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!

  • Preassembled Oven

    We have just announced a line of fully preassembled ovens, and the first one has been built and installed. This is exciting. The oven looks really nice, and of course it takes all the hassle (fun?) out of doing the installation. You could think of it as the opposite end of the spectrum from the Pompeii oven. We decided to call it the Toscana oven.

    The Toscana ovens are based on our Casa line of precast ovens and are available in 35" (90cm) and 39" (100cm) sizes. They come on a metal stand, with detachable legs and are finished in a nice white stucco Igloo and brick arch. The first customer set his in place on a block stand using a warehouse lift (stacker). We set it on his trailer, and it was on the stand in Sacramento the next day, and ready for a daughter's birthday party.

    Different circumstances call for different types of ovens, and I think the Toscana meets a real need -- a great-looking oven that is easy to install and ready to cook. I have thought there was a need for this oven for a while, so it feels good to see it come to life.

    What is the cost? How about shipping to the east coast? Do I only have to build a base and fire it up? How does the oven perform compared to a well made Pompeii?

      Hi Ted,

      The easy part first. The precast ovens cook great. They are made from a modern composite material developed specifically for pizza ovens. They heat up fast and hold heat well, and are shaped perfectly. The 40-45 minute heat up is pretty remarkable.

      You can either set the oven on our metal stand, or on a block stand. The photo attached shows a customer built stand.

      The cost is $5,000, and shipping depending on distance, but it is around $500-$600.

      Send me an email (james@fornobravo.com) if I can answer any other questions.

        Re: Preassembled Oven

        James, after a couple of posts on portable ovens, I look at that picture on the trailer and wonder how this oven would hold up as a mobile oven. How many have been sold for that purpose?

        And what is the weight sitting on that pallet? That sure looks like an oven someone could take with them when they move~
