Tag man_made=kiln is used for mapping - a thermally insulated chamber in which temperature is controlled in order to change the state of the item placed inside, usually though the process of burning, baking, drying or smelting.
How To Map
Most of the time this feature will be marked as a node on a map indicating where the centre of the kiln is located. This may be within the building or man_made=works if it is located inside. If the kiln is especially large it may be accompanied with man_made=chimney tags. A user may wish to tag these separately or as nodes in a kiln area polygon.
Please note: This would usually only apply to huge kilns making up larger man_made=works inside an landuse=industrial area.
This is up to the implementation of each render but it is suggested as a black round drum with a flame in the centre of the drum. The svg below is offered to the public domain for free usage by any renderer:

The output or production purpose of the kiln.Proposed values:
This tag was chosen over the:
|capacity=*||number||Number of objects that can be placed into the kiln e.g. 10 pots|
|volume=*||number||The metric cubic volumetric capacity of the kiln in meters cubed. e.g 7. This tag may be more appropriate than capacity in cases where a large number of items are placed inside the kiln and it would be more useful to show the area the input occupies e.g. wood, or ore.|
|operator=*||*||The operator's name.|
|fuel=*||*||The fuel used to heat the kiln.|
