Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    You did such a superb job on the arch, and a great compliment with the colored slate for the entry.
    An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!

      Beautiful work Wayne! Your efforts paid off well.
      Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

          Nice work. Once the rocks are in place, you'll have a showpiece that cooks. Not bad at all.

            Looks Super!

            How often will you need to seal the slate? Does it require any special ongoing maintenance?

              You probably only need to seal it once, but that depends on abrasion and the appearance you're after. If there's lots of abrasion, as on an oven landing, perhaps once every year or two. If you prefer a shiny finish, as opposed to matte, once a year.
