Looking for an easy-to-use wood oven? Check out the Forno Bravo Primavera. It's a true Italian-style oven that requires zero installation. Just set it, light the fire, and go.

But don't take our word for it. Here is what Peter Reinhart, our favorite Bread Baking guru, thinks:

"I'm in love with my Primavera oven. Why? Because it was easy to install (no frame building required—for me that was essential because I'm not good in that area), it's so easy to fire up, it heats quickly and holds the heat way longer than I thought it would (hours later it was still at 350 degrees), and —and this is more important than you might imagine)— it looks so cool! Not only do my friends experience immediate oven envy, but when they taste the food that comes out of it they jot down the website and start calculating where they plan to put theirs. The learning curve for cooking is very fast—I had my pizzas and focaccias figured out by the second pie and my oven roasted meats and vegetables were a quick study. The neighbors keep asking when we're firing up again, which makes us very popular in the neighborhood.
Peter Reinhart, Charlotte, NC"
