Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    I fond this copy of an old wood block printing in one of my archives.

    Awesome, it is the early version of "The Fire Within", the portable Forno Bravo ovens from Boulder...

      You think they'd be happier, given the wine and fresh bread!

        How happy would you be if you had to drag around an oven all day?

        Seriously, any idea when that print is dated to and/or its source? I am in a medieval re-enactment group which is why I'm so interested.

        Um, why doesn't the one in the woodcut (and a few others I found elsewhere on the site) show a chimney?

          I think that brick ovens, like a lot of things, took a big step backward in the middle ages. They seem to have fogotten the vent -- along with reading and writing! I'll bet the baker was constantly hot and smelling like smoke. I read an interesting article a while ago where an academic estimated that the "modern" world did not re-reach the standard of living of the Roman empire until the 1950's.
