Unlike other pizza oven burner systems, which have a low flame and require fans or extra burner elements such as infrared panels under the cooking floor — which still do not adequately maintain proper temperature, the Forno Bravo burner delivers high, even cooking temperature; just like wood.
The Forno Bravo burner works in two modes: a low flame, which is used for maintaining the oven temperature; and a high flame used for quickly bringing the oven to cooking temperature, and for dealing with peak cooking periods. This dual-mode operation delivers economy of operation and minimum fuel consumption, combined with optimal performance and cooking. The Forno Bravo burner has a pilot-less ignition, further reducing fuel consumption.
The Forno Bravo Gas with Gas/Wood Combo ovens work on an atmospheric burner principle, where combustion takes place just as it does with wood. There is a natural draw of air through the oven opening, and the flame created by the burners is silent, widely diffused and very bright. This natural combustion delivers uniform cooking, high-performance "wood-like" flavors, and low maintenance costs compared with fan-assisted burners.
For restaurants looking for an oven that combines the authentic cooking environment of a wood-fired oven, with the convenience and consistency of a one-touch gas oven -- the Forno Bravo Professionale and Modena2G Gas with Gas/Wood Combo ovens make an excellent choice.
The Professionale and Modena2G ovens are ANSI-Z83a certified for use as commercial gas cooking appliances in the US.
