Oven not getting white
 
I used my oven last night for the first time since going through the cure process. It lit fine I burned it for about 2 hours and 15 minute and only got a small area of white at the top. The dome was over 800 degrees and the floor 500 plus. Having made pizza on a stone at 500 for years it was no problem and I was able to cook my pizzas in a few minutes. My question is do I need to get it hotter to get it all white the oven was plenty hot still 450 degrees by the door thermometer when I finally put the door on 2 hours later

It'll happen, give it time. If it didn't clear then the oven isn't quite hot enough. How did you measure the dome and floor temps?

You are not "cured" yet. The oven is still quite wet. After about four to ten fires like the last you should start clearing easily. I would suggest doing a couple more prolonged curing fires before cooking again. It will make life and pizza easier and better.

Terry,
If it's the Fluke company that I know, your readings should be good, and if they are good then you're really close.. Run a 4 hour burn, make pizza and see where it takes you. Your oven will become more efficient over the next 10 or so burns..

Enjoy your new oven!

Chris

PS it will go white! :-)

Agreed. I had about 6 curing fires over 2 wks building up to a a white peak but not sides. My last fire the entire dome went white all the way to the floor. I tihnk I am there!
