inside of door treatment? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • inside of door treatment?

    Door is now complete. Steps taken are shown in my album (link below if anyone interested). I have a question about the treatment I should use for the inside of oven door. It is steel and will rust over time. The outside of door is a high heat tremclad flat black but dont want this paint for the inside because of being close to food. Any ideas to stop rusting. Coat it with vegy oil or something? ....wayne

    Re: inside of door treatment?

    I wouldn't think the paint on the inside is a problem after the first firing.....I painted mine with heat proof paint and never thought about it!!

    But you could treat it like a cast iron fry pan. I just coat with oil and put in the oven to cure. It creates a rust free pan as long as you take care of it. And my paella pans are the same, cheap steel pan that is oiled between use to keep it from rusting.

    so, oil the back of the door, bake it and periodically oil again. That should work.

    Nice door!

          Regardless of the weight, I love the look! Careful going in and out of the oven with that 'dozer. Mine's chipping my bricks on the reveal.
          Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

              I'm almost afraid to say this....

              There are ceramic coatings for headers and exhaust maniflolds. One I have used is called jet-hot. I sent the exhaust manifold from my old car out there and it is now shiny and chrome like after 18 mos of heat cycles similar to the pizza oven. They also have other coating colors as well. I was making drawings for expanded metal and handles with a center core of isoboard. My plan was to send the metal to a Jet hot faciltiy and get it ceramic coated...

              My wife thinks I'm going overboard......
