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.

  • Oven Stone

    I'm looking to purchase a stone that pretty much will cover one rack on my kitchen oven. Looking for comments on what type of stone will work, granite, marble, etc AND recommendations on a good thickness.

    Anyone else do this?

    Thanks - Chuck

    Re: Oven Stone

    I've used unglazed quarry tiles cut to fit my oven rack. They work fine. What works better is to have two oven racks fitted out that way- that way you get the heat on top too. I like the tiles better than the stone because I can cover more area with them for less money.

    This is acceptable indoors, but the wfo does work better for pizza and bread. Not to mention it takes nearly as long to properly heat up my oven with the stones in it as it does to heat up the wfo. Admittedly I have a VERY slow oven. That's actually why I built the wfo. Well, that and the fact that the wfo is very cool.

      Where did you get the "unglazed quarry tiles"?

      Are they stone or clay? How thick?

      Thanks - Chuck

        I got them at the local builders mart- you can check at tile stores too. I think I saw them at Tractor Supply a couple of weeks ago as well. They're clay floor tiles, really. No glaze on them, and they're about 1/2 inch thick. Some are 6 x 6, and some are 8 x 8, I think. They're red, or at least mine are.
