Someone has patented the cast dome oven - 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!

      Re: Someone has patented the cast dome oven

      After reading the abstract and sections of the patent itself, I would amend the title of this thread to read; "Some has patented a type and method of creating a cast dome oven". Interesting find, sonomacast :-)

      In particular the author is patenting his attachment of the interior refractory to an outer shell thru the insulting layer using "pegs" welded to the steel shell passing thru the insulation and embedded in the refractory, creating what the author contends is a structurallly sound oven. Unless one is contemplating forming a business building WFOs using his method or idea, I think one has little to fear from litigation.

      And as for those who are wishing to build a one off for their own use even using his idea there is no fear for that is permitted with patents. Besides IMHO his idea has failings, the biggest being the steel supporting dome should be on the inside, not the outside.
