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!

  • Secret to setting Toscana oven

    Recently I received a Toscana 90 on a pallet. I inquired as to how to set on the stand and did not receive much information.

    Well the oven arrived and after some thought I used a fork lift, removed the wooden runners on the bottom and tried to figure out how to get the forks out so the oven set flat.

    I bought four bags of crushed ice and placed two bags of ice along each fork on the stand. I lowered the oven on the ice bags and removed the forks. zIt was easy to adjust the location of the oven on the stand and when the ice melted the oven was flat on the stand, right where I wanted it.

      Brilliant!! For some of us though, the way the weather has been, the ice would not melt until August.

        Great idea! I've heard of guys aligning large outdoor kitchen granite countertops on ice cubes and once the ice melts you're good to go. If I ever have to replace the soapstone slabs in my oven I'm gonna have to slide them out on a cookie-sheet slab of ice or else leave them in there.
