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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


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.


If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

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

  • Door with a View redux

    After nearly four years in service and 3 Wisconsin winters, this door remains my favorite project and tool for the oven. Among its many uses it stands as a “storm door” to my Oak Insulated door, having been in place facing the elements since the day of its creation.

    One of the mistakes I had made in its original creation is that when I was told by the friendly gentleman at Home Depot that the high heat spray paint did not need a primer, I believed. With a visit home this weekend, I finally decided to sand blast off the rust (primarily on the outward facing side) and old paint and do it right; with a couple coats of high heat primer followed by a couple more of finish coat.

    The door serves as a wonderful draft door, assisting with the oven start up, while allowing you to witness the show within. When cooking, using the slides, you can precisely control the amount of airflow and therefore the fire and it allows you to monitor the items in the oven while baking, eliminating the need for dropping the temperature each time you remove the door for a look.

    The glass is amazingly resilient (and well worth the high initial price). In cases where soot has obstructed the view, I have taken to simply wiping it down with a wet rag while in service on a 900 degree oven (beware the steam) which beats my old approach of a dry cloth. The glass can withstand temps 1400+ and wide swings in temps (like a 65 degree wet rag on a 900 degree window).

    Here is the original post for those who may want to take this on.

      Jim, I can't tell you how many times I've wanted that door!! Someday I'll get up the nerve (and hopefully skills) to try to make one myself. Glad to see she's still performing for you.
