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!

  • Best Available WFO in Australia

    Just wondering what is rated as the best, "Rolls Royce" of woodfired ovens available in Australia. That could include both locally manufactured and also imported ones. I have viewed a very large number of suppliers/WFOs via the Internet but I would like to get some commentary on the attributes that make these ovens "the best".

    Comments please.....

    Oven design is very like boat design. Certain parameters like price, weight, size,heat retention,ease of operation, corrosion resistance, fuel consumption, materials used etc. will produce different results.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      How about starting with what you like/don't like about your current oven and find what 'fits". Myself... IF.... I had to get another it would be smaller as my boys have left so the extra size is not needed.

        I think my shopping list would include a "bigger" oven - not that the current one is small or anything. I like the idea of having a full "restaurant size" one in fact. Mine is currently a "small" restaurant size one. Only two in the house but often get friends over so numbers from 2 - 14 are typical. Would be nice to have a feature one with mozaic - imported from Italy perhaps. Haven't seen any local products that are really outstanding though I wouldn't want to spend more than $10-12,000 on the oven so may have to look closer to home.
