Depends how important it all is.

You can certainly go with Michael's suggestion and get really high-end ones.

Or you could go the route I do and get the cheap ones from Newark/Element14
(https://www.newark.com/). Just type in the serial number for your relays.
Last time I bought them (probably 7 or 8 years ago!) they were 10-12 bucks
each (or less?). Much cheaper than the *exact same ones* provided by the
kiln companies at triple the price. Honestly, I've only had to
replace relays a few times, so it may be a problem with your kiln.

For me, if a relay goes out during a firing, it's no big deal. I'm not on a
schedule, and completely refiring the load doesn't make any difference if
it didn't reach temperature in the first place.
