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!

  • Question on Pizza Oven Found in Warehouse

    I found an unused Italian pizza oven in a warehouse that appears to be a wood fired pizza oven from Italy. It has the name Laria S.p.A. Klinker on the invoice. It's about the size of a Casa 90. It's made of a refractory concrete material with some aggregate mixed in. It has a pinkish looking paint on the exterior and the interior of the dome (cooking area) is unfinished.

    Question 1: Anyone heard of ovens from the Laria company?

    Question 2: The floor (like the Casa 90) comes in four pieces. Two of these pieces have clean cracks. Can I simply patch with refactory concrete when I'm installing or is this a serious issue?

    Question 3: Instead of four (4) pieces (like the Casa 90) this oven dome comes in two (2) pieces. Any comments on the relative merit of one design approach over the other?

    Looks like their bread and buttter is tile for flat tile. Take a look at their PDfs - they have a body of some Italaina vehicle on a production lin on one of them.

        Hi Fred,

        I always used to joke that if you took a drive in Tuscany on a Sunday it was easier to find a wood oven producer than an open supermarket. There are a lot of small companies that make ovens.

        If you can just pick it up locally, I'm sure it will be fine. I installed and used ovens from different producers before we started FB -- and of course I like the Casa! There are differences. Still, if you can get a good price and drive it home that would be good.

            I moved here in March and had to sign a 1 year lease on the house I am renting so it will be this spring before I can buy a house. I thought about building the oven and floor only and setting it on a portable stand that I could move when I buy a house. I have since read some posts on the site that indcate moving a brick oven is not a good idea. So I will have to wait till I get my own home again.
