  • oven shape


    I was wondering if there is a big difference between round ovens and rectangular ovens??

    I want to make a commercial masonary oven but i want to make it rectangular rather than round/domed shaped.

    Would it make a huge difference?

    What will you use it for?

      I plan to use it to bake bread mostly.

      I am opening a cafe and one of my maid product will be sandwiches and I would love to make bread from a brick oven.

      To give you an idea of the amount I hope to make approx 200 bread that will be approx 6 inches each in length and 3 inches in width.

        A barrel vault is easier and faster to build. As far as performance, you can get the same results from either shape.
