Maybe the elliptical shape has no significant heating advantages but does it give you more cooking area? Just thinking about it, I believe it does over the pure hemisphere. Can you verify that Briggs?

It also means you have to have tools with much longer handles.

[QUOTE]Just to clarify,was thinking about elliptical or oval for the base shape and not so much for the actual shape of the dome.[QUOTE]
I believe that our friend is more interested in the shape of the hearth and base. However in answer to Lwood's post I don't know. I know that in my own electric oven if I get something too close to the corner it burns more than if I get it too close to the side. I have seen the term elliptical and oval used to describe teardrop shaped, pear shaped, oval etc. Even if there is greater cooking space I would worry about there being hot and cold spots based upon the shape. Call me a fool but I think that James and others make convincing arguments for the round dome. BarbaraJones, my advice to you is to look around and see what makes sense to you and if it seems to work for people who are putting out good food then it probably will work for you.
