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.

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.

  • Ideal hearth height?

    Hi, my breadbuilders book recommends just below elbow height for the hearth. Having never used a pizza oven I'm not sure? What do you guys recommend as a comfortable working height?

    Thanks

        I built mine at elbow height, but I have worked others that were higher and they were easier to work. I have to bend or back up to see into mine, it is good to be able to observe without much bending.

          Richard, mine is 2 inches above my elbow, I like the height. Also consider who else might be cooking in the oven; like your social director.
