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.

  • Can i paint my dome oven???

    I own a wood fire restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. I took over 9 months ago and am loving using the wood fire oven. The oven has several cracks and chips which i repaired today. i was going to paint the oven dome with white acrylic paint, but after thinking about it i am worried about some issues. Can anyone advice me about if i can use acrylic paint or not, if not how can i coat/color the dome.

    I am worried the acrylic paint wont hold (should i paint the dome while hot or cold?), the paint will be toxic when the oven is hot giving of fumes, the paint will peel off,,,, i am confused and cant find any help in Melbourne. Any advice on technique or products will be greatly appreciated.

    Happy cooking

    Hi from Adelaide. I have painted my dome. In my experience it was not tricky at all. I bought good quality 'Solver' paint (Tuscan colour) and just applied two coats. I applied the paint direct to the final cement render coating. My dome is quite thick so heat has not been a problem with over 30 firings, in fact the exterior of the dome gets hotter on a 'hot day' than when the oven is fired. I can't recall if I used an acylic but I received very good advice from the paint experts at the retail outlet. You can see my completed oven in the "Completed Ovens" section.

      Talk to your paint store about acrylic stucco paint.

      This stuff is flexible, water resistant and comes in different colours.
