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!

  • Forno Aus

    Hi all
    First question has anyone dealt with forno Aus i have sent an email Friday morning and received no response,inquiring about an oven.

    is it safe to purchase from them i was looking at the casa2g series maybe the casa2g100 would be the right size for me it seems expensive.

    has anyone got one of these ovens or close to the size in aus and how are they for performance heat retention etc

    i would love a brick oven but i don't have the time to make one or want to wait 3 hours or more for to get it to temp.


    thanks

    Most wfos take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to heat up regardless of size it seems. The size of the oven will effect your wood use .Most home bread makers will make a batch of dough in 1 1/2 hrs .....perfect timing plenty time to watch the fire and have a yarn and a beer.
    Measure twice
    Cut once
    Fit in position with largest hammer

      HAhaha sure is dave thanx for the reply

      I finally got in touch with the guys from Aus yesterday seems if i send an email to them info@fornobravo.com.au it goes to the states first ??

      If anyone else is emailing them use the contact info emails not the forno site email

      would Be nice to hear from some Casa owners
      I have priced making my own casting etc,not to sure i can go down that road.
      time Plus materials probably works out cheaper to buy a DIY kit.


      Any Advice/warnings on the ovens is appreciated

          thanks johnny
          i spoke with them they were very helpful as were refractory and ceramic they are in Mulgrave <bit closer>

          they all sell only the components to make my own from brick,
          brick will now not be acceptable due to weight i have had some comps done on where the oven will be used as it will be mobile as well the weight will be a lilttle too high so ill be trying to keep that under control with maybe a hebel base and steel frame.

          so unless i cast my own dome etc <now the time factor comes back into it >
          i have to get a DIY oven something similar to the cass2g series something i can knock together within a weekend

          still waiting on the FornoBravo guys here in Aus to give me a price etc

          still no casa2g users replied here
