New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Monster Viking Stand Mixer

    Peter, our dealer/installer here in Healdsburg, just bought the 7 qt/1000 watt Viking Stand Mixer in Black. It looks like Darth Vader, but works great. Wow. I got to play with it the other day, and it's big and strong. No problem whining when it worked with larger volumes of flour. Peter likes to really mix his dough fast at first, and the mixer just revved right up. This is the same guy who used to own The Village Bakery in Sonoma county a good microbakery, so I trust his judgement.

    If you are in the market for a new mixer, you might take a look.

    I would be interested in folks experience regards various types of mixers. Here in the UK most people use planetary type mixers from Kenwood chef to Hobart big. I nave used a couple of spiral mixers in the past along with a very old diving arm type one any comments / preferences

      Kenwood Major - my mom made me buy it after i fried her Kitchen Aid while in high school. The K-aid was a good beast before they started putting in wimpy motors. It would whip up double batches of cookies in a heart beat. It chocked though when it came to making double batches of bread dough. Who knew you had to make small batches? I thought that since the cookie dough could be filled to the top of the bowl so too could the dough.

      The Kenwood had one main feature over the K-Aid (at the time I was in the market for a mixer) - a thermal fuse to protect the motor. I have been beating my K-wood for the past 20 years. I still get the motor to fuse off but at least I haven't had to buy a new motor.
