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!

  • Considering a Primavera 60 - have some questions

    Hi. I am considering purchasing a Primavera 60, but have a few questions that have led to some reservations about it in general. My first concern is about weather. I live on Long Island in New York and we get a good amount of rain year round and snow in the winter. Will the climate here be too harsh on this oven? If not, will the vinyl cover provide adequate rain protection? Finally, does anyone use this oven at high temperatures successfully in the winter?

    Many thanks,

    Just thought I'd bump this as I have a few of the same questions...

      Ditto on the bump -- would love to hear feedback from current Primavera owners.

        Love my Primavera70...only cooked about a dozen pizzas and one chicken but I'm pretty happy.
        Live in Colorado...hot in summer cold in winter
        FB I reserve the right to be wrong, but...
        Cant imagine given the sheer amount of insulation that any outside temp will matter...I got the dome to 1150deg last night and the top was 92deg...If its 30 below zero I might not fire it up really fast, take it super slow, let it warm up a little with a small fire, The hearth is the weak spot were one end will be really cold and the other will warm up, but if you don't build a bonfire instantly I cant see why it would be a problem...
        It rained pretty hard last night and I did notice my hearth collected some water as the stone is fairly pourus, but I am gonna just fire it a couple times to dry it out...keep in mind these things sit out all over France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia etc. in the elements and it doesn't seem to bother anybody.
