UL Listing - 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!

  • UL Listing

    Pop the champagne. We've done it. The Modena W series, the Casa, Premio and Ristorante are officially UL Listed to UL737 and UL2162 (the newest, most stringent standard). You can see the listing here:

    http://etlwhidirectory.etlsemko.com/...OpenForm&Seq=1 then, type in Forno Bravo.

    I can't tell you how happy and excited I am. The listing is good for FB, it's good for our customers and it's good for the community -- this brings a new level of security to installing a wood-fired oven, particularly in terms of building and fire safety.

    There are only a tiny number of ovens that have passed UL2162, and even the few competitors who have passed UL in the past have not re-tested to the new standard. We're setting the new benchmark.

    There is a little more work to do on a couple of models. We are finalizing NSF (sanitation) for restaurant use on the Ristorante, and we are still working on the Modena G -- the gas burner portion. We will have those finalized shortly.

    Drink a toast for us (all of us) tonight!

    James - is the cert like in electronics where they have to do frequent audits on the manufacturer? And demand extortion money to do so.

      Exactly. Spot factory visits, tight specifications, huge costs, etc. The whole thing. :-)

        Its fascinating to see how fast Forno Bravo is growing, even just in the couple of months since I've joined... keep it up!
