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!
How is your oven cooking? I hope it's been a lot of fun.
It doesn't happen often, but occasionally a floor will slowly wear down and get pitted. Keep an eye on it, and if it starts to get in the way of cooking, send me an email and we will send you a replacement piece. It isn't difficult to do the swap.
Our regards to the Godfather of the Forno Bravo. It is great to see that we may reap the rewards of such fascination. James, we should honor the trust he has with you and be glad you may share with us in the states.
An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!
On a different subject, as with any oven and cooking pizza's, my landing is starting to show the effects of a few dropped ingredients and outdoor weather. Is there a way to clean the landing safely without damaging it?
George.....I have two landings. The external one is made from granite and the more internal one is the one which comes with the oven I purchased from Forno Bravo (Casa 100). The one I was referrring to is the internal one. I was just hoping there was a way to clean it safely.
James, I would like to add some information which is mentioned in this thread. My oven is performing amazingly well. It is firing up nicely and it is amazing how it is retaining its heat. The only issue I see is the pitting of the floor as mentioned by "tommy5". Is this something that will have to be addressed one day, or is it more of a comestic issue.
It shouldn't get in the way of your cooking -- so I guess you could call it cosmetic. I've seen it before, and have basically not worried about it. If it becomes an issue, just give us a call. Otherwise, keep cooking.
I'm really pleased to hear that you are enjoying your oven. It's remarkable how well these guys heat up and cook.
