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!

  • Adjusting Bowl Clearance

    I have noticed that the wire whisker attachment for my Thunderbird 20 QT (similar to Hobart 20 QT) is making contact with the bowl when it spins around.

    How do I adjust the clearance between whisker and the bowl?

    TIA

    Anyone know the answer to this??

    Is it possible that the whisker IS designed to scrape the bowl directly? I wouldn't have thought so but I may be wrong ...

    TIA

      Rossco,
      the whisk along with the beater and the dough hook are not supposed to touch any part of the bowl at all! They should run close but not touch.
      I might suggest that the whisk is not the correct one for the machine.
      Some that I have seen have a large washer and screw directly below the shaft that connects via a bayonet fit to the drive shaft of the mixer where you can adjust the wire beaters of the whisk. You might like to check it out, maybe cut the top wires a little to allow 2mm clearaance between all wires and the bowl edge.

        Thanks for that Neill ...

        Actually I had been wondering about the size - particularly because the whisk that I was given with the mixer looks to be brand new!

        My guess is that they may have given me the one from their new 30 QT mixer. I may just sell that one off then if that is the case as it should have some value particularly as it would also fit the Hobart 30 QT model too which is quite common.

        It was probably a good move then to buy the complete set of original attachments, including the whisk for my T-Bird!

          Update here - yes, Neill you were correct. Since receiving the original TBird attachments I have compared the size of the one that I got with the machine with correct one and the one that came with the machine is quite a bit bigger. It seems to be unused and my guess is that it is for a 30 QT Hobart/TBird so I may sell it off as it isn't much use to me... I wonder what a 30 QT Hobart/TBird whisk is worth?
