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!

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

    Re: Can i paint my dome oven???

    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.
