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!

  • Wich kit should I buy?

    I thought about it allot and I decided that I don't have enough time to build an oven. Unluckley, Forno Bravo does not have a dealer in my country, so I now have two options.
    The first and more expensive is to buy a Valoriani oven kit with The inner diameter of 40".
    My other option is to buy a Spanish brick oven kit from a company called HORNOSDELEÑA. They offer a 36" oven with thermometer and a still door on an axis for about 500$ less. An important point is that this oven is pretty high, about 28", and is not specially for cooking pizzas, witch is my main use for the oven.
    Should I save those 500$ (witch is a lot of money for me) and buy the spanish oven? I will be able to cook some good Neapolitan pizzas using him?

    Thanks to you all, Guy

    Thank you Mick, you helped me a lot!
    In the purpose of building the dome kind of scares me. so the kit seems perfect to me. It isn't cheap at all (2600$ for the expensive one), but I have decided that I just have to get one no matter what, although i'm only 17.5 years old and money is short.
    The low dome one seems so appealing!

      Hi Guyskr,
      I did a Google image search of: "Isreali wood fired oven", and came up with a few locations in Israel, that had dome ovens. You might try to get in touch, some of those might be from kits?

        A kit may be perfect for you but, don't let a DIY project intimidate you . With the information and the support from this forum, anyone can build a WFO .

          I wanted really bad to build my own oven. but I just don't have the time needed.
          A kit seems perfect for my needs; the fun of the building, a cheaper price and a not so hard work.

            An important point, I just found out that the expensive kit is not from Valoriani, but from forno de pizza.
            Any of you have ever heard of them?

              wood fired oven - Home This is something that I wouldn't pay $4,000 for.

                And what about the 2300-2600$ that I supposed to pay for the 40" tuscan?

                  Are you sure that these are the only ones available to you? When I did a Google Image search, I found a very nice one at Tishreen Restaurant in Nazareth. I don't know where you are, but I would do more research before buying one. The Tuscan is also a gas fired oven, something I would avoid.

                    Wow, I sorry for misinformed you guys, but I was wrong.
                    The oven that I can get is the valoriani frv100. What do you think about him?
                    Sorry for the confusion, but one thing was told to me and I understood a totally different thing.
