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 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:
