Christmas wish list ideas? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Christmas wish list ideas?

    My oven's not finished, but when it is...what should I ask for for Christmas? My list so far is: pizza paddle and a cast iron Dutch oven. Any ideas? What do you find to be your favorite oven accessories? Thanks!

    Aluminum proofing pans. They really work great.

      Dear Poetry Art
      Big Heavy base roasting pan with a rack to keep the roast of the base and allow you to have a little water in the bottom...
      Remember your door size on your wish list.... it needs to fit and you may as well get the biggest that can fit!

        Re: Christmas wish list ideas?

        Below are WFO items I either have and appreciate most, or am asking Santa for this year:

        Have to have's
        -A good wire bristled brush / broom
        -Fire poker
        -Long oven mitts
        -Pizza peels... the more the better!

        Nice to have's
        -Infrared thermometer (this is probably a have-to-have for the first couple months, but I use it less and less now that I know my oven).
        -Terracotta bakeware
        -Dough proofing pans
        -Some kind of long tool with a hook to pull hot pans from the oven
        -Caputo 00 flour

        I have a dutch oven that I've used in the WFO, but I'd go for terracotta before iron...IMO.

            I would also throw in a good pizza cutter if you are planning on lots o parties. Worth every cent!

            As for gloves, I use aluminized gloves - expensive but gives me extra time.

            Pizza peel - i am envying the one with lots o little holes in it to get rid of excess flour to avoid the mistakes by the party noobs (or wife not payin attention!)

              Excellent things for my wish list! Thanks! Can't wait to use them! A friend gave me a cookbook today -1 dough, 100 pizzas.... Am drooling over the s'mores pizza! Lol . Bought a few bottles of truffle oil recently, tried it on regular oven pizza, amazing flavor!
