Caution: This may make your head explode - 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!

    Since the link doesn't work, I delved into the annoying and glitchy gizmodo site to bring back this image:

      It's cute, but there isn't nearly enough wood storage area.

        Sorry about the broken link. The headline reads, "Bake A Delicious, Healthy Pizza On Your Way To Work"

        Text: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and how many of you drive to work each morning without any pizza in your stomach? This travesty shall be amended!

        The $36 Porta-Pizza Oven is a toaster oven/pizza cooker that plugs into your car's 12V cigarette lighter. Despite top and bottom cooking elements providing high and low heat settings, we can't help but maintain a little skepticism. Even in their promo shot, the pizza is spilling out of the oven (presumably onto your car's leather seats...oh...you didn't get the upgrade? That's OK, we're sure your car is very nice. No really, we all know those luxury packages are a rip. And there's a recession on. Right, you're right—tell the valet that when he snickers at your interior. But if it makes you feel any better, he's probably laughing at the fact that you just downed a large Tombstone that you cooked on the way to the restaurant. Yeah, most people consider that a weird habit.).

          Unreal. I knew these items were coming, just sooner than I thought.
          Just a couple of years ago a co-worker and myself would joke around around with a friend who is a rep for one of the proprietary tool brands at your local big box DIY. They were (and still are) coming out with more cordless (and at that time several cigarette lighter) powered tools, gadgets and accessories. We kept telling him we would not be impressed until they came out with a toaster oven, crock pot, and deep fryer that we could plug into our cigarette lighter, joking that those of us who spend a lot of time behind the wheel deserve a good, "homecooked" meal while on the road away from home.

          I'm holding out until the crock pot and deep fryer are available......I want a whole appliance set.....maybe and espresso machine too.

              It looks underinsulated to me. At 800 oF I can see it melting into a puddle of molten plastic and burning through the seat and floor of the car.

              I can also imagine it melting the electrical system in the car and the battery as it drains power!

              I like the oven on a trailer idea better!
