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!

  • Primavera 70 questions

    I have 2 questions regarding the Primavera70.

    Is the shape of the oven round? In other words is I am building a stand would it be a similar shape as the stand that comes with the Primavera60? I want to have the stand built before the oven arrives and want to make it the right size and shape.

    The second question is what temperature does the bottom of the oven get to? Would I need something fire retardant underneath? I am a wood guy and am thinking of making a stand out of cedar to match my deck. I am not concerned with weight as I am confident that I can make it strong enough to support the weight.

    Help appreciated.

    Hey Tim,

    The Primavera60 and 70 are both round. The Primavera70 is assembled on a lightweight, reinforced concrete underfloor. It does not get very hot underneath the oven, but it is something to think about. It can get "warm", which won't make a wood stand floor happy. It a minimum it would really dry it out over time and perhaps change the shape.

      Thanks James.

      Would you hapen to know the diameter of the Primavera70?

      I am assuming since this is a hand made product there might be some variation but if I were to make the stand oversized by a 1/4" to 1/2" would that cover the variance?
