Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Oven door is gone!

    I stack bricks in the oven opening and then I place a three plywood thick door over the opening. It has worked very for well except this morning, all that is left is ashes and the bricks. Any thoughts on a insulating door design.

    R.I.P. Doc Opa's oven door...

    I built an aluminum box with 2" of insulating blanket in it and a long stem thermometer stuck through it. Simple, light, and insulates well.

        Yep. Been there, done that!

        I got up the next morning and looked out and noticed the door missing. I was thinking "I'm sure that I put that door on last night" It wasn't until I noticed the pile of ashes that I figured out what had happened.

        I'm still on my 2nd temporary door which is just a bit of 12mm plywood fixed onto an aerated concrete block. One day I'll get around to making a permanent door.

          I caught mine just in time - was about to load the oven up with bread when I saw smoke pouring off the door. It's a little charred but still quite solid.

            I thought man, that smells like burning cedar...and yep, it was my door!

            Only charred the inside, but would have lost it completely if I was away a few more minutes. Working on a permanent insulated door soon...if I ever get to it...

              fxpose - what thickness Alu that is? Did you notice any heat damage on it?

                No heat damage yet, but I expect it to eventually crack or tear. If it does, I can easily replace the inner alu face with 22 ga sheet metal.
                The sheet aluminum came from a couple of large alu food serving trays which I had laying around. The alu was soft and pliable so it was very easy to cut and bend to shape.

                  Re: Oven door is gone!

                  so looks like you think 22 ga metal may work better? Did you put any frame inside that box? I need to make door this weekend, I really like your concept!

                    No, absolutely no framing. I originally thought about framing because the alu felt so flimsy but after I started bending and riveting the sections together it became very rigid.
