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.

  • which vermiculite to use

    The only vermiculite I have found in my area is a fine sand like prouduct used to insulate concrete block. Is this ok to use for the insulating pad and cap.
    Thanks Larry

    (M) If you have found a Vermiculite that has been coated for easy pouring into the cores of your cement block, that is not what is recommended for insulation. Coated Vermiculite, or Perlite will not readily absorb the water necessary for proper hydration of your "Perlcrete". If you're mixing an insulating "concrete" get the uncoated common garden - horticultural variety.
