Steve Smyers used to charge charge batches like cad sels and would just shut the furnace off until it glazed over. I think with an electric it would lose a lot of ground doing that but I will throw it out there as an option.

What I notice with those glasses is that the real action doesn't start for about 1.5 hours. At that point it's really smoking. I always throw in all of the batch in one charge. I don't like multiple charges on Cad Sel stuff. I don't like being in the building much either.
