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.

  • Tamping your vermiculite hearth

    You won't be needing your rolling pin anymore (Vera Pizza Napoletana lovers!) so I recommend using it to tamp down your vermiculite hearth - let the vermiculite cure for 24 - 48 hours and then roll it gently but firmly in one direction, repeating after at 90 degrees. You should find the vermiculite is now nice and smooth with a flatter surface without those annoying little crumbs!

    Save your rolling pin (apple pie! pita bread!) and use one of those empty bottles on the worksite!
