the pottery wheel seems very weak
  • stops spinning with just light pressure

Support :

Contact the seller for support, if no reaction, contact Ali-Express.

My Final Opinion :

This could be a nice device to try out small pottery baking and see if you like it, but if you want to continue the art, I would buy something with more quality.

 

Pottery wheel number 2.

  • because of this last one, I am only giving it 3 and a half starts until people have reviewed it some more 

Support :

Contact the seller

My Final Opinion :

Frankly, I have no clue if this pottery wheel is quality or not, as I can not find any reviews or even a similar wheel anywhere else, like on Amazon or so. This is the reason for the 3 and a half stars.

Something extra: make your own electric pottery wheel!build your own pottery wheel

 

I wanted to add something extra when making this blog post and that is this Etsy link.

It shows how to make a pottery wheel DIY style yourself!

YES, you can! 

It is a digital downloadable PDF- file that describes how to step by step, how to build your own pottery wheel. It is full of instructions, diagrams, photographs, and tips. Like, what parts to order and how to assemble them using only household tools.


 

Final Conclusion

I hope that you have found the right electric pottery wheel that you are looking for and I would love to see the result(s) on my Facebook group about miniatures.

Do you have any questions or do you have a suggestion on an article for me to write about? Then please leave a comment in the comment section below.

Happy crafting and Merry Christmas!

Best regards,

Lizzy

  1. Hello; thanks for these five reviews on Mini Electric Pottery Wheel. It is understandable about the strength and durability of the first three pottery wheels, especially the first one taking into account that they are made for children to toy with.

     If I were to buy one of these for a kid knowing how they are experimental I would no doubt buy number four. Otherwise, number five is the ideal buy for me.

  2. Thank you for this very insightful information. My wife and kids love to do all kinds of crafting together. And this looks like a great place to find things I can buy for them to do together. What are some of the best things they offer in your opinion? What do you recommend for a family project?

    • Hi Johnny

      If you are looking for a miniature pottery wheel like this blog post is telling you about, and you would like to include your kids in the crafting pottery craft, then I would for example advise number 3 to start out with. If your family likes it, then you could eventually buy a more expensive one, or make one yourself as in the Ebook from Etsy that I mentioned!

      happy crafting

      Best regards,

      Lizzy
