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 light

    I looked at several ideas when building the oven for a built in light, but in the end construction outran planning and it was built with no integral light.

    Here is what I devised, with the design criteria being:

    Not in the way.
    Easily moved or replaced in case of damage or lack of utility.

    I used my baby LED Mag light last weekend, but my jaw got tired quickly, so today I thinset a couple of strong magnets into the top of the outer arch. The batteries in the Mag light have enough iron for a good hold. Just turn it on, stick it, then twist it sideways to remove it.

      Re: Oven light

      Someone a few years ago was discussing this issue. At the time, I thought there was no need - but there is! You have a fix - but is it possible to find a light that would withstand the dome temp? Maybe devise a glass lens and do a Solotube concept? Next oven.

        The domestic downlights, either 12V or the ones available here 240V can withstand considerable heat, in fact they are responsible for many house fires. I integrated 2 of them in my chimney void aimed diagonally across the oven arched entrance and into the oven.
        They work great, see:
