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!

    Re: Primevara 60

    Hi,
    The Primavera 60 oven is one of our bestselling ovens with [many] hundreds having been sold all across the US and overseas. This oven comes finished and with a small amount of assemble for the stand you would be up and firing in no time. One thing to consider is with a 24" cooking floor the Primavera 60 model is our smallest oven so you would want to consider the volume of cooking you would plan on doing in the oven. The Primavera 60 oven does have a very fast heat up time at only 20 minutes which makes it possible for even a busy consumer to cook home fresh pizza on a week night! To discuss all of our oven model option or for more information on the Primavera 60 please feel free to call us and speak with one of our knowledgeable sales staff or you can read more about the Primavera 60 at these links...

      Is there any difference between the primavera60 and 70 besides the cooking floor diameter (24" vs. 28") and metal stand not included with the P70? One earlier post mentioned the P70 being "lower profile" (lower dome height?).

        Hi There

        Both Primavera 60 and Primavera 70 have a finished dome height of 26". As you stated the main differences are the cooking surface size and that the Primavera 60 comes with a stand although you can purchase it without the stand as well. Below are some links you can use to compare the two including dimensions...

                  What I mainly dislike is that it's 24 inches. After you get a feel for it, you'll likely want something larger.

                  However, the size really does have some definite advantages. I can go from ambiant temp to cooking temperatures in around 30 minutes. That means it gets used a LOT more than a larger oven might. It's really no big deal to fire it on a weeknight.

                  It's absolutely worth the money, IF you either don't want to build your own or you think you're going to move. If you move, you can take the P60 with you. However, you can build one of Forno Bravo's prefab kits or buy one of their Pompeii kits for significantly less money, and get a bigger oven. Knowing what I know now, that's probably what I should have done.

                  Either way, a WFO is a fantastic investment. It will repay you in multiple ways. We just did our second Thanksgiving turkey in the P60, and it was wonderful.

                    Does FB allow a third party shipper which charges quite a bit lower? The shipping represents close to 30% of the total cost.

                      i have the 70 and it is an amazing oven!! it is perfect for small amounts of pizza such as 5 or 6 . it uses minimal wood and heats fast. not that you can not cook lots of pies in it. no other company has anything close in price or quality.
