How many hours does an ^06 slow bisque and an ^6 slow glaze take on an electric kiln?

I tend to push it more than most on firing. I spend more time drying pots on the front end.
Cone 6 is just a temp I'm passing thru to cone 11 glaze so I have no thoughts on that.

The question is like "how long is a piece of string?"
How densely loaded, how old the elements, and how long between Low-Med-High on older (switched) kilns all contribute to the elapsed time.
That said, the other responses sound about right. My L&L 7 cu ft takes about 8 hours on fast fire to cone 1, with a full load (not glazed, tiles stacked) cone 6 takes another 2 or three hours.
