Are they using an electronic melting pot?

A friend of mine had an electronic one.
It wasn't very large but it was expensive.
It had an electronic heat control and a carbon fiber type crucible.
All electric I think, possibly intended for medical casting.
He said that using it could control the melting temperature to nearly an exact degree, but it just couldn't hold a whole lot of metal.
Maybe about a quart more or less.
He said that his melting pot could get hot enough to at least melt bronze but I don't know if he ever did.
