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!

    Can anyone tell me if they have a casa 80 or something similar and do you cure it the same way as the ovens you are all talking about? Our oven is just about installed but I think it is a pre fab compared to what you all are talking about! Do we need to fire it the same way as you say with 7 fires at different heat intervals? Crazy but there are no instructions on how to!!!

    Welcome aboard. We specialize in helping folks install any precast oven, regardless of who made it, and we get lots of nice emails from people we've been able to help. Just remember to tell your friends to buy a Forno Bravo oven next time.

    Take a look around the forum, and download the Casa installation guide for any help you need.

    Yes, I would recommend a seven day curing, even for a precast oven. You are going to a lot of work to install your oven, and curing it slowly will help it last longer, cook better, and reduce the risk of anything going wrong. I think it's worth the effort.

    Enjoy your oven -- and send photos when you are done.

      Thanks James,

      We are in the process of getting the oven installed by a professional mason/landscaper and what a beautiful job they are doing! I will post pictures when they are finished! It should be completed this weekend that is why I wondered how wego about using it! We are a little nervous! This is my husbands project as he also had them build in a gas grill and beer tap refridgerator with counter top....a guys dream kitchen I'm told! It was between this and a Harley.....I am personally glad he chose the oven!!
