cleaning pots - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • cleaning pots

    Was cleaning the inside oven and was looking for tips on cleaning the racks.

    Turns out ammonia on a cloth, throw it and the racks in a garbage bag and let them sit over night. The next day the stuff on the rack wipes right off!

    So.... I have some terracota and some abused corningware that are badly soiled. I threw them in a bag with the ammonia - left them for a little more than overnight. It worked like a champ!!! All I had to do is wipe them off. The corningware looked like new and the terracotta kept it's nice used look (only without the big brown spots....)

    All the best!!

      Interesting....I use ammonia to clean the glass on the woodstove....works pretty well and that's a baked creosote, I think.

      We've found that the terracotta cleans up pretty well just by soaking it.

      As far as pizza stone..??..put it in a white hot pizza oven and I'll bet it will brighten up. Have you ever tried putting something like that in a self cleaning oven when cleaning? How hot do they get anyway...

      I don't do well with the dishes....I think this one was terraced cleaning))
