Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

  • Door opening size

    Here are dome shape and opening size calculations I have made that might be helpful. I don't think it rocket science other than not making your opening so small you cannot get your favorite peel or pan into it (which I did on my first oven because I was trying to optimize it for bread), and so large that you loose heat too fast. If you stay roughly within these guidelines you should be safe:

    Oven Sizes

    To get an idea of curve difference, you could look at the prefab data sheets on our site. There are graphics that show the curvature difference between the two style. In fact, our producer calls their low style (our Casa) "Volta Bassa" or low vault.
